The Crown Corporation of London which is a conglomerate is not accountable to the EU. In fact, like the Vatican in Rome and Washington DC, it governs itself above super-states like the EU or the United States.

Nope.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

Re: Lets look at a unified Korea.
No, your mistake is thinking that GDP per capita has anything to do with per capita income.

GNP per capita would be a less flawed measurement. Using GDP does not help your argument.

Re: Remember the main issue driving "Leave" or Brexit.
So you support leaving the EU?

Re: Predictions
And the EU is responsible for those changes?

reports on referendum
There will be no reporting until polls are closed.

What can the BBC report?

* Uncontroversial factual accounts such as the appearance of politicians and others at polling stations or the weather.

* The practicalities such as when the polls are open, the wording of the question and expectations of when the result may be known are allowed.

* The BBC’s online sites will not have to remove archived reports.

What can’t the BBC report?

* The BBC stops short of actually encouraging people to vote.

* While the polls are open, it is a criminal offence for anyone, not just broadcasters, to publish anything about the way in which people have voted in the referendum, where that is based on information given by voters after they have voted.

* The BBC can’t report anything emerging from exit polls (which, by definition, are asking people how they actually voted), although the broadcasters have not commissioned any exit polls for the referendum.

* No opinion poll on any issue relating to the referendum can be published by broadcasters until after the polls have closed.

Re: Boris isn't running to be PM
Why would he want to be PM while Britain burns(figuratively not literally)?

Re: Jonathan Pie on Brexit
Substitute trump for brexit and the rant almost fits for the US.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Brexit Party begins its disintegration
"institutionalized racism within the whole of the party."

Kind of like the GOP here in the USA.
If anyone claims otherwise all you have to do is mention Thomas Hofeller.

Re: Brexit Showdown
Things just got a bit more tricky for Boris.

quote:
Boris Johnson has seen his one-vote Commons majority vanish before his eyes, as a statement by the prime minister to parliament was undermined by the very public defection of the Conservative MP Phillip Lee to the Liberal Democrats.
The stunt, in which the pro-remain Bracknell MP walked across the chamber to the Lib Dem benches flanked by two of his new colleagues, happened as Johnson updated the Commons on last month’s G7 summit, a statement devoted mainly to Brexit.
