He also said that in the event of a narrow loss he would continue campaigning for another referendum.
Yes, and he'd be perfectly entitled to do so, just as those who campaign against leaving are doing.

That's the whole point of democracy, you can still campaign for what you believe in even if you lost a vote, and you can change your mind about things.

Quite right. La Belle Sturgeon is a great example.

I think if We get a lib lab government, west berks should vigorously campaign for a rerun of the general election. After all I wouldn't have voted for them. Democracy in action, Huzzah!!

If the popular vote would give a different result you'd have some justification for a rerun - but our political system means the rerun would probably have the same result. We had the chance to change it but . . .

A Corbyn and Farron alliance. Unlike the liberal luvvies who said they would leave the Country on brexit and then didn't I would if that happened. And also most of the people that pay the tax bill.... Hows Bob Geldof, Lilly Allen, Ewan Mcreggor etc getting on with all the refugees they have taken in to the homes they live in? Oh wait..... laugh.gif Do as I say... Not what I do.

Not Democratic enough. I want to be able to protest if I don't get what I want. Take to the streets, spread fear and destruction just like the luvvies do.

I hate the EDL. Scum. Interesting that no one is protesting that Israeli nationals (the innocent ones just like the innocent Muslims) are banned from countless Muslim Countries. Thats Ok though. Its not "PC" to hug an Israeli. Laughable.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeli_passport

A link for anyone that is interested in facts. 16 countries.... Im no fan of Israel but blaming the general population for the action of the leaders..... Oh wait its OK if you are Saudi.👍 Interesting that Saudi are also responsible for the majority of US terrorist deaths but are not on the "list". Makes you wonder.....

It's mainly the luvvies. Not too liberal are they? Not when it doesn't go their way.

Two wrongs don't make right; however, it is all religious and racial bigotry.
