    Early results. Mostly expected, some not so.

    UKIP dead.

    Cons mopping up dead Kipper vote and doing well.

    Labour losing a lot.

    LibDems and Greens picking up a few. (Sunderland?)

    Hartlepool conceded already by Labour but no result yet.

    UKIP has taken up residence in the Tory party.

    That was Pearson again wasn’t it? An absolute disgrace of a footballer, but Woodgate seemed proud. They’re all complicit and I’ll be keenly looking for their demise until each and everyone retires. 

    That was Pearson and he was only feet away from the referee, who had a clear view. The replay was even more damming.

  3. For many years the Tories were known as the party for law and order, and safe with the finances,  and I always thought the Labour party stood for fairness, and whilst I still feel that the overarching message from Labour is fairness, the Tories are morally bankrupt. The long list from Nevermind sums them up and it is well evidenced. I believe they are working to a plan, and sadly it seems to be working. I have friends who have voted Tory  all their lives, and I am shocked at how they try to defend the corruption and incompetence, especially when they say 'would it be any better under Labour' I just do not understand how people cannot see what is going on.

    The refusal to buy EU goods will not bankrupt our economy BUT it will move supply of goods to other areas, mainly from the UK as it rebalances  and gives more business to UK companies, existing and new as we develop outside of the EUSSR. We are already seeing biotech companies such as AZ and Novavax avoiding the EU as they behave agressively towards innocent business in raiding factories and denying exports for legitimate orders. .

    Goods that we cannot supply in the UK will be imported from outside of the EU  ASAP. 

    In a thread that contains more than its fair share of hairbrain ideas, this takes the biscuit. Do you really think stopping trade with the EU would not harm us? I give you parts for the car industry as a starter for 10.

    I don't think that's unreasonable, and I voted Remain. A decision of such magnitude will not reveal everything right away and there will be some degree of shock and adjustment as the transitions are made.

    However, I'd also say that the true benefits AND drawbacks will be revealed in that time.

    Brexit was sold to the masses on the premise of immediate benefits, and in my book, 10 years is not immediate. I have yet to see 1 immediate benefit, but if anyone would like to give some examples, feel free.
