    After we leave the EU - would another referendum in Scotland gain an independence decision - separating from the rest of the UK ???

    Would there be a decision in Wales for separation from the rest of the UK??

    Of course not - it just suits the Remain narrative to throw stuff out there like that.
  2. Because it is a ‘Tory thing’. The referendum was called because it is a Tory thing. Cameron wanted to put Mogg, Cash, Gove and rest into the box once and for all. He misunderstood the country’s desire to vote for all things anti-government, which is somewhat surprising as this has always been the case!

    That is just selective for reasons I assume of trying to cement further this confusion because it suits the Remainer narrative.

    Let me ask a genuine question:

    If the situation had been that it was the Labour party that had stated in 2015 that it would put the question to the country and was duly elected - because it attracted votes from pro-Leave citizens from across the political spectrum - would you be now so vociferous about it being a 'Labour thing' and stridently urging everyone to vote for the Tories?

    The government are asking us to focus on the positives of leaving the EU, so can we compile a list.
    for me the European parliament was an expensive nonsense with no power. So no MEP's is a positive.
  5. I can’t answer that, because it wasn’t.

    No longer will British politicians have the ability to blame their own failings on the eu.
    Negotiating our own trade deals.

    Ha - Ok, but that does seem to just confirm that the strength of your view - IMO - is down simply to the convenience of being able to use what has happened to post 'anti-Tory' stuff.

    It just, IMO, devalues the point that you and others make in seeking to, despite the millions of Labour voters that voted Leave, set this as a Tory thing purely for reasons of political bias.

    For me, if this was not the case, you would have been able to give a resounding statement that you would be decrying the Labour party equally as much.

    British politicians will always retain the ability to blame their failings on the EU. Anything that goes wrong will be blamed on the intransigence, treachery and hostility of our European neighbours and EU loving Remainers in the Civil Service, judiciary, liberal media and population at large. We will be an ever present shadowy presence available for weddings, bar mitzvahs and ritualistic floggings in the Mail and nightly slots on the telly with Bojo and Rees Mogg ranting for 5 minutes about ‘betrayal and the enemy amongst us’. It’ll be a hoot.

    Also there were still be enough immigrants left to bash so major bonus for isolationists there as well.
