Vote Labour if you want a soviet style country reminiscent of the 20th century.
What about the free sweeties promised to university students if they manage to vote Labour at home and where they study?

I cannot see how No Deal can be taken off of the table as a fall-back position in negotiations, just as you or I would be prepared to walk away from buying a new car or camera if the deal was dodgy. This is a crucial negotiating weakness.
Im prepared to walk away. Forget the whole idea and remain. But you knew Id say that .

The biggest moaners, apart from certain contributors here, have been big business. Who funds the conservative Party?

Just a thought.

There is clearly a vested interest, which is probably one of the main reasons that Comrade Corbyn and his followers said 'screw you, we want out'.

David Cameron and Gideon said we should stay in the EU, to which Corbyn's followers said 'well you would say that wouldn't you'.

The rest, as they say, is history.

But given the choice, would we rather that the country is run by those who create the wealth, or those who expect something for nothing?

Moaners in this forum ? That can't possibly be correct, not amongst this group of sensible, intelligent, fair minded, non-biased members

If the offer is too good to be true... best to walk away. Which could quite possibly explain why voters from the NE England chose to do just that even with Labour MP's promises of a 190m cheque from the EU. Given the high unemployment figures in the area... that's a lot of free sweeties to throw away.

I have heard reports in the past about students being offered sweets but never realised it included political motives

My error, I need to go back and correct.

Compared to Comrade Corbyn and Comrade McDonnell, "Red Ed" was far right wing. Off scale to those two.

Take comfort in the knowledge that you are no longer alone. There are others who voted to leave have now reached the same conclusion.

What the many have yet to realise, is that the offer to have a referendum, and, to abide by the peoples vote, was nothing more than FAKE NEWS!

If it's heading towards a Norway+ solution that many favour, aren't we better off staying as we are, ie to be rule makers and not rule takers.

If Corbyn was honest he'd come out from the closet and say he wants union with Russia!

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Is this a glimmer of reality breaking through?

Michel Barnier shifts EU position on Irish border in WTO Brexit scenario…

“We will have to find an operational way of carrying out checks and controls without putting back in place a border.”

Yeah, but he'd need something else to do. Maybe with his experience he'd make a good marriage counsellor.
