    BREXIT - merged threads

    Fair enough Rewulf, I agree that's does not sound like a person who is lazy and not very bright.

    BREXIT - merged threads

    To quote a fishing mate of mine "This Brexit thing is great for democracy. The original result of the referendum got rid of Cameron and brought in a PM that no one voted for. She then called a General Election and barely got voted for and had to shack up with a load of loons to form a non effective government. Now she might get ousted and we get yet another PM no one voted for. Yay Brexit" Tight Lines Aled David Davies. Friends of my family know him (I don't) and they say the same. Cheers Aled

    All my family members who voted leave will all be voting Labour at the next election irrespective of where we are in relation to Brexit. How many other similar Leave voters are there out there? (I've no idea by the way just asking) Cheers Aled

    A friend of mine who voted remain would agree with you 12gauge. So like you he suggested a referendum on Hard brexit or Remain, with nothing in between. It would sort it out one way or another I suppose? Cheers Aled

    I'm asking a question here: Given the choice of remaining in the EU or the deal that T May has put in place which would you prefer? My Uncle Phillip doesn't care about the economic side, provided "them immigrants can't come here and take our jobs"....so he's not bothered about anything else. Cheers Aled

    As I've mentioned before my Mam's side of the family are SW Valleys working class people, they all voted leave, when the next election comes round they will be voting Labour, always have probably always will. The Brexit situation will be irrelevant to who they vote for. Cheers Aled

    14 million in poverty

    Rewulf said: "Like has been said, theres no easy answers, but education would certainly help a lot of people who struggle" I used to work with a group of single parents who lived in housing association accommodation, nearly all (at the time) were on benefits, when I asked the group what they wanted I noticed that more than anything else they wanted knowledge: No surprises what they wanted, advice on how to feed their children better, how to manage their money, contraception, could they work a few hours and still claim benefits, how could they improve their literacy and help their children, one which I found quite sad was "were they allowed to join the local library" etc. So perhaps there is a type of poverty out there which does not involve only money, maybe there is a "poverty of knowledge" in our communities, which addressing may well make a difference?

    There's probably a middle ground somewhere but it appears that nobody in the World knows where to find it! Cheers Aled

    That's sad news. Like others I enjoyed his TV programmes. His Avon rods were great for low water sea trout worm fishing. Tight Lines & RIP John. Aled
