    Your post was 'thumbed up' by 4 people who also did not follow the link.
    Just like the Referendum leave vote - people voted for something that they did not properly look into and understand.
    I'm impressed how you squeezed so many assumptions into one post.

    An interesting and somewhat naive response from you considering that you didn't bother to click on the link!
    Here it is again

    Try again.
    You are correct, I did not initially look at the link. The content of my reply didn’t deem it necessary as I was referring to your apparent complacency. I didn’t mean to offend you but you seem a little prickly.

    I am not interested in the personal pettiness of the squabbles, but I have now had a look at your link and I did find it somewhat amusing, especially from your point of view and I can see why you are pleased with it. Well done you.

    As long as they're English people. I think a general election would be very interesting right now!

    Here is a reminder of reality:

    Brexit referendum voting results:
    - there were 17.4 million for Leave compared to 16.1 million for Remain
    - 406 Leave constituencies versus 242
    - Leave won, unequivocally and by what would be called a “landslide” in a general election

    Here is where the conflict arises:
    - 486 versus 160 MPs voted for Remain
    - In effect, this Remain Parliament is trying to block Brexit.

    Now, imagine that this was your country and it was your government trying to overturn a result that you passionately believed in. Just stop and think about that, just pause for a moment and reflect before you reply.

    Effectively, if not practically, the UK is in civil rebellion against its parliament.

    Now please put aside for a moment your loathing of Fargue and consider the “landslide” result above being translated into an actual election. This is what I’m talking about, not these Mickey Mouse rallies or “we’re upset ‘cos we lost” marches. Rallies and marches mean very little, it’s votes that count. VOTES.

    I really think that calling it a landslide is about as misleading as the brexit campaign from the start.

    First past the post is so outdated it’s a farce.

    406 constituencies vs 242. In a UK general election that’s a landslide, it’s game over for the losing party.

    Do some research.

    My point of course, as I obviously need to explain it, is that if the Brexit Party gets a candidate in each constituency it going to be fun and games here and I can’t wait.

    Parliament could rue the day they didn’t pass May’s crappy deal.

    Edit: as I said “power to the people”

    You wrote a lot of words unrelated to what i said. I specifically expressed my scepticism that 18 million people will vote for farage.

    It has been explained, again and again, that the nigel is a racist and a liar, that the leave vote was split according to whatever vision each had and it's ludicrous to claim the leaver who believed Uk will be like Norway has anything in common with the racist leaver who thought there will be less immigrants.

    A vote for brexit two years ago doesn't mean in the slightest a vote for the farage now, especially since more and more of his lies and racism have come to light.
