I had to google swp thought it might be safe working practices.

Calling out someone for politicising things on a politics thread is a strange thing to get angry about.

Can one of the Gloucester Brexit supporters (59% of the city) take us through how the deal benefits the working family compared to being in the EU? Open question, genuinely interested.

I read somewhere Douglas Carswell, ex UKIP MP and leader of Leave campaign, has fled to the US rather than stay to enjoy the Brexit dividend. I'm assuming this is lies otherwise it would make him a massive hyocrite.

So, genuine question for Brexit supporters. as well as the unanswered one above about what the benefits are for the working families, how do you feel about Brexit leaders leaving the country and living somewhere else whilst the rest of us are living under the Brexit conditions? Is he not a hypocrite?

I’ve been waiting for 4 years to hear someone honestly explain the benefits of brexit to the uk ... all I’ve heard is meaningless crap about “sovereignty” and reclaiming uk waters ... how is that going then ? A lot of effort for an increase of 8% after 5 years ...... the fishermen must have been dancing in the streets ;)

anyway ...

Theoretically any government had the sovereignty to approve the vaccine when the UK did. In practice, breaking ranks was discouraged but we didn't need Brexit to do that.

Had we stayed in maybe the EU vaccination program would have been approved more to our timelines and more lives saved.

Who knows ...
