Exhibit #1: acetech the bastion of intellectual debate.
Intellectual to you is obviously only those who agree with your ideal regarding how results of a referendum should be calculated and not how they are, that isn't debate that's your way or you sticking your fingers in your ears going "la, la, la I'm right your wrong, the system is wrong and I know best about everything and anyone else is an idiot" when you cannot even begin to fathom that for your argument to be true the opposite also has to be true regarding the referrendum. You claim that to not be true but have proven it to be so repeatedly.
You know I said in your other thread some are hardly worth bothering with because they think they already know and dismiss everything else.... Well.... Yeah
Dude, (@acetech), just literally **bleep** off.
I have attempted to engage in open, honest discussion with you and for reasons known only to yourself you have rejected each and every attempt so I now conclude that your only purpose in responding to me if to deliberately attempt to illicite an emotional response from me.
I'm not interested in such juvenile things so **bleep** off and play your games with someone else.
If you ever want an open, honest discussion and are willing to refrain from personal comments come find me, if not...
When you won't even admit that "the referendum came about because some people wanted to make a change to our relationship with the European Union, that proposed change was put to the electorate for their endorsement and consent.", is what happened without trying to claim "spin" there really isn't any point in you speaking to me on this matter.
It's totally delusional, (you object vehemently to the ignorance assertion and if I accept that, which I'm perfectly willing to do despite the lack of demonstration of acquired knowledge, it must be delusion). Even primary school kids who are familiar with the situation know that is what happened for goodness sake.
And if it's not ignorance or delusion then it is someone blatantly taking the **bleep**.
I voted to leave and because we are a democracy, then whatever anybody thinks is irrelevant because the country has voted to leave END OF! I Studied government and politics at O 'level (and passed) and to be honest I don't think we should have joined in the first place but also it had stopped being "a common market place" so I believe that the EU pretty much forced our hand and that's why I believe the majority voted to leave. We certainly won't be any worse off out of the EU beurocracy I don't think But I suppose time will tell.
As someone with an O level in politics, please explain the relationship between a representative Parliamentary democracy and an advisory referendum.
Did it say that on ballot papers...
You are very welcome.
