and the people have never really taken Farage too seriously

I do like your little jest.

17.4 million voted for brexit(A resounding majority) 72,2% turnout. As compared with 73.3 in 1992 and 64% in the 1975 Referendum.
29 MEPs stood on a Brexit ticket outnumbering all others.(29/72 = 40%

YouGov is a Tory organisation, Tory-founded, thoroughly Tory, thoroughly capitalistic. Now that doesn't mean that their polls are dishonestly conducted, etc. But there's a degree of dishonesty in that name. "Gov" doesn't half sound official, doesn't it? Just in case anyone thought that their data emanates from some official government setup. No such luck. Know thine enemy!

"YouGov is a Tory organisation,"
If the people's opinion counted a fiddlers fart to any of these clowns they would be asked to re-confirm their decision now that it has been exposed as the train-wreck it obviously is.
All we get from the politicians is "it's the peoples's choice and all we get here is a blanket of silence from the slightly more thoughtful Brexiteers, otherwise, the outpourings from Westminster's favourite self-confessed neo-Nazi blogger.
That's not what the people voted for

Good to see the level of hysteria rising among the remainiacs as the clock continues to run down.
The latest cunning plan from those unable to accept the majority vote is to attempt to arrange a coup and usurp the government's role.
Steptoe senior, the most toxic political figure in the land, is having none of that though. Even the church is getting involved. The game plan seems to be squabble, squabble, toil and trouble. I suspect Carey has just ignited a fuse under the Church of England that he will learn to rue.
The two sides of the divide are quite simple to understand:
Leave won the vote and all who support democracy accept that, no matter what side of the divide they inhabit.
A hardcore of remainiacs just cannot accept the will of the majority carries the day, whether it comprises a majority of one, a thousand, a million, ten million. That is the whole basis of democracy. Do they seriously think they can thwart the will of the majority. Sow the wind and reap the whirlwind. The remainiacs had better be aware that the level of rage that will surface should they frustrate Brexit will be of a level never seen in their lifetimes, Remainiacs are ready to risk all to ensure that their minority view prevails.

not often I link to the mail but the article below spells out the situation very clearly. Contrary to the impression gained on Mudcat, Brexiteers won the referendum clearly and unequivocally. Endless bleating from the vociferous on here and their continual attempts to silence all opposition change the facts not one iota. Very clearly the remainiacs are attempting to subvert Democracy, no other explanation is possible.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-7400941/DOMINIC-SANDBROOK-Corbyn-rabble-alliance-dont-understand-democracy.html

ps continually questioning the validity of yougov polls is rather a wasted effort. Yougove adheres to the same rules as all the other major polling companies. If you attempted to understand my links you would know this. Continually attacking their polls is asinine. Howsabout arguing Tuesday is wednesday? a far more fruitful endeavour!

Corbyn has had the right scared stitless since his appearance on the scene - to misquote Billy Connolly, if you want to confuse a rightist, present him with a new idea based on principle and fairness.
Interesting to see YouGov's survey suggesting that the Tories would see their country and their party betrayed rather than lose Brexit, goes unchallenged - I suppose we take that as assent then

Number 10 has confirmed to Guido that Her Majesty the Queen has already formally approved the Government’s order for a new Queen’s Speech and prorogation of Parliament from the 11th September. Making the letter that dozey Corbyn wrote to Her Majesty a couple of hours ago requesting a meeting before she did so, irrelevant…

The Queen signed the prorogation order after a meeting with Privy Councillors Jacob Rees-Mogg, Baroness Evans, and Mark Spencer. It remains to be seen whether Best for Britain follow through on their absurd threat to the Queen for doing so…

Almost. He has asked for it to be suspended from 10 September until 14th October, and the Queen has agreed. In practice, she had no alternative. There will now follow days of legal challenges and frenetic activity in Parliament to see if anything can be done before 10th.

Whatever you think about the pros and cons of Brexit, this sets a very dangerous precedent whereby any PM could suspend Parliament for weeks - and why not months if it suited - pretty much whenever they found it convenient.

You carefully overlook the fact the Major prorogued Parliament for six weeks in order to avoid the cash for questions embarrassment.
As the mirror succinctly says:
He’s setting the date for a Queen’s Speech and State Opening of Parliament (which happen together on the same day).

This effectively reboots Parliament, setting off a new ‘session’ and shutting down the old one.

This process called "proroguing" usually happens every year - but it doesn’t have to, and Theresa May chose not to have a Queen’s Speech in 2018-19, so she’d have more time to push Brexit plans through.
That means we've now had the longest gap between Queen's Speeches for more than 400 years.
To trigger a Queen's Speech Parliament has to have a short break, which usually lasts a few days. This time Boris has made it longer.
Quite a normal constitutional process. Democracyt rules and remainiacs are spitting nails. They are talking about a coup and all sorts of other nonsense. One day they will have to accept the majority won the referendum and their choice was to leave the EU either with or without a deal.

Will it really come as any surprise when the people take democracy into their own hands on the basis that a lying **** like Johnson can just overrule elected parliamentary representatives and dictate to 68 million people. If that happens and I am on a jury where the defendants mete out their own version of justice I would have no problem voting not guilty (as is my right) on the grounds that their victims were only getting what they deserve, and proportionately the damage the victims did to society is much greater.

In the end we are facing division that has been created by one side only by even contemplating anything so divisive. Division what, in the end, was as a result of a vague which was one one reassurances by its main protagonists would mean a future relationship along the lines of EEA, followed by red lines which automatically precluded this, as well as a rising tide of hatred directed towards European Nationals living in the UK. What we have now is a far right government forcing through their agenda. I do not advocate or even relish division escalating into extreme violence, but Johnson has now lit the blue touch paper, and I fear nothing can be done to stop this happening. At lease May had the good sense when she was Home Secretary to forbid the use of Johnson's water cannons - about the onlt decent thing she ever did.

Yesterday felt like the best day for democracy for years. All the opposition parties agreed that they would use parliamentary process, the thing which brexiteers supposedly wanted to rescue from those unelected (a lie, of course) Brussels bureaucrats to defeat not brexit but the thing that no-one in this country voted for, a no-deal crashout.

Today, the kneejerk reaction to that by a millionaire UNELECTED toff, supported by the seven-times UNELECTED Brexit Party leader and with the grubby fingerprints of an UNELECTED adviser in Downing Street all over the scheme, is to abandon parliamentary democracy and take away all control from the people we did elect. A bloody dark day, unless you love cheats and liars.

The reaction of the UK Left Remainers is, as usual, overblown. The State Opening Of Parliament has taken place annually with very few exceptions throughout and since the twentieth century. Last year was one of those exceptions. To not do it again this year would be completely unprecedented, especially as a new Prime Minister will always want to set up his or her own, new, political agenda. That requires a new Queens speech and that requires prorogation. There was no time to do it before the summer holidays, after that is three weeks of Party Conferences. After that is the obvious time to do it.

In the US The constitution declares that the sovereignty lies with the people and the constitution is the embodiment and solemn expression of the will of the people. A shame so many parliamentarians do not share the same view.

I subvert the will of the majority every chance I get if I think said majority is wrong. I live in the southern US and am an atheist, so it isn't just the orange guy's will I try to subvert. Not that he was elected by a majority, but his followers outnumber me here...

Well done, Stanron, for swallowing hook, line and sinker the disingenuous and dishonest claptrap of the Johnson regime. Prorogation can be for one day. The Queen's Speech can follow the next day. But prorogation is lasting nearly FIVE WEEKS. It's blatantly obvious to all bar the brain-dead that this move is a kneejerk reaction to the unity shown by all opposition parties yesterday, who declared that they wanted to take the thoroughly democratic, legislative path towards trying to prevent A NO-DEAL BREXIT. Not brexit, Stanron: A NO-DEAL BREXIT. That which not one person in this country thought they were voting for, not even you if you're honest. If you have the Tory numbers in the House, Stanron, then what are you afraid of? If you haven't got the Tory numbers, you know why? Because some of your side will defect. Not our side, Stanron, yours. Without Tories, we haven't got the numbers. Without defectors from you Tories, we can't do it. It's what we call Parliamentary democracy, Stanron, that thing that you lot are supposedly trying to rescue from the clutches of the EU. But it's there and useful only when it suits you, it seems. Open your eyes, old boy. You and your side are the ones in all this suffering from the severest form of democratic deficit. We want our ELECTED representatives to have their say. You want your UNELECTED leader to stop them. Ironic, really, when you've been rattling on for three years about how undemocratic the EU is, eh?

Well done, Steve Shaw, for swallowing hook, line and sinker the disingenuous and dishonest claptrap of the Labour party line.

It's blatantly obvious to all bar the brain-dead that this move is a kneejerk reaction to the attempt at unity shown by all opposition parties yesterday, who failed to take a thoroughly undemocratic, legislative path towards trying to prevent brexit. Not A NO-DEAL BREXIT, Steve. They want to prevent any kind of Brexit.

I don't claim to be a mind reader and don't know why other people voted as they did. I know I voted to leave the EU and ALL it's institutions.

If you have the betrayal numbers in the House, Steve, then what are you afraid of? If you haven't got the betrayal numbers, you know why? Because some of your side will defect. Not just our side, Steve, yours too. The whole two or three year mess is a result of neither side having the numbers.

Parliamentary democracy, Steve, has already passed the laws that say we leave the EU after Halloween, with or without an agreement. With your attempts to prevent this happening, you and your side are the ones who are suffering from the severest form of democratic deficit. We want the decisions of our ELECTED representatives to be implemented. You want your UNELECTED coalition to stop them. Ironic, really, when you've been rattling on for three years about how democratic the EU is, eh?

You don't read my posts. Long before Corbyn accepted that he couldn't run an emergency government, I posted in this thread that he couldn't do it, that his star had fallen. I've also been a long-time critic of the democratic deficit in the EU, the upshot of what John Seymour called gigantism. But that deficit pales beside the constant attempts by May to sidestep Parliament and by Johnson's attempt to prorogue Parliament. As a side note, I'd suggest you revisit the comments by Gove and Javid of just a few weeks ago, condemning out of hand the very idea of proroguing. Hypocrisy and lying personified. Don't force me to quote. It's all out there for your delectation.

Finally, how easy and lazy of you to cod-paraphrase my post instead of giving us your considered thoughts. Very defensive, very brainless, utterly witless, though, admittedly, quick and devoid of the need for effort. I put my original thoughts in my posts, Stanron, whatever you think of them. One fine day we might just get some of yours. Must try harder, Stanron.
