    Why waste a month and the money for an election, or do you want an e en larger Tory majority?

    We are at a turning point in this country. We the people now have to decide which way we turn. If that's a larger tory majority, so be it. I somehow doubt it.

    Now that we have "taken our democracy back", there surely has to be a general election to decide how we approach these negotiations going forward? The Conservatives were elected on a manifesto which assumed we would stay in the EU, meeting any of their economic commitments is now pretty much impossible. It is not solely for the tories to decide how we move on from this tragic day.
    I agree that an election is needed eventually but it should be once negotiations are complete and we have the official exit. I don't see why we should hold an election to ask who should negotiate given that we don't know how much the EU will give us anyway.

    You're also the one deluded enough to think Corbyn is winning in 2020

    And leave has won

    Aph we get it you don't give a damn about what anyone else but you thinks but the majority of people disagree with you and a good thing about our system is that your ideas of screwing the people over will not get into power.
    I do care what others think and can be convinced but no one has presented a credible argument to leave.

    And to think that the people always know best is an outright phallacy.

    That won't happen however. I'm just so annoyed with Dave now. He shouldn't have called this referendum.
    There's nothing wrong with giving the people the choice. The problem was his failure to explain the simple economic reasons why the UK will be worse outside the EU (rather than just saying it's the case and pointing at some fancy names), and also his failure to put across the economic benefits of immigration. Basically he has shown himself up to be what we have known all along, he hasn't got a clue about economics.

    It's not project fear. It's real fear because we face real disaster.

    Oh I'm not deluded, I know we won't get a general election. I just think we should.

    And I know. What's your point? Not even the people on the leave side agree on the way forward once leaving.

    I think the failure has more been austerity and not helping the poor people out. And I don't belive that people should be given a choise when parliament is fairly United and it's only a move to make teh government stable.

    Scotland is leaving, the pound is falling, the Irish will be revolting, Spain will be taking Gibraltar...
    There may not be bombs but there will be chaos.

    Scotland is leaving? When was that decision made? Spain is not taking Gibraltar, tje the pound is being hit by people being dramatic and will be back to normal in a couple o weeks at most, and that's not a very nice thing to say about the Irish.

    When are the bombs falling?
