Slow down tiger Practice your speech in front of your mirror. We only need to hear it here in the (unlikely) event that you win.

Re: Place your bets...

And against the deal? Remember, not everybody will necessarily vote. In a tiebreaker details like this will be crucial. Forum Champ for the Day cannot be taken lightly... :lol: :shock: Ok, 322 for deal and 315 against, obviously not including Sinn Fein etc who don't vote. If I win, I'd like a crown...

Re: Place your bets...

My guess is 322 in favour of deal.

Re: The Worm has turned

I see they have blocked a part of Oxford Street now. Whilst I applaud people becoming more environmentally aware, the way in which this group has gone about things is so completely wrong. I'm glad that man was dragged from the roof of the tube and I hope he learnt his lesson at the hands of everyday...

Re: EU and UK agree deal.

In the illegal event of a no-deal, I would think the country would massively support remain MPs. Question Time last night was very interesting. If the speakers’ analysis was true, this deal is much worse than May’s deal, as no protection of rights is included. Labour and the SNP and Libdems will op...

Re: EU and UK agree deal.

After a very quick scan, it looks to me like most of the deal is about the change from the backstop to the new arrangement. Everything else in May’s deal seems to be the same. I.e. we will follow EU law on most product, goods and services. Still in common fisheries. Thank you for the link. From wha...

Re: EU and UK agree deal.

Reading the latest reports all the opposition parties are saying they will vote against it, unsurprisingly. I can't comment on what has been agreed because I haven't seen it, can those who have please post a link?

Re: Not what we wanted to hear: it's looking like a No Deal :(

Where did I say "each and every voter" knew about the single market? I didn't. Well, my point was that the referendum was only about leaving the EU (not the single market nor the custums union) and therefore, there is no justification for claiming that the referendum should be regarded a vote to le...

Re: Not what we wanted to hear: it's looking like a No Deal :(

Nope, yet again you are wrong, so much so it's becoming slightly embarrassing. I said, many posts ago, and in response to your constant lie, that British voters were actually told that a vote to leave was also a vote to leave the single market. I'm sorry you fail, repeatedly to grasp that very, ver...

However do please back up your assertion that I said each and every voter knew about it already. Please, post where I said that. As per your wish: . The British people voted, they weighed up the pros and cons I am sure, and satisfied themselves, that is, each and every person who voted. Oh dear, th...

Jimgym, you take the biscuit in having a go at people for not accepting your ONE example of voters being told about leaving by ~Cameron ~V Hundreds of examples where everyone said about no-deal being off the agenda and having trade deals with the EU being certain. But you’ve refused to even read. Y...

No, sadly you didn’t understand me correctly. Despite the fact I kept it very simple, you still didn’t manage to grasp it. Nice try though, and keep twisting what people say to suit your own viewpoint. However do please back up your assertion that I said each and every voter knew about it already. ...

Really not? Really not Jeba, and as you obviously have time on your hands, for clarification I suggest you re-read what I have written on this thread. It's all been kept very simple by me, and it is all completely unambiguous in what it says. Should you wish to twist this to suit your argument then...

Re: Not what we wanted to hear: it's looking like a No Deal :(

Are you saying that there was a mention of customs union or common market on the ballot paper? If it wasn´t it wasn´t me who repeated a lie. No, I'm not saying it now, I didn't say it yesterday, and I have never said, or even hinted at it before. I do hope that clarifies it for you. Really not? we ...

Re: Not what we wanted to hear: it's looking like a No Deal :(

Indeed, saying the same thing over and over won´t make it correct. So I suggest you stop doing it. There was no referendum on leaving the customs union and / or the common market. No matter how often you´re making up that claim. Again you repeat a lie, and it does you no service. I offered you the ...

Well, the referendum result you re-posted clearly shows how slim the margin was and that 2% of voters ...... we´re going in circles here because you´re failing to acknowledge is that there was no vote on leaving the common market nor the customs union. Plus there is an argument to be made that the ...

Re: Not what we wanted to hear: it's looking like a No Deal :(

So we agree that 2 % of voters who feel that they voted leave based on wrong assumptions about the implications would have sufficed to change the outcome and that therefore there is no legitimacy in claiming that the UK should not only leave the EU but the customs union and the common market as wel...

Alan Nothing has changed even after all the typing we've all done over the weekend on this subject and Brexit is still at an impasse.
