Re: Vote Leave

A good photo, but as expressed by others a sad day. I heard one lady being interviewed on the tele who didn't know why she voted leave, and another who though Cameron would stay and sort out the mess! Really?!

And yet my 17 year old daughter, who is articulate, intelligent and very knowledgeable about the issues surrounding Brexit was denied a vote because of her age!

We have effective Border Control measures in place Ralph but you can apply to become an Aussie if you wish - if successful you will be required to drink several mugs of gumleaf tea.

We have a Federal election next Saturday, July 2 when it is compulsory for all Australians 18yrs and over to vote.
It is possible but somewhat unlikely that the incumbent conservative Liberal government led by Malcolm Turnbull will be replaced by a socialist Labour government led by Bill Shorten.

I say carpe diem, Steve!

I take it that voting rights in the UK are conferred at age 18 as they are in Oz, John.

I have followed the Brexit debate closely over the past few months watching and listening to literally hundreds of hours of analyses from both sides.
It was obvious from early on that the referendum would most likely be devisive but that's democracy where the people (misguided or not) voted to remain or leave.
I think the losers should accept the result gracefully and get on with it. The sun will rise and set tomorrow eternally and I have every confidence that in time Britain will come through the crisis smiling as they always have.

Re post -1 and the carpe diem business, if only I could rewind Mark, but at the time I was too busy playing with a camera when instead I should have been fishing.

Re: Vote Leave

You never know - but the Brexiteer politicians might find that they cannot get a reasonable resolution and so allow the topic to drift into the political long grass.

Maybe there is still hope (but I don't think it will come without cost).

Hi there Ricoh!

First of all an apology for beginning the hijack of your post - thats a great photo and an image that captures a momentous moment in time for all of us. Secondly I think you should have moved in for the close up!

Cheers,

Ralph.

No worries, mate (gosh, I'm sounding a bit like Mark ), it was inevitable.

Re: Vote Leave

It would be undemocratic.

But with the unrest in politics, almost self destruct on both sides of the house, left and right, a general election may come sooner than latter before Article 50 times out. The outcome could trigger a second referendum based on a manifesto pledge. That's the only way as I see it.
