Overdone it?

Posted: Yesterday at 22:56
Yeah and I get some highlighted cells again and Lou was good enough not to obliterate my time so I can still imagine beating it one day even if I never do.

Just been back and checked and my scraps took me 1:18 (5:55 pace) in my 38:01 so I just don't have finishing speed of you young 'uns!

Lou well done - official results are on Worcester website coz when you posted your teaser post I got pissed off and went and looked at your results.

You must have really floored it for the last 0.22 miles because I think your splits to 6 miles are actually slower than when I ran my 38:01!

I'll update the TTT in the morning.

Good running Charlie too.

24 hour media syndrome.

If the politicians would behave more like mature responsible adults this would also help.

If Remain had won a lot of the same stuff would have been stoked up just in reverse.

eg 'I voted remain but now they've won and I wonder if I've missed a once in a lifetime chance to make the EU work better'.

It would still have left 50% of the country unhappy and remember in England that % was a lot greater for leave whatever the inadequacy of the reasoning (there will have been many who voted remain for similar nonsense reasons.

I read somewhere that only 31% of 18 - 24 year olds voted - can't find it now but if more of them had given a shit about their future then perhaps it would have been a different result.

For me the reason Remain lost was simple - after 40 years of being in Europe none of the many politicians who backed Remain could actually stand up and articulate what being in Europe had done for us in a positive way.

That sounds frustrating Mace.

Nice surprise prize Velloo.

Half marathon parkruns??? Anyhow well done McFlooze - sounds like more comedy relaying of the kids though

I ran 10 miles today to get to 41 miles for week - no quality but biggest mileage week for a while so pretty happy.

I have all my whisky bottles lined up for tomorrow evening. Good luck Lou (and Charlie too).

I don't like nationalism but we've all pretty much had it imposed on us overnight anyway so, if Scotland wants to dissolve the Union and stay in the EU they should.

I think only 48% of us have had it imposed on us and only 62% of Scots.

Only? 48 and 62 are quite big percentages! 

Yes they are but much lower than 100% (all) - sorry for delayed answer, I've been working, those bastard Europeans keep buying things from us!

I think only 48% of us have had it imposed on us and only 62% of Scots.

17 million people voted to Leave including 1 million Scots with 1.6 million Scots voting to Remain.

So in Scotland about 60:40 for Remain.

In Scottish Independence Ref about 55:45 Stay in Union.

Perhaps 55 - 60% of Scots are just loyal to the status quo?

I do not really understand why Nicola Sturgeon is so keen to leave the UK but also so keen to Remain in Europe.

If we had voted narrowly to say I think that would have been a wake-up call.

Now any reforms they do make on the back of this won't be benefitting us.

Hello foot, meet bullet...

Skinny - well it might, it might not. It doesn't matter now. We could have had another referendum in the future if it hadn't reformed but there's no way back from this unless the scales fall from the Brexiter's eyes so rapidly before October that article 50 never gets invoked. 

Won't hold my breath though...

Yes this is another reason why the referendum was just a really stupid idea. 

Most people would have voted differently if they could have changed something about all the various EU legislation we are subject to (for a lot of people that would have been an immigration cap and I will use this as the example below).

Once the Vote is done nobody can assess why people have voted that way and go back to the EU and negotiate that specific change and then go back to the people for a new vote saying - right that is sorted now.

So much simpler for the Government to say ' Our policy is that we are going to leave the EU unless we can put a cap on our immigration' - then the EU decide and then we act on that decision.

Instead DavCam went to negotiate with the 'threat' that unless you do what I want then I'm going to ask our population what they want and so EU ignored him and now we've voted and now it's too late.

I think now we have voted to leave they will reform to try and keep the EU together and stop other countries leaving - too late for us.

This is a shame because if they had shown this willingness to reform before we voted perhaps we would be looking at a different result this morning.

The EU gambled that they did not have to change and we would still vote to stay in - they were wrong.

EDIT - I disagree with Scream thought that a close vote to stay in would have brought about these same reforms - at that point all our negotiating pressure for reforms would have gone.

My work is also likely to be massively affected if new trade agreements can not be made but there are 2 years for this mess to be sorted out so I would rather approach it calmly and see what happens and adjust accordingly than jump off one of the cliffs on the side of the road just because it is there. Perhaps if I stay driving along the road for another two years I will reach flatter ground.
