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

Hi Folk.. this continues to be quite a robust thread.

Please remember this is something that will be on the record for along time (anything published on the internet is archived in many ways) and keep things clean, respectful (to the extent that can be done when politicians of any variety are involved) and above board

Regards
Andy

If push comes to shove we need to do it by the book... can we hang, draw and quarter them first?

Hmmm. That looks to be overly complicated. Let's take a leaf out of the French rule book and just ignore the parts we don't like.

H'mm this thread seems to have just gone off the rails. The members of this forum who support Jim Ford's proposal really need to think about what he proposed. Its no joke! and certainly not funny.

End of my contributions.

Admin- Please close it down - disgusted.

I was simply saying that if it doesn't go as the Brexiteers promised and people end up considerably worse off, they're going to be very, very angry indeed with the main promoters of Brexit and I wouldn't want to be one of them! It's obvious and I don't see any problem with stating it.

It was a democratic decision to keep the thread open - get over it!

Should we re-run the vote on keeping the thread open, then?

The poll result has been set aside and a new, actually the same, poll is now open.

So you can change your mind if you so wish, now that you have been exposed to all the many and various opinions and arguments.

The discussion is getting a too unsavoury - if it can't be grown-up and un-provocative, it will be closed.

I'm sorry, but because there have been a number of complaints and the fact that moderators need to sleep, I'm suspending (not closing) the thread until tomorrow.

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

OK, good morning everyone. I'm reopening this thread but it will only stay open if the debate remains respectful and unprovocative. Please don't use extreme analogies that are likely to upset.

Thank you.

Ian

The poll only has two options, a bit like the referendum, I want a button that says, "I don't give a fig".

Sorry if I upset people.

(I would really, really like the poll to be re-run and the result reversed - the irony would be exquisite!)

Maybe we could be invited to sponsor threads as a fund raising exercise. That way they would have to stay open.
