No deal BREXIT

This is the best option and what is needed. It is what most people voted for. I voted remain but nobody voted for a โ€œsoft brexit" and all that nonsense. I think there will be a reduction in living standards for some and maybe increased job losses, but for most people it wonโ€™t make a real difference. Overall it is nothing to be concerned about. I can see the UK breaking up one day and that may be the best thing but it will take a while.

What Would Stuart Pearce

Yes, but that does not mean you cancel Brexit. It's what people voted for. You can't live life without consequences for your actions.

However, I do believe these things are overplayed as well. Britain will cope and find solutions to the problems that would occur.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Whilst you may "believe" the consequences are being overplayed stakeholders do not.

The evidence given to the government by the medical profession for example.

Radioactive isotopes used to treat cancer have a very short shelf life (some no more than six hours) are imported from the EU.

I do not deny there will be consequences. There will be. But you cannot stop a democratic vote. The fact we are not leaving today is a problem. It highlights our democracy is broken.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The vote was anything but democratic.

All sides lied and broke the law. The national crime agency (following a referral from the electoral commission) are also investigating Leave.EU/Aaron Banks.

People voted Remain based on false info, and likewise with Leave.

I don't recall "Vote Leave, take back control (but be aware some cancer patients might die) " being on the side of a bus.

What would Stuart Pearce do? (U3126)

Many leave voters would still vote leave today. The information was out there. We live in an internet age with much information about. No democratic vote is without lies. That is just the way it is.

Every decision made has consequences and people will suffer and prosper from them. That is life. It's the sad reality. However, it does not change the fact we should be leaving today.

"The mood and atmosphere in Parliament Square is very strange for a demonstration. There is a really significant police presence - yet a lot of quiet but angry, angry people who believe that Parliament has "betrayed" Brexit. When the news came through that MPs had, yet again, refused to back the PM's draft deal, the reaction was rather mooted. George, from St Albans, told me he was satisfied - because he hoped the UK could now crash out without a deal - as the public demanded. One man has a coffin as a prop, declaring the death of democracy"

The backlash if we don't leave would be huge. It is a disastrous option.

There's certainly quite a crowd. I thought maybe they were offering free English classes in central London today, as most of the 'patriotic' Leave voters I see expressing their opinions on social media struggle with the basics of their own language.

Nigel Farage following Tommy Robinson onto the stage in Westminster.

And brexiteers this is your champion?!

Farage saying he's in enemy territory in Westminster. He's also in enemy territory in Brussels. Has he ever thought that he might be the problem?

Why is he the problem?

You do know that 27% of the population is a minority

You do know that less than 40% of the electorate is a minority.

There again, looks like you probably don't realise that.

Abstention is a valid option in political decision making about binary/polar change. Essentially, abstention is recorded as not supporting change from the status quo.

There is no 'we', and that defunct 'we' argument is ultimately the last refuge of the uninformed, desperate and dishonest.

"It's the will of the people" holds next to zero meaning if you're unwilling to support a second vote.

Now more facts and realities are at least a bit more in the public view and the blatant lies certainly have been exposed. The most popular search the day after the brexit vote was "what is the EU" FFS.

Given it's crystal clear the available terms of leaving are worse than the terms of staying for the majority of the people in this country (no one even bothers to say otherwise any more) parliment should just cancel. However given they don't seem to have the countries best interests at heart unfortunately it should go back to the public to save themselves

There was only a 10th of the crowd that turned up last week. Most were either Ukippers or Tommy Robinson supporters. Hardly representing most in the country. And what was it with the drummers, looked more like a loyalist rally.
