paragon of democracy Putin has declared that May must respect the will of the people.

 

Couldn’t make this up.

 

Brexiters are Putin’s poodles

 Putin understands how  UK democracy works. The difference between the UK and Russia is that Russia have a system of managed democracy. The Russian system of democracy would suit all the people, who still want the UK to remain in the EU  because their state's policies always remain unchanged after their people vote in elections.

And the remain camp only managed 34.73 of the entire electorate that turned out. And you are right, we don't need a second referendum as the first one had a majority. 

Do you think there's a majority for Brexit now?

That is the most stupid post about politics  I’ve ever read on here.

Too early for the biscuit I'm afraid. Toast soon tho....

You standing ready to "vary your diet" yet?

 

Apparently that is part of the advice about to be dispensed to Britons by Whitehall Brexit planners.

The EU isn't enforcing austerity in Italy, the populist joke that passes for the current Italian government is maintaining it through its ineptitude. 

 

Now, can you try and make a cogent argument for a change, instead of disingenuously misrepresenting my post with your strawman?

 

I'm asking once, in the clear, and nicely. Next one like that I'll just report.

The EU is absolutely enforcing austerity on Italy.

 

The democratically elected coalition government want to introduce a mild pro-growth budget which includes a basic income for the poorest people (over 5 million in Italy live in absolute poverty). But fiscal discipline, not people, is what is important to the EU.  So the non-elected EU threatened the elected Italian government with an Excessive Deficit Procedure which could have led to a fine of about €9 billion if it did not capitulate.

 

The coalition government wants to spend to stimulate growth in the economy, boosting consumption and employment, as EU austerity measures have failed - creating terrible poverty without cutting the national debt.

 

So basically austerity, which hasn't cut debt, is being used to placate the markets. The EU, as always, puts the markets before people.

The very best thing about Brexit is that it's a national liberation movement that puts people before profit.

 

Remember folks, EU fiscal discipline is NOT applied uniformly to all members of the Eurozone.

 

There is nothing fair about the EU.

How will recession, job losses, restricted movement and food shortages benefit the people exactly?

What recession? 

The Employment sector is booming, with very low unemployment and wages rising.

We have no restricted movement or food shortages.

 

You can obviously see into the future, or are you just repeating government scenarios which have a terrible record of actually happening and quickly become discredited?

 

Do you have anything original to say?
