Peadophiles - Daily Mail reported 71% support Brexit.

Some people don't realise that you don't have to tell the guy from Gallup everything about yourself when they phone up to do the poll.

Are you trying to call me a peadophile? I’ve screenshotted this, btw.,

Expect it to be take down before the morning.


Does your mind twist everything you read?

Everyone of your posts completely misses the point and this one is no different.

Just what I thought also, no way he is calling him that. It’s clearly Just a general comment as to why would you admit that in a poll!

I call and raise on my previous name call......


What exactly is your point?

I expect nearly all people who voted Brexit have a home, two feet, a nose etc. Are you saying 17million people are that bad?

Please take your findings to the newspaper you get this drivel from.

Hi Aaron

Andrew is not implying anything about you personally. He was observing that it was strange that when contacted by a pollster that people would identify as a paedophile such that a statistic such as that which you stated could be produced by a polling company

On a broader point please can you stop conflating that because a small subset of Brexit supporters support far right groups, and an even smaller subset on a global basis commit crimes, that this disqualifies anyone who supports Brexit from having that view?

It's really not welcome and we regard it as unnecessary. It adds nothing to the tone of debate on here and really doesn't need repeating ad nauseam.

If you really have to keep posting in this manner, at least produce corroboration and sources for statistics and observations to at least give them credence.

Finally, why add "Boris Johnson - voted Brexit" to your rogues list? Whether a fan or not, its hardly appropriate to suggest he is in the same category as the EDL, racists, murderers and paedophiles is it?

UK food industry has asked Government to waive or suspend aspects of competition law to allow for it to coordinate food supply in the event of a disruptive No Deal Brexit at the end of October. Would be illegal, they say, at present.

Leading food suppliers and retailers have repeatedly asked the Government for clarity on this matter - and there are precedents for the waiving or changing of competition law during fuel, oil and financial crises.

One top retailer told the BBC: “at the extreme people like me and people from Government will have to decide where lorries go to keep food supply chain going. And in that scenario we’d have to work with competitors, and the Government would have to suspend competition laws”

More on Monday's EU27 Brexit meeting. Diplomats were told that the PM's sherpa David Frost said the new govt wasn't bound by commitments made during the May era, such as the need for a "legally operable" Irish border solution.

He's reported to have said this was a "conceptual mistake" made by the previous government. This explains the "we've gone back three years" comments from the EU's negotiators.

--

there are contrasting viewpoints on this.

One says - the agreement was made. That negotiations were closed. both parties waiting for signature. UK couldn't pass it. If one then changes their mind (May to Johnson, different view) it may not be re-opened

The other says - Agreement involves ratification by the House of Commons and the European Parliament.. that didn’t happen, so there is no formal agreement.

Watch ⁦Grieve tell ⁦c 4 news⁩ the Queen should sack ⁦Johnson⁩ if he defies a vote of no confidence. We live in interesting times.

(the Queen sacked the Aussie PM in 1975, which i need to go and look at why!)

I’d think this is the correct view.  No contract is enforceable without signatures from all parties.
