Did you vote out of the EU? Are you doubting your decision?

And Leaver's think Remainer's promote a Project Fear! :laugh:

It's a 71 minute propaganda video featuring the likes of Kelvin Mackenzie.

Most people will get the gist after 5 minutes.

I voted leave.

The EU is a partial example of the kid's game "Buckeroo" where the poor mule (the EU members) get saddled with an ever increasing burden, until it throws everything off. Some chance of that happening. In the real world it would have collapsed and died.

If we don't leave now then there will soon be an increase in what we have to pay in.

What we should have done, was stop paying anything into the EU until we actually left. Then told them to "send us a bill and we'll go through it." That's what the French would have done. For them the rules "fit where they touch."

It seems that young people tend not to want to leave. But it will be they who suffer the most long term with the cost of this millstone.
At the moment, the reason some young well educated neighbours voted remain is because, "if we left, foreign holidays would cost more." Doh!

As we import more from Europe than we export to them. What's the problem with "No deal?"

As an example. I can manage without Spanish tomatoes for a couple of weeks. Can the producers manage with no sales to the UK? There would be a rapid compromise, if we'd the guts to do it.

Air freight is relativbely cheap these days. Look at the country of origin on some vegetables in supermarkets. Just import more stuff from other countries.

It was "published" before the referendum. So I applied Nabby's Law. :)

^ I believe this is an appropriate use of a funny, as i am applauding rich's comment. Even though he is a Remainer ;)

Same filmmaker earlier promoted climate change denialism with highly discredited The Great Global Warming Swindle (Ofcom upheld the complaints of various featured scientists over being misled and misrepresented).

Does AVF policy now dictate an explanation with every funny? :D
Clarification was requested earlier so I'm showing an example where I believe it is appropriate to funny a poster who is on the other side... :D

IIRC JC's brother also has said GW is a myth.

Voted out. No regrets. Though, tired of the relentless flight that remain is putting up.

Gone far beyond i expected.

Not left yet like the poster above but aiming to do so within 15 years:D

I voted out and haven’t had any doubts about my vote. Don’t think any of my friends/family who voted out have changed their minds either.

I was, in all truth 50/50 at the time of the referendum- thinking staying on would not cause any disruptions. Keep things as they are etc...

But now I'm 100% leave as I know so much more about the political side of the EU. It is not what I want our country to be part of.

Long before the 2016 referendum I hadn't given the EU much thought, couldn't really care less one way or the other.

It was the lead up to the referendum with the continuous bombardment to stay in the EU from government sources, from most of the press, from big businesses, and even from senior members of the armed forces which sparked my interest.

After some weeks of research and careful listening to what Call-me-Dave had to say including members of parliament, to what the media were saying, to what the EU were saying: going on and on about the disaster, the catastrophe, calamity, dropping into the abyss etc should I or other people vote to leave the EU - I smelt a rat, something was wrong, too much biased propaganda, too much pro-EU publicity.

Basically, there was no balance. So I voted to leave the EU.

...And how the government and the EU have handled the result of the 2016 referendum over the last 3 years has greatly strengthened my leave stance.

I voted leave, and since the HOC has decided to be idiots my resolve has only gotten stronger. Out at any cost now.

Piers Corbyn is an idiot. A fringe scientist. His relationship with his brother does in no way validate the nonsense he attempts to pass off as science.

He 100% refutes any connection between CO2 and heating and actually stated that the Earth is now cooling, something that is self evidently bullsine to anyone with eyes, ears, and the ability to watch the weather forecasts.

Consequently, he's a big favourite on LBC and Talk Radio where his nonsense is given equal prominence and reverence as that of mainstream science.

A better question would be:

Those Labour voters that voted to leave (no deal), would they vote Labour again.....?

Me personally, I would vote leave again. (I am not a Labour voter by the way)
Not just because we won but it's highlighted how out of touch the elitists are with common folks.
We voted for one thing, the powers want something else.

Will future general election results be conducted and looked upon in the same way, sorry, I don't agree with this result, it's not the PM I wanted, can we please have another and another until I am happy.
Next up, lets go marching, smash up some shops, create chaos, fly some balloons, stop working folks from their daily routines. Is this what the United Kingdom is now? We're not bloody French OK!

What ever happened to accepting the democratic process, if that's the case lets move to dictatorship, might as well.

Joke of a nation! Sad but true!

Piers Corbyn is a meteorologist and has a BSc in Physics and an MSc in Astrophysics. Apparently he has received international acclaim for the accuracy of his long-range weather forecasts.

He's claimed with revolutionary zeal that man-made climate change does not exist and is enthusiastically against all this 'climate-change nonsense'.

Quite a character.

Any cost?

What would you personally give up for Brexit? Serious question.
I was going to buy a 3000w vacuum.... but would forego that if someone threw a custard pie at Guy, Hammond, Miller, Swinton, Corbyn, Tusk, Barnier, Blair, Major, Brown and the local drunk Juncker.. :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

EU was always a sticky subject, numerous PM's had issues with it going back to the years of Harold Wilson but slowly and surely we have merged into a part of the EU, some good and some bad so I presume the ref 2016 solved all that in go but justice is yet to be delivered...

Then you have opportunity seekers like Miller and teabag Jo Swinton looking to further there own ambitions.

How about after NI has merged with Ireland to become one and the Jocks get the William Wallace freedom and rule under Krankie,Plaid Cyrumu what it's face push in that direction also, we divide what remains of the UK into two. One free of the EU and the under the mercy of Macron, Merkel and whoever corrupt enough to replace Tusk and Jucker (experts in creating tax havens or embezzling millions whilst power) :thumbsup:
