You didn't mention the constant criticism/ continued campaigning by those who voted Remain!

It's called democracy, we did not give up our rights to disagree with government.
We had 30 years of brexiters constant complaints about a democratic decision to join.
How would you feel if you had have been told to shut up.

Since when do facts matter? Brexit means Brexit. Suck it up, buttercup. The EU is crumbling. Empire 2.0. Taking back control. Cake and eat it. Bloody foreigners. And all that.

Only you could count the 35% who didn't vote at all as being against Le Pen and then go on to label everyone who didn't vote for her, as being pro-EU.

Anyhow I have never been in favour of Le Pen winning, although not because of her EU views, so maybe we can move on from discussing your mathematical errors and ask whether Macron is at all likely to get a friendly reception for his EU reform plans.

One assumes that the Le Pen fans did go out and vote for her, seems ridiculous not to and hoping for the best :sarcasm:

Well, considering it's on the minds of virtually all EU members, I doubt it'll get a frosty reception.

How would you feel if you had have been told to shut up.

So if one 'side' are doing it, it is democracy!
If it's the other 'side' you put a complaining post about it?

You still do not get it do you.
You had every right to complain, no one told you to shut up.
Remainers have very right to voice their opinions about the progress of Brexit.
Get over it and accept that this is how we do things in the UK.

I put my opinion of Jeremy Hunt--that should have indicated what I thought.
I would have hoped Mrs May would have replaced him when she appointed her Cabinet Ministers.
It is not necessary to agree with everything about the Government when supporting Brexit.

I'd suggest Macron should receive a far friendlier reception than someone with EU reform plans who stands near the exit door threatening to leave.

EMR -you need to read your own posts.
You asked IF Mrs May WAS HELPING future Brexit negotiations with her 'stance ' etc. I replied that Juncker had been admonished about his 'stance', I pointed out that the Remainers also were NOT HELPING in the potential negotiations to get a good deal.

Brexit is not progressing, negotiations haven't started yet. Get it?
