    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Seriously scary stuff right there. Fuck democracy so long as you get to choose who's in power. You angling for a job at the EU? They share your views on 'the right result'.

    So your Italian mate runs from one corrupt government into the arms of another. And that makes sense to you? Why didn't he instead do what he could to speak out about domestic corruption? Use his vote accordingly? It sounds like you're suggesting the EU is the lesser of two evils. That's not a good advert for the EU.

    Speaking of internet warriors - you're quick to criticise the style of others' writing. How about YOU answering the question I set you after your tirade at me? Prove you are smarter than you sounded? Waiting to hear from you...

    You're a star, mate. Do you 'fancy' the exact same challenge I set you last night? When you're brave enough to do that you might have the right to ask others to do the same. You won't though because when you look through your previous posts you'll see plenty of bile and nastiness and will stop right there.

    For someone who doesn't give a fuck you tone your posts like someone who very much does give a fuck. Although I can't recall too many of your posts that actually put your own views across. I have however noticed far more of your posts that aggressively insult others' opinions. I didn't defend it - read my post again carefully. I refuted it. It only took me a few words to refute because it was easy to refute. I'll tell you what - you post the worst of my posts then I'll post the worst of yours and we'll see who is the most abusive, vile and obnoxious.

    Not having that. You clearly consider yourself far more enlightened than any "stupid" Leave voter. Yet, it seems, you weren't sure yourself only a few months ago if you too were also "stupid". And, let's face it, racist, swivel-eyed, fascist, thick, cunt, etc... I respect the 'you' from a few months ago who, being unsure how he would vote, wanted to look into the arguments from both sides even though the core principles of both sides were bare and obvious. Maybe you meant 'look into' the finer detail I don't know because you SURELY couldn't have meant those core principles that even the most stupid of the stupid was aware of. Fast forward to you now and you are full of contempt. Do you hold any contempt for the 'you' of a few months ago who was contemplating voting for Leave?

    Congratulations on being less abusive. You obviously took those breaths - it DOES work!! You didn't simply believe that. You said "TBH, I couldn't give a fuck if the UK left the EU". That is an aggressive indifference to the issue. You're still aggressive but definitely not indifferent. Again I ask, why not? What's changed?

    For reasons of commercial sensitivity, sometimes a lack of transparency is necessary. That is a principle throughout the whole world of business. Your "stupid" comment just makes me roll my eyes at you. Yet again. To be fair to you, you've got lots of company. In fact, one of your earliest posts was that you intended to "look a lot more deeply into both arguments" before voting. Unless prior to making that post you were COMPLETELY ignorant of the issues, this means at one point you weren't sure if you yourself was going to be "stupid" or xenephobic or racist or fascist or swivel-eyed and all the other insults thrown at Leave voters. It means you at least considered the idea of taking control of immigration. Racist. Good to kind of have you on board mate, even if you were only thinking about it for a while. And I'm looking at you as well, Jairzinho. You were in favour of Leave if only we didn't have an "awful government". You thought the MAIN argument to stay was because we had a tory government. Doesn't feel that way now from your current posts. I'm trying to resist using the word 'hypocritical'.

    Check some of the many hundreds of posts in this thread, count how many times those words are thrown around and you'll see I was proved right. So, why do you now give a fuck when previously you didn't? Please take a deep breath or two before posting - it'll help you compose yourself.

    You need to look at many of your own posts about what you would do to and wish for other people. You then need to look up the definition of the word 'irony'. While you're there, look up the words 'bogey' and 'snot' so you can finally realise what that stuff is encrusted over your fingertips.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    I take your point about the conclusion to a point (if you know what I mean..?!) Beyond that point I would say that the 'deal', 'arrangement', 'assurances' - whatever someone wanted to call it - would have to be massively impactive on the public purse or on government policy for the good side of the announcement to be outweighed by the bad or to even come close to outweighing it. By that I mean on the one hand we have thousands of jobs secured with new ones being created plus new ones for support and supply industries plus millions of pounds worth of new exports in addition to the many many millions of pounds worth of current Nissan exports. On the other hand and taking a possible 'bad' scenario, the government has promised millions of pounds to Nissan - delivered by lawful means one would surely assume - to stay in the UK and those millions were not recouped from UK tariffs (can't think why not but just for the sake of argument) so were simply a cost to the taxpayer. Even if the above were true, why would it be bad? Pretty much everyone on here slates the Tories from the 80s for not supporting industries that later went to the wall. Well, here we have a Tory government taking action to stop an industry from leaving the UK. No matter how much someone hates the Tories, surely that person should be pleased to see government acting to protect and secure British industry and British jobs? I don't get why those who criticise the lack of government action 3 decades ago criticise this government action just because they're not privvy to the fine detail - IF there is any.

    I never said this was. I am confident that it's a great outcome. The non-disclosure of the details is, I believe, being used mischievously by the Remain camp and is a red-herring. Unless I've missed a Brexiteer (in the media) complaining about the announcement, no prominent Brexiteer has complained. The issue seems to be another anti-Brexit stick with which to beat the government with. As those complaining about not knowing the details know or should know, details of government conversations with industry are sometimes commercially sensitive. Given what negotiations are coming up in the next two years, those details quite likely are even more sensitive. To put it back to you, are you not happy that thousands of UK jobs have been secured as has many millions of pounds worth of exports? Why would anyone view such an announcement as not a success? (For the avoidance of doubt and preventing an argument, I am not saying YOU don't. I haven't trawled all your posts on the issue because I'm not that sad. You may well view it as a success, you may not - I don't know but I would like to know)

    I'd advise you to pause from eating crisps and picking your nose to take some deep breaths but as I realised years ago with you Stronty, you are well past saving. If there's one person on this whole forum who deserves no luck, it's you because you're an awful human being.
