    This is the biggest misery. The youth unemployment figures are particularly terrifying. Although do I count as youth anymore?!

    Love the GET EM OUT woman carrying the flowers. Makes me proud to be a bit Welsh.

    Incidentally this whole debacle has inspired Plaid Cymru to relaunch their Independent Wales campaign. The last poll I saw was after the Scottish referendum which had 7% in favour. It's got to have gone up to at least 8% since then.

    Predominantly, but Cardiff is a typical old docks town with a historic immigrant community (Tiger Bay being the most famous) In 2001 it was around 2% ethnic minority, doubling to 4% in 2011. The areas with the most immigration voted to Remain though.

    And there are more English people in Wales than Welsh speakers, mainly because Wales relies on a migrant work force and the young people tend to move to England for work.

    My family on my Dad's side are all Welsh. The sane ones live in England and the BATSHIT CRAZY ones that quite literally talk to the imaginary fairies down the bottom of the garden remained in Wales.

    Incidentally, one of the small businesses that I work with says that other businesses he speaks to have already received knock backs and disgusted sentiments from some usual European customers.

    Y'know, I don't mind Anna Soubry so much.

    She has made some valid points in this debate.

    I love the idea of her getting absolutely rat arsed in the Commons bar and coming out to address the commoners Delia Smith style.

    I've always thought Soubry was excellent on Question Time.

    Did anyone else go to the demo? We arrived at Trafalgar Square at about 18:15 to a bit of a damp squib but then it got very exciting as it suddenly turned into (what I presume was) an impromptu march down to Parliament screaming "Boris is a cunt" :disco:

    MORE PLEASE

    Are you going to the Edinburgh one Tetris? I'm thinking of going to the Glasgow one depending on work. But I've never BEEN to one before. What do you DO?

    I went to the May Day riots in 2001 which was amazing. Turn up and go with the flow.

    I am, with my flatmate Just go with the flow, really. They will probably have some speakers, not all of whom you will agree with but just ease along. There will probably be chants.

    The potential turnout for Edinburgh according the FB is in the thousands! I think the most effective thing is just the numbers. Show the gravity of the objection, really.

    I was there for a bit. One of my friends had the EU and Gibraltar flags painted on her cheeks and she was mobbed for pics!

    Sad I had to leave before the march to Parliament! :(

    Have we seen the Greens want to link up with Labour, LibDems, and Plaid Cymru to fuck the tories and UKIP off?

    HI GUYS

    Just to say for any Londoners, Scots, Irish or Bristolians feeling isolated, spare a thought for the Free City of Norwich

    (it's the tiny yellow speck on the arse end of Britain surrounded by racists)

    I mean, if any area was in desperate need of DIVERSIFYING the GENE POOL, it should be East Anglia. Thankfully, when the WATERS COME, they'll be drowned first. :rusty:

    I hadn't noticed that before. Mind you, they have a strong Labour/ Green vote.
