Where is the vote in the Commons going to take us next. Whether remainder or leaver, this is a disgraceful shambles!

Yes lemongrove, I have. Because I don't want people like that in my life. And I resent the negative affect it's had on so many people. And one such 'friend' has done very well financially over it.And, may I ask why it's wrong that remainers have supposedly said that some people have voted Brexit because, to put it politely, they were misinformed and didn't know all the facts etc etc. But it's ok for you say that I am an idiot. Have you seen or heard people actually in tears over Brexit. And, if you have, has it bothered you in any way; made you question your beliefs? I doubt it, because you have no self doubt whatsoever. You know for a fact that, even though less than 2 months before we leave the EU not even knowing what Brexit is you still think [sorry 'know'] that the country and it's people will be better off for it. And yet I'm the one that's an idiot.

Anyone must be an idiot if they let good friends go, or fall out with neighbours or have bust ups with their own families IMHO over political decisions.
If you choose to do so then so be it.

Labaik the idiotic part is falling out with people, and not
The voting Remain as you did.Can you not see that?

calm down dearies, no point in bursting a blood vessel

fact is we are leaving no matter how much you gurn on and on about..

it is law

majority of voters voted leave,,, easy to understand.

the law is the law..

I feel most happy for leaving totally.

also I do not insult people

my vote is just as valid as some one who voted differently to me,, that is is a democracy..

lots of hugs

Stop being so bloody patronising, andycameron...

andycameron69 Fri 08-Feb-19 18:51:10

Labaik, don't waste your time. He is just a troll, trolling- a patronising one, for sure.

MaizeiD, maybe because the people on the street in Europe can see the negative elements creeping into the EU.
Most agree with "the trading block" but not the Federal States of Europe and the totalitarian movement which is becoming apparent from Germany and France!

^ but not the Federal States of Europe and the totalitarian movement which is becoming apparent from Germany and France!^

You absolutely won't believe me, GG but there are 27 member states in the EU and quite a few of them also don't like the idea of a federal state either. It will not happen.

The 'totalitarian movement' is also a figment of your leaders' imaginations. but they have to keep the fear stoked up, don't they? Because apart from the fear factor there's no good reason for leaving the EU.
