I don't agree with some of the reasons why some people voted Brexit Watch

    That is what they voted for though in the general election, so that is what they are prepared for. I will laugh when **** hits the fan.
    Sorry, what are you on about? Iceland did not vote for all but one of it's banks to declare bankruptcy in the same year. Icelanders did not vote for Icesave to fail, which basically meant that they owed other countries a massive amount of money.
    Iceland did not vote for that at all. In fact what happened was fraud on a massive scale and those responsible were jailed. For a disgracefully short amount of time, but still.

    Yes, Iceland did vote for Sigmundur Daviðs many years later but they were completely unaware of his tax free assets which he had lied about and sold to his wife for one dollar to essentially hide. Saying they voted for that is like saying everyone who voted for Tony Blair is personally responsible for all the sh*t he stirred up abroad. You cannot hold people accountable for all of the actions of the person they vote for, as they have, in reality, very little power over the actions of the government and the truth is constantly being covered up until many years later.

    UK public spending deficit:

    Darling

    2007 - £34 bil
    2008 - £43 bil
    2009 - £175 bill
    March 2010 £163 bil
    Osborne
    June 2010 - £149 bil
    2011 - £121 bil
    2012 - £90 bil
    2013 - £108 bil
    2014 - £84 bil
    2015 - £69 bil (3.6% GDP)
    2016 - £56 bil

    The massive increase was a result of Labour trying to spend their way out of the recession. This did actually work to some degree. Its been on it's way down since.

    I stopped reading at 'racism' to be honest.

    People are sick and tired of their immigration concerns being labelled as 'racist'.
