A case can certainly be made for banning foreign funding of mosques as well. Unfortunately this government's shameful coddling of Islamist dictators (as long as they're reasuringly rich) is notorious and even Comrade Corbyn has pointed this out. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-ea...

If you don't like Islamism, stop selling arms to Islamists and allowing them to fund propaganda in this country and stop illegally invading secular regimes as in 2003 and as Dave tried to do in 2013, and tragically Killary Clinton wants to do now.

You're not wrong there Victor Southern, HS2 and this shameful cringing are relics of the Osborne era which will hopefully come to an end.

Philip Hammond certainly isn't on my Christmas card list either though, is there any hope of things getting better and less compromising our country for spurious economic "gains"? http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-ea...

As a Remain voter I'd certainly vote Leave under this circumstances, the electorate have done this and I think it's a self-inflicted wound but it's what we (thought we) wanted, there can't be even 20% of this country who would wear it, not abiding by the result.

The fear is that Boris is too unfocused, unserious and inattentive to detail to do the hard, grinding, mind-numbingly boring but vital work of negotiating this thing. It's like running a "free" school, harder than it looks and Leavers are going to be held to all of their promises and claims.

I wouldn't have thought Mr Gladstone (or Mr Asquith) were to blame for the failure of their legislation, I'd blame the ascendancy for alienating the Irish in the first place. What fools we were for not early accepting a solution (excluding Ulster is need be, as the Asquith proposals would have done) that could have kept the British family of nations together, of which Ireland is very much a part, instead of all the pointless rancour. We can't be turning our Irish cousins into foreigners again.

So basically it'll be even more wasteful and environmentally ruinous than what exists now?

Brexiteers' strongest card is the CAP/CFP (and Turkey). But you undermine your own point by proposing policies that are even worse. I tell my Leave friends that what Boris, Nige et al have planned is even worse. If you seriously imagine Roger Helmer and Owen Paterson as the men who are going to prevent the next flood being as bad as the last one, I've got news for you.

In general, what direction do you think the rEU would take after Brexit? Not one that anyone would want to see, but I've never seen an honest explanation of what Leavers actually think will happen.

I'd support Gary Johnson, Killary is a neocon warmonger, no one even knows what Trump would do except he's too unpredictable and impulsive and all his instincts are wrong.

Bernie would stop the illegal wars but his opposition to free trade would damage the interests of poor people in the developing world who want to better their lot and wouldn't help working-class americans. Vote Johnson so we can have peace and prosperity, another Mr Gladstone for our times.

I live in Stoke and I'll be voting to Remain

Given that you've repeatedly been trounced in local elections, you're hardly a barometer of local opinion, mate.
