I had no idea about Pickfords - they moved us once and broke a lot. I think that probably makes it Labour's fault.

Maybe they'll nationalise deliveroo or biscuits or emojis.

They won't get my vote ever again.
I think the majority of those who voted in the referendum to leave the E.U. had something to do with it don't you? It wasn't simply simply the Tory party Though the party gets the blame of course!! I think you should remember you were in the minority and perhaps should graciously accept the decision of the majority! Yes I know, that won't be popular here also!!!

Not to mention enthusiastically cheerleading the enlargement of the Union to include the former Soviet bloc countries.

And yet, somehow all those things are "bad" now, and "imposed" on the UK by the EU. I reckon it's like the ECHR or the kipper thing.

They may have confused Page 3 with the Tory manifesto.

Well of course. What other government was there that chose to enact the advisory referendum when so few people actually voted for the change.
I think you should remember you were in the minority
Correction. Majority.

Of course we all know that they should have voted to make sure but it's wrong to say stuff like the nation voted for it or those not wanting to leave were in the minority. Not voting for a change is an action more likely to not bring about change so logically the non-voters didn't want change.

Anyway, here's the indication of how many voted to leave. It's a minority.

Good chart. I wonder what the turn out on a second referendum would be. I have a feeling Leavers would boycott it, given that their entire campaign has been run on emotional grounds.

Did you not read the post? Of those officially eligible, 37% voted to leave.

Fake news. The referendum vote overwhelmingly voted leave. 99.9999% wasn't it?
