    You're not really. You left when you were three didn't you, and you've never lived in the UK as an adult have you?

    Northern Ireland is not a factor. It is an obstacle.

    How is Boris Doing So Far?

    Personally, I would have gone for iron Man.

    It's not even about changing your mind. Brexit as it stands is not achievable. We voted for something they knew we wouldn't be able to implement. It's not changing your mind. It's facing up to the reality of the situation. Even now, Boris Johnson has nothing, because there is no solution. Well, no Tory solution, as they won't throw the dup under the bus. There is labour solution as they don't give a toss about the dup.
  7. Because you are posting lots of positive posts about him. Strange choice for a hero, but it takes all sorts. Do you have an idi amin poster on your wall? I guess someone has to be into black dictators.

    Of course not. They just want to control their borders, but not to stop immigrants, no, we want heaps of immigrants, we just want to be able to choose them, or rather the government will choose them, and pay very little attention to what the people actually want, but we will have taken back control, sort of.

    Can you take them apart and flat pack them? What do you mean by dressers? Most modern Australian homes have built in storage.

    I won't give you more examples because Marisa gave you an excellent one, and more examples aren't going to help. It's not that you don't understand. You guys got the decision you wanted, and even if the majority shifted so you are now in the minority, you are going to desperately hold onto that decision regardless. But don't pretend that it is protecting democracy, or it would be undemocratic to vote again. This is about winning. It's not about democracy. You guys want to win. I get that. But if democracy takes that win away from you, you should respect that.

    Denmark, Ireland a couple of times, Greece. But did you not read the section on direct democracy versus representative democracy? Direct democracy would seem to be more 'democratic' but it does not allow for changes in the world after the event, and so when the results are actually implemented, they may no longer represent the views of the people. Maybe you need to read it again.
