Nearly a year on from the referendum and with talks about to start, have you changed your mind about your vote?

Voted leave, would still leave.

I just wish May had not called an election.

No. Voted remain and still remain.

Mind you, I would always have been pro-Leave until the run-up to the election, but I could see that there was no clarity on the post-Exit settlement and that it was going to be a cluster****. Mind you, I didn't realise it was going to be this bad.

Nope. If anything, the contempt the EU has shown towards the UK has probably had more effect on some remainers than a more pragmatic approach might have had on some leavers.

Just saying...

(Edit: and ditto what BP says. )

What actual difference would no having an election have had ? May is an incompetent c**t and always was, regardless of the size of her majority.

Britain's 'hand' in Brexit negotiations is what it has to offer trading partners in terms of trade and unique services, not the size of May's majority. We're holding a 2-7 off suit right now.

The publie deserve to have an opinion on the outcome of an advisory referendum that'll change our lives for decades. Why should the result of Tory infighting be forced on everyone for decades?

And the PM has soiled herself and dropped the cards on the table face up.

Don't worry Scooty, you won't have to worry when the Scots get their independence. Oh...wait...

89 per cent of UK citizens would like to have a second citizenship and many of them are prepared to spend a considerable amount for the privilege, according to a new survey.

The UK could fund 175 Cypriot citizenships a week with the money it currently sends the EU.

No violence, no damage, no-one personally injured just chanting, having lost friends and family.

Can someone explain why this is so bad ?

Careful, I quoted that figure a few weeks ago and got torn a new one. By Darmy I think - I could be wrong, but certainly one of the Euronumpties who claimed it was a figure invented by the FT. And now you're quoting a figure invented by the Express.
Do us all a favour, and <use your imagination>....:eyes

Just more socialists with rights. Right?

Nah, I just think the whole thing has become annoyingly politicized that evil Tories burnt you're tower down for 5k but Socialism will provide for everyone brand new state of the art accomodation for nothing and you pay nothing because it's your right.

Terrible tragedy. Make sure another one doesn't happen ever again by taxing companies and old Southern Tories, the murdering bastards.

Vote Corbyn

Nail...hit...head!

Jezza is a real Job's comforter.

The whole world will be a better place when he and his cohorts have the helm.

After all, why should the feckless ever have to take responsibility for their own predicament when the blame can always be attributed to some affluent fooker further up the food chain?

And there we have a staunch Brexit supporter summing up the Brexit camp perfectly - feckless and passing the blame to others.

Good job Shaun, you've seen the error of your ways.

If they're not blaming you for not spending enough money and making their lives care free they're blowing themselves up and trying to take as many people with them.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Better to have not invited them around in the first place.

I haven't changed my view on leave. I would still vote leave, but now I favour a softer conciliatory brexit than a harder one.

But truthfully, given the division it's caused, I would take it all back and not have a referendum. Yeah I don't like the EU, but I dislike even more what it has done to my country having the referendum.

The end destination is clear regardless of Labour or Conservative, landslide majority or no landslide majority. The UK is going to end up like Switzerland with partial access to the single market, but obliged to allow unfettered EU migration.

The business Tories will get what they want allowing them to set up sweat shops and import cheap labour from wherever they want, but the Leave voter in Scunthorpe who voted for it to limit migration is going to be mightily disappointed.

That's been obvious for years. If the Tories really wanted to limit immigration to the "tens of thousands" they could have started with non-EU. They didn't. If they wanted to limit EU immigration they could have implemented the same controls that the majority of other EU countries implemented. They didn't.

Leave voters who are hoping for a reduction in immigration are pinning their hopes on promises from a lying PM that was Home Secretary for 6 years and failed to achieve much at all, and MPs that have been asked repeatedly which industries they will restrict immigration for and they can't answer.
