Please do not tempt me to think any further about "good riddance".


Well why not, it is what you seem to think we are saying.

Please provide link to the Petition.

Thanks

The link was in Eric's first post.

The petition was started on the 27th May and as the 30 days have elapsed and it only received 7,979 signatures out of the necessary 100,000, it has be closed and archived.

Well as you see the UK as full of xenophobic simpletons.

And the rest of the EU is perfect, you should be glad to get rid of us.

(Just don't look up xenophobia or racism for other EU countries.)

"xenophobic simpletons"

There you are:

Nice of you to suggest that a few "xenophobic simpletons" represent 17,410,742 UK voters.

Whilst is is inevitable that there would have been some racist bigots in the leave camp, suggesting that there are 17.4 million in the UK is just a bit extreme.

Workers of the world, unite!

To bring the union idea into the 21th century perhaps the slogan should be changed to:
Employees of the world, unite!
Workers sounds to me like blue collar and there are not so many of them now in the western world.

Please note that in the UK, the big service and retail outlets do not have employees or staff they have "colleagues"

Never mind, peanut in a gallery, there is an explanation:

Formally endorsing Brexit on June 13, The Sun, a mainstay of the xenophobic press, declared: “If we stay, Britain will be engulfed in a few short years by this relentlessly expanding German-dominated federal state.”

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/22/opinion/who-is-to-blame-for-brexits-appeal-british-newspapers.html

It is just a simpleton bubble of xenophobia, UKIP "mistakes" and conspiracy theories. And now they have damaged and divided their own nation irretrievably.

You are not of course suggesting that everyone who voted to leave are "xenophobic simpletons" are you.

My companion for the last 17 years has finally found peace.

Spitty my cat has had various problems over the last 8 months, she has has several teeth out and many examinations.

Finally she was diagnosed just 6 weeks ago with an inoperable tumour in her left eye.

The vet suggested having her put to sleep then, but it just didn't feel right, so I have been looking after her and giving her pain meds and she was doing well until this week when the pain was obviously too much and she tried to eat but gave up.

I have just returned from the vet after making the most difficult decision of my life

RIP Spitty free from pain at last.

Hopefully I will be able to get some good advice from Mike as was mentioned previously,

Mike is currently on what you guys would probably call a "road trip" across your fair land.

Whilst he does check in you may have to wait a little longer than usual.

And unless he carries all those command lines in his head.... ;-)

We had a good storm here in south London last night, rain, almost continuous lightning but only distant rumbles of thunder.

Rain has stopped at the moment

Went to vote about 10.30 AM and whilst there wasn't a "queue" there were definitely more people than at the recent London Mayor election.

Moderator's...

I apologize for responding in the same manner as betreger, Wiggo and other personal attackers.

I do understand your concerns, and stated I would not respond in kind.

My bad.


Personally when I read a thread and see the same few posters going round the same subject over and over again without really saying anything my eyes tend to glaze over

Tomorrow the Britons will choose their destiny. In or out. Hang together or disintegrate.


Do you mean that if we leave the UK will "disintegrate" or that the EU will.

If the latter then I do feel that might overall just be a good thing.

I have tried to clean up the thread a little.

Please remember, your countries laws and standards are not everyone's. Just because someone lives in a country that has different laws and they defend them does not make them sub human.

Constructive discussion does not involve insulting other posters or their beliefs or their country on either side of an argument.

Please can we continue with a discussion, not name calling.
Thank you.

Did you get a confirmation e-mail for your donation?

If yes was that e-mail address the same one you use to sign in here.

If you used a different e-mail address the the star will not show here, logically.
