Do you really believe that racsim had no influence on the vote in the referendum? Do you really believe that those who voted to leave were not influence whatsoever on the leave campaigns promises? Do you really believe that the assurances by the leave campaign that there would be serious discussions about UK being part of EAA or EFTA were nothing but a pack of lies? Do you really believe that those who voted leave did so on that basis of reliquishing European democracy to the rights of havngfacism impoosed by the UK government.

"This vote succeeded in what it achieved - it made scapegoats of immigrants for a government no longer to control the economy and serve the people it was elected to represent."
That I am afraid is a unique Jimmy interpretation of the referendum result. In reality it was a vote to indicate whether we should stay or leave the EU. Why people voted the way they did may or may not be demonstrated by subsequent polls. Recently the accuracy of all polls has been shown to be questionable,

To say " our parents lived through periods of mass unemployment" is perfectly true-as the economy crashes so do job opportunities. For the same reason employment in heavy industry and mining declined steadily post WW2 in the UK. Structural changes and globalism forced change.
Production will go to the location where the costs of production are lowest. Why mine coal in the UK when it can be shipped in at less cost? Why make steel when China can provide it for less cost?
It is an extremely naive view to think it is deliberate government policy to destroy any industry just to spite the unions. It is purely an economic decision, although when pip squeak union leaders think they can dictate to government I am sure the government of the day does not mind a slight investment to poke them in the eye and demonstrate who is boss. Government does not create the changed economic realities, all it can do is react to them. It is the type of reaction from government that requires censure.
A typical example is the aircraft industry through the fifties. A total clusterf*****k of companies, projects, wasted investments....
The list goes on. The industry should have been rationalised and shrunk long before events forced the changes. Market leaders in the late 40's

the other side is calling names - so i'm going to call names. i'm going to out-stupid the stupidest bastards in the world.

i'm not saying we will recreate jerusalem in england's green and pleasant land.

what i am saying is that our parents lived through periods of mass unemployment, and they taught most of us there was an intrinsic value in being someone that was useful enough to society to have gainful employment.

it wasn't going to be fulfilling, a dream come true - but it was going to feel better than being superfluous to society and living on what the rich allowed to trickle down.

membership of the commonmarket has entailed losing those jobs. we couldn't control it. the way we sustained fullish employment was subsidy. according to eu rules - that is unfair competition - despite the fact that all our eu friends are in deadly competition with us, and practice many forms of protectionism on the sly.

calling me names won't alter those facts. the out vote was a reaction from all those areas of our country where the commonmarket has caused mass unemployment with all its social problems.

now give us some tdea of how we would call self interested other countries to account - should we stay in the EU, which is what you and most uk politicians want......or you could just go back to name calling.

By far the worst offender by a country mile is your chief ally Teribus, whom I have never ONCE heard you criticise. It behoves you to keep quiet about insults, etc., at least until you have been free of the habit for a goodly while. It seems that you share the Teribus school of thought, which dictates that you think it's right and proper to insult, ridicule and abuse the names of people simply because you think you're right and they're wrong. It's even worse than that, actually. You KNOW you're right, so you think. I'm not exactly innocent myself (I'm trying harder), so I tend to avoid diversions of this kind, so please just cut the sanctimonious bullshit. It really doesn't suit you, literally. Amen.

Nothing wrong with discussion, it can continue up to the wire. It is what democracy thrives on. It all goes pear-shaped when opposing sides turn their differing points of view into an insulting hate fest.
Perhaps some use this as a ploy to have threads closed when the ayes seem to have it. Possibly we should have the tune from Deliverance

Iain's - there are plenty of Brexiteers who post very aggressively. Your friend Terriblyboring is a prime example - rudeness and name-calling from the outset, naysaying without providing any kind of evidence for his claims.

I have personally been told on numerous occasions, on other forums, that I'm a 'traitor' because I voted Remain, and that I should either be deported, or arrested and shot. I've also been frequently told that I have no right to oppose Brexit, and that I'm denied that right 'because we voted for democracy', so I must 'shut up and get behind my country or suffer the consequences'.

I have never made death threats against Brexit supporters, I've never told them to shut up or suffer the consequences.

Democracy involves discussion and constant review of issues and decisions made, and it provides for changes of heart, and changes to decisions, in the light of changing circumstances. Democracy encourages open discussion, it does not stifle it.

Think about that.

It has also exposed how thin their take on democracy is their joining league with a Party with terrorist links and bunging then a billion of taxpayers money- you couldn't make it up

The government is a minority, not a majority - that's the reason it had to spend one-and-a-half billion pounds of taxpayers' money to bribe the DUP to enter into a Confidence and Supply Agreement. The C&SA is not the same thing as a Coalition, and does not make the DUP a part of the government.

The Tories are a minority government, and it is completely undemocratic of them to expect to hold a majority on Parliamentary committees (thereby enabling them to railroad through amendments to EU Laws, and other subsequent Law-making, which otherwise may be defeated at the committee stage).

Tootler.Of 168 polls carried out since the EU referendum wording was decided last September(2015), fewer than a third (55 in all) predicted a leave vote.

The actual result on the night came in at 51.9% leave, 48.1% remain. Just 16 of 168 individual polls predicted a 52:48 split in favour of leave.

Polls did give a sense of the swing to leave in the first weeks of June, but edged back to favour remain in the final days before the vote. Just two of six polls released the day before the referendum – those carried out by TNS and Opinium – gave leave the edge.

Just goes to show that no politician should take things for granted.
Plan A was shambolic, plan B was not even contemplated. The present is the result.

Not rubbish, I'm afraid. It matters a big jot, because this is a minority government that has a confidence and supply deal with the DUP. A true reflection of this in committees would mean that no committee had an overall majority of Tories. It is not a coalition government and the Tories do not have a Commons majority in any constitutional sense whatsoever. The deal with the DUP is an informal arrangement that is neither legally nor constitutionally binding. Gina Miller this week has demonstrated that it was improper to offer the deal to the DUP without parliamentary approval. This attempted usurping of powers malarkey knows no bounds with this lot. You guys blathered on interminably during the campaign about "taking back control." So here we have a prime minister who failed to win a mandate improperly grabbing as much control as she can. Ironic really.

"After all it was a leaver who murdered an MP"

Not only stupid but inaccurate...


OK you can argue that technically my statement about Thomas Mair being a leaver was inaccurate. Maybe Imshould have said "Leave supporter" but stupid? Justify that statement because I contend it's not.

As far as "Brexshitter" and similar terms are concerned I no longer use such terms. I normally refer to leave supporters either as "Brexiters" or "Leavers" and I ask Leave supporters to treat us with respect and use similar terms for Remain supporters.

We are not traitors. We believe that Brexit will profoundly damage the UK and we don't want that to happen and have a perfect right to argue against Brexit. The UK is a democracy and part of being a democracy is the right to disagree and to do so lawfully. The extreme Brexiters seem hell bent on shutting any debate down, possibly because they believe in their heart of hearts they have a very weak case so they invoke the word "democracy" to do the opposite and stifle democratic debate.

As to Cameron's "we'll implement the result". Although they didn't put it that way, the Supreme Court in the Miller case made it pretty clear he had no right to make that statement as it was up to parliament to decide what to do about the result as the referendum was advisory.

"Corbyn is whipping his MPs to vote against Brexit even though he privately supports it. Caroline Flint says MPs should rebel against the Labour whip. Thanks to Keir Starmer Labour officially want to stay in the single market during the transition, even though Corbynistas think the single market is a neoliberal tool of the bosses and want to leave it. Tom Watson says Labour could stay in the single market forever, yet John McDonnell says we have to leave it to respect the referendum result. Frontbenchers Jon Ashworth and Jenny Chapman say Watson is wrong, Heidi Alexander and Alison McGovern say he is right. Diane Abbott and Clive Lewis say Labour must support free movement, Corbyn and Starmer say free movement will end after Brexit. Barry Gardiner says staying in the customs union would be a "disaster", yet Starmer says we should remain in "a" customs union during the transition. Watson says we could stay in indefinitely. Tony Blair says we should just stay in the EU. Got that?"

Mebbe. But there's a good chance that that particular hate crime, committed by a white supremacist, along with many others following the referendum, would not have happened had it not been for the divisive, xenophobic, racist leave campaign. As with hurricanes and global warming, individual crimes are not predictable nor able to be ascribed to brexit, but there can't be much doubt that months of spouting inflammatory racist nonsense about the country being taken over, swamped by foreigners coming here for a benefits lifestyle or taking our jobs, driving down wages, burdening our health service and filling our air with nasty foreign languages led to consequences.

"After all it was a leaver who murdered an MP"

Not only stupid but inaccurate.

Jo Cox MP was murdered on the 16th June 2016. He murderer, Thomas Mair, was arrested almost immediately after the murder on the same day. Mair was charged on the 18th June and appeared at the Old Baily on the 20th June.

The EU Referendum was held on the 23rd June, 2016. Being in custody Thomas Mair could not cast a vote, so he can hardly be described as a leaver unless of course you want all those who did not vote classed as "leavers".

What a remarkably stupid, divisive statement. According to that font of socialist wisdom the gruniard, the man was an extreme rightwing terrorist. To include him with those that voted leave is the hall mark of a fool.

Simple answer. If leavers really believe in UK sovereignty, then let them pay for a referendum on every proposed SI on a departure from implementing EU laws in then UK to the letter. Let leavers pay for a referendum on whether or not to implement future EU laws and regulations where they would have had an impact in UK. Let the people decide, not excrement like May, Rudd, Johnson, Gove.
