Non Voters

We will never know how the 28% that didnít vote in the referendum truly felt. However, I personally think there is a good chance that a large proportion of them may have thought about voting leave...

Wait a minute...

Why exactly has this thread morphed into a Ďname your favourite airfieldí thread?!

There are three options according to the thread title. Surely they warrant more discussion?

Agreed

I am a citizen of Canada as well as the UK. I can think of no reason why I should vote in a Canadian election (thereís one this year) when I am not resident there.

Iím sorry. I must have misunderstood the following from your post:

Not really. If their minds were opened wider they wouldn't be Brexiteers.

Surely you can see how I may have misconstrued your...

OK, lets get into it. Firstly some caveats.

1. I have no idea what the plan for the Reds is and I have no opinion either since it wonít affect me in any way.

2. I should probably have said ĎFJ...

When I use the term confirmation bias I mean that all we hear is remainers stating Ďit is the will of the peopleí to remain in the EU.

Those people are subject to confirmation bias if all they do...

What you are experiencing with that petition is classic confirmation bias.

If all of your remain voting friends think we should revoke article 50 that is hardly surprising.

All this talk of centralising assets. I can see why people think it makes sense but just consider a few things.

The Reds jets are maintained by RAF Engineers. 100 Sqn jets are maintained by...

Easy Street.

Now youíve done it. Pure heresy I tell you.

It was pretty tight for the Jags to land at Cosford (3700í) with a brake chute it was possible to stop in 2000-2500í and the temporary cable made it legal but it definitely focused the mind.

The bit I donít understand is this.

If MPs had approved TMs deal a few days ago we would have Brexited on time.
