So..... Jacob Rees Mogg can change his mind and change his vote on the Brexit situation.
But, the rest of the U.K. population can’t?

Ian there was a referendum on 5th June 1975 asking if we should continue to be members of the EEU which was duly passed by parliament , there fore I see no reason why the result of the last referendum should not stand as all MPs pledged to honour the result .

Things change. That's why we have elections every few years but what I find curious is the way those who voted Leave seem utterly terrified about a second referendum. Wonder why that is?

So, all eight of the Parliament votes were defeated.
Hence there is no majority for any of the ways out of the mess they are in.
Just when I thought it couldn’t get any more absurd!

I voted to Remain in the EU and was surprised to see that Brexit had won the referendum, however as  the majority of the people who voted, voted for Brexit then Parliament should abide by the result.
The mess that we are in at the moment could have been avoided if Cameron had thought it all through before making the announcement about a referendum

It's little consolation that Cameron will go down in history as one of the worst PMs the UK has ever had.

An Englishman, a Scotsman and an Irishman walk into a bar.
The Englishman wanted to go so they all had to leave.


“People were confused by the arguments either way – they interviewed people the next day on the news, one bloke was like ‘I voted leave but I didn’t really want to leave Europe’ – there were two options on the form, how did you screw that up? Another bloke said ‘I just voted Leave to get the Muslims out’ – he’s in for a shock when he finds out Muslims don’t come from Luxembourg.”


VOTERS: we want to give a boat a ridiculous name
UK: no
VOTERS: we want to break up the EU and trash the world economy
UK: fine


Have we tried unplugging 2016 waiting ten seconds and plugging it back in?


“‘In and out’, it’s a very hard decision. It’s like the other day, my flatmate was making me a peppermint tea, and he said ‘would you like bag leaving in, or taken out?’ If you leave the bag in, on the whole the cup of tea itself will get stronger, and it might appear that the bag is getting weaker, but it’s now part of a stronger cup of tea. Whereas if you take the bag out, the tea’s now quite weak, but the bag itself goes directly in the bin.”


How did the Brexit chicken cross the road?
"I never said there was a road. Or a chicken".


I know it's not very "politically correct" to say it out loud but in the wasteland of ruined Britain I am going to hunt and eat old people

Don’t forget the Welshman - he voted to leave, the result in Wales was 52.5% in favour of leaving. The result in Aberconwy was 54% in favour of leaving, a majority of over 5,200 people.

If you believe in democracy, then you accept the result of a democratic vote.

But it wasn't a democratic vote, in that the majority of eligible voters didn't vote to leave.

And I have to wonder why the Leave campaign people are so terrified of another referendum. Don't they believe in democracy?
