Seems a bit pointless to me. If the large supermarkets have their wits about them, they'll already be stocking certain foods . . . in order to sell them at inflated prices when they announce to the public that they don't have much of it.

It's all too easy eh

The food warehouses are almost full ahead of Brexit as there won't be much free storage around for that now.

As to the parliamentarians, I wish a pox upon them, particularly Labour for being totally unhelpful to the nation in their own political interest.

This is where it gets dangerous and stupid. It's not a game, they weren't losers. Vote leave won on half truths/lies. It's not undemocratic to want a second vote based on what we know now.

Carry on in your make believe world, I don't care.

What I do know is that the majority of leave voters already knew what they were voting for before any campaign began. I'd been waiting since 1975 to vote leave again.

As I said before, you speak for yourself and yourself alone. You may have not took any notice in the campaign but others did. It's quite rude suggesting I live in a make believe world simply because I said having a second referendum isn't undemocratic.

It was a two horse race and they came in last, if it was a horse you had backed it's name would probably be deluded dan.

S long as you’re OK, that’s what’s important.

I love it when people stockpile food - it will save me having to go without if the food shortages hit...

So you are only willing to contend that 8.7 million leave voters knew what they were voting for, the remaining minority of ~8.6 million may not have?

A startling admission.

Not all older people are "less altruistic", aka "more selfish", and I know many of my age group that are angry/passionate about matters affecting this country; perhaps you are conditioned/influenced by those you mix/socialise with. [SEPH]: I could have used a better word than altruistic. But the last part of your sentence is gratuitous.

That's ridiculous.

Vote Leave won. The half truths of the Leave campaign were easily offset by the Project Fear noise of the Remain campaign. Leave voters obviously took Project Fear into account.

Remainers want to usurp democracy to overturn democracy. Plus why on earth Remainers want to continue living in the realms of Juncker, Merkel and Macron (who has threatened us with perpetual Backstop if we don't surrender our fishing waters to France) is beyond me and most reasonable people. You seem to want to acquiesce to that threat and remain in the EU.

Jeez.

You know full well that your assertion is valueless. Pip was saying that he's waited 43 years to vote Leave again, and that others are like minded.

Stop playing around just to attack a Leaver's sincere remarks.

It's not ridiculous at all though is it. Even if you take into account what vote remain were saying, it's not undemocratic to want a second referendum based on what we know now. It could be said the first referendum shouldn't have took place until we know what we know now.
