  1. Here here!
  2. We're not in the Euro - he didn't say we were. EU has been good for avoidance of European wars - you cannot prove that! Who's fault is the debt? - Global fallout from the US sub prime policy/crash. The Euro currency unsuitable for southern European countries. The UK economy has benefited greatly from being in the EU - look it up - in the Guardian? That comparison is impossible now. .
  3. No cop out. Necessary information was available to any voter who was interested enough. The same as you can find the answers to the questions that you have answered yourself!
  4. Deep dis-satisfaction from the losing side but no complaints about method, referendum question, options or add-ons before the event! The wording of the question was made clear well before the referendum.
  5. Better not to contemplate it then.
  6. Well they can try and equate what they want to whatever they want but Con/Lab combined got over 80% of the vote and both parties supported leaving the EU as part of their manifestos (probably the only common denominator). The interference will continue from all the usual suspects. If the government fails to deliver Brexit in terms of reclaiming full sovereignty then I'm not sure that there will be anyone left who will be electable! In that case, UKIP would definitely be in line for a big rejuvenation!
  7. If you worry about context then go back my post as a reply to password. The government promised to implement the result.
  8. Notice any similarities in what I wrote? Your arguments must be flawed too! 15 hours ago, nauseus said: You are right, it is not up for debate. But you are wrong, constitutionally, as the referendum result was a valid mandate given to the government, by the people, to give notice under Article 50. The mandate was frustrated by several interventions, including that of R. Miller, with the apparent aim of delaying and possibly voiding it. The Supreme Court did not question the validity of the referendum itself but it did rule that an act of parliament was necessary to enable the actual triggering of Article 50. After more dithering by the Lords, the bill was passed and this actually removes any question of legitimacy. Gina Miller has unwittingly shot herself in the foot! The government and parliament had a constitutional duty to honour the referendum result and they know that. That is why, despite all of the interference, the democratic majority vote has been respected.

  10. Under the UK constitution it doesn't.
  11. The first vote is legitimate and binding under the UK constitution. Another referendum on the same question so soon after the first one would be against the spirit of the constitution itself, so therefore be rather unconstitutional. The shots at deflection rouse is a favourite of yours to try to mask the fact that you have no argument. I am not deflecting anything but pointing out again the lousy record of the EU on the subject of acceptance of the democratic referendums voted on by peoples of individual EU member states. Deflector shields. Mr. Spock!
  12. Ah, of course! The first referendum was a proven murky will of the people and we should adopt the EU truly democratic philosophy of vote until we get the right result. Thanks for setting that straight.
  13. We were Mars. Then we attacked!
