I may be a sore loser but when Nissan move, 8000 people lose their jobs and the local economy completely tanks in Sunderland I'll shall be there to remind them of their vote to Leave.

Blackadder: Marvelous thing, democracy. Look at Manchester: population, 60,000; electoral roll, 3.

Blackadder: Correct…

Miggins: …but it hardly seems fair to me.

Blackadder: Of course it’s not fair — and a damn good thing too. Give the like of Baldrick the vote and we’ll be back to cavorting druids, death by

I would just love to see the look on their faces when they get told they aren't going to get the money with a flippant "well you voted for it"

So basically all the old cunts (sorry, Ed the confessor) who don't have to live with this decision have fucked over the millenials.

That and protest votes - Fucking Sunderland man - one of the biggest Leave constituencies, yet a massive percentage of their jobs come from Nissan and the EU tax breaks they get. When they pull out and move to an EU country it's going to fucking cripple them but they all showed up to stick it to the government. Same for Wales.

It's mental.

Couple of belters in this mix - checked myself thinking "I wonder where he's getting these tunes from?" the other day. Surely the ultimate sign of respect for any DJ. wink

Chance that Britain will vote to leave European Union:

STAY
84.1%
26.3% since 1am 6/14

LEAVE
15.7%
-26.6%
This Brexit page averages odds from both Betfair and PredictIt

Could be a landslide.

Betfair is 10/1 leave, 3/1 remain.

That's good isn't it?

Aye, my posts were pretty ambiguous TBF, it could have went either way.

Just won the "Wooden spoon" award in the office sweep stake for the Ukraine finishing with 0 points.

Anyone seen this?

Supposed to give a balanced view and lines through all the lies from both camps.

Wally - the referendum has showed how mixed people's view are, so I wouldn't expect Farage to disappear even if the majority vote remain. I reckon it's going to be fairly close, but with a remain majority. Perhaps that might push 'ole Dave' to have another chat with the EU.

Perhaps - he disappeared after the general election for a while (didn't he resign the leadership then come back or something?) - Maybe it is just hope but I would certainly think a loss is going to knock the wind out of their sails for a while. They can't start demanding yearly referendums until they win can they? UKIP are a one issue party - they get into the spotlight while immigration is in the spotlight - as soon as this is done, if they lose, the country will move onto the next issue which they have no voice in.

Maybe you want to familiarise yourself with some of the articles from:

http://johnmccormick.eu/benefits-of-the-european-union/

e.g. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/po … 50626.html

e.g. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/ … -10-things

Thinks like "Peace" are quite important after two world wars started in Europe. I didn't know the EU won the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize.

No one is saying it's perfect saying it's not a positive force and that it's had some very important benefits is just wrong.

I think if we remain, that'll be the end of Farage and UKIP - every time he says anything people will just point to the referendum and say STFU, it's not what people want.

You're very welcome my aptly monikered chum.

Wally comes from my surname, Walton, not my behaviour but you run with that if you like.

Feel free to respond to any of my posts where I replied to yours btw.

BantDad comes from the diseased mind of Dermot - you keep running with it though Mr 'Wally' Walton.

If I honestly saw value in continuing to address your somewhat monochrome view of the future of the legalities of any 'divorce' process then I would but, and do correct me if I'm wrong here Wally - you come across as ever-so-slightly entrenched in your view so, experience suggests to me, it's probably best to agree to differ...?!

Not at all - that's kind of where the frustration comes from - there is no serious evidence that leaving the EU will do us any good at all and common sense / likely outcomes look to be unbelievably bleak.

I have an open mind but unlike most, I've done my research and found literally nothing past propaganda exploiting racism, xenophobia and pointing the finger at some one else. The number of outright lies on some of the leave documentation that has come through my door has been staggering.

Your discussion on the video I posted was centered around one sentence that you (imo) misinterpreted the meaning of and completely disregarded the rest of his seriously informative post for that reason. If you can't listen to facts, then there's not much help for you.

Tell you what - WHY are you voting to Leave? - we can have an honest and open discussion about those reasons as long as they aren't wishy washy "Sticking it to the EU", "National Pride", "Make Britain Great again" bullshit but factual statements.

I shall refrain from calling you BantDad.

Seeing Cameron and Osborne leaving Downing Street with their tails between their legs on Friday would be a good start

To be replaced by Boris Johnson and Michael Gove - are you out of your fucking mind? lol.

Incidentally, Cameron has steadfastly said he's not going anywhere.

Agree, from a purely risk assessed standpoint, why chance it? But what I would say is lobbying by corporates is just a rife in Brussels as it is in Westminster.

For sure - all I'll say is that the EU introduced this directive so from a worker's rights perspective they simply cannot be owned by corporate overlords the way Cameron et al are by Murdoch and co. As Murdoch himself famously said "When I go to Westminister, they do what I say. When I go to the EU, they take no notice".

Lobbying by corporates is definitely a thing in the EU. It's why their business law updates are so heavily in favour of places like google and microsoft. Small tech companies are often left scratching their heads at some of the laws introduced as they are no assistance to them but that's life sadly. If anyone thinks coming out the EU is going to stop that, they need their head examined.

As that Prof. Dougan said though - when the raise an issue in the EU, they all get round the table until the come to a collective agreement. To put it in mildly racist terms so people like BantDad and Matt Black can understand, you can always rely on the French to dodge a days work and put their workers first. You're just not going to get that with the Tories in total power. To think otherwise is lunacy.
