Consequences Of Brexit [Part 8] Read First Post Before Posting

Groose

Mod Note: As we are getting rather tired of seeing reports about this. The use of the word Remoaners  is to cease. Either posts like adults, or don't post at all. The mod warnings have been clear.

In addition to remoaner we are also not going to allow the use of libdums or liebore - if you cannot behave like adults and post without recourse to these childish insults then please refrain from posting. If you have a problem with this then you all know where the helpdesk is.

If the case for leaving the EU is so strong, why is the repeated use of fake news necessary to convince people of that case? 😳

Well you keep using fake news in some of your posts and have only just recently stated that the referendum was discredited but by who is not known.

 

Unfortunately as people are becoming addicted to mobile phones and social media sites so fake news will now become the norm. Its always been the case but now instead of being called propaganda its now called fake news.

Because they can't win without it and they know it.

Win what? We have already had a referendum where the winners were declared to be in the majority for leave.

Correct, there are no flies on you, but who is on about the 2016 referendum? I am on about the 2019 general election. Also could you link me to any fake news that Top Cat has posted that could affect the result of that general election please?

Tell you what! I shall donate £100 to Sheffield Childrens’ Hospital if apelike can produce a single piece of evidence for his claims that I keep using fake news in my posts.

 

And while he’s at it, maybe he can address my point that it is almost exclusively the Leave campaign which produces and spreads fake news.

Exactly, that's why I called him out on it.

In case you have not realised this is a brexit thread, if you want to discuss the GE then do so on the GE thread.

I said some of your posts and here is one example:  Unless you can produce evidence and details of your claim that the referendum was discredited (fake news) then I look forward to you giving that £100 to the hospital!

But you never stated that it was almost exclusively the leave campaign that produces and spreads fake news though did you? BTW it is wrong to say "almost exclusively" as it either is or it is not.

There was no result to implement.

 

It was an advisory referendum where not only did neither side attract the support of even 40% of the electorate, but there was only 1% between the two options. As I have said many times, it was an act of great political cowardice to promise to leave the EU based on that inconclusive, discredited referendum, not least because every poll before and since has shown that the majority of citizens wish to remain in the EU.

This reporting of FAKE NEWS has to stop.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/politics/eu_referendum/results

 

As is easily checkable, in the June 2016 referendum Leave had a UK vote share of 51.9 per cent (17,410,742 votes).

 

Remain had a UK vote share of 48.1 per cent (16,141,241 votes).

 

A difference of 3.8 per cent between the two options.

I think Jeremy has been forced into it by Blairite elements in the party.

 

Jeremy, like myself, is a lifelong opponent of the European capitalist project, the EU. The Labour party is a democratic party, so a second referendum will happen under a Labour government because a lot of the members support it.

Isn't that "a lot" an overwhelming majority?

And didn't a large majority Labour voters vote remain in the referendum?

Timely thread bump: Elon Musk has decided to site his European factory in Germany due to the uncertainty caused by Brexit. He’s also dropped plans for a U.K. R&D center, which will now also be sited in Germany.

Thanks Brexit.

 

It's not like this wasn't so sadly predictable.

 

But, y'know, something about fish.
