It's easy, just look at who spends most of their posts whining with huge hyperbole about the impending disaster - they're remainiacs.

Classic Brexit response against the millions who believe that the best thing for the UK, it's people, it's economy it security, who are not hung up on immigration, EU and non EU.. was to remain in the EU.

Most of those were normal remainers, not "advisory", "37%" remainiacs.

But the referendum WAS only ever legally advisory, and 37% of the UK population voted to Leave. They're still facts no matter how you label those who mention them.

No, you connect it to Brexit and create an opportunity to make a juvenile derogatory comment.

Which seems to be your only purpose on this thread so I don't bother with it much any more.

Ahem.

It's not a fact that 37% of the UK population voted to leave. That percentage is significantly lower.

it's not clear who you're referring to. Most of us only acknowledge the widely known reality that Brexit has absolutely no upside.

Disaster? That's subjective. But certainly not the "red white and blue flourishing mega free trade Britain" that's been sold to the public. In fact, virtually all credible analysis suggests that should England push Britain over the cliff, Britain will need to start tightening its belts and hunker down in prep for the downsizing that will take place over the next generation or so. Even if there's a so-called "free trade" agreement, it will never facilitate what Britain enjoys now, and Britain will still be scaling back.

But that presumes Whitehall will continue to pursue its current trajectory. As the layers of the onion get peeled back revealing the core realities, and we approach "midnight in the garden of good and evil", there's growing doubt as to whether Britain will actually ultimately leave. But even then, it means political chaos for the foreseeable future. And that has lots of knock-on effects.

No, there's no upside here. Paradox. And no way out. Disaster? That's subjective.

Well now, this is interesting ……https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/may/05/thousands-scottish-independence-supporters-march-through-Glasgow Reading it, the organisers state that they’ll carry on with marches until ‘Scotland is free’- NOT just Independent or united in the UK but Free…. Uuumm… 35,000 marchers-worth too.Anyway, as we’ve masses of Victorious Euro Secessionists here who also are ‘Fighting Euro Tyranny’ can I ask how much fraternal support & funding you’ll be sending your northern Comrades then??? Cash, food, banners?? Guys&Gals, you there…?? Obviously you want to make a gesture…..:blink:.Funny, there were hundreds of them here earlier - all screaming about their Freedom & flag-waving… :blink:where're have they all gone? A united UK post 2019 or wait until the N.I/Eire border starts?? Tick-tock, tick-tock,

No, Ami connected it to Brexit with her reply to La Manch. Do brush up on your comprehension skills, it will make things so much easier for you.

I do comprehend when someone uses ad-hominem rather than a logical argument.
