    Voters or fraudsters successfully turned away?

    Considering that 99.27% of voters were able to vote I have little sympathy for anyone trying to commit fraud or too thick to vote properly.

    How do you know when they didn't bring ID (including free ID) like over 99% of other people managed to?

    No humility either about your prior source being out by a factor of over 1000%?

    It's makes no sense to me, what has been set in motion here today
    It makes no sense anymore, was it too little, too late? Or too much too fast?

    Several (or all) branches might also be assholes independently of one another.

    Except they're not acting independently of each other.

    The Senate branch of assholes refused to permit a non-asshole (Gorsuch) to be appointed to fill the vacancy until another asshole could take over the Presidential branch. Then asshole President and asshole Senate combined to stuff the SCOTUS to be full of like minded assholes.

    Interesting to see who made Brexit possible. Hint: Russia.

    Didn't read past the first sentence of that article which is an outright lie.

    Banks' campaign Leave.EU spent £700k
    Vote Leave spent £7 million.

    But Banks bankrolled the campaign to leave? No, I don't think so.

    But it's in the New York Times so it must be fake news.
    Greece shows us that there is a kind of politician worse than the ones that break their election promises; the ones that keep their election promises.

    No need to worry. Trump is nothing if reliable and a great supporter of trade.

    It is a little worrying to see this departure from decades of US foreign policy wrt the EU. I have no doubt the politicians in question are very tempted however. They'll always put their personal gain before their country.

    It looks like lying to parliament is the hottest new thing in the UK.

    Breaking pairs is as old as time but this is just outright dumb and terrible politics. Can I repeat my assertion that May is a dreadful PM and party leader and needs to be replaced ASAP?

    Stop trying to shift blame. The people responsible for this are the people who actually did it and are now lying about what they did.

    The people responsible are the Chief Whip and MP concerned. Plus the Party Leader who set the policies and has the choice to fire the Whip or keep him on. Buck stops at the top though it wouldn't surprise me to see the Chief Whip thrown under the bus and lose his job over this while she keeps hers.

    These people are just as despicable as most of their Tory peers.

    Nah, a loon in the past who isn't even an MP and will be unemployed within 12 months.

    I know you're attracted to loons and oddballs in the same way Lewk is attracted to people who invent rapes but really this is scraping the barrel.

    And MEP who gets a headline in a newspaper, it's not a random dude who writes his own blog.

    And an MEP who loses his seat in March next year is the "present and future of UK conservatism" how precisely?

    Everyone knew who and what he was, and yet he was elected by British voters. Do you imagine those voters will magically cease to exist in a years' time? Do you imagine this rhetoric of treason will magically have been silenced by then? UKIP and its rhetoric successfully hijacked the Conservatives and their voters, not because they're exceptionally cunning but because they recognized what was happening to a large segment of the British public.

    Bullshit. He was elected due to the dubious, ridiculous electoral system Europe has that is going away. Please show me any evidence at all that even a tiny minority of voters let alone everyone knew who he was.
