    I voted Leave because the EU is run by and for big corporations, plus the way the EU treated Grease, Cyprus etc was disgusting.  It is true the MEPs do not make rules they just ratify them.  Remember Turkey's do not vote for Christmas.  
    My political views are probably  more left wing than most on here, though its obvious unless you are a Neo liberal you would want OUT of the EU.  Why would anyone want big business to rule over every decision and big business make up all the laws to suit them selves. 
    Right across the political spectrum if you believe in democracy the EU is just WRONG. Thats the thing with democracy you can have a Government you strongly disagree  with, yes even Corbyn but if he is elected then he should Govern.  he probably wouldn't be that bad because the rest of the labour party wouldn't let him pass law on most of his socialist ideas , maybe nationalise the utilities at most. Same with the right wing of the Conseratives they probably bring in more free market ideas but  again they would be stopped by the rest of the Tory party if they decided to privatised the NHS. 
    Back to the EU, IN my view it started off many years ago as an excellent idea as a free trade area common market.  Common Market Cheap food for the people, easy trade for companies between the member countries, then it went wrong.  The EU resembles more of a corporate Fascist superstate now, another reason to leave.
    We were given a vote the uk voted to leave the EU, its easy we just leave.  Remember its the EU who are being awkward.  The Irish boarder can stay the same as far as the UK is concerned, its the EU being awkward and the EU who will break the Good Friday agreement not the UK or the Irish. 
    The UK population are being nudged by the media constantly, the media are part of the problem.  If you sit back you can see the media are behaving similar to George Orwell's Ministry of Truth.  We are at the point now where it is nearly accepted that a uk wide democratic vote  is being totally ignored.  The population are being washed into believing only bad things will happen if we carry out the will of the people. (Edit) The media are peddling.  An alternative will have to be found or we will have another vote to get the right result.  
    We must not let the politicians con the population into having another vote.

    You never know after brexit the UK might make silver vat free to create a new industry. We can change vat on lots of things once we leave the EU. Something we can't do at the moment.

    Sorry but that's absolute rubbish. Brexiteers had a myriad of reasons for wanting out. For myself it was the uncontrolled EU immigration, that has led to a low wage culture. Along with the fact that we have to pay billions of pounds for what is essentially two countries saying to each other, "if you follow my rules and I follow your rules, I won't put tariffs on your goods and you won't put them on our goods" That shouldn't cost a penny for two nations to do that, but the EU like their gravy train.

    A bit of a difference with giving an incorrect figure in Switzerland, leading to overturning a referendum, with brexit, where the arguments were more on things that could or could not be true, and neither side could actually see the future.
    And before anyone starts banging on about the bus. If you actually knew your facts, there is nothing in that bus that was a lie. We do send that money to Brussels, and although we get some of it back as a rebate, everyone knows that a rebate can be stopped. And you have to think why did the EU give us a rebate, instead of just making our payments smaller, because a rebate is temporary that's why. And with the EU getting rid of a countries veto in 2020, that rebate would have been stopped and there would be nothing we could have done about it. 
     
    Anyway back to this story, no doubt the remainers will be creaming their underwear with this story, but if they tried to cancel the referendum here, they'd better be prepared for UKIP/Brexit party/Tory coalition for decades to come. 
    It only takes about 3O% of the vote to put a party into government, there are around 48%-52% of voters who are brexiteers. Just create a few websites on tactical voting and the jobs done

    We all know who the content creator you are referring to is. Its become a sad state of affairs when people are scared to mention the name Tommy Robinson, for fear of censorship. Whilst TR is a bit of a tool in the past, and occasionally has a daft moment in the present, the treatment of him by the left wing social media and MSM, is disgraceful. The guy has NEVER been convicted of any hate crime in the UK, a country that has some of the strictest hate speech laws in the Western world I might add, but he has been kicked off EVERY Social media platform for breaking their terms on "hate speech". It's a joke.
    BUT.......there lies the crux of the problem, and its something that the pragmatist that is Nigel Farage has spotted. Whilst TR has done nothing to warrant the tag of being a racist, the fact that the MSM have labelled him as such, means that the majority of the population who don't follow the intricacies of the current left wing bias in the media, believe that TR IS a racist. and by him aligning himself with UKIP, then they by default are also racist. It makes UKIP in some peoples eyes impossible to vote for. Which in my mind is a shame, but this is the world we currently live in.
    Unless UKIP and the Brexit party come to an agreement not to stand in the same constituencies, then the brexit vote will be split, and both will struggle to get seats.

    It's very simple, if you are a brexiteer, then to vote tactically, you have to vote for a brexiteer, but you also have to vote for the party most likely to get a majority, or the highest number of seats at least.
    If you checked out the number of mps's who were actual brexiteers, you'd find several hundred tory MP's, about a dozen labour mp's, and that's about it. Sadly that was never enough to win any votes in parliament. Already plans are afoot to deselect hundreds of remainer tory MP's, (some have already jumped, and joined the tigs), and replace them with actual brexiteers. Hence my list stating that to get a brexit supporting parliament you have to load it with brexiteers. Labour are going the other way, and are in the grip of momentum, and will have a bunch of far left wing marxist candidates, who would revoke Article 50 in a heartbeat, as well as raiding pensions, Isas, Reducing capital gains tax thresholds, and hitting financial institutions big time. And yes, labour will come after your gold and silver..
    Because there are no other parties who at the next election that will have a chance of winning the election and be pro Brexit, the tories, (once the remainers have been deselected, and a new brexiteer party leader is in place) are the only choice. If you happen to be saddled with a remainer tory candidate, (some will manage to hang on), that is when you are forced to drop down to UKIP or the Brexit party .
    And to be honest, anyone thinking of voting labour needs to have their heads examined.

    I have to disagree with you there. There was a concerted tactical voting campaign in Scotland in the last general election and Scottish parliament elections, to get rid of SNP MP's and MSP's. So much so, there were websites showing who to vote for in order to get the sitting SNP candidate to lose their seats. They managed to not only get rid of Alex Salmond and their Westminster leader Angus Robertson, but they reduced their seat numbers by  a third in the general election, (56 seats in 2015, 35 in 2017), and by about 10% in the Scottish elections, (from 69 to 63), which lost them their majority in Holyrood. Its a bit harder to hit the SNP in the Scottish elections due to the weird proportional representation system they have. 
    If you are a brexiteer, then the next general election, (if brexit doesn't happen or it is a fudge), then tactical voting will jump up to the next level. It's very simple, You look at the list of candidates in your constituency, and find out who is a staunch brexiteer, and if there is only one on the list, then vote for them. If there are several, then you vote for the one that comes first in the following party order. Conservative, Ukip, Brexit Party, Independent, Labour. You can ignore the LibDems, SNP, Greens, basically because they are brainwashed remainers.  
    If we get to have some fun in the EU elections, then its simple, just vote either UKIP or the Brexit Party, do not vote for any other party. The party list proportional representation voting system will ensure a huge number of brexiteer MEP's. Add them to the massive rise of other nations anti EU parties and the numbers of MEP's they'll get, the EU will have serious problems getting legislation through. The EU as a political entity is dying, and the more the bureaucrats push, the more the people will push back.
