what exactly was wrong with the referendum 2016

Postby Lordo » Sat Sep 14, 2019 6:47 pm

was it the fact that remainers lost and anybody opposing it? does that make them undemocratic.

to really understand the referendum conandrum you have to be able to work out some of these facts.

result was leave the eu instead of remain.

but lets go to the begining.

1 - what exactly was the real reason for the referendum? answere this and you begin to unravel the real situation.
2 - what happened during the campaign? was everything promissed by both sides actually possible? answere this and you will be nearer to understand the situation
3. what did the result mean? this will crack it wide open.

shall we start from the begining? so who is going to tell us the real reason for the referendum?

it is best comeing from a brexiter as we can see how far off the mark they are.

Deja, whatever, is hearing the same thing over and over. That, despite the fact however much you are engaged with you will never be happy.

Would this thing were over - either way. The trouble is it never will be of course. :(

hang on a minute my friend you accused me of being un-democratic and i assume becasue i am lhallenging the legitemacy of the referendum. and you can't even help me to understand the real reason for the referendum. you are a bad sportsman.
play the white man, explain to me the reason for the referendum. thats all i am asking. you see when you ventrue out on a project, before you start you have to expalin the reason for the project. very important because if the reason is invalid the project normally stops unless you have a meglomaniac who will do the project do or die. who would want to die in doing a project?

Play nice and tell me the reason. unless of course you don't understand in which case let your superiour bucketman expalin. now he knows everything. and here i am wishing to learn

I don't have to explain anything. And you are certainly not "wishing to learn". :wink:

i beg to differ on both counts. i learn everyday becasue i am afirm believer that you never stop learning no matter how old. not to know is not a crime but not to know and not to ask is. that was a sentence i learnd from my teacher in 1968 and never forgot it.

unless you converted to being a christian or even perhaps you are christian and once one cheek is slapped you turn the other cheek?

it may have been respected by the inhabitants of planet uranus, however that does not expalin the reason.

what exactly was the real reason for the referendum?

surely you must know of all pibol.
we are clearly at an impass and in fact we have more chance of cancelling brexit than actually implementing it and worse still we may even be able to implement a corbyn brexit.

we go back to the same question till you answer it.

...in my mind it was a bit of bravado. It was not meant to have significance, at the time few would imagine it could be won.

Had the result been the reverse, i imagine there would have been even greater unity among Brits, and the mandate for Britain to take a greater role in leading EU politics would have been demonstrated.

...yet, what seems obvious, from the perspective of those who appreciate the balance of power, is challenged.
