Re: The Will of the People

At least I try to be constructive in my posts. I haven’t seen one post where you have. I bet your great at party’ :roll: There's nothing constructive about brexit or your purile defence of it. You certainly wouldn't be on my guest list unless we were having a fancy dress clowns theme. You could com...

Re: The Will of the People

This is the reason leavers, fascists and racists don't want another referendum.

Re: The Will of the People

As Tim says do we keep having referendum and votes until you get what you want maybe we should follow North Korea and just eliminate any opposition I think that might be Farage's policy. If you vote for a fascist then that could be what you get. BTW not the brexit party triumph the media predicted.

Tim


Ideally we could hold a 'proper' one. Without the lies, social media interference, and with transparent funding etc.

We've got that already, it's called Brexit.

Re: The Will of the People

I think the only way forward is for a permanent customs union avoiding a hard border in Ireland and some tinkering of the political declaration to ensure workers rights and reciprocal rights of all citizens to get Labour on side and push through a deal. As of yet the EU will not agree to reciprocal...

Re: The Will of the People

Those points were relentlessly pushed on social media scooby, and given as reasons for voting leave. Even after they have been proved to be untrue they still get posted and used as fear tactics by the hard right ...., Which goes to support my proposition that if you are told a lie often enough and ...

Re: The Will of the People

What I would be interested in seeing is the links to where it has been pushed over and over that: The UK will lose its veto. The UK will have to join the EU army. The UK will be forced to join the euro. The UK will be forced to enter a EU wide tax system. I don't have the link but the obvious examp...

So pin your colours to a fascist and racist. Shades of 1930s Germany.

Re: The Will of the People

If you vote for a party led by a fascist it makes you a fascist.

If you vote for a party led by a rascist it makes you a rascist.

If you vote for a party with no manifesto you must be thick.

Am I wrong?

Re: The Will of the People

I agree with Warwick and Maud, there were European elections and there will be a bi election in Peterborough. If people desperately wanted to stay in the EU why didn’t they come out in droves and vote to stop the Brexit Party getting in? I would ask the same question if the Brexit Party get in at P...
