    Hi All

    Don’t know if anyone is interested, but as there seems to be a lot of disquiet with the idea of Brexit/Article 50, there are marches planned for this Saturday to try and get the views of the other 48% and those excluded from voting noticed by the Government.

    https://www.uniteforeurope.co.uk/

    It’d be good if anyone could do London/Edinburgh/wherever else there are marches if they care about the outcome.

    Willrab – do you believe that “brexit can be stopped” and that the wishes of the 48% should outweigh the wishes of the 52% ?

    The 48 can vote for a party committed to the UK rejoining the EU

    I’m afraid I’ve adopted the Mastermind “we’ve started so we’ll finish” attitude to Brexit. Let’s just get it done with. Having voted remain, personally i think it will do this country more harm than good to try and backtrack on that once in a generation referendum result.

    Ironically, Brexit may well force the EU to change into something more people would have voted to remain.

    Precisely – it will eventually get leaner / more pragmatic, but we won’t reap the benefits. But I am sure trading with NZ will help offset the loss.

    Yay a march to solve all! πŸ˜•

    Will there be achingly witty placards?

    The fight now isn’t to undo brexit, it’s happening next Wednesday, Leave lied about pretty much everything, but the sad thing is a lot of people just don’t care.

    The fight now is to remind May that she promised a deal for both sides of the argument, not just the UKIPers she’s so worried about for 2020.

    With a 16% lead in the polls that must be it.

    I would like to think that it would reform itself, but there are powerful voices saying otherwise, like Junker admitting that fear will be used to keep other countries in the bloc.

    I believe that the voices of those 48% (and almost certainly rising) should be heard rather than “shut up, we won, you lost, get over it, two world wars and one world cup doo dah.”

    Do you believe that half of the country should just be completely ignored, that they should be oppressed and bullied into silence? That’s no democracy I recognise.

    no the 100% lost. its just the 48% were right.

    Zaneland I have never been beaten in my life – the remain resistance and the EU popular front will fight on…… and shit on Brexiteers at all opportunities.

    I don’t believe that May should be given free reign to do as she pleases with Brexit, especially given the information coming out of David Davis’ mouth at the Commons Select Committee last week.

    If May’s arguments against a Scottish Indy Ref 2 are to be believed she’s either missed the idea of irony or is a massive hypocrite.

    Without some kind of either parliamentary scrutiny or a referendum on the outcome of negotiations we’ll be the only country in the EU without any kind of ratification or scrutiny of the deal, hardly taking back control.

    With so many people currently in limbo due to this I think the Tory party’s game is ruining many peoples lives and should have some kind of scrutiny.

    the remain resistance and the EU popular front

    How’s things, Wolfie?

    Sometimes it is good to admit defeat than trying to hang on to the losing grounds to cause more troubles. πŸ˜†

    This isn’t a football match.

    We want May to listen to us when coming up with a new deal. Is that such a hard concept to understand?

    What do you have to say or to offer deal wise? 😯

    What do you have to say or offer deal wise?

    Or you know, maybe Parliament have a say? You know, because they want Parliamentary Sovereignty?

    If they’re so confident they’ll get a good deal why are they so scared of having scrutiny?

    The referendum didn’t say what kind of exit we’d get, surely parliament having a view would be good for democracy?

    It’s hard to argue against such a well formed argument, but I’ll have a go.

    Democracy, the word that the Leavers hold so sacrosanct, is the representation of the population, not just the ones you agree with. If the vote had gone the other way by the same narrow margin, I’d be all for parliamentary change to address the reasons why many people voted Leave.

    Oh I don’t know why I bother, it’s like playing chess with a pigeon.

    48% is not half, 50% is half, anything above 50% is a majority.

    Anyway. The reason this thread wasn’t closed as a duplicate is that it was to discuss the march, rather than retread the same ground as the huge one. You want to argue leave vs remain, or want to be a patronising bell-end, go do it there. I’ll be aggressively deleting off-topic conversation from here on in.
