    When I stood in the polling station and voted Leave last year, I've got to say that a poster I knew to be untrue did not feature in my mind. I simply wanted the UK Parliament to be the supreme body in our country, and for our Supreme Court to be the final arbiter of decisions that come before our courts. It had nothing to do with that sodding poster. Why do Remoaners still cling to that rubbish for why we shouldn't leave?

    Because people have different opinions to yours and you would have to just deal with it.

    Maybe you need this put on a bus. For the record,it doesn't imply any thing, except that people are thick as pig ****, if they believed that (and many did)

    Maybe you should stop crying because someone disagrees with you and grow up?

    I accept that people disagree with me. The Remain vote did gain almost 50% per cent support after all (not quite enough to form a Remain vote though).

    I get angry though by people who say I misled by some ****ing poster on a bus and therefore we should have referendum part 2.

    I get that people have different opinions to mine. I simply don't understand why they desperately claw to the straws of 'people were lied to!!!!!1!'. If they want to have an argument to our relationship outside of Europe, then I'm happy to listen.

    Do you think it's ok to flat-out lie in a campaign?

    Shouldn't you be "getting over it" ?

    Remoaners are people who just love being subjugated by Brussels and watching their sovereignty wash away into the sands.

    If it furthers his cause, apparently yes.

    That's not what this thread is about. I am asserting that despite those lies, people like me voted to Leave for truly selfless and patriotic reasons such as wanting self-governance which we shall never achieve through the EU. I don't doubt that the underclass heard the tones of that bus (but then I think that they didn't bother to vote as they never do).

    Of those who voted leave I'd say the vast majority had been asking for such a vote for a long time. So they knew which way to cast their vote before the referendum campaign even started.

    So not everyone who voted leave did so based solely on the bus?

    Who is claiming otherwise?

    I am. I don't dispute that a small uneducated minority may have done so based on the bus. I'm not complaining though, because guess what? Here we are with Article 50!

    As others have said, you can't speak for the millions of other people who voted to leave, perhaps they did believe what that poster said. The Supreme Court won't be the final arbiter whether we are in the EU or not, if you want free trade with Europe - which is what Brexiteers promised - then we will need something like the EFTA Court.
