Immigrate? But you haven't even seen the 'Make Britain Great Again' manifesto the govt would run on, hand written of course by the hard right tory backbenchers and rural pensioners who make up the membership of the party:

Corbyn's history is in Unions and journalism and May's got a 2nd in business. I don't think it's hard to see why I'd put Cable over both of them.
Hey at least we're getting our blue passports back! Very important matter you know!


Also I thought May was a Geography student at Oxford?

Oh was it Geography? I misread and thought it said she had a business degree. I think that makes it worse no? A 2nd in Geography? I'll take a phd in economics over that any and every day of the week.

Re: Brexit continues to be a colossal fuck up.

We all knew this was gonna happen really, people who voted leave had no bloody idea what they were even voting for which makes them even more stupid. You know it was a daft idea when the main backers of brexit were the likes of Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson who didn't even have a clue themselves what a mess it would leave us in and they are so called politicians

Re: Brexit continues to be a colossal fuck up.

An awful lot of casual snobbery in this thread.

I've written some long posts on this topic in the past and so frankly can't be bothered to do it all again here, but if people are seriously positing that there were no valid reasons to vote for Brexit then they are just as uninformed and uneducated as they accuse Leave voters of being.

Basically we will likely never know whether Brexit would have been a success due to the actions of the political class, who have ensured that it has been a complete shit show from the start with their determination to derail it at every possible juncture. This is something we all should be able to come together on, not continue to squabble and bicker about like children. They're fucking Remainers over along with the Leavers - we're all citizens of this country after all.

Yeah, second class Geography degree, graduated in 1977. Doesn't strike me as a Geography graduate tbh. I thought she would care alot about the environment, not that May is one of those crazy climate change deniers but she did scrap the Dept. for Energy and Climate Change when she got into office and the plastic straw ban thing I'm sure was something Gove pushed for.

In other Brexit news:

Would be nice if London and Northern Ireland were included since they voted remain in big numbers, Edinburgh and Glasgow are also the only other UK cities that make the top 50 of the Global Financial Centres Index (with London at no.1), Scotland being the only single market member of the UK could give those cities and the country a really big boost, Edinburgh is also quite regularly voted the UK's no.1 city to live in too, lots of opportunity for the city if such a thing were to happen.

Obviously one would imagine the UK govt wouldn't tolerate such an unpatriotic policy with Dacre and Farage on his LBC show having mass heart attacks, but then again if the EU were keen on having a part of the UK in the single market I guess May and Davis would back down as they always do

Re: Brexit continues to be a colossal fuck up.

The reasons for voting Brexit we're always outweighed by the sheer gamble that you were voting for. Remain voters voted for the status quo and the security of the continued sustained growth seen in the EU, Leave voters voted to get are country back. Well, we got it back, and its a bit shit.

In your opinion, what were the economic reasons that voting leave made sense?

You see it with the massive political age divide within the UK, You see it with Disabled People pretty much getting the blame for a global recession instead of the banks and middle classes, The Scots, Little Englanders,Londoners and second generation Immigrants who supports Brexit.

It's like you've completely forgotten about the bananas thing already.

And, as someone else pointed out earlier, we're getting BLUE PASSPORTS!!! No way we could have those without leaving. Oh, we could?? Ah well
