Had some relatives from England visit us here in Norway the summer after the election. The polite term for how they felt about the results was disappointed, but the accurate term is mad as f**k. My Grandmas nephew (I don't know the English term) angrily complained that had the election been a mere two weeks later, the result would have been the opposite. He belived the election took place to fast for people to learn all the information and rammifications, much less reflect on them and form an accurate opinion. I could see that beeng the case.

15% huh
xX_SHADOW_MEGAGAMING_Xx - 3 dager siden
@**nothing** Yes 15% is low, but you cannot conclude that the chance of something happening was not low because it happened. The comment doesn't say "an unlikely thing happened". It says "that thing was not unlikely because it happened".
**nothing** - 3 dager siden
@xX_SHADOW_MEGAGAMING_XxThe comment still makes sense. 15 percent is pretty low odds for an event that just recently actually occurred. We must be reading the comment differently to each other.
xX_SHADOW_MEGAGAMING_Xx - 3 dager siden
@**nothing** This is not some deeper meaning. This is what the joke is based on. If you don't believe it is impossible the comment doesn't make any sense.
**nothing** - 3 dager siden
@xX_SHADOW_MEGAGAMING_Xx Yeah ok but again, the word impossible was never used. The comment above (which is clearly sarcasm) doeant have any deeper meaning behind it. Leave that job to English teachers.
xX_SHADOW_MEGAGAMING_Xx - 3 dager siden
@**nothing** Yes nobody said it, but it was implied. "15% huh" suggests that the probability was not 15%. Here are the logical steps you need to take to reach that conclusion: 1. If the chance is 15% maximum brexit cannot happen. 2. Maximum brexit did happen. Therefore 3. The chance was not 15%. If you don't believe the first statement is true you cannot use the fact that maximum brexit did happen to deduce that the chance was not 15%.

Oh how wrong you were!! 😂 You made the same mistake many in history have made (which is ironic,) you underestimated the unrelenting will of the British people. I am disgusted by how you complained about what our United Kingdom wanted and voted for, you complain about the way we vote for it and yet you have the audacity to make a career out of my country’s glorious history. 🇬🇧 What’s more with you being an avid supporter of MMP it comes as no shock to me that you have issues with democracy and the result of the MAJORITY which is where I remind you in September 2014 Scotland voted to remain in the UK by a majority, so suggesting they’re going to leave the UK as a result of Brexit is probably the most stupid thing you’ve ever said and there has been a few. On behalf of the almost 13 million people who voted for Brexit via the Conservatives in the 2019 election - if our views on national sovereignty and free trade are intolerable to you, leave our fantastic country and go somewhere else because you won’t ever be welcomed by the majority of proud Britons when you attempt to ridicule our democracy and decisions.

It's been over 4 years. 30% odds it is.
Herr Glotzenschnitzengruber
I told you so.
Over a month ago I commented that Johnson will need to jam up the ports ahead of the Brexit deadline Jan 1st to cover up the Brexit chaos, I didn't know how but I assured you he would. He announced this new virus strain just in time, even though his government and several others had known about this new mutation since OCTOBER and maybe even September as reported somewhere that I can't remember or find again. Now I discover that the Americans are telling us that we in the UK haven't even investigated it thoroughly because it's not quite so serious.
By the way, the true figure is 40,000 trucks as of midday Wednesday, not 900 as reported or even 4,000 as reported somewhere else.
Why are they continuing with this suicide even though they know the people of this little damp island are going begin to starve by the spring. Just watch. I'll put money on it that they have already printed the ration books in Kazakhstan where they can keep it quiet.
Herr Glotzenschnitzengruber
@Olav Bakke That's OK then, I'll let all the newly unemployed know that Brexit will improve their diet, Olav
Olav Bakke
Olav Bakke - 21 dag siden
@Herr Glotzenschnitzengruber That won't happen. Tariffs aren't high enough to not make it extremely profitable to ship food to the UK if there were to be concerns about shortages. No one will starve. The only places people starve today are under major sanctions (which the UK won't be) and in conflict zones (which happens to correlate with places under sanctions).
Herr Glotzenschnitzengruber
@Olav Bakke Olav, It won't be dangerous to get food, it will be difficult to get food. Fewer trucks will bring many products from the EU, If fewer trucks arrive, only canned goods and dry goods can arrive by container. Fresh high quality produce that we have become used to will be in short supply. Only the wealthy and powerful will get that. The working classes will just eat newspaper

If you think “no it couldn’t” then go check out the fixed term parliaments act and how after it was used once they decided to just temporarily overrule it because they felt like it.

"still nothing has changed"? he gave 30% to something that has now been impossible for two and a half years. May did in fact push the metaphorical button of Article 50 on 29 March 2017. Actually, he also gave 55% to something that has been impossible for at least 6 months: the UK will not stay in the EEA. His 15% is now guaranteed, although his wording is confusing since what he called "Maximum Brexit" included either WTO rules or a formal trade deal, and the goal posts have moved such that those feel like polar opposites.

@Jensen their "totally different approach to the pandemic" has been almost identical to England, Wales and Northern Ireland... where do you get your news? And believe me, the UK government is not about to grant another independence referendum. You can't run a country properly when various parts of it are constantly threatening to secede. Maybe we should borrow the Canadian approach and set the hurdle rate at 66%.

@ScourgeOfGodUK Polls are suggesting Scottish independence has gotten even more popular over the last couple months, a lot less scots supported brexit and they’ve had a totally different approach to the pandemic. If Scotland was ever going to leave, this seems like the time.
