    Turn out isn’t enough to be indicative about proportions. Reckon the Libs will be detoxified by this though. Any future GE with tactical voting could see a smart electorate return a clear coalition between Libs, SNP and whoever wants to stop Brexit.

    I’m not too sure if I’m real either.

    If the people who voted aren’t real what’s the purpose behind it - it’s not as though the result here means anything!

    Some people are so entrenched in their own beliefs they can't accept anyone has opposing views. Confirmation bias.

    You've only contributed 8 times yet you've felt able to assert that?

    I wasn't referring to you. There are certainly sock accounts on the vote list though.

    It does fascinate certain posters, because (I reckon) they see it as an easy way to counter your view(s), and thus dismiss anything else you say. It is remarkably similar to Francois and Self. Francois either truly didn't see the difference (demonstrating enormous idiocy), or pretended not to see, in order to play a persecuted victim role, and score points.

    Maybe you did write "All Leave voters are racist". Frank. Quite a few are claiming you did. Unfortunately no evidence remains.

    I'll be honest. I may have done. I can't say for sure (& I'm certainly not searching back through 21,000+ posts to find out!:D). But I'm happy now to agree with Self, and with the Venn diagram I posted, but has now been removed.:mad:

    I just cant believe that Frank would say such a thing. It is just not like him.

    A clear win for Brexit - and I think also a clear indication throughout the EU that its days are over.

    I thought it was an open (if moderated) forum

    The Conservatives: conserve nothing.

    Labour: A middle class politically correct liberal party who have no interest in their traditional, working class voters. Now owned by the SJW brigade.

    The Liberal Democrats: Neither Liberal or Democratic to want a second referendum when the first one doesn't go your way.

    Change UK - The Independent Group: in what sense does a party, including a candidate with the name Johnson, who wants to remain within the EU, coupled with a liberal, globalist outlook, represent change?

    UKIP: obsessed with Islam and taken over by some internet people who make videos. A sinking ship. Good.

    The Greens: the antithesis of UKIP but with more authoritarianism. A party for rich people who like to virtue signal their conscience to the less well off.

    The Brexit Party: A party gaining support from Northern England (traditional Labour) and the Shires (traditional Conservatives). Led by a shyster yet incredibly popular, particularly from those parties the rest of the above treat with condescension (omitting UKIP).

    We can and I accept your point of view even though I don’t agree with it (thinks: now where did I put that milkshake?!)

    Good for you Frank for admitting that you might have done.

    In case anyone's wondering (which they probably aren't), I'm not some sort of Frank fanboy - there are quite a few of his posts I disagree with. However I did want to probe deeper into this infamous assertion that is referred to numerous times by others.

    Sorry I was being mildly sarcastic from long experience on these boards.

    A few posters don't understand Voltaire... you have my unwavering support for your position.

    Just been to vote.
    The staff at our polling station said the turnout by 10.30 was way in excess of anything they've experienced before.
    In reality this is an unofficial second referendum........don't count the seats, count the votes.
    We live in interesting times.

    Interesting... I am curious what turnout will be... if apathy wins out...

    There seems to be a lot more energy around this European Election than there was around the last General Election.
