Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Then your location "Manchester" must be inaccurate.

Manchester council has zero Conservative councillors!

I think all the Greater Manchester boroughs are labour controlled atm (I may be wrong but that is my recollection).
Must it?I believe there are 9. My MP is, sadly, Tory.

Unfortunately they are filling up Graham Brady's seat (Altrincham). My guess would be that is where Rufus lives - it's heading Labour quite quickly. Swinging towards Labour in 2019 is a very bad sign.
Your guess would be wrong.

Incidentally a friend, Chris Clarkson, very unexpectedly won his election in Greater Manchester - but I somehow doubt Rufus lives in the former mill town area he represents (Heywood and Middleton - Rochdale / Oldham way).
I used to live in a mill town - not that one - but although i do live in Gtr Manc, I don't live there.

Does it really matter?

Is any of this really relevant to the Brexit discussion?
Not relevant at all. They like to pick pick pick because, I imagine, they think this is a playground. Or something. I find their fascination... peculiar. Don't you?

it seems many EF threads have fallen to petty schoolyard fights between a few individuals.

It is destroying EF.

Just my two centimes worth.
Agreed. Constant attempts to pick arguments and belittle.
