I did wonder what Nicola Sturgeon was on about when she said she and Sadiq Khan were looking into solutions for Scotland and London.

Bookaboo Fri 24-Jun-16 19:47:58

And the "biggest twat of the referendum" award goes to James O'Malley.

He Does realise that millions of people outside London also voted to remain, right?

JassyRadlett Fri 24-Jun-16 19:54:02

Well, what Khan's office were talking to Sturgeon's about ensuring both were independently represented in the exit negotiations.

Book, people get that but given the largest remain majorities were in Scotland, London and NI it's not really surprising that many voters from those areas feel very separate from the rest of the country, and feeling individual and collective solidarity.

Bookaboo Fri 24-Jun-16 19:59:34

I now feel separate from the rest of the country, it doesn't matter what area you're in!
It's just another 2 fingers up to the rest of us who also voted leave.

I feel totally alienated and desperately upset. I voted remain in the North West as did all my family.

Bookaboo Fri 24-Jun-16 20:05:54

Feck, I mean remain damnit!
Too tired

JassyRadlett Fri 24-Jun-16 20:32:38

Book, it's horrible, and I'm sorry. I think it must actually be worse in your situation as at least we have the solidarity of knowing that most of our neighbours voted to stay.

fassbender Fri 24-Jun-16 20:39:05

I agree with Book, I don't know anyone of my friends/family who voted Leave, yet the Leave vote got over 70% in our area. Gutted.

I've never understood why London residents feel so superior and special they are still England yet disagree with everything you couldn't pay me enough to live there.

Kimononono Fri 24-Jun-16 21:31:56

It's never gonna happen.

JassyRadlett Fri 24-Jun-16 21:51:09

That's nice, Chatty. I've never met any Londoners who felt particularly superior or special. Rather they just like and feel attached to where they live, and don't feel they should apologise for living in Loathed London.

And after a regular like we've just had it's quite natural for Londoners to question whether the majority of the rest of England shares their values and priorities, the difference in the vote being so stark.

Have you examined what that chip on your shoulder is made of?

Spinflight Fri 24-Jun-16 21:55:54

Independence for London?

Sure why not, we'll try water at £1 a pint and increase its cost with inflation.

EnthusiasmDisturbed Fri 24-Jun-16 21:58:41

What idiots signed this petition

The vote highlighted the divisions in our society this is what needs to be worked on

I have been shocked by poverty that i have see outside London, you do see it here but not on the same scale. there is so much wealth and opportunity in London surely the better solution is for that to be shared to areas in the uk that are struggling rather than London having so much and other places so little

Chattymummyhere Fri 24-Jun-16 22:01:44

Jassy

No chips but London does always down across as thought is much better than the other parts of England/uk like their way is always best when simply it's a tiny part of the whole uk who are now throwing their toys out of the pram cause boohoo is did not go their way and I have family in London so I've visited plenty I still wouldn't live there.

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Fri 24-Jun-16 22:03:39

Passport to Pimlico anyone?

JassyRadlett Fri 24-Jun-16 22:12:01

Honestl, Chatty, I think your perception of how Londoners view the rest of the country is way off. I hear a lot from people outside London about how shit the place is but very little of the converse. It does seem, though, that Londoners aren't allowed to be happy or proud about where they live which I find a bit sad and divisive.

Many Londoners in fact move to other parts of the country at some point in their lives and love both. There are many brilliant places in the rest of England that previously I'd been very interested in living. However I'm an immigrant, and the referendum has been less than pleasant, so after the vote I feel if my future is in Britain it is probably best to stick to either London or Scotland.

Not serious, but quite entertaining.

Chattymummyhere Fri 24-Jun-16 22:14:40

I know London commuters have put prices up in my city with executive homes being built just with those in mind rather than starter family homes.

London as this vote seems to of shown is very removed from the rest of England as a whole.

JassyRadlett Fri 24-Jun-16 22:15:58

Spin, are you planning an armed takeover of Beckton and the Thames aquifers? And the Thames? grin

dizzyfucker Fri 24-Jun-16 22:19:21

hmm what idiocy. Scotland has been a country for over 1000 years, how thick can you get to think you can measure London with the same yardstick.

JassyRadlett Fri 24-Jun-16 22:22:15

Empress that's brilliant, it has cheered me right up. smile

Bookaboo Fri 24-Jun-16 22:26:35

Let's sign it & see what happens, seems to be the way to roll these days.

No trade deal with the rest of the U.K. Though grin
Where ya gonna grow your veg? Keep your cows? Put your power stations? Clean your sewage?
James O'Malley is obviously not a very practical man.

SanityClause Fri 24-Jun-16 22:28:41

London as this vote seems to of shown is very removed from the rest of England as a whole.

Actually, most of the big cities in England voted to remain.

Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Cardiff, Newcastle, Liverpool.

Also Oxford, Cambridge, Brighton & Hove, Reading, Cheltenham, Warwick, Bath.

So, places where immigrants settle, and English people work side by side with them, and live next door to them, all voted to stay.

SanityClause Fri 24-Jun-16 22:29:46

Sorry, obviously Cardiff is not England. blush
