    And, Id repeat, the problem with London hospital is down to the imllions of migrants using the NHS.

    The Moon Landing Conspiracy is often portrayed as a binary choice between two mutually exclusive events: either the USA spent billions of dollars to walk on the moon or they just got Kubrick to fake it all in a Hollywood studio.
    I think the most reasonable theory is that both these narratives are true. The USA did in fact land a man on the moon but they also had the optics embellished by Kubrick back on planet Earth. Think about it: why would they spend billions on such an endeavour only for a crappy 1960s camera to go kaput and lose all that lovely propaganda? The Ruskies would deny the US had ever been. Not going to happen. So the Yanks paid a few extra million to derisk.

    Same here. Until 2015 or so I was something of a mild eurosceptic but shrugged and accepted it as I just viewed the EU as a sort of tedious but ultimately harmless bureaucracy that had a few good things going for it such as freedom of movement, EHIC cards etc.
    What changed my mind was the treatment of Greece in their financial crisis; basically turning them into a vassal state of Germany. Then the migrant crisis, which showed not just that the EU cannot act in a unified way to deal with an external threat (in this case an unarmed civil invasion) but will simply do the bidding of Germany, and worse, it will attack those member states (ie, Hungary) who uphold EU law on border control!

    Brexit is about more than just UK leaving the EU now, its about real democracy for workers vs establishment/globalist/corporate/banking/media hegemony irrespective of the actual good or bad outcomes of leaving the EU. At this point it could just as well be a decision about whether we continue to drive on the left or change to the right, its about who has the final say in a  big decision us or "them", its about whether democracy is actually real or just going through the motions. 
    TPTB know this which is why they are deploying the full arsenal of tools against us including a never ending onslaught of FUD and propaganda with a constant parade of "experts" and notable previous political personalities telling us what a bad idea it is.
    I've got american friends on my FB telling me that we have to do it because if we don't then the "globalist" have won a key battle. It looks like the result of brexit is probably going to set the world geopolitical direction for the next couple of decades.

    We are one of the least racist countries on earth. This is absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with racism and everything to do with trying to destroy the nation state.

    Common Purpose and Open Society need to be shut down under the Treason Act if we still have one. If not I would do it under the Terrorism Act.

    The key issue here is how quickly and summarily the Tilbrook case was dismissed (and not even covered by "journalists") despite there appearing to be serious and valid legal points needing to be addressed.  Compare to all the vexatious cases surrounding Brexit - the vexatious Electoral Commission cases, the vexatious Gina Miller cases, the vexatious Parliamentary procedure cases - all of which have been taken very seriously by the Judiciary and amplified by the corrupt MSM.
    We no longer have an independent judiciary, if we ever did. They can join the press, the police force, the NHS, councils. All of them owe their allegiance to Common Purpose and Open Society. They are traitors to the people of the UK. Act accordingly.

    That seems to be a new phenomenon. I guess it just shows how craven they are and how lacking in an ideological position. 
    They believe in nothing but their own self betterment.

    Are you making reference to the 13% that his party polled in the 2009 EU elections, enough to get him into the position of MEP. From there no one got a vote on him becoming "Leader of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats" and then no one got a vote on him becoming "European Parliament's representative on matters relating to Brexit".  That 13%?

    India: biggest democracy in the world.
    OK. Also complete and utter disease ridden shithole where the vast majority of the population can't access basic sanitation and will literally shit in the street. At war with their neighbours over a disputed territory, rife with nepotism and a completely class based system, safe haven for rapists and a total absence of women's rights.
    Is this what Guy sees as the future for Europe?

    It is common knowledge that Germany under Adolf Hitler (1933-1945) is referred to as the Third Reich, it is however less well known what the First Reich and Second Reich were. The word Reich is hard to translate to English, but realm or empire are probably the best translations.

    The First Reich was the Holy Roman Empire (the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, Heiliges Römisches Reich deutscher Nation, not the ancient Roman Empire), 800 - 1806. Charlemagne (Charles the Great) was crowned emperor by Pope Leo III in Rome on Christmas Day 800, this is normally seen as the founding of the Empire, but sometimes the year of 962 is used, that was when Otto I (Otto the Great) was crowned.
    The Empire existed almost in name only following the Peace of Westphalia at the end of the Thirty Years' War in 1648, but was not formally dissolved until 6 August 1806 when Emperor Francis II (Franz II) abdicated.

    The Second Reich was the Hohenzollern Germany, from the unification of Germany following the Franco-Prussian War (1870 - 1871) and crowning of Wilhelm I as German Emperor at the Palace of Versailles, with Otto von Bismarck as the first Reichskanzler, to the abdication of Wilhelm II in 1919 following the German defeat in the First World War.

    billfunk reacted to XswampyX in Brexit Betrayal thread - Part 5   
    That's my point exactly.
    I mean what's the remedy for a rogue PM who has gone off on one and is going against what the majority of parliament wants?
    A. Holding a vote of no confidence and then having an election so "the people" can have their say.
    or
    B. Making the political decision of the PM illegal and then taking this to court and ultimately putting him in prison (without taking course A. first).
    The remoaners don't have a leg to stand on.
