Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
I had suggested way before the referendum that it is likely that in the event of a leave victory, that the UK and EU could renegotiate and that there could be a second referendum. That suggestion was dismissed as risible. I am sure that the same sentiment voiced by a moderator would be treated with more respect.Obie wrote:There may be a scenario, where the UK can get a proposal following the negotiation, put that before the People and then decide whether they wish to adopt it or not.
And guess what, the proposal of the specific petition (of having a turnout threshold and margins of victory) was discussed during the passage of the European Union Referendum Bill (which set out the rules for the referendum). The Commons Library published a Briefing Paper about the details of the bill-see Page 26 for information on setting thresholds. The Lords discussed this point as well. If the two Houses were aware of it and did not put it in, the only conclusion I can reach is that it was intentionally left out.avjones wrote:The time to set rules about what turnout there should be, and what percentage of the vote is required, etc, is BEFORE the vote.
I did not put it on sticky but I support whoever placed it on topic.Amber wrote:Why is this tripe a sticky thread?
I haven't/can't make the thread as sticky. I have just created this thread to a) share the news b) get the views of the forum members. Not sure if it is against the rules of this forumAmber wrote:Why is this tripe a sticky thread?
Sorry. I did that. It seems newsworthy and relevant, as leave voters were regretting their vote after having been mislead.Amber wrote:Why is this tripe a sticky thread?
It was a good call. I probably would have put it if i had first seen it. No need to apologise.
Huh? How do you possibly conclude that the 3 million signatures are from people who voted leave?Obie wrote: The level of buyers remorse reaching 3 million is mind blowing
At least 16,141,241!Amber wrote:How is this mind blowing when over 13 million are disappointed with the outcome?
I can't see what good that will do and I could even see it making things worse if more Bremain types are somehow elected back in. No. The only ones who need to be running things now are the Brexiters. They wanted out. So get us out and put the UK, whatever is left of it, in a position to deal with the consequences as best as we can. They are atleast partially responsible for things getting to this point (The EU shares a lot of the blame as well IMO). That responsibility didn't just end with that referendum result. Time to step up.vinny wrote:General election prior to invoking Article 50?
I think that would be a very good idea.vinny wrote:General election prior to invoking Article 50?
Unless UK called a snap poll, I don't think this will be a good thing for the Market or the European Union.vinny wrote:General election prior to invoking Article 50?
