It's deliberate sabotage of the future of the UK to a bunch of ideologues who by coincidence are going to be quite a bit wealthier at the end of this farce.
I don't see the point in trying to "unite" or "come together" over this shit, damage is done and no leaver can be a friend of mine.
100% accurate jetsam. The fact that the Alt-right would have everyone believe they're in the majority now is proof of their desperation to destroy the UK and turn it into Trumpland#2, at any cost.
They're filth, it's that simple.

I'm sure you will enjoy putting us in our place then. What will it be? Rubber bullets? Batons? Get what's left of the Army onto the streets? All sorts of ways this could play out. Cummings is no doubt creaming himself all over it.

Rushman just seeks to inflame. It's trolling.

I would just ignore him and it.

I normally ignore obvious trolls. But Yesterday made me angry and scared about the next few months and what is coming down the road. I would not be surprised to see them go for a state of emergency on a no deal scenario and then run with it to the obvious conclusion. Johnson and Cummings I consider to be fundamentally dangerous to the future of the UK.

I don't think you're over-stating any concerns at all. In fact, if you take a long hard look at the route deliberately taken to date, against declared aims, it seems to me that the Army - perhaps even militia may end up on UK streets. The problem here is that the population is being told of 'short-term disruption' and 'bumps in the road'. Once those borders go up the predicted shortages & disruptions are permanent until alternative sources (which could take two-three years) become available. State of Emergency yes - that's the easy bit. The difficult part is deciding which parts of the UK population go without

Yes, I'm with you. The whole thing makes me angry and if it were at all possible for me I would move to the UK tomorrow to try to find a tiny part that I could play somewhere to help get things right again. A part of me hopes that the general population will work out what is going on and be just as angry and take to the streets again. We have a history of doing so, and of being ungovernable at certain crucial junctures.

Is lefty "permanent until" the same as Centrist/Right/Alt-Right "temporary" or even "temporary"? Or was that just a complete load of bollocks?

Whats stopping you? You have a special needs cat? Afro hair and a velcro pillow? Cant find your shoes? Or, as I suspect, youre just virtue signaling?

No dear, that was the working classes not Champagne socialists, habitually unemployed middle clas students and dole splodgers looking for the next free ride.

Yes still better company than a poncing socialist.

We see here fellow posters, a True Believer. Whilst his rantings may seem the comedy of one detached from reality, he IS perfectly serious - he'll tell us so.
Just remember, in 64 days time he and his arm-band wearing ilk, will be in charge.
