It's a shame that May is so principled. She obviously feels she now has to honour that decision based upon erroneous thinking and poor knowledge.

You can see why we don't do referenda very often.

It is funny how all those who voted to remain are always right and everyone else wrong and ignorant. Theresa May has championed some of the most important of the Leave claims. This is old news.

You might not like it but that's the way it is so get used to it cos it ain't gonna change no matter how big a tantrum you throw.

I am not throwing any tantrums I am waiting for you and all our other rapant brexiters to go into melt down when the reality of brexit light finally dawns on you.
Any one who looks at the front pages of the moronic brexit press can see that they are wetting their pants having realised that their pre and post brexit agendas are just a waste of news print and the time and intelligence if they have any of their readers.
I cannot wait for brexit light.

Nice to know that you would have accepted a vote of 1 to remain .

You are right for once, May will not allow the looney brexiters in her government to divert the UK from the path of pre brexit economic growth it was on.
She wanst to be re lected and will ignore the like of Fox etc leaving them to fume and froth on the back benches.

I wonder what the world would look like today if Columbus, Magellan, Cook etc had been remainers?

I'd say you're throwing the biggest tantrum of all tantrums in the entire history of tantrum throwing....... if not, why aren't you accepting the democratic decision to leave made by a significant majority of the electorate?

Personally, I can't wait for Brexit. :rofl:

You will be waiting a long, a very long time for any form of brexit that will satisfy you and those ultras who think like you.

:

You keep repeating this.

52% of 72% is not "a significant majority of the electorate".

Only 72% of the electorate voted in the first place. So Leave got 52% of that vote, so that means about 37% of the electorate voted to leave.

I only keep repeating it because some fidiots seem unable to understand the fact that percentages are entirely irrelevant.

What's relevant is the rules state a majority of just 1 carries the vote & the majority that carried the vote to leave was 1269500 more than one so that's an end to the matter.

Simple.

Simple.

So, "a significant majority voted to leave" AND "percentages are entirely irrelevant".

OK then.

Apparently the meaning of words is also irrelevant.

It may, however, prove not to be irrelevant when a general election comes along, which will almost certainly happen before any Brexit has happened. Maybe even more than one. Ditto during actual negotiations for said Brexit.

A vote to proceed with Brexit is meaningless as no one , not even are brexiters has a clue what brexit will actually mean.
It will be you and your fellow travellers who will be really pissed when you realise that it will not come remotely close to being anything like a Daily Moron or Ukip express scenario you voted for.
May is not that stupid although some of her brexit ministers obviously are.

Ja maybe but time will tell.

Should that happen, just watch UKIP field a candidate in every constituency & see how the vote goes.

Yes, because the same would apply to British nationals (it already does for non-EU spouses).

There is no right to family life in the UK for those who have a non-EU spouse unless you earn at least £18,600 a year, which 51% of uk workers don't.

The Home Office argued in a Parliamentary Committee that if Brits want to live with those spouses, they can do so outside the UK.
