LC0112G - We are talking at cross purposes. You are speaking in the strictly legal / Constitutional sense only. I am talking from the perspective of the promises they made to people, and the honesty and honour with which they claim to operate under.
So it may not have been legally binding, but it was most certainly binding in the more important sense that we were promised by our elected Govt. that they would implement the result.    At the recent election, both main parties stood on manifestos of not only leaving the EU, but the customs union and single market, so 80% (give or take) of the votes were cast on that basis.
To have a second referendum is to cancel the first one, which was the largest vote in the History of the country.
For me, that, to all intents and purposes kills what Democracy we have left.

This kind of thing reaffirms my belief in the death penalty.
If that was my lad he'd raped, the death penalty would follow shortly after his holiday.

I  believe you have got this fundamentally wrong Nick. Parliament  gave the people the power to take the decision whther to leave or remain. The people decided to leave. No if, buts or conditions.
Parliament then voted on and enacted legislation to invoke article 50, and leave on 29th March this year. No ifs, no buts, no conditions.
Most of them did this because their constituents voted for it, not because they believed in it.
Ken Clark was the only Tory to vote against the withdrawal act, so he is the only one who has any kind of right to take the stance he has taken.
But the point is, when they gave the decision to the people, and enacted legislation on the result of that, they effectively suspended the representative element of Parliament in this matter.
The situation is (and was always understood by most people imo) that the Govt gets some kind of deal. If that deal isn't acceptable, then we leave regardless.
Once the dust had settled, those who don't actually believe in the right of the people to take the decision, or even the legislation they voted to enact, started making mischief, muddying the water, frustrating the process, hoping to cause so much confusion theat the whole thing will die a death.
It might happen, but if it does, whats left of our democracy dies with it.
That is why I believe that if they make us vote again, everyone who believes in democracy, whether a leaver or remainer in the first vote, must vote for leave, to keep our democracy alive.
Im gladdened to know that several diehard remainers of my acquaintance completely agree with me.

The crass ridicule meted out by micron and barnier on sky TV this morning was astounding.
" We know what the UK doesn't want ,but not what it does want..."

Well here's a clue , everything you said Nein or Non to.

Yes they're not looking so smug this morning are they?  ::)

And I bet your mates down the local aint so cock a hoop either!  ;D

I just watched that odious squeek varadkar on sky threatening that peace was in the balance again if a hard Brexit occurs .
I said before that when the irish realise that they are all but insignificant in this process and start to hurt due to the loss of their 37% of total exports to UK , it'll reinstate my belief in Karma.

I have a neighbour that I grant wayleave to to allow him to drive over my land to his . I cannot deny or withdraw that access but I can make it very uncomfortable for a long period of time if I chose to , and when the previous incumbent  tried to grab 3 x 150m of my land some time ago he enjoyed 5 years of misery due to continual drainage work ,tree felling,planting,maintenance , hedge trimming and unfortunate vehicle breakdowns on the driveway .
I'd never upset people whose land I have to cross to go about my daily business .......


I cannot begin to describe how angry that makes me. It is beyond sick. I lived through it and saw it up close and personal. For a politician to use it in the way he does makes my skin crawl.
Whatever happens at the end of this, I will actively boycott ROI goods and intend to never go near the place again.
Makes far call difference to anyone but me, but It will make me feel a little better.
STEMO is right. Build a wall. ROI is a hostile country, always has been, always will be.

Its astonishing that she hasn't resigned, but she will win the confidence vote tomorrow and we will be in exactly the same position we are now.
Its not so much about Brexit anymore, but more about do we kill Democracy in the UK or not.

The backstop issue is a giant red herring by the way. There is a border in Ireland now. Buses going from Belfast to Dublin got stopped for random checks to check indentities, goods being transported etc.
After Brexit, checks can still be carried out away from the frontier to ensure no hard border.
It gives the EU huge leverage when negotiating the next phase though, due to "you might not like it, but if you don't sign up to it, we will initiate the backstop". So Theresa would cave in again, left right and centre.
A waste of skin masquerading as a leader.

Nice one.  :y
Which reminds me, my old 190 will need an MOT in a few weeks and I know it needs a few things done. Better get on it before the real winter weather gets here.

Just (hopefully) cured an oil leak on a Chinese motorbike with a smear of GM cam cover goo all around the gasket on the engine side casing before bolting it back on nice and tight.
Does that count, as GM products were involved ?  ;D

She will lose. She should then resign, but we are through the looking glass now, and she wont.
She will hope that if she plays for time to the absolute last minute, the EU will make some concessions to stop a hard real Brexit, and its possible she may just get lucky with that. They have history on that sort of thing.
As things stand, under current law of the land we leave on the appointed date, deal or no deal.
She is utterly useless and has brought it all on herself. She trusted the EU to negotiate in good faith  :o.....and at the same time tried to please everyone and ended up pleasing no-one.
A middle class vicars daughter with little life experience isn't the person to negotiate with the hard nosed power crazy, anti democrats across the channel.

Sad fact of life is we Brits are very critical of our own countrymen. Strange and fairly unique trait.

"I support Scotland and anyone who's playing against England" -Andy Murray

No countryman of mine.  ::)

In rugby (and everything else for that matter) the Welsh, Scots, and Irish all have one thing in common. They all want England to lose! In local pub everyone supports whoever is playing against England   ::) but in a nice way (Hmmm well nice-ish)
If I were Irish, Scottish or Welsh, I would hate the English too.

I don't understand that attitude tbh. Im not English, and I see no reason to hate the English.
I do hate you though.  :P
