    I think it would be a good thing, compulsary voting , it would then put an end to all the doubt and show a fair result

    PS. I should correct my earlier comments that we've borrowed 122 billion to pay for Brexit - The office for Budget responsibility says that 58.7 billion is directly attributable to Brexit. Still outrageous - We could run the military and the police for a year for that figure.

    Like they do in Australia? One of my friends got a 50 dollar fine for not voting!
    Not sure about that... maybe... think I'd need to read up on it before forming a view.

    Just think that so many in the 25-40 bracket (I know a few) just assumed remain would win so didnt bother to vote. I dont blame the young or the old for the outcome, I blame my generation.


    As an opponent of the EU tankie, are you hoping for a 'No' vote in Italy next week?

If Brexit goes ahead I really feel we've betrayed the next generation.

    Though I think the real demography to blame for this is my own one (25- 40) year olds. You can't blame the young, they will always have a low turn out, but only 55% of the 25-40 year olds turned out to vote. That's disgraceful in my view, when our generation benefitted so much from the EU and the freedom of movement.

Unfortunately, many of the younger generation don't understand the national pride felt by previous generations and dismiss them as a bunch of xenophobes at best or closet racists at worst. The internationalist (socialist) agenda at work via the EU is its own enemy, as it has nothing but contempt for its own citizens. I haven't met one Italian, Cypriot/Greek, Pole etc (and I talk to many) that disagrees with the UK leaving, not one. In fact, quite the opposite. They say we've shown real balls! The only people that are complaining about the result in the UK are people who have been doing very nicely out of it while the rest of us have struggled with over regulation...
    Which regulations are you looking forward to getting rid of?

    Just as a note there: If the UK got a soft Brexit and managed to negotiate for Norwegian access conditions - which is rather unlikely - upscaled accordingly to British GDP at the time of the vote it'd have saved about 1-2 billion pounds a year compared to previous contributions as a member to the EU. Of course those 1-2 billion would then have likely gone into related costs on top of the Norwegian conditions, such as paying for British national former EU staff (which, in a lump sum, would probably amount to anywhere between 5 and 10 billion, and will definitely be an item of contention in exit talks if the UK ever dares to declare Article 50).

    We won't make any savings by from paying into the EU Tankie, because that money is the price of the single market. Without tariff free trade and more importantly regulatory free trade, our business's and exporters are far less profitable, meaning the tax take shrinks. Even Boris described it as a trivial fee for the single market.

    Foreign aid is another subject (12 billion a year). But forcing our children and grandkids to pay back the 122 billion plus interest for Brexit is morally disgusting. We shouldnt be doing it.

    You can run the whole NHS on a year for that money, never mind the interest

    Tankie, do not assume that which is not proven to be fact. And you are getting very close to the line with the name calling. As i have already said, ratchet it down.

    The Euro is a safer currency that the Pound right now, and is performing a lot better than Sterling since the referendum. Hell, the Argentine Peso and Venezulan Bolivar is safer right now..
