I personally voted 'To leave the European Union'. This does not make me a Brexiteer or any other such name that anyone wishes to label me with. It simply means that I put my cross against that choice as opposed to the other choice which was 'Remain a member or the European Union'.
As we all know the majority of voters went with the same choice as mine.
I believe that various members of parliament and many other high level figures that have the ear of the media spun complete fabricated stories during the election campaign, but I also believe that came from those wishing to remain and also those wishing to leave. Frankly it made no difference to the way that I was going to vote. My mind was made up long ago and no amount of bullshit, statistics, tears, burning bras, threats etc would convince me to vote otherwise.
My main point being that the vote took place over two years ago. The time for debate was before the vote and not afterwards and for those that state that many people didn't use their vote and by some strange reason they believe this makes the vote invalid what a crock of crap. If I wanted to remain in the EU or conversely leave the EU then all I had to do was vote. I am not arrogant enough to believe that my vote didn't count or matter.
Levers keeps pressing for answers as to why people like me made my choice to leave. My response is 'what the f**k has that got to do with you?' I have plenty of good enough reasons to vote the way that I did and you can call me all the names you like but as soon as you started doing that you lost the argument anyway.
Had those in power, the so called 'honourable' Members of Parliament, the Gina Millers of this world, Mark Carney and many other self serving idiots accepted the outcome of the 2016 vote once the result was in then our negotiating hand with the EU would have been so much stronger. Instead Jean-Claude and his merry band of dullards laugh at us and rightly so seeing that despite us wishing to hand democracy back to our UK elected representatives all they can do is squabble like children.
I shall keep an eye on this thread but as it stands I have no further motivation to post on it. Unlike some people I have a day job and plenty of other things to keep me occupied (now where did that Kays catalogue go..!)
All I would ask of 'Levers' is to please re-read some of your posts and ask yourself if you might just come across as a tiny bit arrogant. Some of your posts make me wonder if I served in the same Andrew as you; but then if you aspire to people like the picture in your avatar it tells me all I need to know.
Last thing and sorry but again it is aimed at Levers
- when I put the shit emoji against your posts in this thread it is because I think you talk shit & it's a lot quicker than having to justify myself to you. So once you break my post down and respond with all your usual diatribe I apologise in advance if I just respond with another emoji.
Like most Brexiteers on here so far, you don't have to justify anything, even your own intelligence, integrity and mentality. Bravo, you.
