This is what taking back control means, riding roughshod over UK law and acting like a little Hitler.

You can have a go at the structure of the EU and its policies till the cows come home, the reality is in this country our political system is no better.

Flush should love that site it's got graphs and charts galore.
Pure fact porn !
Hardcore Herd, hardcore. So per capita we are 6th and the Netherlands plus the Scandies contribute more individually than we do. You'd be quite peeved if you was in one of these countries, but one thing the study doesn't quantify is the return on investment in terms of economic wealth.

Ooh Boris Trump broke the law..... pretty typical of the type of upper class twat that is brought up to believe the law is not an issue for him, just the focking peasants what what what! :censored: :lol:

Pretty fu.cking irrelevant compared to the parliamentary fu.ckers who have done their best to overturn the biggest demonstration of democracy this country has ever seen. Does democracy begin with the people or the deceitful pri.cks in parliament. And it's really time that you proles got over your status....that's why we give you jobs and religion to occupy yourselves :lol: Go on Boris :barscarf:

How is it irrelevant? The cornerstone of our democracy is built around the sovereignty of Parliament. It’s Parliament that decides the laws of this country. Again I reiterate, the Brexit argument relentlessly banged the “bring back control” drum.

So when a Prime Minister deliberately closes Parliament down that just smacks of double standards in my book. Not forgetting he is breaking UK law.

Blame Theresa May for coming back with a dud deal, and Boris Johnson who claimed he would get a deal but has no intention of doing so and is just counting down the clock trying every dirty trick along the way.

Irrelevant because democracy comes from the people first. It's a bit like policing which is conducted with the consent of the public rather than the state. Many of our MPs are deciding their own Brexit position irrelevant of what their constituencies voted. My constituency is Leave yet our MP is one of the rebel twats who went against the govt and quite rightly got booted. We elect him to represent us not himself. So if Parliament want to ignore the wishes of those who voted for them then they are bringing about this shitfest themselves. If we don't leave then why should I listen to anything that the state tells me to do in future - all bets are off at that point because the wanky liberal elite think that they can try and ignore the result.

Boris knows that the only way to screw a deal out of the EU is to play hardball with the fu.ckers. We might end up leaving without a deal to call their bluff but a deal will be done pretty quickly thereafter. All this poncing about over Ireland is effectively bullshit. Unfortunately we have to hit them with economic reality to overcome their federalist ideology which is what this is all about....oh and our money! Pathetic.

You're looking at it the wrong way round, the people advise who they want to manage the country in the form of elections. The politicians are given free rein to make decisions on behalf of the people. If Democracy came from the people, explain how a minority government managed to close Parliament down until it was judged unlawful?

In the case of a referendum and again this has been discussed to death, the EU referendum was an indicator, not legally binding. The framework for leaving the EU has to be decided by creating laws under our constitution of Parliament. The original proposal for the referendum didn't come from the people, it was earmarked by David Cameron who was under pressure from the likes of the ERG to have a referendum. He then included it in his 2015 election manifesto.

No mate, you are looking at it from the wrong way which is just as the MPs would like you to think. We vote these clowns in based on the promises of a party manifesto not for them to do as they please once they have our vote in the bag. The fact that they have gone rogue has shown what a pile of shite they all are. They closed Parliament down because Labour wouldn't use the time honoured tradition of calling a confidence vote in the government of the day - that's bleedin obvious. That could have been sorted out before Parliament was prorogued.

It doesn't really matter how the referendum came about - the whole legally binding thing - Jesus give me strength - a losers argument. What it did demonstrate is that rather a lot of people did want to have a say about the EU and rather a lot of people in this country clearly don't buy into a United States of Europe.

But that's the reality of politics in the UK these days, isn't it. The politicians do whatever they want, some out of wanting to stop us leaving the EU others forcing a damaging Brexit, and some to preserve their position of power and careers. This is why so many people including me are so disenfranchised with the current shower of the political parties that are supposed to represent us. If there was an option "none of the above" on the ballot paper it would win by a landslide.

Law is not a question of being a loser's argument, it is what our democracy is built on. Without it, there would be anarchy on the streets.

Brexiteers like you think it's just a question of walking out the door, this isn't something that ends on October 31st, it will take years to unravel.

Nutflush is spot on - I'm afraid you just don't understand how a parliamentary democracy works.
the MP is there to consider the views of all their constituents, if you don't like your MP you get a chance to vote them out every 5 years.
If you are lucky you might get another chance in the next couple of months.

bottom line is this - the UK does not take decisions on referendums, it take decisions based on what Parliament decides.
Parliament is sovereign. I know it might have come as a shock for Brexiteers this week that Parliament and the courts do actually have real power.
After all you are force fed propaganda that says all power is in Brussels these days, but that is the reality.

only there won't be a no deal Brexit because there has been a law passed to prevent it.

Holland and Norway are huge producers of natural resources so being in a large free market is an absolute no brainer for them. Not sure that there is a movement within Denmark or Sweden to leave the EU, polls suggest otherwise although there are populist movements in both countries.

Sweden rejected the Euro through a referendum many years ago, and maintain their sovereign currency as does Denmark. A small sample size yes, but I have come across quite a few Swedes in London and none of them agree with leaving the EU.

I dont know about the swedes but Iknow loads of Danes and they would vote out in a nano second if we left properly as we should have done. Norway is a producer of oil and gas you can sell it anywhere you dont need the EU for that ask Saudi . Norway like Switzerland was bullied into a treaty and the Noggins hate it.

I worked for about a year on a project in the Oirish Dept of Agriculture and i can confirm Germany is the largest market for Danish pork followed by the UK and China. The largest Danish export area is actually their medicine.
