    But he doesn't pay tax in the UK... So he can save money... Other businesses can compete, but would so better if they didn't pay tax in the UK... HE IS AVOIDING TAX, IS NOT AVOIDING TAX SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF, HE WAS APART OF THE REMAIN CAMP SO HE COULD BENEFIT FROM CHEAP LABOUR, THE **** SHOULD PAY UK TAX IF HE WANTS ANYONE TO TAKE HIM SERIOUSLY THAT PAYS TAX IN THE UK. HE'S A BILLIONAIRE FOR **** SAKE, OFC HE SHOULD PAY THE UK TAX RATE AND NOT MANIPULATE IT IN SUCH A WAY HE DOESN'T.

    Improved trade terms for tomorrows market, perhaps? Reduction of harmful regulation? Greater long term growth?

    All sounds very vague to me. Improved trade terms- how?

    So you think that despite the majority of economists stating clearly that it will be harmful, and will have a negative long term effect, you disagree. Why?

    Care to cite any saying it will have a negative long term effect without making dodgy assumptions such as the treasury's "no other trade deals will be made," and btw, that's how you get better than WTO terms.

    You liberals are all the same, throw toys out the buggy as soon as you don't get your way. Bottom line is this - We had our vote, you voted for what you believed in and albeit you lost. It's not the end of the world, the only real losers here are the EU and the worlds obscenely rich. If you wasn't all brainwashed by the Murdoch machines propaganda, you would see what's really going on here too.

    And after all if you love the EU so much, you can always move there and leave the country you have turned your back on to get on with it.
    You do realise Rupert Murdoch wanted to leave the EU?

    Hilarious that you'd tell me I'm brainwashed.

    No, the real losers are the poor. The rich will keep being rich, and the EU is more stable than ever, with the Brexit reducing popularity of far-right parties across Europe. It's the poor that get ****ed when the EU stops investing in them, austerity leads to the NHS failing more and more, and they can't afford rising food and fuel prices.

    How can giving people a second chance to vote in light of new information, and the outing of blatant lies ever be "undemocratic"?

    Brexiters are so against the idea because they are well aware that the tables could well turn. Many people regret their decisions, which were uninformed and influenced by media propaganda and dirty tactics in the first place.
    i voted Remain, but i do not wish for another Referendum. it sucks deeply that our country has been plunged into turmoil by people who do not know what a dirndl is, but that is the joy of democracy. *

    What is up with all the condescension from the remain side, even those who don't want another referendum? Why is it that we so often read remainers implying that loads of those who voted to leave and uninformed, or racist, or just plain stupid, but on the flip side all remain voters are well informed, PC, members of the intelligentsia

    And that would be completely reasonable. Or maybe in future we should define some rules for referendums instead of allowing an irreversible constitutional change to be made with a 2% majority based on a completely unregulated campaign.
    Quite.

    I'm not opposed to Jeremy Hunt's idea of having a referendum on whether to remain or leave based upon the outcome of the exit negotiations(if legally article 50 can even be revoked once invoked?), but to have another one just because people have caused a fuss will just create a never ending cycle as neither side would win by a large enough margin to shut the other side up.

    It's hard not to be condescending when you watch stuff like this



    Obviously it doesn't apply to all leave voters, but for many this was an industrial-scale temper tantrum that ****ed all of us.

    Of course they weren't, but remain voters weren't calling for radical change, and they aren't to blame for the consequences we're already seeing.

    To relieve them of blame is absurd, unless the result was 100% remain on 100% turnout, which it wasn't, then remain supporters could have done more.
