    hmm the people have had enough of eu making laws the people have had enough of them going against their wishes the people have had enough of them milking the system making themselves millionaires into the bargain hmm the people have voted out perhaps the ones wanting to stay are themselves the turkeys has they closed their eyes waiting for that upside feeling before the lights are put out for said turkeys

      What you’ve said, could also be said of our Tory government! The EU can actually protect us from their worst excesses. We’ve now allowed our far right wing government an almost free rein. And leaving is going to cost us far, far more than staying in, both financially and socially. Only 25% of all “the people” voted out – hardly a majority. Turkeys are still wearing blindfolds, methinks.

        That’s a bit desperate, Barry. casalealex would have had to have referred to a “Turk”.

      Actually it is the government that set the level for union turnout which includes all parties none of which wish to remind it, however the referendum to leave the eu had the largest turnout ever for any vote in the nation, and a single vote differential was enough either way to decide it because no level was placed on it, mainly because the remain side thought they would win but couldn’t be sure of hitting a pre set majority. The Turkey’s must have thought Christmas would be cancelled this year when they voted remain.

        The 1992 general election had a higher turnout, Barry, so the EU vote didn’t have the highest turnout.
        Why should we believe anything else you say about it?
