    Somehow I don't think there'd be quite as much uproar if we'd have chosen to stay.
    Oh I'm quite certain Farage would be stirring up a huge amount of it.

    That older generation has, by far and large, passed away. Futile point.

    Its more about showing that the older generation have done so much more for this country, then a bunch of spotty teenagers and twenty somethings who have no clue about life.

    What kind of silliness is this? Clearly, the older people will have done more. Did you expect anything else?

    The question arises as to whether someone who will not be alive should have the power to dictate the lives of younger people. Not referring to 65 yr old people, but when I heard people applauding a 93 yr old woman I got a headache.

    I think the worst thing is not the very elderly, because fair play to them, they went through war and hardship, but white racist people in their 50s and 60s brought up in a wealthy country with every opportunity to advance who blame everything that is allegedly 'wrong' on immigrants and are positive 'Nigel will fix it'. They give me the creeps.

    Unfortunately, your views give most people the creeps.

    Although strangely I get heaps of reps and new followers when I post my views, so perhaps that's not "most people". :smug:

    Anyway, I'm one of the majority who would now vote Remain if the poll were rerun.

    This may have been mentioned already but I've only just seen it:

    "Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair says that a second Brexit referendum should not be ruled out in the process of redefining the country’s relationship with the European Union (EU)."

    That was BEFORE the referendum was held, and was said in response to Farage indicating he wanted a re-run if he lost to a close vote (Farage said 52:48 for Remain would be too close - sound familiar?)

    It was also DC who said he would not resign if he lost...

    Oh really? So sorry guys, my bad for the false alarm. This was sent to me a few minutes ago so I thought it was most recent. I'll just take back my comment lol.

    Exactly, I think the Bremain lot really are clutching at straws. Their staunchest ally in Bremain was greatly in favour of no second vote.

    I also recall reading on BBC earlier that Angela Merkel essentially implied the UK should be allowed to rethink this decision.

    God sake I can't find it now considering there's a new story about the EU every 10 seconds xD.

    5 people on the BBC said they regretted voting Leave, so Remain would now win.

    Erm I had actually watched and listened to the video twice (I kept replaying it because of the silence at the end) but didn't hear the "if". Maybe it was because this video was sent to me with this newspaper article concerning article 50 being issued on Tuesday:
    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/134671...-this-tuesday/
    I guess I didn't listen properly. But yea, as I had said before my bad. It was my mistake..

    LOL. On this, conveniently, yes.

    If it had been the other way round then probably not. Isn't life strange...
