I neither know nor care what Farage will do if there is a remain vote.

I shall move to pressing for desperately needed reform in the hope that the sinking ship that is the current EU can be kept afloat with us tethered to it.

 

My side lost the AV referendum. When it comes up all I say is that we lost and the matter is settled.

 

If one side wins by 1 vote, then as far as I'm concerned, it's settled. I cannot speak for others.

Well that's good news on the face of it.

Surely the Lisbon treaty came into force on 1st december 2009. What kicked in in 2014?

 

That was the first time the Commission president was elected from within the Parliament (who, in turn, selects the commission).

Isn't the commission euivalent to our civil service?

 

No. It has no British equivalent.

No, tzijlstra's right on that point. They're closer to the cabinet except for the process by which they're appointed, removed and held to account.

The EU commission does have a civil service (they are sometimes lumped in when people talk about the "commission" but that's rather misleading). There are 33,000 of them.

Thanks for that. But they still don't make the final decision?

New member, few posts, all about how fickle people are, none about what a shame a woman has been killed by a lunatic.

 

Maybe their username should be Fromthegrassyknoll.

It is a great shame about Jo Cox, and for some on the remain team to try to use it to their advantage is a bit shameful.

 

The message ought to be that her death should inspire people to take part in the referendum, not link it to one side.

They initiate all legislation and hold executive power.

That is shameful. Who on the remain team has tried to use it to their advantage and what did they say?

 

I will make a complaint.

Farage talks about more immigration from outside the EU.

 

The vote leave MPs will have a hard job keeping growth going if immigration goes down to less than 100,000

 

Who shall we stop letting in, the cheap farm workers, construction workers, nurse/doctors?

 

Its important to consider what Farage's agenda is. He knows full well that businesses will start screaming as soon as their supply of cheap workers is reduced. Farage's mission is to drastically reduce the numbers coming from the EU so they are going to have to come from somewhere. He's said it himself what he has planned - more non-EU immigration.
