  3. Bitter stars line up to tweet abuse at 'ill-informed' public

    A load of luvvies are upset. Because the 'plebs' didn't do as they were told but the luvvies did.

    They understand you see. High IQs are a sign of a luvvy.

    Hopefully they'll all p*ss off.

    On an alternate note, why all the doom and gloom? The game is a foot. Hardly Dunkirk spirit at the moment is it?

  4. Italian stock market is down 12% and 5 star are asking for a referendum on the euro, which they may well get and win. Five star are on the ascendancy.

    M5S wants referendum on euro in Italy - English

    Milan bourse plunges -12% after Brexit - English

    Oh and I did read some blog from an Italian "high" up in government proposing a deal where British firms can relocate to Italy to access the EU market. Italy as an incentive would reduce red tape, taxes and labour costs to easy the transition for 3 years. This would be the same Italy that is losing its brightest and best companies and young people due to EU issues and Italy being a disaster to do business in.

    Minimum pricing for alcohol (well in Scotland), was being held up by appeals to EU courts over free trade type arguments.
    It can now go ahead.

  6. The economic and geopolitical powerhouse of Latvia might find itself being told to do one then. Also is it really in the Latvian people's interest to start a political row with one of its main allies while Russia's still playing silly buggers?

    It's very similar to Farage's 350 million "was a mistake"

    Who would have thought politicians would have lied (either deliberately or by omission) during a campaign.

  9. To be honest, even Farage never said immigration would stop and didn't want it to stop. Merely controlled.

    What's worrying me is the amount of people trying to over look s democratic process.

  10. There were lies and statistics on both sides of the campaign. Now we have made the decision we had better start making it work. One thing that made me laugh was when Farrage said a few days ago that the money saved on being in the EU could build a hospital a week.
    Firstly, the sums quoted were untrue, secondly not all the rebate money will go into the NHS and thirdly who will build, maintain and staff all these hospitals if we don't allow the eastern Europeans in!?
    Cameron was right on one thing yesterday. We need to steady the ship and take stock. Hysteria and yet more lies will not help. We do indeed live in interesting times.

    Farage's mistake was over the money, not numbers of immigrants.
    Nigel Farage says pledge of £350 million a week for NHS was a mistake
    Nigel Farage: £350 million pledge to fund the NHS was 'a mistake'
    Farage says £350 million NHS pledge was a 'mistake'
    Watch: Brexit lies unravel as Nigel Farage calls £350m a week promise to NHS "a mistake"

    Yep, Jeremy Cliffe, writer for the Economist made a very prescient tweet before the referendum, which I can't find right now, which went alongvthe lines of that when the public realise that the public realise the leaders of Leave won't deliver on their claims the sense of betrayal and anger from their supporters will make the expenses scandal look like a picnic.

    What's is quickly emerging is that Leave are desperate to establish an EEA relationship with Europe, so still paying in, though now with no rebate; still following European laws and regulations, though now with no ability to shap or frame them before they come into force; still subject to free movement of people.

    Brilliant so much for taking back control. Leavers have successfully emasculated us in Europe, diminished our standing in the eyes of the world, increased the financial cost of European trade, fecked the pound and stock market, hindered future economic growth by several percentage points and made the break up of the UK one step closer.

    All for a fig leaf of flag and sovereignty.
