  1. People have been misled in every election & every referendum since time began. It has always been up to the individual to weigh up the merits of the competing information, decide what is true & what isn't, & vote accordingly. I would estimate 75% plus of the establishment wanted remain. Remain was the known, safe option. We voted to leave.
  2. Absolutely. And I'm not trying to persuade you otherwise. But it would really, really help if you could improve your English!
  3. I keep trying to. But then thehowler, Dave Beans or somebody sensible posts something interesting & I get drawn back in ...
  4. Indeed I do! Nothing to do with that bunch though. As I've frequently said, I voted against joining the Common Market (& had a few 'heated debates' about it with acquaintances at the time.
  5. pidgin English Dictionary result for pidgin English noun a pidgin in which the chief language is English, used originally between Chinese people and Europeans.
  6. No, but I wouldn't go on a French forum, for example, if my French was as poor as your English. You wasted my time (hundreds of pages ago) before I realised you didn't actually understand what I was saying & trying to have a conversation with you was futile.
  7. What games? Suggesting various options? Next time she wants to play Beetle I'll say "No! No way Beetle! We're playing Beat Your Neighbours & that's final!! Sometimes on here I think I've locked myself in a lunatic asylum.
  8. Brilliant! Abso-feckin'-lutely brilliant! Do you ever stop to take a look at yourself??
  9. "They" never had any power to do anything. It's neither right nor wrong to make any of the above suggestions. It's up to individual people to decide whether the suggestion is viable. Personally I never expected the money we send to the EU to go to any particular cause. It just meant it was money we were no longer obliged to pay to the EU, it could be spent on projects in the UK, & if we didn't think the government was spending it wisely we (collectively, democratically) could get rid of them.
  10. Insofar as I can understand your pidgin English (fact, not insult) then you are reiterating the standard remain position that all leavers are thick as mince.
  11. If you do not understand what I am saying then I can only conclude either a) you have problems comprehending English or b) you do understand, but it doesn't suit your argument.
  12. You're trying to rephrase the message on the bus to suit your own ends. It said what it said, not what you wanted it to say. "Let's" IS NOT A STATEMENT OF INTENT. no matter how hard you try to twist it. Web results Let's definition and meaning | Collins English Dictionary https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/lets contraction of. let us: used by a speaker to express to suggest that he or she and those being addressed do something. let's go somewhere else. Collins English Dictionary. Copyright © HarperCollins Publishers. It's a common trait I've observed on here: change the meaning of words to try & win an argument. I would agree you could argue about exactly how much we send the EU (net). But remainers seem loath to do this - because even net it's still a shed load of money.
  13. That's just a fact. My 6 year old granddaughter knows the meaning of "let's". So perhaps I should have qualified my statement by saying " or below the age of 8".
  14. If you don't understand the meaning of "let's" then you are educationally subnormal. It is a suggestion. It offers a choice. It is not a promise, or a command. But then, remainers always think people voting leave are thick as mince & don't understand this. So I'm not surprised by this perpetual barrage of sh!te from the remain camp.
  15. Thought it very good. Some genuine insider info & didn't appear to have an axe to grind (unlike poxy Sky).
  16. Unfortunately to me she comes across as a patronising holier- than - thou bitch. The Green representatives I've seen mostly make me want to vomit. (this is speaking as the greenest person I know; the jumper I'm wearing is at least 20 years old & the holes in my jeans are not a designer add-on. I grade my rags & my record for a piece of bog paper is four folds).
  17. We'd have a lot less fresh stuff on the shelves & there'd be some very poor EU farmers. Unless ...
  18. I think that means the net result will be the same. We won't be importing tonnes of rotten fruit for very long. The exporters will rapidly lose their market.
