The electorate always get it right and as a democrat you should realise objecting to this after the event undermines democracy! :think:
No, that's totalitarianism.

People who voted leave did so knowing their own minds. Sadly too many people had been fed so many lies and distortions over the years they could not see the both arguments clearly and then decide.
The electorate always get it right and as a democrat you should realise objecting to this after the event undermines democracy! :think:
But as election after election proves the govt is never what the majority voted for.

In the last election far more people voted for parties that were in favour of a People's Vote than voted for parties that were in favour of Brexit this month. Too many of those who voted for brexit have said they were misled or thought remain would win so wanted to put two fingers up to the then Govt.

But we are were we are and I can only hope and pray my view of the future is wrong and Brexit will be a success. People's jobs depend on the outcome.

I always assume members are Brits born and bred. I stand corrected in your case. But to be honest not bothered on colour, country of birth etc of any member. We are all part of the imutual forum family so none of it matters

You did know that the Thunderbog came originally from another country. You commented on it previously.

I had no idea AAAplhathunder was not British born. But I am glad he came and has been successful due to his hard work and a touch of good fortune
Incidently I had to trawl through his posts to find the original post. What a load of rubbish he writes. So many pointless useless posts IMO. I don't normally read his drivel as there is so much of it.

Q. Why are we leaving the EU at 11pm, on January 31st?
A. Because it’s midnight on European Time! ( Dutch Time )

Not everyone knows.
