Women’s March London: Thousands Take To The Streets In Startling Show Of Strength

Post by Thorin on Sat Jan 21, 2017 3:12 pm

First topic message reminder :



Thousands of people gathered in central London on Saturday for the capital’s Women’s March.

Millions of people are expected to attend marches across the world to support womens’ rights - in a show of force on the first full day of Donald Trump’s presidency.

It was brought up to leave or stay. If you only made leavers vote, you'd have to assume that everyone else who didn't vote wanted to stay, and that wouldn't necessarily be true.


Look it would be the same if we were not in the EU and a referendum was called for to join the EU.
If those wanting to join never obtained 50%+, then they would not be the majority of the populace would they?


Like I said, we are in the EU, the leave vote was only 38% of those eligible to vote
That means 62% wanted to stay or do not give a shit about leaving

But a larger percentage either wanted to leave or didn't care either way - or didn't know which way to vote.

But again we are in the EU
38% wanted to lave
62% did not want to or did not care to vote
38% is not a majority of the populace is it?

Allow these facts to sink in slowly, because I have you by the balls

Piss off dodge... you can't put those who didn't vote on either side.

No you haven't. A larger percentage wanted to leave or didn't care to vote. Unless you keep having referendums until there's 100% turnout, you'll never get a solution, and that's not going to happen.

You mean a minority percentage wanted to leave, 38%
That is not a majority is it?

Take your time on this.

A smaller percentage wanted to stay or didn't care than the percentage who wanted to leave or didn't care. Are you grasping that yet Didge?

Again we are "in" the EU
People are "claiming" the majority voted to leave the EU.
This is false, 38% is not the majority of the populace
Those who did not care would count to stay, based on the fact we are in the EU already and the emphasis on voting was to leave.

The vote was to find out if people wanted to stay or leave. The majority of people who voted want to leave. If you base all election successes on 50% of the popular vote with 100% turnout, nobody would get anywhere.

Those who did not care would not count as wanting to stay - because they didn't care. Those who couldn't decide could also not be counted as those who want to stay - because they didn't know.

Do you think the Scottish referendum should be void as there wasn't 100% turnout then?

But we are in the EU
Those who voted to leave was 38% of the populace
How is 38% a majority Rags of those eligible to vote based out of 100%?
We are in the EU, so those who did not care, did not care to stay or leave and thus we are already in the EU, the onus, is on those voting to leave
They achieved 38%, thus those who did not care, would count as to stay
No I do not think the Scottish one should be void, as those wishing to leave have to get over 50%+ of the populace eligible to vote for independence. Those voting to leave never achieved that.

Not caring means they didn't care if we stayed or left, so they can't be said to want to stay in. The onus was on people who wanted to stay to actually vote, and those who didn't failed.

Of course they count as stay, as we are in and the onus is on to leave the EU
That was why a referendum was called, to allow for those moaning about the EU, to have a chance to vote to leave
They obtained 38% of the populace vote, which is not a majority of the populace

It still wouldn't work as you would have to assume that the previous Tory voters would still vote Tory as opposed to not actually caring. Also, nobody knows who voted for which party because it's a secret ballot, so you'd only have people's word for it that they voted Tory, and how would you collect that information anyway?



Of course it would vote, as all that was required for people to do was vote for change


Perhaps those that didn't vote, didn't care.

Dodge.. it never fails to amaze me how you try to shoehorn such spurious arguments into debate and then try to insist they are valid...


There was a vote... everybody who was eligible to vote and wanted to vote, did vote... the result is based on the votes cast... not on those who didn't vote!!!

Of the people who voted, yes. You can't argue with that.

Only 38% of the eligible populace voted to leave
That is not a majority

It wouldn't work because you still wouldn't have 100% turnout. In your scenario, you would assume that all the people who didn't vote wanted the Tories to stay, and they might not want that - they might just dislike the other party.

Do you need a 100% turnout to get 50%+ of the vote to have a majority?

Well you seem to think you do. You're complaining about the fact that the vote to leave was based on less than 100% turnout. It's nonsense to say that those who didn't vote should be counted as wanting to stay, so 100% turnout would be required.

Show me anywhere that I stated you need a 100% turnout?
I never did, which proves you cannot grasp simple maths
I said all you need is 50%+ of the eligible to vote to have a majority.
So all you would need for a turnout for a majority, would be 50.1% of the populace to turn out and vote leave
As again the bases for the referendum was brought about o give people to chance to vote to leave

That was based on your idea that those who wanted to stay or didn't care either way merely had to stay away from the booths. That's just nonsense obviously. Therefore, in order to get more than 50% of the eligible voters to vote to leave, you need to have less than 50% of the eligible voters vote to stay - ie, 100% turnout.

Didge, considering that you think a non-vote means that someone wants no change, I think it's you who should be put in a corner facing the wall. Laughing

I said all you need is 50%+ of the eligible to vote to have a majority.
So all you would need for a turnout for a majority, would 50.1% of the populace to turn out and vote leave
As again the bases for the referendum was brought about o give people to chance to vote to leave

That was based on your idea that those who wanted to stay or didn't care either way merely had to stay away from the booths. That's just nonsense obviously. Therefore, in order to get more than 50% of the eligible voters to vote to leave, you need to have less than 50% of the eligible voters vote to stay - ie, 100% turnout.





Come again?????

You are saying to get 50%+ of those eligible to vote to leave requires 100% turnout of those eligible to vote?

Yes, because you can't assume that anyone who didn't vote wants to stay in the EU. Actually, it's 100% of those registered to vote, unless you think that those who didn't register also wanted to stay.

Sorry, I really have PMSL
So if 90% of those eligible to vote, come out to vote to leave. Does that require a 100% turn out Rags?

Seriously, count on your hands if you need to

Cool

Well they wouldn't have would they? Otherwise, the 72% who did come out to vote would have all voted to leave.

Didge, based on the result, a 90% turnout wouldn't be enough because you would assume that the 10% who didn't vote want to stay. This is the real world Didge, not some weird place you seem to have found yourself in.

Eureka, she nearly gets it, that you would not need a 100% turnout, if 90% voted to leave
You would not need 100% turnout if 70% voted to leave.

Not turning out to vote should not have any effect on result...

Only those who vote should decide.

In the real world, you wouldn't get 100% of those who voted all voting the same way though. That only happens in Didgeland. I mean, are you actually in the real world at all? It doesn't look that way.

I agree, hence why it should only be about those voting to leave to be the ones voting, requiring a 50%+ majority

Exactly, but in Didgeland, not voting automatically means that you want to stay in the EU. Laughing

Didge, did you actually see the referendum ballot paper? It clearly asked you if you want to stay in the EU or leave the EU.

If people didn't vote then they aren't included in the numbers! It's really that simple.
You can't say that those who didn't vote would've voted to stay - doesn't matter what they say after the event.

The majority of people who voted, voted to leave. No other answer is needed.

Exactly. These polls after the event aren't going to be accurate because those who didn't vote might have all kinds of reasons for saying they want to stay now, and they might have felt differently at the time of the vote - if they were at all bothered. If they weren't bothered at the time of the vote and then decided later that they were, well it's too late.

Also, if they had another referendum now, people might vote to stay as a kind of backlash against the first vote, or vote to stay in a panic. They'd have to yet another one later on.

Of those who voted... 52% voted leave!!!


That is over 50%... so therefore a majority over 50%.
