        A frustrating mediocrity is definitely better than one of those disastrously stupid and bumbling characters from comedies that wreak havoc but are somehow supposed to be lovable, but aren’t.

        1. :-Joe

          Ye Boris the bumbling man-child clown is loved by many Brits and in particular many women both British and foreign nationals seem to go weak for his goofy moves.

          I can’t get my head around it… is it because he’s like an overgrown toddler from a Harry Potter fantasy?…

          He definitely appeals to people who appreciate the traditional British sensibilities, whatever that’s supposed to be ?.. Empire, the queen, being posh, inbred-mental dysfunction?… ?…

          :-J

          1. Nigel

            But he seems to embody all the awful sensibilities of the posh rather than the admirable ones, such as they are. Like knowing the correct etiquette when one is fornicating with a pig’s head.

          2. :-Joe

            @Nigel : Haha.. ye, but maybe you’re missing a beat, it must be intentional or at least encouraged in public as it’s all part of his appeal…

            Yes he’s posh etc., the atypical tory who can never by definition break from nature and tradition of his party but he wants to. He cares and deep down he’s just a clumsy fool like everyone else. Look at his madcap antics, aww isn’t he cute?… Look how he performs to entertain people with all the enthusiasm of a dancing bear in a circus.

            The classical true british tory way is to learn to tolerate the worst situations while maintaining a stiff upper lip so that you can avoid having to answer to the classes below and always remain a step above and ahead.

            Bumble the clown is a neo-tory for the psychedelic fascism of the 21st century …

            It’s business as usual, tally-ho, my dear boy..

    Whadda load of OrkShet.
    They’ll regret this.
    On the other hand, here’s looking at you Scotland kid.

    All the Brits in France n Spain n’Italy
    Even the sawker crowd
    Should be made to produce Visas

    Otherwise eff’ em out

    1. Mart

      In that case all the European’s living in Britain should also be made to leave? Seems like a bit of a kneejerk reaction to be honest.

    1. The Real Jane

      I doubt anyone really was. I’d be pretty sure there’s plenty of gowls in the UK who voted out to give the fingers to the immigrants and associated others who are LITERALLY RUINING THEIR LIVES (not literally) in the certainty that it wouldn’t pass.

      Sucks to be them, I guess.

      1. mildred st. meadowlark

        It’s where they go from here that matters I suppose. Dave’s out too, though considering this is his foolish mess no one will miss him much.

        1. The Real Jane

          Well, 350 billion or something like that was wiped off the global economy in seconds. I bet Boris is ready to sort that out with a hilarious Latin quip and a ruffle of his funny hair. Gas man.

    2. MoyestWithExcitement

      I’m going to put on my smug hat and say that I did. It’s the same wave of anger that is carrying Trump. I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, he has a serious shot at winning. Pretty much all the working class areas voted to leave by 60/40 and big turnouts. Traditionally working class turnout is relatively low. Vote leave and Donald Trump are motivating a lot of angry poor people who don’t normally vote. Predictions usually don’t take those people into account.

        1. MoyestWithExcitement

          I’ve read it now. He’s on the same track as myself. I wouldn’t say it’s about entertainment. I’d say it’s about people looking for an alternative to what they’re used to as the status quo, neoliberalism, has been shafting them since the mid 70s. Trump, a billionaire (apparently) has positioned himself as an outsider, as a man of the people. Clinton, an archetypal career politician, is his ideal opponent I’d say.

      1. :-Joe

        Spot on,

        Bumble the man-child clown is taking advantage of this to oust CameronBOT and pull off a coup on the tory’s. It’s worked so far.

        Helmut Northup has been predicting all the results in the US elections correctly since 1995 using statistical modelling and then going back all the way to 1912 to test it further and it’s been 100% accurate.

        According to his system Trump has an 87% – 99% chance of winning.

        gulp…

    I am sure there will be a revote like the Lisbon treaty to ensure the correct result is obtained.

      1. Frilly Keane

        That’s not what Junker says

        They’re out

        If they want in
        They’ll have ta join the queue

        Behind Turkey n’Albainia n’the likes

        1. scottser

          Juncker is full of poo and he knows it. The UK has too much clout to ignore and they won’t be treated like Turkey. Interesting tho that ze German stock exchange took a serious hit today. If the eu isolates the UK too much it’ll be disastrous for French and German industry.

        2. pedeyw

          They’re actually not out till they invoke article 50, also referendums in the UK are not legally binding, they’re just advisery. So there is an outside chance that they could renegotiate for more appealing terms and hold another one, but it is highly unlikely.

          1. MoyestWithExcitement

            The EU just released a statement saying there will be no renegotiation and they expect article 50 to be invoked asap.

          2. ReproBertie

            Article 50 requires approval by the national parliaments of all 28 member states so there’s plenty of spanners waiting to be potentially tossed into the works.

        3. The Real Jane

          Yeah, I heard Junker say that. But that was before a very close vote. It’s not outside the realms of possibilities.

          My additional point is that when the second referendum happened here, that wasn’t just a do it again. There was additional information and concessions on points of interest. I think it’s important to hammer this point home to the electorate here who seem determined to adopt the belligerent know nothing nonsense of the worst of the British tabloids. We have to fight this wilful, stupid stuff or we’re going to end up as divided and anti intellectual as the UK came across these past months.

    1. :-Joe

      Technically the referendum is not officially or strictly recognised as constitutional and is basically just a recommendation to British parliament. The difference being that nobody would risk pulling a Lisbon-Irish u-turn for fear of causing political chaos and damaging their own party. Unlike what happens here all the time i.e. FF/FG and their filthy antics with the economy.

      As usual in politics, there’s always has a little known back door built-in to do whatever they want if it doesn’t satisfy the agenda of the day.

      :-J

      1. pedeyw

        And here we go, the terms of Lisbon were renegotiated after we voted it down.

        “On 12 December 2008 the Taoiseach, Brian Cowen confirmed that a second referendum would be held, after an EU leaders summit agreed to keep 1 Commissioner per member state and to incorporate legally binding guarantees on abortion, taxation and military neutrality in the Croatian Accession Treaty”

        1. The Real Jane

          Yes. I really don’t understand why people persist in ignoring this. I mean, I understand why the euroskeptic UK press do, but why Irish people who voted at the time and were, presumably, awake some of the time, allow what happened to them in their own country to be reframed in the service of what led to this Brexit farce I just cannot comprehend.

        2. :-Joe

          It was modified enough to push it through along with the renewed extra help (i.e. propaganda) of a much more aggressive yes campaign straight after Ireland voted against it.

          I’m pretty sure many people got sick of the obvious sham and just went along with the inevitable. I often wondered if we had of voted no again how long would they take to go at it a third time…

          Whatever way you look at it, it was farcical and a fine example of the E.U. failing to honour democracy before it’s own overall agenda.

          :-J

    2. Bob

      The ironic thing about people continually bringing that up is that the Lisbon Treaty brought in the mechanism for nations leaving the EU.

  4. :-Joe

    I’m 50/ 50 on this one…. Unless of course you want to abandon the whole idea and not bother repairing this broken bureaucratic EU superstate project. ..The Brits being in the EU is better for the world and now makes them and the EU even more subordinate to the US. Why nobody has been talking about this is a bit strange to me?… Anyone for TTIP?…

    CameronBOT’s legacy will be seen and talked about as a failure to manage dissent within his own party and prevent the challenge and growth of a competitor who want to attract conservatives away from the Tory party. Blah, blah, blah etc..

    In reality, this is the fallout from the economic crash and the EU referendum campaign on both sides has been hijacked by a bumbling clown seeking to usurp his party leader and the party mandate to seize power for his own selfish political gain.

    The slim majority voted against a decade and more of political insanity spent rewarding the financial elite with quantitative easing and the greatest transfer of wealth in history to the smallest wealthy minority while expecting them, the majority of average citizens to pay for it through the nose by driving deep austerity year on year without any real serious concern for it’s cruel and unusual punishing effects.

    If you look at the campaign debates and arguments for this referendum nobody could make a strong case either way because nobody was sure what would happen or if it would be good or bad. CameronBOT did not want this referendum to happen at all because nobody was in full control of their own agenda leaving it largely to chance. Xenophobia, racism, bigotry, stupidity, fear and ignorance filled the void.

    All this has a scary similarity to what’s happening in the US. Is this crafty bumbling British clown the Drumpf equivalent and will we see these two floppy golden-haired idiots as leaders in 2017?… As insane as it seems, I wouldn’t bet against it… Beyond the fans of a Biff Tannen way of life there is the same bitter resentment of the established political classes in the US for the exact same reasons.

    On the upside though, CameronBOT has just been decommissioned… Hip Hip HOORAY !!! x 3

    & I’m hearing this could this lead to a united Ireland?…. Hmmm… two O’Neil managers and an extra squad to create the ultimate Irish team that wins the next World Cup?…

    Interesting times….

    #UNITED #RUSSIA2018 #COYBIG !!!

      1. :-Joe

        Ye, but as far as I know, it was a mistake on his part and wasn’t what he wanted to do as it was against the Tory party’s ideal agenda.

        He was pressured into agreeing to do it so he put it on the long finger hoping to avoid it…. or presumably planning on being able to manipulate the situation before the man-child bumble-clown got uppity with him…

        :-J

  5. some old queen

    I think that after the initial shock, Britain or should I say England will do quite well. They are the 5th largest economy in the world after all and 80% of all trade is outside the EU. From their perspective, block EU trading was a restriction. But, it is also the breakup of the UK. Scotland will have a referendum and will rejoin and NI will come under increased pressure as their largest trading partner (by far) is the republic.

    The real big problem now is, will the EU survive? Already half a dozen or more countries are talking about their own referendums (including France) and if they win, the entire EU is gone.

    Never in out lifetime have we witnesses anything like this before. It is the death of the EU.
