He just sounds like a bad loser at the moment. Not that I can suggest any obvious or viable alternative unfortunately, what a mess.


It sounds insane...they're just going to watch everything crumble. I'm really starting to believe England is finished.

Leave voters know something is wrong, many of them have been screwed over by austerity, but then were told that it's the EU that is causing these issues. A message reinforced by the media and politicians, who have exploited voters through pure lies. Present that message now it has become increasingly clear.

People want their world view reinforced rather than challenged. The majority will tend to dig their heels in more. That applies to both sides of the argument. It's not that folk will be maliciously unreasonable, more a case of cognitive dissonance kicking in.

Yup. The reason we are in this mess is because the high and mighty brandished words like racist and xenophobic and then smeared political correctness in slightly less well-educated peoples face. It's not their fault that the educational system failed them. Working as barman I once called a bloke racist after he called Sikhs, Muslims, and Hindus all the same and that they were all terrorists. He exploded in a fit of rage, he said things like if a dog gives birth in a stable is the baby a horse or a pup? He went so far as to say he would slit every one of the so-and-so bastard throats if it meant our children will grow up without fear of being blown up. He ended his rant with "but I'm no racist"
It blows my mind that people like this exist but the man was in ex-forces and overall if it wasn't for this unintelligible bigotry I'd say he was a nice guy. But he was not born with this attitude and he cannot be blamed for it being ingrained in him.

"He's a really nice guy... except when he's not."

We're living in a time where people can have access to more information than ever before in history (and more disinformation, granted) and can meet people from all walks of life nearly anywhere in the world. I don't think there are a ton of genuinely good excuses for being that level of ignorant any more.

The man you're describing has chosen to believe the worst about a very sizeable portion of people on this planet. That says something about him, don't you think? His reasons and opinions are his own and he's welcome to have them, but that doesn't stop him from being an ignorant shitbag, nor being called out on it.

I won't deny that there is an (interesting and worrying) class/education/age divide in the voting, nor will I disagree that a lot of Remain voters (myself included) are wagging fingers and venting on Leave voters a little unfairly. But it's hard to deny that immigration (along with the - yes - xenophobic subtext that a portion of Leave voters have attached to that) wasn't a key issue. I'd go so far as to say that I think it's clear that the said portion was in fact quite sizeable, rather than a small bunch of bad apples.

I despise Hunt, yet I'm thinking about paying to be a Tory and vote him in on that alone. Then it's a backup plan in case there's not a GE and we can't get Lib Dems in to try and block a vote on it alongside the SNP and other individual MPs.

Just got to give a big "LMFAO" at Farage's speech today.

No Nigel, people voted the way they did becauae YOU deceived them.

As a side note....the way he speaks, and gloats about how he was right all along. Really reminds me of David Icke.

I was hoping that would good thing that could come out of all this was him disapppearing after the whole NHS money issue...yet he seems content to keep going. His ego has inflated and he seems to be in this for personal glory.

So Visa and Vodafone are already floating plans to leave and move jobs and as I understand it as soon as Article 50 is invoked every major bank will need to tell shareholders what their relocation plan is if the UK does not agree an acceptable trade deal in 2 years.

Article 50 is a bomb waiting to go off and the UK can't mitigate it because the EU have ruled out pre-negotiating.
