Well not the whole country, just a very small proportion than can afford to fly overseas at Christmas time, a few skiers and sun worshippers got a little inconvenienced. 

Did anyone actual die as a direct consequence.

Be fair, some people were just trying to get back to see family, etc.

Wasn't impressed that the press named as shamed two local suspects that have been totally eliminated from the suspect list. It did lead to an amusingPiers Morgan backtrack though!

I believe in democracy, even if some people using an STFC former manager's name do not. The referendum for the UK to leave the EU was clearly won by a majority of 1,269,501.

Let's start counting one of those people per second as we imagine they walk by us. That would take over two weeks, i.e. on New Year's Day we would still be counting those people. Let's bear that in mind as we continue to debate this into 2019.

Some people are bad losers; get over it!

Seven days on and I am still counting. That's a hell of log of people still walking by, and still another week's worth to go.

When you pull your first cracker today, when you set off for Northampton tomorrow, when Ardiles first tastes his partner's haggis, when you are singing Auld Lang Syne...EVERY second will one more person who voted leave than remain will walk by.

Her Majesty has called for unity. RESPECT the result of the referendum. Christmas will not be cancelled in 2019 as a result of leaving the European Union.

Well, that was a really diverse choir featured heavily during the Queen's Speech. All ma!e & 95% white.

However, well done to Her Majesty for bigging up the Commonwealth and the opportunities it possesses.

I noticed that choir and its a sad the lack of diversity.
Other countries in Africa and the middle east would have a mixed choir of all skin colours and peoples.
Coudenhove-Kalergi would be horrified at that display.

Tick tock. I'm still counting that majority. One per second ever since 18th December, and still over a day to go.

How dare you. How DARE you ignore that overwhelming result. We leave the EU on 29th March 2019. End of.

Your life must be pretty fucking sad if you had the time to come on here on Christmas Day, under no provocation and post your ridiculous game of tickety-tockety.

I actually feel sorry for you, forget the commercialism of Christmas. I had fuck all cash to even engage in the "consumer event of the year" but was lucky enough and happy enough to spend all of that time with the people I love (and thankfully love me back, even if they think I'm annoying).

What's wrong Coombe up, did you not get that Nintendo Switch you so badly wanted? Life is perspective and even if you "hate" Christmas Day or the time that comes with it, it doesn't mean you need to bow down to commercialism. Enjoy the time with your friends or family or whomever you love. One day, they will be gone, you will be gone, I will be gone. It is the only guarantee, one which has been experienced at this very time of year by none other than swindonmaniac.

Whatever the response, Christmastide is not a time to be posting crap on forums. I genuinely hope you are ok and that this time of year isn't a tough one for you? As I always say to anyone on here (even those that don't like me), I'm always available for a private chat/vent/listen. I may go on myself but my cause is always genuine. The same offer applies to yourself.

Happy New Year.

Happy New Year.

And to you mate....

I think a bit of a lull in the political debate on here was correct during the main Festive period, but can get into full swing after tomorrow's football, especially as March will come soon enough with all the anticipated Brexit fun. 

However I did have an early snigger, that HMG have taken out sizeable contracts with ferry operators from Denmark and France, to try and get essential supplies around the port bottlenecks in the event of no deal.  Further a UK company which has no boats, no experience of running ferries, and a port that needs dredging before being able to take boats of the necessary draught has got a nice contract.

Which is quite ironic really. The Remain campaign called a 3-day pause to campaigning in the days following Jo Cox's death, which Leave agreed to then broke their promise. Leave actually upped their Facebook campaigning during that period - which was probably key to the result. Despicable.
