LISTEN: This chap voted leave. He was led to believe a vote for #brexit would make him more free.

I still don’t blame the voters such as those… when people tried to tell them that THEIR FoM and THEIR pensions could be effected by Brexit, they were crowded out by calls of PROJECT FEAR. That the media, including the BBC, allowed this “balance” (just dismiss warnings over what losing EU membership will mean, as, basically, lies, without any actual counterpoint as to why the warnings should be heeded) is a huge question. And now, their willingness to repeat “undemocratic” whenever someone suggests we might night some more democratic oversight, of any kind, over what is going on in our name, raises the same huge question…Posted 8 months ago
I’m with the doctor. These people have the wherewithal to afford retirement abroad. They could have done 5 minutes of critical thinking.
Best is they are the same lot that crap on about how Britain survived the war. Yet can’t be further than 5 minutes away from a Spanish bar with cheap lager, full English and premiership football without moaning about it.Posted 8 months ago
Yep, my old man has lived in Spain a time, he and his crowd are very pro EU, for obvious reasons but there are a few who are staunch leavers, the most vocal being a typical racist, who’s also a bit of a fraud, owns a property, doesn’t have residency and over stays frequently… It’s just bare faced hypocrisy.Posted 8 months agodannyhMember
Sigh — aren’t we all clever because we didn’t fall for the bullshit, even though the “reputable” news channels repeated it ad nauseam.
Not clever per se, but rather just not as thick as pig shit. I glean no satisfaction from knowing I am less gullible than a bunch of thickos, so meh.Posted 8 months ago
Sigh — we all consume and assess information differently — those people who didn’t campaign for us to have a referendum, but had to decide on the run up to the vote which way to vote (they didn’t ask to be made to assess our EU membership) and came down on balance to Leave, are not “Thickos”. They may have been previously disinterested. They may have believed the chants of “Project Fear”. They may still have no idea what is now going to happen… but then, who the whatever does?!?Posted 8 months ago
If they’re too stupid to have thought through the possible implications then they deserve whatever difficulties they now face…
So, are you clear are on the implications… years later? Because I’m not. Those that listened to the wrong people are not necessarily stupid. You have to get past that… or just sink back into your own little hole and stay there. There are many reasons why people mistrusted the untrustworthy people in the government and Remain campaign… it’s easy for us to point at the Leave campaign and say “how could anyone trust these snake-oil sales people”… but have another look at who headed the Remain campaign…Posted 8 months ago

Surely that is a definition of what a “thicko” is? Someone provided with a body of information (directly or indirectly) and making an incorrect decision based on it?Posted 8 months agokimbersSubscriber
I’m sure plenty of leave voters are thickos, plenty of remainers too.
We all know people voted for different reasons, hence 17 million different versions of what Brexit means
I think the guy in the video does qualify though-
Voting to leave to remove FOM from immigrants without realising he was an immigrant himself.Posted 8 months ago
It makes no sense.
The person fronting the Remain campaign looked a lot like our PM at the time. All previous living PMs also took part in the Remain campaign. If you don’t trust any of those heads and previous heads of the UK government, then perhaps it made sense to you.Posted 8 months ago
So leavers voted based on thier perception rather than considering the practicalities and ramifications?
Sounds pretty stupid to me.
Of course we have the other flavour of leaver, the ultra right wing rich who support leave not out of stupidity but pure callous selfishness.
The former seem to support the latter without realising what the real game is here.
I’m still of the opinion that leavers fall into the following 3 catagoies.
Those categories are not mutually exclusive, they also can be a combination of any two, or all three.Posted 8 months agoCougarSubscriber
ION, the ironically named Seaborne has been kicked to the kerb.
I wonder where the money for all that is now..?Posted 8 months ago
but then, who the whatever does?!?
The government’s own figures and preparedness notices are painting a pretty bleak picture.

Re Japan. T. people (pro Brexit twitter group stated today
“Japan is one small country ! imagine their loss when we are successfully trading with 194 other countries! Brexit as per mandate as per the referendum as per democracy as per the vote of 17.4 million as per 1000 years of history! leave now on WTO”.
Small country eh? Almost twice the population of the UK, 3rd largest economy in the world. But yeah, whatever.
Sinn Fein are talking up a referendum on Irish unification.
Meanwhile Kate Hoey continues her pathetic little sniping at Guy Verhofstadt.Posted 8 months agocchris2louMember
I am in the Leavers are thick as shxt camp.Posted 8 months ago
It was, and still is obvious, what the implications of leaving the EU are.
I am French, my wife is English, we live in France, have 3 UK born children, have property in France and UK. And we travel between the 2 countries a lot.
Brexit is a huge issue for us, leavers can all go and **** themselves as far as I am concerned. And the more they suffer from it, the better.CougarSubscriber
Whilst I don’t think that making rash generalisations about any group of people is a good idea or does us any favours, I present for your viewing pleasure this nugget from a leaver on an open pro-brexit FB group.
The plan is to do trade deals ect when we have left did not say plan on voting paper it said leave or remain or deal we had trade with them before we joined so what is the difference up to our negotiators to get good deals that’s there jobs that’s why we pay our taxes they work for us the voters so please remainers get it thru your thick heads it DID not say leave with a deal on the referendum paper
agian up to those we have in parliament to do there jobs that’s what they get paid for or what point is there in them having jobs like all leave voters we did not vote on a deal with EU we voted to leave deals are town to our government and there job is to make sure we leave the Eu if it’s no deal then 17.4 of us will live with it
I’m not unconvinced that the entire page isn’t satire. It’s so hard to tell any more. What do other readers think?Posted 8 months ago
