Keeping on doing the same thing repeatedly hoping for a different result is a sign of something else though.   I'm all for democracy, but if you re-run the same vote too close together that process be

^Corrrrrong again. I've just come to learn that folk like you aren't worth the time.   You eased yourself in here and have somehow managed to make a forum that was already a shallow version of itself

Boris and his authoritarian Tory government have tried to bypass parliament twice and both times they've been found guilty of abusing their power by the highest court in the land. Thankfully in this c

Just leave at 11pm tonight.  Who gives a flying {'f' it was funny in Father Ted 'eck'} that the extension is valid under international law because if we leave, who precisely is going to do us for breaking international law?  Besides, the SI extending it under UK law might well be illegal, because Gina Miller's Court action set a precedent that parliament has to be consulted first (or words to that effect).

 

11pm.  29 March 2019.  Just get the hell off the gravy train monster.

That SI was laid before parliament and passed by the house on the 27th March.

AFTER the PM had already agreed and signed up to an extension; ergo, making it illegal.  The dates were not those previously approved of by the House and it hadn't even got to the Lords.

Can’t make up my mind whether to laugh or scream. For me as a voter the process was clear and democratic.

 

Concerning Brexit, we voted as a union. The decision was clear, the UK, which we are are part of voted to leave. Despite voting remain I can’t understand why the will of the people, that these clowns in Westminster are there to represent, hasn’t been carried through.

 

Concerning Scottish Independence, the Scottish people voted to remain part of the union, yet despite this the clowns in the Scottish parliament continue to ignore the will of the people.

 

The only thing that seem to be clear is the Clowns are running the asylum and totally ignoring democracy and the will of the people.

 

Bring on Shetland independence and let’s get clear of the lot of them.

But, that's the whole point !  The UK is a union of equals and, we ALL had a vote.  

I think that you're right, the U.K is a union of equals. Unfortunately, Westminster inflicts just what it chooses to upon us - regardless what the majority want. How equal can you get.

 

Probably illegal to show a majority north of England. Probably illegal to show a majority north of Westminster, and it's probably illegal to show a majority anywhere but Westminster.

....Bring on Shetland independence and let’s get clear of the lot of them....

Who would be president?

 

 

ME!! :twisted:

 

Okay, now that I've said that, I've by default made myself ineligible to stand....... So, next suggestion...... ;-)

 

Just as long as no politicians or public 'officials' are ineligible to apply, I'd consider pretty much anyone else.

> Who would be president?
 

I'm reminded how at college I become the official student representative, when I discovered by accident there was going to be an election for the position the next day.

I asked who was running for the position and was told no one..

So I got a form, filled it in and put myself down.

Then the next day I voted for myself.

The results came in, one vote was cast, and I'd won !

But, what if one of the islands of Shetland disagrees with voted in policies and wants its own Independence !

I'm reminded of:

https://www.politico.eu/article/northern-exposure-brexit-reveals-shetland-split/

> 81 percent of voters on Whalsay and in nearby
> South Unst supported leaving the EU, one of the
> highest pro-Brexit votes in the U.K.

Does that mean we'll have to build a wall across Unst like they did in years ago in Fetlar ?
