Well, on the latest BBC SYB on this subject the highest-rated comments are all "Leave now, no deal, Boris for PM"...
I know I ain't common 'cause I got class I ain't never used yet.
When I used to see big groups of "northerners"for events in London they always seemed to be having a good time, with negligible beer lariness. They weren't all crying into beer about "fookin gay multiculturalism" or whatever.Oblomov wrote: ↑Tue Apr 09, 2019 9:58 amI'd say it ought to be an ironic humiliation for the Brexiteers that companies relocate to "unremarkable" places like the low counties ("name me a famous Belgian!" used to be a favourite of pub bores some time ago) rather than stick around in ING-ER-LUND but I guess that to someone in Doncaster, London might as well be Amsterdam.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-47879777The result of a nationwide referendum has been overturned for the first time in modern Switzerland's history.
The poll, held in February 2016, asked the country's voters whether married couples and co-habiting partners should pay the same tax.
Voters rejected the proposal, with 50.8% against and 49.2% in favour.
But the supreme court has now voided the result on the grounds that voters were not given full information, and the vote must be re-run.
The information provided to the electorate was "incomplete" and therefore "violated the freedom of the vote", the court ruled.
Switzerland's direct democracy system frequently allows citizens to take part in decision-making.
During the referendum campaign, the Swiss government told voters just 80,000 of married couples were paying more tax than couples living together.
The true figure was almost half a million, the government later said.
Don't try and dress up this humiliation as a fucking bilateral negotiation.
