    And so again...point proven. Failed put downs seem to be the order of the day for some remainers. Yet the reality remains. 17.4 million are waiting to Leave and no put downs, inaccurate information, Groundhog day accusations or weighing up of the same debate can escape that.

    The 'winners' cheated, broke the law... So, like Ben Johnson and other cheats they must be taught the lesson tbat cheats never prosper.

    Repeal Article 50 now...

    If there was wrong , why didn't all uk mps stop the referendum Outcome before, during or after and nullify the 'vote' ? And is Parliament itself the referee here, or has Parliament been biased? Been there, been discussed, and point made and won.

    Perhaps questions seem to be repeated because the answers, false accusations and failed attempts to undermine Leavers is repeated. No one can change the repeating democratic message and 'vote' of: Leave the eu. That is clear.

    Except the 600,000 or so voters of both Leave and Remain that may have died since June 2016. Their contribution to reshaping UK politics is certainly immaterial.

    Spot on!

    *my previous reply appears to have disappeared, but if it hasn't, apologies for duplication on my part, but I do think the post by MrMedia is worthy of duplication*

    Re those that have died. Been there done that. Point already proven some time past. Since when is it okay to not count the votes of the recently deceased - included murdered? Isn't that a dictatorship? Isn't that swindling the Outcome of the vote to suit?.

    Not counting votes because - voters are seemingly racist, seemingly not intelligent, have died, seemingly are wrong, and are seemingly awful in every way seems to be the aim on this thread in places. The story really is one of sour grapes then, and a democratic vote that wasn't liked.

    Time to move on to a successful multi cultural society outside of the eu where winning voters are not tarnished with every fault of a failing society.

    Looks like it makes the paperwork easier but they still have to meet the same criteria we do. Since we can't walk over a border to the US, I'm not really sure how this is any better that what we already have.

    It really isn't that easy to get an American visa regardless of nationality.

    Since the magic number of 17.4 million keeps coming up endlessly - here's a small point.

    There WERE 17.4 million people who voted to leave THREE YEARS AGO - a small majority.

    But all indications seems to be that there are now considerably less and that there is no longer a majority to leave.

    So who now is being betrayed ?

    Did you read about Lynton Crosby's funded pretend grassroots campaign? 1m people clicked on their adverts exhorting them to send a prewritten email to their local MP backing No Deal. At the same time, it sent an email to the corporate group who thus gained the email address. They’ve spent more money on this since 2017 than all of the political parties combined. There’s some dark money behind all of this. When they do the obligatory investigation into all the Brexit funding and dark money of Cambridge analytica it will be interesting to see exactly which billlionaires were seeking to profit from manipulating the opinions of millions through carefully targeted and well funded propaganda.

    But the most likely scenario at the moment is that we leave with no deal at the end of October - don't forget we are likely to have a cabinet of leavers by then with who knows in charge.

    Make no Mistake Ladies and Gentleman the Brexit fanatics will very shortly be in total control of the agenda.

    And what happened? Why, the MPs voted to rule out No Deal.

    So the not so delightful Ann Widdecombe has now joined the Brexit Party and will be standing as an MEP.

    What do you think are the barriers to us being a successful multi cultural society in the future?

    Should we be valuing ethnic, religious and gender minorities views and valuing their commitment and contribution to the UK more than we do now?
