He has said it though many times, he's been quite clear that he won't go against the vote. 


I voted leave, what are you on about?  You're the one that said you'd vote for lib Dems, they've said many times if they get in power they will go against the vote. It doesn't mean I agree with everything that's going on with Brexit. As for TPD, that will never change. There may be a few ministers talking about it, but I guarantee it won't go anywhere. With everything that's going on it would be atleast 4 years before it even gets talked about, and by then they probably would have forgotten about it.

Anyway that's my political talk done, I didn't expect people to shoot me down after a political speech that was so good... 


So why couldn't he say that when asked 5 times in a row?

Sorry, I couldn't remember if you voted leave or remain dude. And provide me a link to where they said that? All that I've read is them saying they'll be trying to keep Britian in the single market, and I think that is a good idea. And you already know why I'd be voting for them, because they are 1 of 2 parties who say they won't cut spending on defence and military. The other is UKIP, and I won't vote for them because I dislike their borderline racist ways.

But you don't know that about TPD. It's regulations made up by a board that included heads of some of Europes biggest pharmaceutical companies, who only stood to gain from the regs. Once Brexit has happened, Parlaiment will go through the EU laws and regulations we currently have and decide what to do with them. There's a good chance that without people who stand to gain financially involved that the TPD regs will be changed.

As Dave said, Jeremy Corbyn's attitude towards Brexit is really unsettling. Like it or not, Brexit is without a doubt the number 1 issue facing the country right now, and all he's said about it so far is that they need a 'good deal' from it. He hasn't spoken about it any more than that, and as you could see from the video, he couldn't answer her question at all. He's said nothing about the deficit (because he'd wreck our economy with higher taxes and more debt, as Labour historically do), and he's said nothing about controlling immigration, again, a huge concern right now. No way am I voting for him.

While I wholeheartedly disagree with Tim Farron's vision of holding a 2nd referendum on Brexit (he has made this clear, see link below), at least the dude has made his point clear. I just think it's funny that the leader of the so called Liberal Democrats is unwilling to accept the result of a democratic referendum... hmmmm. But whatever, if that's what the people decide then so be it.

Theresa May has also made it very clear with her policy towards Brexit, and I know people take the piss out of her for saying 'strong and stable' all the time, but that is EXACTLY what she needs to do. It's memorable and clear. At the moment, in my view, May is absolutely in the strongest position.

Corbyn is actually starting to sway me towards him. His EU policy is sensible and I agree with renationalising railways etc, I just don't like him as a person or leader and Dianne Abbott will be worse as home secretary than May and Rudd.

The Lib Dems single market/FMOP policy is also very persuading though. Over to you Farron!

@RevolvingPrawn Didn't you vote leave because of the E cig regulations? Because staying in the single market would keep them.

Seriously?

If that's true then my only options are UKIP or not voting at all. I'd probably not vote at all rather than UKIP I think.

I'm fairly sure it would. Being part of the single market means we follow all of the same trading rules and keep fmop like we have now. The whole point of the single market means we all have the same rules.

What it would allow is e cig manufacturers to produce and trade the big bottles within the UK, provided the government actually repeal the rule once we've left. I guess whether we get them in the UK or not depends on if the companies producing them think it is worthwhile just for one country and I can't answer that.

Theresa May was in South Shields today (kinda half way between Sunderland and Newcastle, also where Sir Frank Williams was born!). She visited a factory where outside of the front door were loads of anti May banners. They took her in the back door so that she could give her speech without meeting the real electorate.

Coward.

Indeed, sadly it's going to happen, if Conservatives don't win it would be a bigger shock than Trump becoming president. The fact that May was on ITV news talking about why fox hunting should be legal when she pretends to be the leader of "the working class" party says it all... 

The only hope Tories get taken out is if the other parties get enough votes to form a Coalition, I just can't see Labour getting enough votes. My main worry is what Conservatives are doing and will do to disabled people, but there's plenty of other stuff to worry about.  :(

I work with disabled people so I worry too, but Brexit is my biggest worry for two reasons. One is that I have made loads of friends from EU countries and some are genuinely worried about whether or not they'll actually be able to finish their degrees.

The other is that as an engineer, the EU provides loads of funding for engineering projects and without the ability to move freely Britain will not only lose new investment, but British engineers will miss out on working on projects abroad.

Haha I've had that same experience bud. Someone I used to hang out with (dodgy bloke) was on a similar programme, he got pulled over for no insurance and they also found a load of drugs in the boot of his car :joy:
