Otherwise, we will be condemned to going around in circles.

What I know about EU legislation is it is legislation that we in Britain do not require from a dictatorial institution

 

We have our own democratically elected "buffoons" in Westminster and Holyrood  who are supposed to rule this country .

 

I have lived with the changes for the past 40 odd years ,and in the work place had to conform to them so I know .

 

It is a bit like driving a car I do not know how to build it but I do know how to drive it,and can judge whether it is good or bad.

With respect, it doesn't seem that you do know about EU legislation. You can't provide any examples. You just repeatedly say you don't like the EU without any justification.

Let's have examples of the changes in your workplace due to EU regulations that you don't like then.

For me, da decision in how I voted came down tae balancing the pros and cons of the European Regional Development Fund and da Common Fisheries Policy.

 

I think Shetland has done very weel fae da ERDF with funding for piers, roads and da lik, and there doesna seem to be ony plans fae Westminster or Hollyrood to replace dat post-Brexit.

 

I dunna think Shetland has done as well as it could have fae da CFP, but dat said there's no guarantee we'll do any better if we leave da EU. Fishing is a fraction of UK economy and rights could easily be traded away under whatever agreements follow Brexit.

So, a 432 to 202 defeat for May's proposal. That's a hefty defeat, probably one of the worst for any government in decades!

It was interesting to see both Hard Brexit and Remain supporters celebrating the defeat together yesterday, with both thinking their preferred option is now more likely.

 

Hopefully, now that the government has survived today's vote of no-confidence, May will use her diplomacy skills and charisma (!) to pull both sides of parliament together - although I can't see it....
