I wouldn't be so sure remain would win a referendum.A lot of Brits and that includes Asian and Irish immigrants are pro Brexit and white anglos are so self obsessed that they believe that the sun still doesn't set on the Empire and that free trade agreements will all be one way traffic.

No white anglo under 80 years of age can remember the Empire. The notion that the ordinary mass of Brit citizens ever cared for Empire is kinda funny too.
Did not say they remembered it but it culturally ingrained in them, and also a lot of the higher class Indians whose families were part of the ruling class in the Raj. People of my generation do not remember the famine, but culturally it is still ingrained in our attitudes to food, food waste etc...

Conservatives as led by May and Labour as led by Corbyn were both elected on manifestos promising to ‘deliver Brexit’, therefore, all else being equal and with the land as it stands (and presuming it will continue to stand), the UK wants to leave the EU.

Most of the voters are that stupid and set in their ways that if both parties campaigned on nuking the country, they'd probably still get elected 1st and 2nd (in no particular order).

How many utter retards would say: "I voted XXXX because my da voted XXXX and his da before him voted XXXX"

Dominic Raab wants to prorogue Parliament to force a no-deal Brexit through. So much for "taking back control" and restoring power to national parliaments. If this isn't a right-wing power grab I don't know what is.

There is a great tv drama on at the minute Year’s and Years, set five years from now, the policy by one political is that voters must pass an exam to vote! Seems fair
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Voters have never been smarter.  Note the beginning of Alliance’s representation of most people in the 6 counties and the nuanced transfers in the free state.   First past the post plays into the ‘Fear Factor’ hand whereby Con & Lab dominate in GB and SF & DUP in NI (Westminster obviously).   Steve Baker continuously refers to Raab as Dom which is seems to be a dumbing down desensitising tactic.   But I’m possibly overanalysing..

Yesterday's By-election result in Peterborough shows why the Tories are shitting it and determined to push Brexit through no matter what. Labour drop 17 percentage pts in share of the vote yet win the seat because the Brexit party hamstrung the Tories.

Does it also show to an extent that while the people will vote Brexit party in local or euro elections when it comes to electing an MP for a party with one policy they aren't just there yet. Maybe Brexit party has hit their high water mark. Farage is a total fraud.

Apparently he was at the count for yesterday's election and when it became clear that there was not going to be a winner he sneaked off into the toilets and wouldn't be seen to back his candidate!!!  Clear protest party with no real policies.  Will be found out in a GE.  British politics is rightly fucked at the minute

No evidence can ever prove or disprove a generalisation like that. Even when the empire was at its height 150 years ago, your average British citizen was too busy working a 70-hour week and/or dying by the age of 40 to give a toss about empire.   Unlike the Irish famine, the empire had little or no effect on ordinary people's lives except as an origin or destination for goods produced in the factories in which they worked.

Farage will have to be sidelined for the Tories to count in a GE in the current atmosphere. He'll become  Lord Fuckface of somewhere with a huge bribe and slither off somewhere into the shadows rather than let Corbyn in.
