    Voted remain, respect the vote and can fully understand the leave side of the argument. The idea there was a right answer is very snobbish IMO.

    I had to laugh at Guy Verhofstadt's quote in the Guardian today:

    There is a right answer, the one that is informed and objective. There's also respecting a vote and then there is respecting the fact that it wasn't simply a winner take all, we live in a ******* country of millions, you can't just ignore millions of people.

    Gove was your preferred choice as leader? Do you too have a love of 1950's rose tinted nostalgia?

    I'd love to hear you reasoning for Boris being more competent than either of his predecessors when all evidence is to the contrary, he will like be the man who puts JRM in a cabinet seat which should be enough for anyone to be concerned.

    My thoughts entirely if she is the best candidate then the others must be awful what ether gender or ethnicity they are.

    We ignore millions of people every time we hold an election. Yes this was a monumental decision but more remainers didn't bother to turn out and vote unfortunately and we are where we are. I still do not see how you can have an objective answer outside of your own mind, unless you also believe there are objective answers of how to vote in elections.

    No we don't, normally in five years time we ask them for their opinion again.

    Either Savid Javid or JRM would be the best choices for chancellor

    MP's are duty bound to represent all their constituents without bias.

    Well we shouldn't have selected an idiot to run the country then should we? Hate to break it to you but he got a pasting in the press across the EU today, even from countries who "were" friendly with the UK.

    Which country should he be bothered about? The French and Germans don't like us because they're going to be the only countries who can actually fund the EU after we leave, the rest are socialist 2nd world countries living on debt or are tiny. I dont expect any of them to like Boris or the UK, he and us aren't followers
