    You will be wasting your time attempting to make me claim that my country has defensable standards.

    I do not identify with the place that I happen to have been born at, let alone with its current government or political orientation.

    Just because you hate your own country, do not expect others to hate theirs.

    Unlike you, I believe in my Nation, in my country and its enormous potentialities because I see how creative and productive we are.
    And these qualities are hindered by a technocratic EU and of a envious Germany....Germany focuses on quantity but lacks quality....so they use the EU to cut our wings.

    I do not hate my country, or any other. Countries are not nearly real enough to deserve so much attention.

    It is the people that I care about, and the UK have no way of avoiding a lot of sorrow from Brexit even as an idea.

    The majority that, from all indications, no longer exists even if you consider only the people who bothered to vote?

    If you say so.

    Myself, I think that there is a lot more fantasy in there than it is advisable, but I suppose that it is your risk to take.

    I just happen to be the kind of person who has a keen sense of how interconnected we all are.

    It probably does not hurt that I am, for all intents and purposes, a bit of a mongrel person with hardly any blood from the actual natives of the only place that I have to live at.

    If I had to try and convince myself that there is anything significant with the land, myself, or most of all the link between the two, I would have a formidably hard time at that.

    Fortunately, I feel no desire whatsoever to make such an attempt.

    Appeals to nationalism are very unlikely to ever convince me. If anything, they indispose me.

    Any nationalism.

    It's still quite close in the polls,it's always surprised me how even in a general election maybe only 40% bother to vote,well maybe we will get to see soon how many people still want out.

    Great Britain did not get where it is today by being timid.

    All it needs is strong leadership.

    Boris has a lot to live up to when you consider the likes of Churchill and Thatcher but so far, he is proving to be more like those two than his predecessor was.

    A drunkard Juncker who speaks of leaders of other planets tells how serious and credible this EU is.
    I pray the Lord more and more British people realize it.

    Brexiteers believe the same but we do not want to be ruled by the EU.

    The Remoaners do not like that government leaflet because they do not like facts.



    The leaflet clearly stated that the referendum was a once in a generation decision. This is your decision. The government will implement what you decide.

    We voted to leave.

    Based on lies.
    Now that we have the facts, we need an informed referendum.

    If, as you believe "It is the will of the people" - you will surely win a comfortable majority in the rerun referendum. Yes?
