Why does the next election matter! You've already got the party you want in power and will for the forseable future. The working classes who realise that collective bargaining is the only way to stop a return to Victorian times, will carry on until your one-party state legislates them out of existence altogether. Then you'll be happy. Until that day... All power to their elbow.

Define great? Our nation was "great" during the Victorian times --- but that great didn't do much for the working classes or the young, the poor, the sick and the elderly?

The working class bit does not apply to me.....................


Not working and no class ?

So we're a bit along the road now. From what you are seeing, who do you think is going to benefit from whatever version of Brexit we end up with? And who will suffer most?


The sort of democratic choice we see in a referendum is of course a single issue affair whereas in an election we are looking at who best looks after our and our country's interest over a possible 5 years. So, supporters of various political parties will have voted with one accord either for or against Brexit. Who ulimately benefits from Brexit, no one can, with any certaincy, safely say at this moment in time.


If you genuinely believe the vote swung on party-political loyalties then I'd be better discussing it with my dog (and I wouldn't bore him with that).

And anyway, I asked who, given the information we currently have, you thought would benefit (and who would suffer) most. A simple opinion.
No one will suffer, we will all be better off, EU has been holding us back.................

Nigel Farage will one day be regarded as one of our Greatest Britons and will eventually be held in the same regard as Brunel.

I like to think of him as a Janus character.
