    Bunch of tree-hugging lefty liberals, all of them. :p

    Meanwhile Ministers are demonstrating how they are fully on top of the whole Brexit thing:
    The WTO was founded in 1995. :duh:

    So we've been members of the EU [1992] longer than the WTO [1995]...

    https://www.theguardian.com/politic...-high-court-challenge-access-home-office-data

    But hey, I'm sure the online system for everyone to check if someone is registered or not will be online on 1st Nov with 100% correct data and zero downtime...

    I've found every Eurosceptic I've ever spoken too doesn't understand the EU, something that's really important, as the article suggests, if you want to get the most out of any negotiations, talks, deals, or whatever, that's probably something Sun Tzu wrote about, something about know your enemy or something.

    The problem is if they got to know their 'enemy' they'd probably quiet like them so ignorance truly is bliss.

    I don't know, none of the Gammons I've encountered seemed very blissful to me. In fact they looked kind of red and stressed out, like they were angry all the time.

    It is impossible to make a man understand something when his salary relies on him not understanding.

    Perhaps they should call Cameron. I hear he's got a way with pigs.

    So a pilot for demanding proof of ID to vote has found that, "younger voters and those from black and minority ethnic backgrounds being less likely to know about the requirements."

    So that's the Gammon's plan if they get forced into a new referrendum, keep the voters out of the voting station.

    I'm guessing the venn diagram of those that think this is a wonderful idea, and those that lost their ****ing minds when the Blar govt [and the Major govt before it] wanted to introduce ID cards, is a perfect circle.

    ...well it worked the first time, what with denying both EU citizens here and British Citizens in the EU an opportunity to vote on something that very much affects them.

    If there was widespread voter fraud I'd understand a need for it but there's not, is there?

    Also if they want to address issues with the democratic system why not start with how easy it is for foreign organisations to influence elections and how political campaigning isn't held to the same standard as other advertising.
