Consequences Of Brexit [Part 9] Read First Post Before Posting in General Discussions Posted December 22, 2020 47 minutes ago, retep said: I can see a lot of disappointed remain voters on the 1st of January. What, you mean more disappointed than in the past 4 years? I can see a lot more people disappointed than merely remain voters a few weeks into January. The current logistics nightmare and shelves getting bare up and down the country? That’s a foretaste. Trade &customs experts can explain why, if you’re bothered. They were predicting the container crisis weeks ago, likewise the current Channel bottlenecks months ago. 56 minutes ago, ECCOnoob said: What's nonsense you are talking. The 2019 election was exactly an opportunity for people to change their mind. If there was even a sniff that the tide turned and people were no longer wishing to leave the EU - any party with even a proposal of overturning would have absolutely stormed it come polling day. They didn't. Not only did the clearly brexit pushing Tories win the election they won with a huge increase in their majority share. If that's not a clear signal of what the majority wanted in relation to brexit I don't know what is. I don't particularly like the results of leaving myself. It certainly was never my choice. However, I'm also smart enough to see see the clear direction that things have taken. Whether it is actually disaster remains to be seen but you cannot possibly pretend that the public have not spoken. Who on earth are you to arrogantly declare that the majority electorate choice is wrong and your position is right? That sort of attitude doesn't doesn't sound much like 'democracy' to me. That's what dictators do isn't it. This Tories huge increase was gained by a minority of the electorate. 37.something percent. Over 50 percent of the electorate voted for parties opposed to Brexit (Greens, LibDems, SNP, etc i.e. neither Tories not Labour). FPTP did the rest. A bit less revisionism, please.
