The result clearly shows the UK was fed up being told what to do by an expensive bunch of ruling elite who were unelected,expensive,unaccountable and wasted money.
Sound familiar?
Isn't it about time we stuck two fingers up to our own ruling elite and demand an island that we want,not one created in their dictorial vision.

Caught this and thought it should be shared, the positives of the UK and Brexit. Thanks to Ja1.

We sit at every table. The UN, The WTO, The G7, The IMF. Nato. We wrote the rules at the WTO, most were purloined from the British East India Company. America took its constitution from the Magna Carta. Canada and Australia run on our constitution, Hong Kong is the financial hub of China. We built it.

We're responsible for 52% of the world's most beneficial inventions to mankind. America comes a far second at 22%.

The cutting edge of technology, communications, data and engineering is F! motor racing, Every major team including Mercedes is located in the UK because of its advanced engineering base. We lead the world in electronic and internet payment systems. Everyone's trying to play catch-up.

Politicians have no idea about industry or the outside world because they don't live in it. They work far fewer hours than anyone else, secure their own extortionate pay and pensions and give others penny lectures on what's best for them. The establishment's finished and they've nowhere else to go and desperately trying to hang on. We'll survive and prosper outside of the EU. Others will follow and join us.

End

It must be obvious to any one who reads that the EU as a club, is in a mess and it's getting worse. No one wants to be ruled by elites that live in Ivory towers and are detached from the reality of daily life.

Thought this item on  " soft brexit " was so well put it may offer readers food for thought ?

Ednoth, Newport, United Kingdom, 36 minutes ago


I wonder if all these remàin Tory M.P' s appreciate what the consequences would be if they achieve their goal of a soft Brexit.. The outrage at such a betrayal would inevitably cause a huge proportion of the thirteen and a half million who voted Tory last time to resolve never to vote for such a craven Party ever again. The immediate aftermath would see a Marxist government installed in number ten and the disintegration and subsequent demise of the Conservative Party that would never recover from such a contemptuous dismissal of a democratic instruction from the British people. Is this really what Hammond, Rudd, Sougbry and many others really want!

The usual Daily Mail scare story. Is there anyone daft enough to believe that tripe? Whatever Brexit we get, the Tory vote will always thrive (unfortunately). Since the Second World War, the Tory share of the vote has never dropped below 35% apart from in the Tony Blair decade - and that was because he stole all their policies and was more photogenic than all the Tory leaders that opposed him!

The Tory vote will always thrive - in the millions, thousands enough to win an election, I am not at all sure and your statement is light weight and meaningless ?

You missed the point completely Jerry,  if half of disillusioned tory voters, decided to vote labour or for any other party,
then the tory party would clearly be removed from office. People have a way of punishing those that lied or proved to be weak leaders damaging the country and quality of life for its people.

The chart is worth having a look at thanks for posting it.

It reinforces completely the post by Ednoth, Newport, United Kingdom above.

You are correct Jerry “ Since the Second World War, the Tory share of the vote has never dropped below 35% “

This is completely a different situation regarding the EU.
 
This is completely a different  situation where the largest number of people ever recorded  came out to vote in the UK referendum. This is about not a only a political party but a way of life and love of ones country and future.

Seven people sat in the village hall as a democratic elected ( village ) committee they took a vote 4 were for the proposal 3 were against. 
What to do next ?

Re-table the proposition for a month’s time to change the outcome  or accept that the system used is democratic and go forward - no ifs or buts. It is called democracy.
Going back to the chart and the discussion,  the point being that in the last election in 2015 Labour got 30.4% of the total vote and Tories got 36.9 winning 331 seats over labours 232.

If  T.May and her cabinet mess up Brexit,  then unlike Jersey the media and many of the seventeen million referendum voters will look for revenge at the next election.
Even a mere 20% Tory swing will see the economically incompetent  Labour party in power.
I agree that the Conservatives may recover after a long time, but the point is they will be dismissed from meaningful power.

The UK with a Labour left wing marxist Government how would that help little Jersey and its finance industry - never popular with the Corbin crowd.
