    Rees Mogg will be tipped of in advance as he’s a practicing Catholic and him being the team player he is he will scupper the plot.

    He’ll probably hedge against the shares of the insurance company that insures parliament.

    Yes.

    But, they made a mistake then.

    Immigration

    EU Immigration will decline as Eastern Europe catches up. It was a bonus as it helped our economy. The EU migrants will be replaced by ROW migration as we need migration. So, waste of time there.

    Money
    Spunking the money was in reality paying for the privilege of SM and CU membership of the largest trading bloc in the world. We gained more that it cost which is why we were in it.

    Laws
    We make our own laws and have a sovereign parliament for doing so.

    In other words, we gain absolutely nothing by leaving, but could crash the country in doing so.

    Actually this last bit should sum it up.
    We vote Conservative because we want lower taxes. We understand the concept but aren't qualified to implement it. We expect the people we elected to sort it.
    We vote Labour because we want a better NHS and fairer system. Again we understand the concepts but really aren't qualified to work out the details. Again that's why we voted for you so sort it out.
    People voted Brexit because they assumed the people they normally vote for would deliver it for them.[/QUOTE]

    They also all had their own idea of what Brexit was and since charlatans told everyone their own Brexit would happen everyone went in.

    I think he put it up a few days ago. I just thought it was funny, whether you voted leave or remain.

    Okay mate, perhaps he should be arrested then. I just thought it was funny that's all. Better to hang out a banner and make your feelings known than to go out and kill someone.

    Seriously??? You cannot separate the two? Was that post made with any link or knowledge of the NZ attack? One is dreadful reality, the other poking fun at a current political shambles!

    Guy Fawkes is actually celebrated 5th November every year. Not the actual terrorism of it. Where you draw the line is different to others.
    The post was in no way linked to anything other than a failed plot being the answer to Brexit arguments in a parliament that cannot seem to sort itself out. So I don't think it is fair to make the poster feel shit because of what happened in NZ AFTER (I suspect) they had posted it.

    Some of the more idiotic Brexiteers make me laugh. For ages they shout terms like 'sovereignty' - now parliament carries out a series of votes the outcome of which they don't like, they're no longer so keen.

    What is celebrated is the capture of Guy Fawkes rather than the act

    Yes, that is right - still doesn't detract from the sentiment meant by the chap with the banner. Nor the interpretation of the poster, nor mine. It is amusing. It doesn't mean I am suggesting someone actually goes to try to blow parliament up.

    Far more sinister tones on the various social medias stating poll tax riots will be nothing compared to Brexit being overturned.
    i went on poll tax marches and they were horrendous.

    The poll tax was genuinely detrimental to people though. Delays to Brexit are not and avoiding a no deal Brexit certainly not.

    I'm genuinely surprised there hasn't been more protestation in respect to austerity.

    I guess that shows how capable our media has been in distracting from it.

    2 issues that at people are/were extremely passionate about.
    References seem to be more about a reversal than delays etc.

    Possibly as austerity is a more widespread global issue
    Whereas these 2 issues are most relevant to one country.
