    Reliable statistics and figures from a trusted source might do, but the random vapid outpourings of your zany imagination are, like so many of your "contributions", entirely worthless.

    You would have thought so but once again, PaperBhoy, you would be wrong. You personally may have voted for Brexit but others simply thought Jezza must be the Devil incarnate so they best put a lying buffoon in charge of this great nation. Weird but we've learnt how utterly barmy the electorate is inclined to be. Despite everything, the majority is for staying in the EU (at 52%)

    Well that is certainly one way of looking at it. Entirely speculative of course, but if it fits your cranky narrative knock yourself out.

    We've had three and a half years with no facts whatsoever. But the facts are just starting to come out.

    The facts came out on December 12th. The most glaring of them being that the electorate at large were acutely aware that their wish to LEAVE the EU had been getting thwarted every step of the way by whining politico Bremoaners in Parliament.

    The necessary steps were taken by the voters and now it is full steam ahead...............at least on the planet that most of us still live on.
    Maybe you could give us the view from Planet Deludia?

    UK representative democracy died on the same day the referendum was called. If the last 3-4 years have shown us anything it is the UK parliament no longer works. Ironically supporters of leave used the last election as confirmation of the referendum result.

    Freddie Mercury was once asked, what instrument do you play? The audience darling, came the reply. This is what Boris does to the electorate. Tells them what they want to hear. Much like Thumps voting base (like the Trump voting bankrupt Montana farmers sitting on a mountain of Soya with no one to sell it to). Vote for the soundbites, forget about the consequences.

    Jim Jefferies speech from 4 years ago.. he was spot on.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
