@acetech But equally the referendum was not legally binding whereas the election result is. If we also follow the thinking that people should just shut up and get on with Brexit then by equal measure newspapers like the express and Mail shouldn’t have been moaning about the EU for decades. Swings and roundabouts.
Re the deal we certainly agree on all but perhaps the last bit. I would suggest that any one wishing to remain under the terms of the deal needs their head examined because it leaves us with no say in anything the EU decides to do in terms of setting tariffs, making new laws etc. Rather than “no wonder” it should be “why on Earth...is beyond me”.
@k89bpa I think the likes of The Mail are frightful a loss for May could result in a general election and then possibly a government other than Conservative. That could be tricky for them if they were seen to have inadvertently brought about the governments demise.
@andyslc, or is it a 'teach them leavers a lesson' clause which they're hoping will show the light into remaining after all....
Oh, and I definitely agree regarding media bias, or even celebrity politics, essentially using any position to push an agenda and think it should be banned. Though I must admit I never go out of my way to read the express or mail.
@acetech, what is it that you don't understand about democracy? If there is to be another referendum, it will be on the terms of the EU withdrawal agreement. If we end up not leaving, it will be because of the incompetence of this government and the ignorance of an electorate who didn't know what it was voting for when it entered the polling booth.
The deal returns sovereignty to the UK, but it turns out this is not the 'will of the people' afterall.
