Discussion in 'UK politics, current affairs and news' started by Kaka Tim, Jun 27, 2016.

?

Will we have a brexit?

  1. Yes - A fully independant Britain making its own way in the world (apart from scotland).

    18.5%
  2. A Semi-Detached Norway type deal

    34.0%
  3. No - 2nd referendum and/or face saving fudge to let us slink back in feeling a bit fucking stupid

    47.5%

    Do you think they would build social housing? And what do you think this would actually mean?

    Surely do you think that they'll win 326 seats? Is more to the point

    Centrist Dadism must be resisted whenever it rears its ugly head.

    Had to look up centrist dadism.... I've done my tour of tilting at windmills... But that's how you end up a centrist dad.

    So you were simply making an inaccurate statement.

    Look into centrist dadaism as an alternative.

    Puddy_Tat meh

    wonder if tony blair will offer to lead it to a glorious whatever?

    and generally :facepalm:

    i can see some people i know getting excited by this.

    :facepalm: again

    including someone whose political journey has gone something along the lines of SDP - SLD - Lib Dem - New Labour - Green - Lib Dem (with a brief foray somewhere in to Wessex Regionalist somewhere along the line but I can't remember quite when)

    i've given up talking politics to him...

    The39thStep Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour?

    I think there's been about four or five attempts to set up new parties for a second referendum , they've all never got off the ground. Even one that had a coalition of established MPs would struggle imo.

    I think actually that's what it would need to get off the ground. I actually think that will probably happen at some point, but not until Corbyn/Labour polling drops a bit.

    The fundamental problem with this belief is that centrist dadism of that kind is one of the things that is keeping Corbyn (and May as well) so high in the polls. As an alternative to anything except themselves they are useless.

    Incomprehensible jibberish anti-brexit frothing, must be a Guardian journalist.

    Total made up nonsense which Goldsmith seems to have fallen for or more likely is happy to go along with.

    Didn't Mogg have a private meeting with Bannon, and then was 'roughed up' with a Brietbart camera crew really conveniently present. It's hard not to see it as part of that, tbh. The Tory hard right trying to whip up sympathy/an excuse to shut down protests as the sunny uplands gets cloudier by the day.

    No, these days I am in a neighboring constituency where the 80 year old is the MP.

    ETA: Maybe that's who sent the message. Maybe they met at a whist drive and fell out somewhat.
