Aw bless. Hard remain and anti democratic war criminal says we should have a second referendum in true EU style and keep asking the same question until the EU gets the answer it wants.

It's time to go global and cast off the shackles that have held us back for so long. You do realize that would include accepting all foreign product and safety standards, right?

If Canada can get a deal done so can we. We don’t need a free trade deal remember. And the EUSSR are not the only people who we can trade with. Sigh, did you even care to read my previous reply? Yes, you need a trade deal with the EU. You don't have a choice. And yes, you will pay out of the nose f...Jump to post

Instead so much bitterness towards us. So much hate. So much I’ll feeling. Why?

One must chuckle from time to time. If it’s such a great tragedy that we are leaving the EU then surely it’s a case of simply saying ‘that’s a shame but bye’. Instead so much bitterness towards us.

It was meantioned we will have to pay in billions to trade with the EU. Canada trades freely with the EU yet doesn’t pay a penny. Simple really! Because Canada doesn't need the trade with the EU.

If 50% +1 vote a particular way then I’d expect a fairly balanced view just as I’d expect if some vote result was 52/48 in favour of something however the BBC ignore the 52 and appease the 48.

The BBC need to find experts to go on their panels for these programs from both industry and politics. It turns out that to be an expert in these areas generally requires a good level of education and understanding, and hence the reason for less Brexit supporters on these programs.

Over half of the votership voted Brexit by a margin measured in millions and more people voted Tory in GE17 than in Labour's last landslide win.
