140 years ago today 100 heroic British soldiers at Rorkes Drift fought off attacks from 1000s of Zulus ... I reckon a lot of those real heroes would be utterly ashamed of many of our whinging , sulky , sad wet drips who've brought shame on themselves over losing the Brexit vote and more ... You really wouldn't want any remoaner backing you up in a sticky situation

I think you’ve just added to the myths about the soldiers at Rorke’s drift. I wish you had told me that one before I visited the place last year. I could have added it to our guide’s list of the ridiculous.

Hmm. Well we cant ask them as they are all dead, what about we ask some world war two war heroes what they think or are you going to class them as "sulky, sad wet drips that would be no good in a fight"?

I disagree.
The very freedoms of thought and speech, freedoms from want, fear and cold that we all enjoy now are exactly what so many people died for over the last 100 years and I suspect that many would be content to see the UK free from the sort of despotic rule that so many so called 'democratic' states are forced live under.
I may not agree with much of what remoaners say but to insult their integrity like that is quite wrong.

Welcome to the world of " whinging , sulky , sad wet drips " Rich.

But if you have to pray in aid the dead to gain attention for a tawdry point, and so belittle their deaths, you don't really have such a noble point, do you? Nasty!

I have not seen enough on here to form an opinion Antony and so I have no reason to doubt the integrity of anyone - remoaner or brexiteer.
I know a few remoaners in real life and I have no reason to doubt their sincerity or integrity just beacuse we disagree on some Brexit issues and I think you are being unfairly critical

Unless you know different, Antony, Brexiters are alive and kicking and can defend themselves. That is the difference you seem to have overlooked. Besides which, I believe Barry answered that allegation, didn't he?

We all say things that on reflection we might have worded differently and I personally would never carry a grudge or form an opinion based on a non specific comment on a forum, and I have had a few run ins over the years!
Yes, I have also formed opinions of people, as have they of me, but that does not call into question their trustworthyness,integrity or sincerity.

Yeah I did, i may have worded it badly at the time but my main gripe is at the orchestrators of Brexit not Mrs Muggins of acacia avenue who voted leave because she didnt like posh boy David Cameron or believed stuff written on a big red bus. If I offended anyone on here I apologise, it was not meant as a personal attack.

Not much to see at Rorkes Drift anyway ... that's because it was a British victory.

Now the Voortrekker Monument and Museum is a different story, they are quite impressive.

Let it go Antony, life's too short to carry a grudge, and look back at some of your own postings and ask yourself whether you actually said what you meant, although you may have meant it or thought so at the time?

Did I? Are you sure? Defended what actually? I cant even remember which thread it was but if I was having a go at Brexiteers for inciting hate crimes that could possibly end in violence or death I am sure it was aimed at the feckers who got us into this mess in the first place who will indeed have blood on their hands if thats the end result. You have to remember it gets a bit Panto on here and I think we all like to exaggerate it a bit and add a bit of drama. I though it was all part of the fun. Maybe its just me and Im a bit odd I dunno but I find coming on here every day therapeutic and a great laugh.

"worded it badly at the time" ... You defended it after i picked you up on it ... You meant every word fella


Did I? Are you sure? Defended what actually? I cant even remember which thread it was but if I was having a go at Brexiteers for inciting hate crimes that could possibly end in violence or death I am sure it was aimed at the feckers who got us into this mess in the first place who will indeed have blood on their hands if thats the end result. You have to remember it gets a bit Panto on here and I think we all like to exaggerate it a bit and add a bit of drama. I though it was all part of the fun. Maybe its just me and Im a bit odd I dunno but I find coming on here every day therapeutic and a great laugh.



So the ones with "blood on their hands" are all Brexit voters I presume ???


Eh? I just said I dont really blame Mrs Muggins, more those who orchestrated Brexit.


So your saying Mrs Muggins hasn't got the intelligence to see through the supposed guff the orchestrators belched out ???


Well lets put it this way the majority of the population knew (and probably still dont know) feck all about the EU and our membership in 2016 so were led by what the media and our politicians told them or what was written on the side of a bus. 2nd most searched for term in the UK on Google the day after the referendum was "what is the EU?".

Came down to who had the best campaign and "Vote Leave" were better than "Remain" and also the fact that there has been twenty years of drip fed nonsense about our membership of the EU from the anti EU press. Im surprised the vote was so close to be honest. The Brexit orchestrators who as we know have their own selfish motives for ripping the UK out of the EU played a blinder really.

Whats rubbish about what I said? Are you saying that the people really understood the implications of Brexit? Im not sure most of them understand it now. Its impossible to understand all the implications even if you keep up with it every day like most of us on here have. You just have to listen to people being interviewed on the telly, they havent got a clue. Of course they were led by those that were promoting it. It came down to gut feeling and whether they believed the guff that was being spouted at them. I think its still the case now.

Those of us who make regular contributions to the Brexit debate on this section of the forum have a keen interest and have informed views despite our disagreements. As for the general population at large, I doubt that they are as committed to researching the pros and cons of Brexit as we are. I remain respectful of all the views expressed on here, regardless of whether they are for or against Brexit.

Well ill find out tomorrow night. Im off to a meeting (Somewhere in a North East Brexit heartland town where I intend to find out why the people there want to leave the EU when that region will be the worst hit in any Brexit scenario. I presume most of them will be my age and older who voted to Leave there and must have witnessed the last two major recessions in the region. I can remember the first one in the early 80s where ironically it was so bad local workers went off to places like Germany to work which was booming. They made a very good comedy drama about it! Be interesting to see what they have to say.

Dont belittle folk constantly and question their intelligence regarding Brexit ... We've had 2 years of you telling us how thick leave voters are ... Credit most voters with knowing enough to make an informed decision , some will know more and some less than others but as with all decisions and choices in life Barry you do as much homework as you feel necessary band your comfortable with to make a decision ... When I am out and about I dont talk Brexit till someone says something to me and I must admit when it has been discussed I have never gone away thinking you aint got a clue what your on about so personally I dont know where these thick types are... Actually my youngest daughter probably is the person I know who knows the least about Brexit and the EU but she has absolute zero interest in it and I dont know if she even voted ... She has a life
