And yet they had the same chance to voice their opinion and make their feelings known but chose not to. If they can't be arsed to vote, their opinion counts for nothing, just the same as in a GE, say nothing, have no say.
You might think they sold a pack of lies, I wasn't, I've told you before my mind was made up years before. Now you can carry on with this crock of shit as your burden but I paid no mind to that. All I've seen is proponents to relatively badly constructed arguments fight hammer and tongs to prove that the status quo is good. We tried the remain and change, that failed and you may recall that had Parliament accepted the deal that Cameron tried, I would have accepted that. I've laid down my lines. No one has comprehensively proved to me that I know less about the customs procedures or even that the Customs issues matter that much.
It's not all about you, you're a single vote in a 52%, many of which now feel they were indeed misled by some of the claims made by the leave campaign.
So far no one has complained they were misled to their detriment by the remain campaign, which has to tell you something.
To quote Mark Twain
'It's easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled'
(It could be Scunthorpe FCs Mark Twain, it's not to be found on the other ones published stuff)
We might actually agree on something. Erdogan is steadily taking Turkey away from Atatürk's vision of a tolerant secular state. Erdogan is also playing the populist card for all its worth and storing up trouble for the future as he turns Turkey into ever more of a one party state. I can see Turkey turning into a theocracy with a fornicated economy. I can't see Turkey ever being admitted to the EU in those circumstances.
Which highlights one of the main reasons for leaving the EU - Commissioners running the show yet are not part of parliament. Not even drawn from MEPs.
Still we have had that discussion and as I have not seen a sensible reason from a leaver as to why that is good I don't see anything to change my view on this ridiculous setup. Sooner we are out of this incestuous organisation the better!
Really? The choice of president needed a majority of the heads of state to go to the approval of the MEPs. Only Cameron and the guy from Hungary voted against so it was 26-2 in favour. One of the first of Cameron's humiliations (of which many more came).
Stop making things up just to try and prove a point. To say "Merkel" chose him is stupidity beyond belief. The other 25 also chose him.
