    i hate the term remoaner !! just to be clear anyone that stands up for what the believe in gets my respect … even the people on the other side of my beliefs. also just to highlight the hypocrisy it was the leavers moaning that's created this in the first place.

    Its the best term for those who have refused to accept the vote. Prior to the result both sides were saying that whichever way the vote went, it would be respected. Some remain voters like myself and Groot have accepted the vote. The remoaners haven't and have set about trying to prevent its enactment from day 1 to the detriment of others. That isn't standing up for your beliefs. its being a selfish twat who chucks their toys out the pram when it doesn't go the way they wanted.

    I think the best solution is to do what India and Pakistan did after independence and have a sort of Partition

    Obviously Northern Ireland needs to be in the EU to avoid the backstop and Scotland wanted to remain so put the border up the Irish Sea and along the current Scotland- England border. All people wishing to remain in the EU then have a couple of months to move into Scotland or NI, while any leave voters move into the England- Wales bit.

    Anyone who has not moved by the end of the two months would be beaten to death by hordes of Remainers or Leavers in the respective areas.

    We could even have a Kashmir equivalent extending from Barrow through Kendal to Middlesborough up to the Scottish border for those who are undecided.

    No I think there would have been equally as many cocks on the leave side if it hadn't gone their way.

    However that is just my thoughts and its not based in reality because we decided to leave. So we will never know. Regardless it doesn't make what the remoaners have done for the last 3 years right. They're all still a disgrace and a bunch of children who only think about themselves :biggrin:.

    Oh yeah. I was out of brexit mode when I made that comment. That comment is purely about the state of this country not anything to do with remaining or leaving the EU

    The thing that continues to astonish me is the crazy arrogance of believing this country is somehow still 'great'. Just because a handful of foppish wartime Etonians keep saying it, sponsored by The Donald, does not make it so.

    Failing NHS, dreadful rail services, ridiculous spending on services we just don't need (HS2, Crossrail), national in-fighting, antiquated political system, struggling education, rising crime, plummeting care, etc., etc. Brexit is emblematic and the result of our many flaws, not the cause of it.

    Doesn't look much like an award winning MD thread though, does it?

    Turncoat for accepting the vote <laugh>. I think this sums quite nicely the remoaner issue to be honest.

    The country decided to leave. Those who still want to remain, are not willing to accept the vote and are willing to keep disrupting any progress should probably just move to the EU. We can then crack on.

    Nah. They have to make the Long March up North to Remainland (or Scotland as it is now known) ****ting themselves once they get past Watford Gap. The M1 would be declared a protected zone enforced by the army. It might also make Leaveland less London-centric if most of the population migrate North.

    I think it will, the previous election was essentially Corbyn yelling at an empty pedestal, May barely got involved throughout the entire campaign and he still couldn't gain enough. Most Labour MP's have a very small majority in their seats and a lot of them are sitting in Leave voting constituencies. I believe in Doncaster the Brexit Party was only 1 thousand votes off in a few key leave seats, and that was when Labour were running on a Brexit manifesto.

    Every single metric we have to predict an election result is showing that the Tories will likely come out with about as many seats as Theresa May did if Boris performs poorly. If Boris has a complete disaster of a campaign it looks likely to result in a hung parliament. If Boris performs well it will be a Tory majority, but for that to happen I think he needs an election pact with the Brexit Party.

    I heard Farage this morning and while I usually think the man is a ****ing cock, he made sense this morning, that if the Brexit Party and the Conservatives back each other in most seats it will likely result in a large number of close victories for the Tories and a large number of close defeats for Labour. We may even see Farage and some of them lot in Parliament.

    The Tories are doomed in Scotland, but so are Labour, that really won't make a difference. It all comes down to the two major referendum parties, the Libs and the Brexiteers. If the Tories and Brexit combine their campaigns it's over, they will take Labour seats it's as simple as that. If they don't I think the Lib Dems will take enough seats from both sides to force a Hung Parliament.

    I think Corbyn is absolutely nuts to still be Labour leader, he should have stood down and allowed a younger Remainer stand in his place. They need a leader with a young and strong opinion on this key issue, I personally still think Corbyn is a leaver too afraid of Tom Watson beating him up after Parliament to speak up.

    I didn't predict Corbyn to do well, merely that Boris won't get a majority and that he won't be PM.

    If he ran now He would have a reasonable shot. By November, though, he will be a busted flush.I
