The ones supporting the idea that democracy would be implementing the result of the referendum ? Haven't a clue.

Nobody knows what the result is. The one thing all of the lying turds who peddled 'brexit' to the terminally stupid promised would never happen was "no deal", now the cunts are trying to rewrite their own tissues of lies to fit the mess they have created. They deserve hanging.

Meds, Bruno. And breathe.

Although I respond similarly on more important things, such as the Visas & Immigration bastards and tobacco policy. :o)

The result was clear, to leave the eu.

As for promising no-deal would never happen, that sounds like re-writing to me. But hey ho.

Re-writing what?

There was a vote to leave, the exact nature of the leaving is down to Parliament, and if they rule out a No Deal leaving, then that's fair dos.

The result was clear, to leave the eu.

There was a small majority, in a non-binding vote.

As for promising no-deal would never happen, that sounds like re-writing to me. But hey ho.

You must have been ignoring Rees-Mogg, Farage, Johnson and chums, before and immediately after the non-binding referendum.

All of them said that it would be unthinkable and disastrous, should we leave, without a deal.

Stephen Sackur quoted some of them, to Peter Bone, on "Hard Talk," with their comments pre-dating the non-binding referendum.

A non-binding referendum, which was affected by financial irregularities, by the Leave campaign. Financial irregularities, which would, had the referendum been legally binding, have resulted in prison sentences, for a number of people working for the Leave campaign.

But if you're hunky-dory with financial corruption, in politics, not to mention illegal data harvesting, then I don't suppose there's much hope for you!

The answer is simple, since the current score of referendum results as to whether or not to stay in the EU is 1-1, a tie breaker must be declared.

It'll be the equivelant of a penalty shoot out.

CarlosFandango - 04 Sep 2019 12:28:39 (#8 of 13)

I find it hard to credit that anyone, anyone at all, staunch leavers included, could honestly believe that the referendum result represented a safe expression of the settled will of the British people.

It doesn't even represent a safe expression of the settled will of the (then) British electorate.

A wafer-thin result born of austerity, disenchantment, naive populism - and gained on the back of flagrant lies, illegal targeting of individual voters, illegal campaign over-spending and the most generally mendacious, uncontrolled and partisan press anywhere in the Western world.

A loud Fuck Off to anyone dishonest enough to trot out the 'biggest mandate in history' toss.

Remember as well that Farage threatened armed revolt if Remain had won by the same margin.

SatelliteOne - 04 Sep 2019 13:17:09 (#10 of 13)

Threats of armed revolts from Farage can be safely ignored.

machiavelli - 04 Sep 2019 13:33:27 (#11 of 13)

Remember as well that Farage threatened armed revolt if Remain had won by the same margin.

IIRC, he said he wouldn't accept such a margin before the referendum but

"But if they don't deliver this Brexit that I spent 25 years of my life working for, then I will be forced to don khaki, pick up a rifle and head for the front lines."

sounds more like "if the Tories don't deliver Brexit". He didn't threaten to fight if Remain won. But, as S1 says, he won't be picking up any rifle.

He'll get others to do it.

Such an outburst of emotion. Maybe would have been better spent campaigning before, rather than after, the fact ?

guigal - 09 Sep 2019 10:59:28 (#13 of 13)

the exact nature of the leaving is down to Parliament,

Under the terms of article 50. This was complied with and produced the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration. If Parliament does not ratify the Agreement, the EU 27 cancel UK membership.

Non-ratification does not result in a decision about the nature of leaving. It triggers an automatic process which results in the 27 responding to the "Kick us out" notice that Boris has stuck on the country.
