    But being sensible and voting to remain are mutually exclusive.
    You really shouldn't get those two words mixed up

    The difference is people voting out expect the result to go the other way, if we actually vote out it would kill people like you.

    Are you used to this kind of thing where your mum says you can't do something, so you cry and cry until she gives in just to please you?

    No? I just accept it and move on...
    The difference is that the British public don't know what is best for them.

    Democracy is highly flawed. A technocracy would be better.

    So, when we probably vote to remain in later, I'm going to quote you on that.

    And of course, you know exactly what is best for them.

    Okay, mostly.

    Given that the only out arguments are emotive yes. One should never make a decision based on emotion.

    Yes because taking away people's right to elect a representative would be in their best interests it wouldn't lead to trouble at all.

    The issue is large amounts of political apathy and voting because you were in doctrines into doing it... And people voting for stupid reasons.

    Oh, so they know what's good for them when they vote how you think we should go, because obviously your view is the only thing in this world which is correct, and makes sense.

    I find it incredibly arrogant, or perhaps just naive, that you think you know what people are thinking, and what's best for them all.

    And we could say the exact same about you.

    Oh no, wait... you're view is the correct one, and anyone who has even a slightly different view is wrong and shouldn't be allowed to vote.

    Well, I don't think we're even capable of learning to be honest. We should just listen and obey.

    I know what people are thinking because I talk to them...
    I'm also not saying that my veiw is the only correct one... I'm always open to being convinced but no one has done so.

    Lord make the nations see
    That men should brothers be
    And form one family
    The wide world over
    A lovely part of our national anthem. Don't turn your back on our European brothers, stick with your family today and vote #bremain

    Didn't you know, I talked to everyone at UKIP HQ and they told me they all want to leave the EU... So that's surely what the whole nation wants to do.
