"Take back control" = do huge damage to national security. REALLY should've listened to those experts I think.

Politics in Britain is never coordinated or organised in the slightest. Why should we start now?

It's not the politics I'm worried about, it's the consequences of those politics and the idiot people who were "sick of experts" who fucked themselves (and the rest of us) for the manipulations of the very people looking to exploit them the most.

Re: Brexit continues to be a colossal fuck up.

This was always going to happen.

Something else the 52% obviously forgot to tell us about,
Honestly i don't know if my resentment for them will ever leave me completely.

The most googled thing in the UK on the night of the referendum result was,
'what does the EU actually do'
That should tell you everything you need to know about the path we are now heading towards,
Yet the only arguments i ever heard from the average Brexiter on the street was about immigration and the curve of a Banana.

The Daily Mail and TV Stations that gave Farage disproportionate amounts of air time seriously owe the UK an explanation.

Its all about divide and conquer its what the Tory party has always been about,
You see it with the massive political age divide within the UK, You see it with Disabled People pretty much getting the blame for a global recession instead of the banks and middle classes, The Scots, Little Englanders,Londoners and second generation Immigrants who supports Brexit.

They have torn the UK Apart and i fear people will not see the consequences until it is to late,
But hey at least we will have straight Bananas while Europe's most Dangerous criminals can walk the streets of the UK without our authorities having any idea of their previous behaviors.

Gosh it makes so angry still.

Cheers for sharing OP.
Peace and love guys,
and Be Excellent to each other....Always.

Brexit continues to be a disaster. Leave voters continue to go 'remoaners' and remainers continue to call leavers racist or stupid.

We were let down massively by both campaigns and now being let down because no one has a fucking clue what they're doing. Maybot and her Tory cronies are weak as fuck and the EU are trying to be as petty as possible.

I'm a remainer and begrudge anyone who voted leave and anyone who campaigned for leave because we're royally fucked right now.

Re: Brexit continues to be a colossal fuck up.

Brexit kind of highlights one of the biggest issue with democracy. The majority of the population don’t know shit about even basic economics. So how do you then expect them to make such an important decision which can have huge economic ramifications to not only the UK, but Europe itself? You can’t.

Literally everyone with half a brain or more said it would be.



That's what happens when you listen to a bunch of mindless propaganda oppose to facts.

And, yes, I'm well aware of the irony in me, an American, saying that.

Hit the nail of the head.

Democracy requires intelligent voters and these days intelligent voters are unfortunately, and in a lot of cases by design, in the minority.

The thing is though there was never ANYTHING that could've been done for us to have a "positive Brexit." It all hinges on 2 simple facts: The EU is the largest trading bloc in the world, we could never hope to remotely have as good a trade economy outside of it AND The EU isn't built in a way where you can be outside of it and remotely retain any of the positives you gain from being a member. The things the Leave campaign promised are actually impossible for the EU to give us. All of the various deals the gov is proposing can't happen, the EU is built in a way that doesn't allow them to happen. Everybody who did the research knew this already. There's a reason every single expert worth their salt said it'd be a disaster. The problem arose mostly from the "we're sick of experts, let's listen to the most incompetent mainstream politician in living memory (Nasty Nige) instead." If you're not going to listen to the people who actually know what they're talking about and instead make up fantasies in your head predicated on the former glories of an empire that no longer exists - this is what you get.

Re: Brexit continues to be a colossal fuck up.

It's all so depressing.

Given the way the majority of over 65's voted and the speed this is all playing out at, I do wonder how many of them will still be alive when the negotiations have actually finished.

Whilst the Remain campaign has been criticised, if you're dealing with people that claim politicians have an agenda whilst they believe Farage, The Sun and The Mail, as well as older people that seem to have solely voted because "they didn't get a vote to enter the EU", I'm not sure you could have reached those people with logic, facts and expert opinion presented and campaigned for well.

After the stupidity of the overall vote, there are some people that now understand what their vote to leave meant but insist it doesn't matter if it will make Britain worse, it would be undemocratic to go against the tiny majority. So, even though people are waking up to the fact we as a nation marching towards a cliff edge and have ever intention to jump off, "we" voted for it, so we have to proceed.

Should never ever have been a Referendum.

That’s not just a problem in England though, it’s happening everywhere. There’s s rebellion happening against intelligence. Right wingers in America literally at times run on a platform of “who do these educated people think they are with their scientific data and facts?!”
