Australia held a referendum on same sex-marriage a couple of years back, and they legalised it a couple of months after. I believe that’s how it should work really. It’s gotta be. The focus after the referendum should be on working out a Brexit scenario that has the least amount of potential downside for everyone involved.

Well yes that probably is how it should work but unfortunately it was an ill thought out Tory led referendum to quieten their own headbangers and quash UKIP.  When that didn't work the Tories then decided that it should be a Brexit made in their own image and their own interests, no cross party consensus and no intention of acting in the best interests of the country to help reduce the negative impact (to the extent they appear to now be trying to work towards the worst possible impact).  And they'd have had it all their own way too of it wasn't for May's hubris and Gina Miller. 

And that's before we even get started on the illegalities of the whole thing.

Were the gays allowed to vote? I'm only asking because the people who had actually integrated themselves into the EU over years weren't.

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis added: “Why should we decide 31 years ahead of time what will happen in 2050?”

 

Yep, no need for forward planning with an issue like this.

To reiterate, Hunt and Johnson are full of shit.

On Thursday, arriving at the meeting, Irish prime minister Leo Varadkar warned that EU leaders had run out of “patience” with Britain and would only be minded to grant a further Brexit extension at the end of October for a general election or second referendum. 

 

“I think an extension could really only happen if it were to facilitate something like a general election in the UK, or even something like a second referendum, if they decided to have one. What won’t be entertained is an extension for further negotiations or further indicative votes. The time for that has long since passed,” he told reporters on the doorstep of the meeting.

The ones where you actually ignore most of the other polls and the elections where Labour have lost hundreds of councillors and half their MEPs.

She even went as far as saying she'd back a no deal over revoking Art 50. Doubling down on stupid.

Our country is full of cunts and we're getting the politicians, politics and brexit we deserve unfortunately. You've only got to watch any of those BBC news broadcasts that start "in a constituency that voted 57% to leave at the referendum" and they wheel out all these leave voters "leave means leave, what have the EU ever done for us", normally this happens in a constituency that has done well out of the EU. They're all fucking imbeciles and Caroline Flint is doubling down on stupid because that suits the majority of the English electorate and it's why Jeremy Corbyn has spent the last 3 years sitting on the fence.

Clip of Jeremy Hunt doing the rounds on Twitter where he says he recently visited a successful manufacturing business that would be completely wiped out in the event of no-deal, but we have to do it anyway, because democracy. Which obviously is mental, but the even madder thing is I guarantee there'll be at least one person working there who completely agrees with him.

Forward, the Light Brigade!
Was there a man dismay’d?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
Some one had blunder’d:
Theirs was not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die,
Into the Valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

I still see posts like the following on a regular basis.

 

Think we’ve got to all start believing in ourselves, our friends, our neighbours etc. and supporting local business.

 

How many mouths do they think local businesses can feed, how many people can they clothe, how many people can they supply with medicine etc.... Ironic that these posts are made using Hardware which is more than likely imported and using a Platform which isn't English. 

A lot of local businesses will also be dependant on current trade deals to survive. 

 

People are so stupid.

It's amazing how all the thicko's compare fighting in two World Wars with a potential economic collapse and a severe lack of trading partners. They also seem oblivious to the fact the UK were labelled the sick man of Europe throughout the late 60's and 70's. Obviously the the winter of discontent, the three day week and the IMF bailout never happened.
