Or should I call you Brutus?

That was his choice I am afraid and if he had won he would be crowing from the rooftops as ALL remain voters would be now. Surely both Cameron and the remain voters are sore losers after a democratic vote.

 


Supported Palace for over 69 years since the age of 7 and have seen all the ups and downs and will probably see many more ups and downs before I go up to the big football club in the sky.

The vote was very close so its a split nation. Now that we're going out we'll have to see how it goes as the democratic process has played out. Its very uncertain times so i hope that it works out for all. Namely that we get controls on immigration but the economy isnt hit terribly in the long run. im unsure that either of those will end of reflecting what the public want.

It's a strange democracy where 27 million eligible voters didn't vote for Brexit by either not turning up or voting for 'Remain' but 17 million did.

Also, it could have literally been won by 1 vote out of 34 million cast which is plainly insane.


Referendums are flawed as now 48% of Brits are on the losing side.

But, of course, I would be saying this

Yes you are, so I am afraid that you have to live with it ..... Deal all done and dusted...We are coming out of the EU and about time too.

Michael, the In voters have been bad losers. Incredibly condescending and bitter.

Your (the remain group) message wasn't convincing and you don't understand people's concerns.


I am not quite sure how though making those poorer people who voted Brexit poorer via the agreed economic tough times ahead is addressing their concerns by action as well as understanding them.

It's all very well having affected empathy but what are your side going to do about it? You can't Just sit back do nothing yet thank those millions for their 'X's.

The UK pop. is still projected to be over 70mill by 2030 EU or no EU. Some very important issues at home that need sorting like housing had very little to do with Brussels looking at the bigger picture.

Still, it is good that the disenfranchised and the ignored feel like they have won something and been listened to for a change even if for a fleeting moment and built on sand.

The latter is true. Not sure about the former. The concept of 'bad losers' seems to imply this was a competition. I have been struck throughout by how lightly such a momentous decision has been taken. It wasn't a competition, it wasn't a good laugh, it wasn't the right forum for a protest vote. It will set the scene for more than one future generation. It will deeply impact their lives in a more significant way than almost anything else. Sore losers isn't how I view this, deeply worried is closer to the mark.

This is my personal message to Hoof and people like you.

You have f*cked me. My pension will never recover

Your have f*cked my children, the economy will never recover. Dublin will be happy tonight and watch what Edinburgh does. You killed the only goose we had laying decent sized eggs.

You did this for your own gain knowing it would adversely affect a huge proportion of people, especially Londoners like the HOLers. And then you boasted about your gains.

You used the disenfranchised to get your own way, even though it won't benefit them and will in the end adversely affect them.

The infirm will be in particular jeopardy, funding for the NHS will fall quickly. It's a good job you made money on the exit so you can buy your private health care.

Everything will grind to a halt for years to come, you can forget big infrastructure investments.

This was not a risk it was fair for you to take on behalf of others

For all of these reasons I despise you.

Maybe, when you look back on what you did, you will come to despise yourself too.

You need to get out more mate.

Over 17 Million people agreed with me.

Stop wetting your pants indoors with your tinhat on and get out into the big wide world and make your fortune using your wits and courage like I did.

Just man up.

Don't tell lies Gusset.

My recollection wasn't that I laughed, I said I had no sympathy for their losses.

I'm guessing you haven't got a copy of my post?

I have a better, more accurate memory than you.

The story relates to a client who used me for financial advice - hours and hours of work, then chose to invest with Equitable Life (non commission paying) and wouldn't give me a fee.

When Equitable Life went tits up, he asked me what to do as he needed help. I told him I was sorry but had wasted enough time trying to help him beforehand and he shafted me.

DON'T MAKE UP LIES ABOUT PEOPLE FOR CHEAP POINT SCORING.

Michael, I have said it before and I say it again. A deal will be carved up by the powers that be over the course of the next 12 months and we will be in some shape or form in the EU or EEA. They are not going to allow contagion to happen.

With regards to your point, it's slightly disingenuous. I didn't see anything that resembled a vision from the Remain camp on how Britain would be better. I didn't see a vision on how the 'housing crisis' would be resolved or take home pay increased.

I view what I did as a protest vote against the establishment. It is against failed politicians like Cameron and Corbyn & a failed elitist project which is the EU. I vote against the EU because it is serving no ones best interests at the moment. It's not functioning well, it's a hotch potch of vested interests.

What are 'my side' doing with 'the empathy'? What a ridiculous question. The referendum is over. It is now up to the powers that be to determine the future vision for this country and the grassroots to either approve or disapprove it.

Maple - I have seen some ridiculous comments from Remain voters following the result. One on FB today said that the 'educated' voted Remain, the 'uneducated' voted out and that in future we should only give votes on important matters to 'educated' people.

Imagine if a Kipper had said that? It is almost Rhosdesian to the core.

I think everyone needs to go and have a few pints, share a bottle of Sancerre or enjoy a few single malts (whatever your poison), reflect and then get on with life on Monday.

Nothing is going to change. A compromise deal with the EU will happen.

No need to shout.
If you don't like lies, how do you feel about the 350 million promised for the NHS on the side of buses.
If you don't like lies, what do you make of the moment on newsnight last night when the UKIP mep admitted there would be free movement of Labour across the eu which was not what was said in the campaign? [Link]

That's fair enough but he said he found it funny that a young couple had lost money.

As I have already explained, that is not the situation at all.

No one delights in seeing anyone lose money.

The poster you responded to was extremely accurate in his appraisal of what I did..

You are s*** stirring.... as you term it quite accurately "Playing The Man".

You are such a hypocrite and a liar Gusset.

Matt's descriptions of you are so accurate, God help those children you have been teaching... I dread to think what they have learned from you.
