I'll be sure to tune into LBC and listen to that lefty w@nker James O' Brian explode live on air.
Either way, he did. It follows there there was a political motive for doing so, but that was fine by me as I didn’t have to be persuaded for the need for a referendum.And He’d promised one in the election. I disagree about article 50 in that it was implicit either way such was the mess parliament had got us into. I’m afraid that if you watch JRM at the Oxford Union on the matter, it remains my favourite clip on the issue For calm clear logic.He only did so because of the increase of voters to UKIP. Iirc both main parties had been promising us a referendum, when they were in opposition. As soon as they came into office, zilch. Like or loath Nigel, you've got to admire his focus on getting us out, (when it happens,) of the EU. cameron on the other hand is a waste of space, in my opinion. If he'd triggered article 50 shortly after the result was confirmed, we wouldn't have gone through the pantomime of the last four years. I still don't trust any of them, and that's why I refer to us leaving as "when it happens." Some politicians were saying extend the leave date, again, because of coronavirus. If that had been agreed, it would have given them, remainers, the excuse to extend it as long as the pandemic lasted, 5/6/10 years, giving them more time to come up with some other excuse to delay Brexit. There's still people who know better than us, and will still be trying to overturn the democratic process. They are the biggest danger to all our futures should they succeed.
not really when he thought he would win large as his polling said 70% for the EU because they only polled the westminster bubble and put it to bed for as long as it took to lock us in totally. he might have won it too if he hadn't started project fear off in all its lunacy.ISTR he triggerered the referendum, so fair play
Actually it's less than two hours; 2300 hrs is the deadline; not midnight.
Not really- it was one of those politicians’ “wheezes” cooked up with George Osborne. He was more worried by UKIP than he needed to be and promised a referendum conditionally in order to take the wind out of their sails.ISTR he triggerered the referendum, so fair play
The Government have little time left in which to either rescind or amend the law as it stands to allow it to agree to an extension now...Actually it's less than two hours; 2300 hrs is the deadline; not midnight.
BL would be right; the EU could change their own rules and the UK could agree to the change and an extension still could happen.
But I would think this would be difficult.
