    Best thing I can come up with is: Be seen.

    As long as there are serious, determined remainers out there arguing their case, pointing out the shortcomings of the plans for "managed Brexit" or whatever the euphemism of the day is the job of lying the whole thing home is harder for BoJo. And if you can do it in numbers there is a faint hope that the clown will falter.

    What is that you think we can do atm?
    Not much, you are British, you just don't have it in you. If this happened in France or maybe in Greece, the entire country would be in flames by now.

    Nah, go for it! I mean I am not exactly happy about violent protests that mostly destroy storefronts either. But at least it makes it clear when people are pissed.

    And hey, our politicians in Greece actually ignored the referendum when it was clear it wasn't going to work.

    At least they show a reaction. I'd rather take honest temperament from a Greek (and boy, do they have one) than fake politeness any day of the week. See, I can go and have an drink with the Greek afterwards. I couldn't go and have a drink with JRM without punching his face in if you paid me a million Euros.

    Yeesh. It's looking increasingly dodgy; they already rejected over 400 votes for being likely fraudulent.
    A certain amount of ballots being rejected for mismatches in signatures or information is to be expected, so far it seems less like anything especially nefarious happened and more that they're going through everything with a fine-toothed comb so as to make sure that any claims to the contrary are without grounds. When you have a very polarized group of people and high emotional investment in a very close election, it's for the best to be absolutely certain of the results.

    IDD with either of you... just saying it's a little difficult to protest violently when, atm, we're stuck in this awful navel-gazing limbo.
    I mean if you are looking for things to protest, when you had the confirmatory votes, you had a massive number of abstentions. That's something actionable to protest.
    Ofc people will say that this is a representative democracy and we show our protest by voting. And I say that it is up to the people if they want elections a bit sooner, not just up to politicians.

    The idiot who threw a milkshake over Farage has been ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work and to pay £350 in compensation to Farage.

    I wonder what Vincent Vega would make of a three hundred and fifty quid shake?

    And in other Farage related news the Brexit Party has been asked to check the legality of all past donations.

    I distinctly recall several people predicting BXP would run into problems with campaign finance donations. You know, exactly like what happened to Farage's last vehicle of personality in UKIP.

    That was so worth it, remind me if I ever visit the Uk to do the same.

    They rejected those before the the vote was counted, and the reason for rejecting some of them is potentially problematic as far as I'm concerned.
    Who knows what outdated signature they had to compare them to, normal peoples signatures sometimes change with time.

    In all honesty, really I need to try and not think to hard about this. Blood pressure and all that.

    C4 & BBC should not be granting the leadership contenders the opportunity to 'debate' on national tv. It gives a sense of democratic legitimacy to a process that has none.
