May has deceived the public from the day she entered No 10, making countless speeches saying everything Leavers wanted to hear but then in private doing exactly the opposite.  She has now delayed the "meangful" vote till the end of February in the hope her Remain-deal will get through parliament in a last minute panic to fend off a no-deal exit.  I sincerely hope her ploy fails and we do leave on March 29th without a deal, just as I intended when I placed my X in the Leave box nearly three years ago.

EU referendum

"Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?"

The result was

"Leave the European Union"

The government has promised to implement the result.

 

All we need to do is leave the EU and job done. 

So what's the problem Mrs May / Westminster?

Most members of the House of Commons are believed to have voted Remain in the EU referendum.

According to a survey of all 650 MPs carried out by the Press Association ahead of the referendum on June 23:

:: 480 MPs said they would be voting Remain, including 184 Conservatives

:: 159 MPs said they would be voting Leave, including 139 Conservatives

:: 11 MPs were undeclared, including four Conservatives

This gives Remain a notional Commons majority of at least 310.

Some 218 Labour MPs said they would vote Remain while just 11 backed Leave.

All eight Liberal Democrat MPs intended to vote Remain, along with all 56 SNP MPs, all three Plaid Cymru MPs, all four Sinn Fein MPs and all three SDLP MPs.

Green MP Caroline Lucas also said she would vote Remain, as did independent MP Sylvia Hermon and the two Ulster Unionist MPs.

The eight DUP MPs said they would be voting to Leave, along with Ukip MP Douglas Carswell.

And this is the problem MP's who voted remain are not interested in the result of the referendum and have no intention of voting for anything but to remain a member of the EU.

Brexit is a disaster that was illegally promoted by a few self-serving dicks who managed to convince a tiny majority that it was a good idea. Anyone who still shouts project fear is in denial and are selling our childrens future down the river. Be ashamed, be very ashamed!!

1970's project fear - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHIidBgwyTA

Nothing changes, same old scare stories then as now.

Planes can't land, 6 months to get through Dover, we'll have no food, etc. No one can really believe this rubbish surely?

 

'Inside Europe 10 Years of Turmoil', an interesting documentary series recently broadcast on the Remainiac Broadcasting Corp (formally known as the BBC) 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0c1rjkc/inside-europe-ten-years-of-turmoil-series-1-1-we-quit

Watch this and you'll see why we have got to get out asap.

@scapegoat

1.4 million votes is not a tiny majority.  If Remain had won by the same amount you wouldn't be complaining, Leavers would have had to accept the result.  I suggest you do the same.

I suggest you accept that it was always a fantasy created by Tories to try to hold their party together. This shitstorm can only harm the future of the youths of our country and cause hardship to poor and middle earners. This collective self harm is mindboggling and the only answer from leavers are accept a 4% (yes tiny) majority voted for it so shut up and shouts of project fear. Well, project fear has slowly been becoming reality the closer we get to TM's shafting or worse still, no deal.

If only we had real leaders ... the Government have made a complete mess of it as they didn't have any plan and just thought the EU would say yes to everything "because we are so important" but turns out that isn't the case. At least we'll have blue passports (made in the EU)!

Leatash,seriously? The large percentage of Brexshitters are elitists that have made sure that brexshit increases their wealth. Do you really think it's a coincedence that when the EU start cracking down on Tax avoidence schemes all the richest back brexshit. But you proved me right, all you leavers do is bury your heads in the sand and shout "Fake News"

Hmm, that reminds me of an orange, small hands buffoon cheeky

Sigh...ok. Would one of you Brexiters (notice I'm not using childish name calling like Remoaners, please accept my apology for previous posts triggering me enough to respond with Brexshitters) please explain to me what you expect to gain from leaving the EU?  Why do you feel it's going to make the UK better?

Scapegoat doesn't believe in the great ingenuity of the people on this island. I said for better or worse, and I don't believe things can get a lot worse. So the only way forward is up up and away, bring it on and lets stop all this guessing.

I  cannot understand why the the ERG are regarded the rebels in this Brexit  negotiation. When in all truth it is the 400 M.P's 

who lied to get to voted into office and then rolled over, to remain in the E.U.against the will of the people

We have never accepted  rule from another country and I cannot see it starting now.The present M.P.s whatever party

Conservative or Labour should remember the electorate will not forgive or forget thier role in all this.fiasco

Still think my assumption to leave the E.U. which was 32 to the power of 32 was correct.

As far as the monies we are supposed to owe the E.U . it would be fair to argue we owe nothing, due to repaying

America under the lease lend agreement during WWII ( we only paid the last installment in the last 8 years or so)

To free these ungrateful greedy bastards.LEAVE MEANS LEAVE.

Scapegoat, I expecpt to gain from leaving the EU more than it seems you can imagine. There will be changes, of course there will, but lets not forget how much we have paid to the EU since joining, we will not have to do that any more and do you really believe that those that are still in are going to bite off their nose to spite their face. Those that are still in cannot afford to lose us, but when we go just wait and see what they do. All this talk about goods being held up is bullshit, they will be banging on the door begging to let them in. Just wait and see,

The UK pays in about £10B a year, we get some back but we're told what to do with it.

Would be better to keep our own money and decide what to do with it ourselves.

For the UK there is no net benefit to being in the EU.

I really don't see why we can't have our own money and run our own country.
