You'll note that the remainiacs on here have little real argument and mostly revert to petty attacks on the person (or flag in this instance) - always a good sign in a discussion.

Well played by the way.

Of course the min wage has gone up.
I am sure you read about it somewhere.
Nothing to do with Brexit.

Yes the minimum wage also went up along with plenty of others.

Really explain the figures showing average wage growth in real terms still declining.
Real wage growth occurs when it is higher than the cost of living.
Whereas it is running below inflation.
Over to you.

Re: Post EU Referendum
 
I note the recent ambiguity of the Labour Party leadership as to Brexit. The ambiguity seems to be intentional and tactical, not to mention pragmatic in the present political circumstances of a troubled coalition government. But over time the public is likely to begin to view calculated ambiguity as being disingenuous.

It seems to me that Mr. Corbyn, the Labour Party leader, would best promote a Labour Party policy of a free vote by MPs on the question of Brexit. This acting to suppress the otherwise highly divisive call for a repeat referendum and reflecting the expected move to the left of the parliamentary Party in the years ahead.

Socialists, of course, are divided. On the one hand world-wide socialism is an ultimate aim. On the other hand Brussels is perceived as presently obstructionist of any Europe-wide (or individual member state) move to the political left.

Do others think a parliamentary "free vote" would be good policy? A problem with a second referendum is that the EU already has a reputation of "Referendums must be repeated until the outcome pleases the bureaucrats in Brussels"; as in Denmark and Ireland.

Did I say that, about falling house prices? I don't know who you are referring to but I am talking about those people on more than the minimum wage.

Is a free vote anonymous? That might be they way to do it. Many MPs are voting with an eye to preservation rather than assessing the merits of proposal. I'm no longer so sure about a second referendum, not just because of the 'Brussels reputation' but because there are so many voters who do not understand the issues.

And the self-righteous Brexiters hide behind wank words and play the victim at every given opportunity. What's your point?

You like going round and round in circles so much you should become a NASCAR driver.

Do you get the slightest hint of a suspicion that we've met Ozzie before?
