The country - albeit not you or your chum BoJo - are quite concerned about his remarks. Just a recap on what he said

The Country ? Why you asked everyone in Britain have you ?

What quote from Aaron Banks?

Wtf have you been smoking, as I have not quoted him, ever on this forum?

And no I have not changed my tune on JC at all, Labour, as in the party, not the leader, have a mandate to deliver brexit, or did you forget their manifesto ?

They are not going to suddenly cancel it just because you don't like the result, so try not to get ahead of yourself.

Sorry, my bad. It wasn't Crooked Aaron that you quoted but Daniel Hannan when you took his words as being quotes from Remainers.

I'm not saying that if Labour won they would cancel Brexit, just wonder if you now think they will have the ability to deliver it. Will they now be able to deliver on their other promises too or just the ones you like?

No Andrew, the point Iím trying portray, which youíre completely missing is that while you wish for the end of the current Tory Gov, whether it be a Labour one or not, either way, itís not the end of Brexit.

Correct. The only difference will be the bill we have to pay, since Labour seem quite happy to pay whatever the EU ask for.

Yes. It's a bit rich certain people claiming HMG's negotiating strategy is pathetic when their favoured alternative is Labour who's strategy has been to tell the EU they want a deal at any price.

Yes they are excellent at that it's true. Every Labour manifesto is littered with promises of more spending as we saw last time out. Nationalisation, paying off student debts etc. etc. It'd be funny if it wasn't so pathetically cynical.

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

Labour’s ideals are to spread the money of other people’s. In Labour’s world, you don’t have to strive to work hard, study to better yourself, because you will be given everything you need on a platter for free.

The problem with that is that when you've milked the rich for all it's worth, where will the money come from then?

I completely agree with the idea of a mixed economy to ensure that the less well off are provided for, but the Corbyn/McDonnell Marxist approach fails to recognise that you can't have your cake and eat it too. Once the money is gone, it is gone. Why are people not learning from the mistakes made by other countries? This approach has failed wherever it has been tried. All it does is to make everyone poor (apart from a small elite at the top).
