...Who are Arses to pretend that they spoke with one voice in June 2016, that they all wanted the same thing and voters all voted for the same version of Brexit. It's was Bleeding Obvious that the official Leave campaign had a wide range of views what Brexit should be, and voters equally decided their vote for diverse reasons, anything but knowing precisely what they would get.

(Just listening to some ArseHat politician on Piennar's Politics, argh!!)

You are right but it's s beautiful day outside and the Brexit train has left now. I just made the decision to let the news wash over me in recent times and in a lot happier for it.

good point about the weather... must go enjoy smile

Spooky - I feel very stabby towards remainers who six months on are still crying and moaning and full of doom and gloom but hey ho life goes on. Oh and I recall you saying you voted for Clinton, guess it's not your year OP.

Untrue if you're labelling me a moaner or doom-monger, Rorty.
I hate lies, rewriting history... it's a lie for Leavers to say they all spoke with one voice about what Leave meant.

Most the things I voted for this yr came good, btw, just not the big ones.

Thank fuck I'm not French as well, at least.

In some countries, they do stab people who are democratic. Maybe you should move there? smile

If youre talking single market..... clearly its the remainers who werent paying attention.

....and theres masses more from all leading remain advocates.

Chris1234567890 Sun 04-Dec-16 23:41:34

Lets be clear........ if you cant rely on the PM of the day spelling it out, who did you rely on?

Thinking of Jo Cox this really isn't a nice title sad

GraceGrape Sun 04-Dec-16 23:51:41

Well, if you're talking single market, there is also plenty of evidence of Leave campaigners saying they want to be in it....

Yeah, agree with HoneyDragon here.

I know it's a well-established joke phrase on MN, but in this context not great.

Report and get title changed?

I'm hoping Brexiters have the balls to admit their vote when it becomes clear living standards have dropped off a cliff and everything costs 10-20% more than it used to, whilst we're essentially still in Europe, paying to trade, just without an input.

Ive been looking at computer equipment recently for my business and its now 20% more expensive than pre referendum and there's a huge question mark about trading in mainland Europe. Food will be going up soon. I fail to see how any of this is a good thing for GB plc.

And Boris Johnson as our representative ffs.

Yay. We'll be some tin pot basket case by 2018.

I've pretty much given up trying to reason with Brexiteer's since I'm hamstrung by the need to make sense.

WrongTrouser Tue 06-Dec-16 17:47:38

Considering the amount of ill feeling the referendum has generated, and the division caused and unhealthily febrile atmosphere (not to mention the murder of Jo Cox) I think your post title is ill judged OP.

WrongTrouser Tue 06-Dec-16 17:53:14

although I am enjoying your capitalisation of Bleeding Obvious..

SeekEveryEveryKnownHidingPlace Tue 06-Dec-16 18:12:41

Perhaps a common phrase on MN is not best placed here, but I'm sure op only meant it in the way it's usually used here.

Re. Leavers: the funny thing is that half the time they'll tell you what a diverse bunch they are and how many reasons there were to vote leave! (They won't usually name one of those reasons). But now, yes, it's all WE SPOKE WITH ONE VOICE!

InfiniteSheldon Fri 09-Dec-16 06:40:18

Leavers want to Leave the EU that's the one voice same as Remainers want to Remain pot and kettle OP. My ideal Brexit scenario will be different to yours and to many other Leavers, your now rejected version of Remain is different to that of many other Remainers and your title is abhorrent. Both sides need to stop with this name calling nastiness and sweeping statements like Seek above lumping all Leave voters into one homogenous mass than accusing them of being one homogenous mass is so ironic it's laughable.

voyage

I will put money on them not having the balls if it goes tits up

In their defence i think it will kill some remainers to say everything is ok

I voted Leave. My reason for doing so was to leave the EU. Simple.
I want to reduce immigration.
If we leave the single market ; fine.
If prices go up; fine.
As long as we leave. Quickly.

niceguy2 Fri 16-Dec-16 19:44:15

Is that at any cost Tryingtosave?

Because right now many things have gone up due to the pound's fall. I know much of the equipment and services my business needs have gone up 20%. Obviously lots of other companies like Tesco et al will need to do the same next year.

The irony is that this will hurt those who can least afford it the most. We are lucky enough to have a decent income so we can easily tighten our belts a little bit and it's really the difference between a couple of takeaways a month. No biggie.

But those on the lowest income are the ones who will suffer the most.

I just don't get the vehement dislike of immigration when all objective evidence is that it's a net benefit to our society.

Ironically it seems those areas with the highest concentration of immigration like London are happy with it. It's the predominantly white areas which seems to be up in arms about it the most.

The Brexit train hasn't left the station. It's stuck at the platform with a broken engine and the driver's blaming the passengers.

Castelnaumansions Fri 16-Dec-16 20:25:37

And tickets cost £50bn.

InfiniteSheldon Fri 16-Dec-16 20:36:08

Worth every penny. That bit of extortion sums up everything wrong with the EU.

SallyInSweden Fri 16-Dec-16 20:49:05

*I voted Leave. My reason for doing so was to leave the EU. Simple.

And yet the majority or immigration is non-EU and already in the government's remit.

no matter how quickly you leave, I guarantee you will live to regret it. Painfully. For years and decades. But of course you'll blame the politicians, the EU, and anyone else except taking responsibility for your vote. You

It's not extortion. It's paying what we owe.
