Yeah it’s a weird one and not quite as easy as a simple case of leave won so have to honor it, the leave side aren’t happy with the deal so should they be able to vote again now that they actually know what the deal will be rather than just the lies they were originally told.
The SSM we knew exactly what we’d be getting, the republic one we voted for a specific type and even if we voted simply yes or no for a republic Australia would have chosen the type, with Brexit the ball was in the EUs court.
Did we know exactly what we were getting even now spin off legislation is being talked about and that is the nature of these things.
IMO I cant remember the last time you advocated your above position on something where you agreed with the original vote. It just comes across as dishonest to me, but you argue what you are going to argue.
For me, whatever UK end up with, if they want to be in the EU they first have to leave as that is what they told the world they want to do. Then if they want back in after another vote they can see if the EU wants them and see how they go.
If they don't like the deal, don't take it. Same as a divorce, if you and your former wife nut out something you don't like, you don't look her in the eyes and say I want to stay together, honestly what kind of world of garbage do you live in.
To change the subject, fairfax reported yesterday that the negative gearing and property tax adjustments were losing popularity even with labor gaining popularity.
Funny that, how this **** legislation isn't so exciting when the one aim it was going for has already been achieved. Thing is, once sydney / melbournes market dies, the lack of confidence will spread to qld and regional nsw/vic in housing. Another odd note, despite prices coming right down in sydney the people who were looking to get in before when it was too expensive are now sitting on the sidelines because they dont want to buy in to a falling market...
People either have balls or they don't.
