Just a load of bluster on here now. Meaningless noise. Nothing's going to happen is it?

Pretty annoying really.

Westside.

I agree with that. Although i wonder who the fuck do these people think they are,at least they are being open about what they aim to do.

Comma.
Thanks again but sorry,you used a lot of words but said very little.

Just suppose 3 million kids were eligible to vote tomorrow then fast forward a year and another batch of kids turn 18 and therefore can vote. You see where this is going? And dont forget,we were told its a once in a generation vote.

And as (our) Johnsin says, there has been no talk of a current electorate in regards to the origonal vote that took us into the EEC.

It's very doubtful the Lib Dems would get a majority with 40% of the vote.

Concur.

But nothing anti democratic, about clearly setting your stall out in a GE manifesto.

Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
Interesting comma. All of this;

“There is the passage of time, the churn of the electorate and the changing of, and voters being more informed of, the circumstances. If you combine those things and consider that the previous vote was reasonably close it can become clear that down the line from the original vote the overall view could change to the other option.”

Could be applied to the referendum in 1975. So why weren’t you a) campaigning for a check referendum before Cameron got one and then b) agreeing that the referendum was a good thing for all of the reasons you’ve kindly articulated?

More likely to get a churn on that side of the vote.

Onebilly, for me what makes a result become stale, and as such open to doubt, consists of three main things. There is the passage of time, the churn of the electorate and the changing of, and voters being more informed of, the circumstances. If you combine those things and consider that the previous vote was reasonably close it can become clear that down the line from the original vote the overall view could change to the other option.

As far as GEs are concerned the fixed term Parliaments should last five years and for me that is at the extreme end of what the electorate should put up with.What seems to be happening though is notwithstanding the Cameron Fixed Term Act PMs are choosing to still be opportunistic in going to the country and they do it for party political and not national interests.

Rls tells us that the most important thing about democracy is that the losers accept the result and I agree with him. Going on from that I also think that results have to be acted upon in a timely fashion. This is patently not what has happened wrt the referendum and because of this for me it opens up the likelyhood that the present electorate could well vote a different result in next time.

C&P from a Bloomberg article today on Cameron’s book ...

The portion of Stephan Kornelius’s authorized
biography of Merkel, published in 2013, the year Cameron called
for the referendum, makes stunning reading today.
Merkel, according to Kornelius, was fond of Cameron and
generally an Anglophile; she didn’t resent Cameron’s desire for
the U.K. to win back some of the sovereignty it had given up to
the EU. On the other hand, she disliked the idea of
renegotiating EU treaties, and was even more opposed to the idea
of a referendum not linked to any such renegotiation.
“Her warning to Cameron was this: only if treaties had to
be renegotiated could there be a vote for them,” Kornelius
wrote. “And a vote was likely to turn out badly – of that Merkel
was certain.”

Seems like even she fancied the Germans would vote Out if it was put to them after a treaty renegotiation, which is why they were opposed to open Treaties up to be amended. They presumably had to be re-confirmed by the people.

Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
I disagree Westside because it is possible to get a party into government with 40% of the popular vote, which is around 25% of the electorate on average modern turn outs.

Thus a party governing with a majority of MPs via the FPP system has a mandate within the accepted terms of our constitution but it is far from a mandate from the people in comparison referendum.

Using that argument comma, only 37.5% of the electorate voted to leave.

You may not like FPP, but AV was rejected massively.

Any government carrying out its manifesto pledges, has a mandate to do so.

Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
Comma.

You've been banging this 'current electorate' drum for some time now so could you please inform us,in your own opinion,how much time has to pass before a electorate stops being current? Same question could apply to referenda and elctions,when do the results become stale?.

Hope you surprise me by answering as in the past remainers on here (not all) when faced with a question they dont like either

Abuse the person asking the question.

Ignore the question

Change the subject.

Thanks in advance.
