Hi,
mercalia wrote:a question. What do We, the people do if they cant agree a deal, wont accept leaving without deal and refuse to cancel article 50? As this look like a likely scenario? Had the default been revoking article 50 then there would be no problem?

You're a little late, I already predicted that we Leave with no Deal now.
Can you see both sides and the EU agreeing on anything any more now than they did when we started.

Agreeing with the EU has not been problematic in the slightest. Once May managed to get agreement in cabinet it took just a few weeks to sort out the agreement with the EU.

Our inability to agree amongst ourselves is the problem.

More specifically, the inability of leave voters and campaigners to agree amongst themselves.

Are we getting close to settling the questions on the next referendum paper?

Do you want to leave the EU with no deal?
or
Do you want to stay in the EU?

The experts have been exactly correct so far on Brexit.

Their prediction for "no deal" is an economic slump followed by an interminable acrimonious piecemeal negotiation in which the EU holds all the cards.

This is what people are unwittingly voting for, and the charlatans telling them it will be simple know it.

It's amazing what some people refuse to see before their eyes :?

It's tiresome and frustrating that we are going round in circles and haven't left.

Blame parliament.

The experts told you it would be difficult, long, complicated and wouldn't bring the benefits promised.

You voted to leave regardless.

It's turned out exactly as the experts predicted.

It's your responsibility. Own it.

Mine?
Personally? :lol: :lol:

It was a referendum, and as many people voted who wanted to vote.
The turn-out of all you Remainers (who it seems are the majority?) was rather pitiful perhaps?
Maybe they didn't care enough and they let the Leavers win.

No wonder the Remainers want another go at it.

Too late mate. You blew it.

The average remainer mindset appears to want to keep the vassalage of the UK to the defeated nations from acoss the whale road. Politicians aside do you really have so little confidence and respect in ourselves to decide who we are anymore?

Personally, I actually don't really care if we're in or out.
My preference has always been that we should be out - and never joined in the first place either.

Note - preference - I'm not zealous or right-wing, or politically angry about anything.
I was asked - no, we were ALL asked - what we wanted, and I chose OUT along with the majority of the voters.

My frustration is that we were told that parliament would be bound by the referendum result, and it's done nothing except go round in circles with ministers and prime ministers resigning.

Just shut up and get on with it.
