Remain Planning Big Tactical Vote

Mass tactical voting campaign planned to win second referendum on Brexit


https://www.theguardian.com/politics...-tactical-vote


Not surprising. Morons just won't quit.

One assumes there will be equal and opposite tactical voting for Tories and BrExit Party

In order to do that we need a GE before 31st October.

Re: Remain Planning Big Tactical Vote

It would seem people's disgust at leaving the EU is more important to them than the country going to war. Look at the efforts we are seeing played out at trying to keep the UK in the EU, court cases, deals being voted against, elections being voted against, laws being rushed through to stop the UK leaving the EU. Now look back when Tony Blair took the country to war, did we see the same level of effort being mounted to prevent the country going to war, no we didn't.

People seem OK with going to war, allowing loved ones to be killed but you mess with a persons financial wealth (leaving the EU will affect many peoples financial situation) and OMG!! they will move heaven and earth to stop you.

There were a lot of people that protested against military action in Iraq , Afghanistan, Libya and Syria

Apart from just one occasion Johnson voted in favour of military action every time as did most of the longer serving parliamentarians. The irony is that Corbyn opposed action every time.

It sounds like you must be a big fan of his

Hi

I have no idea at all how this will pan out.

The only sure thing is that politics will never be the same again.

Thatís the real problem

People voting for something without understanding all of the issues and those advocating it having no forward plan

Beg to differ, at the start of the process, there were many complex issues to consider, some seemingly insurmountable, within less than a month, it became one issue, only ONE issue has been debated round and round and round, maybe there was only one issue at the start.
