    I was pro-remain and would vote remain again if we could turn back time but the leave vote won and that is what needs to happen. I would be against staying now after the vote even though it would be better to do so (imo of course).

    Ideally, what should have happened originally was a deal in principle should have been agreed with the EU and then we could have voted on that rather than voting blind and without the bullshit lies told by both sides

    In what could be billed as possibly the saddest way to spend a Sunday night I did dip into the German leaders debate for the up coming Federal elections as I was curious to see if German car maker concerns over Brexit or any other concerns for that matter would be raised. Given that Davis and others are still banging on about them forcing Merkel to the table and wringing concessions from her over our deal (or lack of it) it seemed a good way to gauge any pressures on our next German Overlord.

    Alas in 90 minutes of debate covering the burning issues of our day there was zilch on Brexit. Not a sausage. Or Bratwurst. In fairness my German aunt did think the UK had left last year and was most surprised to find that we were still hanging around the place and this misconception may be driving this lack of interest. Or like my aunt they just couldn't give a toss. Germans. Tough crowd.

    Fair enough mate. Not sure why you feel that pro-remainers would be more inclined to "vote", as you put it, than pro-leavers though. Presumably those with strong opinions either way would still be inclined to cast their opinion.

    No Ric, because pro-leavers have mostly called it a day.

    With the greatest respect, that's nonsense. It's trying to close down the debate. The notion that "the people have spoken" and "we need to move on" is ridiculous imo.

    You forgot "Was Remain and would still vote Remain given the chance but the people have spoken, so no matter how bad it gets, one must respect that vote even though Boris's bus and Nigel's nasty posters may have swung it".

    At least you voice the words "With the greatest respect" unlike many on the last thread who used words like "Thick" "Uneducated" "Ignorant" and "Nazi", if only others could follow that simple no insult rule mate.
