Ideas for banners/placards/signs at 23rd June March?

Thought it might be nice to have a place to store up ideas, particularly from those who maybe can't make it, of what we can put on signs? Personally, I like the United We Stand Divided We Fall and Jo Cox reminiscent - but I would also like some humour. It's a sh*tstorm so I'm sure the vipers can come up with some corkers!
Any suggestions?

How about 'we won, get over it' on a large balloon that gradually deflates over half an hour or so.
Maybe cleverer, if like the 'smutty joke', when it is mostly deflated the letters recombine to give a different message?

"we hate democracy"
"Fuck off plebs, we know better"
"Save Tarquin's gap year now!"

Sadly slogans like that aren't even necessary infinite

This is a fuck up of epic proportions and not even Leavers can robustly defend it.

Not that they ever really have.

But today has been a perfect example of what a mess this is.

TM spends days arguing the toss over the wording of the backstop and the EU blows it right out of the water straight away because it's pie in the sky nonsense.

Since Leavers are clearly lurking, could you give us an update on your thoughts about the latest developments.

Are you still happy with how things are progressing?

surferjet Fri 08-Jun-18 20:18:12

Tbh I don’t read the ref board like I used to bear, but if something comes up in active convos I’ll look at it.

I want TM thrown in the tower & someone with bollocks to take over.
She’s useless.
We need someone tough. she isn’t.
Brexiteers will not be fobbed off with something only you lot are happy with.

So no, I’m not happy atm, but still confident there’s enough decent people in power to fulfill the will of the people.

But if we don’t get what we want & the snide, snivelling, EU arse lickers get their way they’ll be riots.
Bring it on.

bearbehind Fri 08-Jun-18 20:22:59

Thanks for the reply surfer

I agree about TM, it's been obvious from day 1, but you've previously sung her praises.

Trouble is, no one is going to take over because it's a poison chalice. Heckling from the back seat is one thing but JRM et al aren't going to stuck their necks out and take over.

As for riots- that's not going to happen.

it's clear leaving the EU is going to have a negative effect on most people.

Don't think everyone is in your fortunate position to not care about that.

surferjet Fri 08-Jun-18 20:33:33

Yes, I was a big fan of TM initially, I really believed in her, but as time goes on I just shake my head in despair - what is she doing?
No one is happy atm, absolutely no one.
She needs to go.

& maybe not physical riots, ( although you never know? ) but people will distrust politicians for ever, they’ll never bother voting again because what’s the point? they’ll feel their voice means nothing - it really will be the death of democracy.

So really, it’s in everyone’s interest that Brexit is delivered successfully.

bearbehind Fri 08-Jun-18 20:38:30

But there is no 'successful Brexit' that's actually possible.

That's precisely the problem here.

The Leavers pipe dream of all the upside with none of the downsides, can't happen.

The sooner Leavers acknowledge that, the sooner we can move on.

InfiniteSheldon Fri 08-Jun-18 21:46:23

I agree Bear there's no real Brexit now the minority has won, the death knell has rung for democracy and the established monied elite win over the people you must be so proud.

bionicnemonic Fri 08-Jun-18 21:54:16

How can people say the majority want to leave when 13 million people who were eligible didn’t even vote?

bearbehind Fri 08-Jun-18 22:04:24

infite, the irony is that the established monied elite were on your side- how do you explain that?

bearbehind Fri 08-Jun-18 22:09:06

Hopefully leavers will start to recognise that there's more to democracy than voting for the impossible just because you think it should be able to happen.

time4chocolate Fri 08-Jun-18 22:10:02

Let’s be honest the EU really have no incentive to negotiate (not really their thing). They have spent the last eighteen months sitting back hoping the government implodes and the whole thing gets called off.

I think TM needs to go now (shame as I did initially think she was the right person for the job) and someone with a big pair of bollocks needs to step up and take it on. Bluffs need to be called and we need to be prepared to walk away, only then will there be some meaningful negotiation and not just ‘non’ ‘nein’. Anyway, I digress and aware that this is not what this thread is about so will finish on topic(ish)by saying nice placard suggestions infinitesheldon😂

bearbehind Fri 08-Jun-18 22:16:05

time the thing is, the EU aren't being the bullies you think they are.

They're just playing by the rules and not allowing us to break them.

The EU have been unequivocal from the start. It's our government that have been pissing around.

It's good you've acknowledged TM isn't up to the job. A few months ago you and surfer wouldn't hear of that.

Hopefully in time you'll see no one could make this work in the time frame with fuck all planning which is why Brexit can't happen now.

Something about David Davis and the fucking SAS or whatever it was. It's all over Twitter at the moment. I snort with laughter every time.

surferjet Fri 08-Jun-18 22:28:21

How did we ever manage before we joined the EU ( only a few decades ago )
Remainers talk as if being part of the EU is all we’ve ever known & nothing else is ever possible. It’s really weird.

bearbehind Fri 08-Jun-18 22:31:09

It's not weird at all.

We simply don't have the infrastructure to become independent again.

The world is a smaller place. We have too many beneficial links.

Why are you so anti anything that involves the EU, even if it benefits us.

argumentativefeminist Fri 08-Jun-18 22:31:57

Don't worry @surferjet, with Davis' hand to hand combat skills and boyish, golf club chino wearing masculinity, we'll be back to the heady 1950s/60s in no time.

time4chocolate Fri 08-Jun-18 22:47:04

Bear - I didn’t say the EU were being bullies but said that they won’t negotiate until the 11th hour in the hope there is an implosion before that.

I am disappointed in TM absolutely and certainly don’t have a problem saying that.

I have had a novel idea though - how about we remain, don’t pay our membership fees and then see how long it takes us to be removed. In my experience I have found that to be quite effective wink Sorry OP for derail (again)

bearbehind Fri 08-Jun-18 22:53:14

Remain and not paying our fees isn't an option.

We're leaving in March unless we revoke A50.

Leavers really are in some kind of parallel universe where the facts simply don't matter.

Even if there ever was a modicum of hope that we hld the cards, we've screwed that right up with the public display of discord amongst the cabinet.

We have no cards to play.

We have no bluff to call.

Only a tiny proption of the world, i.e., leavers, don't see that.

Everyone else thinks we're fools,

surferjet Fri 08-Jun-18 23:11:57

When did you conduct your world survey bear? How many of the worlds 7 billion people think we’re fools?

So you have a chart ?
