The "Stop the War" protest against the Iraq War, held on Feb. 15, 2003, would count as the largest, with at least 750,000 people, according to police figures

I've suspected for a while now that BREXIT was a big mistake and that most of the citizen of G.B. think so too. The recent negotiations between May and the E.U. have reinforced that view, she wants the advantages of membership without the responsibilities. Can't have it both ways and the people of G.B. will suffer, in ways not thought of today, if they continue on this reckless path.

I wish them luck.

Sounds like they are as divided as we are. Someone is doing a damn good job of spreading misinformation and hate in our free and Democratic societies.

We are currently at a disadvantage in this new age of information warfare. We are an open society and our adversaries are not. This makes it easy for them to spread false stories and gin up the hate.

If we had leaders with balls ⚽️ ⚽️ we would have a chance at defending ourselves.

Right now we are basically doing nothing while they run roughshod over us tearing our democracies apart from within.

Winning!

What a crock. The corporatist-globalist-loving left hated Brexit from the start. They love globalist supra-national organizations like the EU, UN and despise national sovereignty, just like they love centralized government in the US and everywhere else, and despise the very idea of a federal republic and decentralized power.

Liberals prefer integration.
Conservatives prefer segregation.

While they're at it, let France and Germany build their own military if they want one.

What kind of person chooses "disintegration" over "integration?"

What kind of person chooses colonies over soverignty?

What kind of person chooses hegemony? Was Gandhi a terrorist?

Wait a second, was the founding of our nation a terrorist act?

You mean, Like that racist Boston Tea Party where they dressed up like Indians before dumping Mitch McConnell's takeout, I mean King George's tea, into the harbor?

The kind that joined forces with murderous dictator Stalin to destroy the slightly less murderous dictators Hitler and Mussolini.

Brexit is not a US presidential election. You do not get to reconsider after 4 years; it is in fact a once in a lifetime decision.

The original Brexit vote was held in a virtual information vacuum, for the simple reason that neither pro nor anti-Brexit proponents had any clue as to the complexity or irreconcilable nature of issues involved. To give an obvious example, the issue of the border between Northern Ireland and Eire was simply ignored, yet it is a massive impediment to any compromise.

The widespread impacts of Brexit on the lives of ordinary UK citizens have slowly been identified as the farce which is the negotiation process has unfolded. There is no solution following Brexit which puts ordinary citizens in a better position than they would be in if the UK did not leave. Here's a good summary article of the current position:

Under these circumstances asking everyone a second time if they are absolutely sure they want to leave would be eminently reasonable. Unfortunately I have no faith that a second referendum will be called and this will be a massive mistake.

How do you feel about those who voted for Brexit?

How bout India's independence? Do you support Hong Kong or China?

Does Iraq and Afghanistan hold any claim of Occupiers?

I support the founding of our nation, Snoofy.

Are dems trying to found their own nation to escape the tyranny of the Constitution?

I do not, builder of straw. The Boston tea party was unnecessary for our Independence.

We could have won like Gandhi, at a higher cost of life. Mobs aren't willing to die, they're willing to kill.

I'm always open to being educated, so if there is something in the article I linked which is factually incorrect, feel free to enlighten me. Otherwise, I'm going to have to go with my current opinion that the options faced by the UK in leaving the EU are pretty much as stated in the article, with the attendant problems each entails.

Nullifidian doesn't have anything but pseudo intellectualism and platitudes.

He's currently the biggest troll on the DR.

Best not to take anything he posts seriously.

You can pretty much write off his posts as desperation for human attention.

It's sad.

Perhaps, but even I'm not stupid enough to think that a plane didn't hit the Pentagon on 9/11, like you.

No, you're stupid enough to think a plane hit the Pentagon.

You're good at swallowing official government statements.

No gag reflex at all.

Well. Unless it's about Hillary.

Then it's dish dish dish!

No. Just you. Specifically for your overt defense of Trump and Trumpublican policies.

Gandhi wasn't the only fighter for Indian independence. He was just the only non-violent one.
