This report? Nothing comes up on Google about anyone discrediting it. Who did discredit it?

What's an extreme-remainer? Remainers know there are things that need reforming, but there's no ''hard' or 'soft' remain. And the rest of your paragraph is a wonderful piece of fiction. Some EU nationals are leaving because of the media hostility, and the hostility of some of the people who believe what those papers tell them.

I hope you guys feel proud of what you've done.
What have we done?

You're joking, right. It was the Daily Mail, Daily Express and the Sun that were the biggest culprits, and the papers with the biggest circulations in the UK. And all papers you left off your list.

Even Leave were surprised they won. What would you be saying now if the vote had been remain?

If you believe that the UK has had or would have had any influence in the speed and direction of the EU's evolution then I have a really nice bridge over the Severn that I could let you have cheap.
No you don't. Both Severn Bridges are owned by the Severn Crossing PLC until next year. Never try to sell someone a product that can be verified you don't own.

The UK does not want to be part of Greater Germany and voted accordingly.
You're hilarious.

Ha! The extreme-leave brigade doing what I always said they would do - blaming this debacle on anyone else but themselves.

Suck it up. You (I know, not you personally but leave voters) have done this and no-one else.

I'll hazard a few guesses - MigrationWatch, DigitalGhost, Dick Dasturdly, la mancha, Breitbart, Westmonster, Nigel Farage and Cape Blue. The last one said something about LSE being a propaganda department for mass immigration, If I remember correctly.

To liven up the moaners and Brit haters weekend,

This from a Telegraph Contributor.....

"We have never produced a Hitler, Mussolini, Ceaucesu, Tito, Radovan Karadžić, or anyone like the countless despots the Europeans always seem to cleave to.

On the contrary, we, and the Americans, have, time and time again rescued these democratically impoverished people from their home made catastrophes.

We have never assisted in sending our Jews, muslims, Jehovahs' Winesses, gypsies or any other minority into death camps, and have nothing to learn from the people who have - right up until very recently done so regularly.

We should not pay these graspers one penny piece - they have been voraciously living off our hard work and goodness for far too long"

We Brits invented the concentration camp, where thousands of Boer women and children died during their imprisonment.

We used machine guns to mow down spear carrying natives in our various colonial wars.
British individuals broke UK laws to get Jewish refugees into the UK in pre war years when many in the UK establishment were pro Nazi and anti Semitic.
I take it given your limited knowledge if history that you never heard of Moseley,,the black shirts the 1930,s version of Farage and UKIP.
But Don,t let facts get in way of your return Dick..

Thankfully, Franco and his White Terror didn't make that illustrious list.

How's it going in Spain, Dick, learned anything useful from the neighbours ?

No we didn’t. America set up concentration camps for native Indians, but they were not termed as such because the word had not been invented yet. The privilege for this goes to the Spanish in Cuba, where 225,000 Cubans died in eighteen months in concentration camps in Cuba.

Ignoring facts again, you should look up the actions of the British army in South Africa.
DICK and the author of the link are proof that some Brits think that they live on another planet and demonstrate the so-called superiority and prejudice so evident in the Brexit vote.

I see that you did not contradict my comments regarding the anti semitism and pro Nazi views prevent in the highest levels of Pre war UK society that condemned who knows how many to the horrors of the holocaust...

We are not the worst and neither are we perfect .

I am not ignoring the facts: you are. You said we Brits invented the concentration camp. History tells us we did not, unless you want to rewrite history again to fit in with your flawed ideology? That is all.

As for anti-semitism in Britain in the 30s etc. etc. (yawn) etc…

Nice side-slip but it doesn't work: I'm not biting.

I am sure that the 25000 women and children who dies in the concentration camps of South Africa are relieved that we did not invent the phrase, what is the Spanish word is it " concentration ".
It's a flawed ideology to believe that being British means that we are genetically superior to all others and incapable of the worst in the human mind.
We are not, it's just a matter of degrees.
Had we lost ww2, as in every other occupied nation, the collaborators would have emerged and helped load British Jews and others on the trains on the way to the gas chambers..

Seems the UK is beyond repair ...

Six in ten Leave voters and a third of Remain voters say significant damage to the economy would be a price worth paying to get their way on Brexit

I love how that's spun. Let's rephrase that a bit.

6.1 in 10 Leave voters say significant damage to the economy would be a price worth paying to get their way on Brexit. 6.6 in 10 Remain voters believe that's not a price worth paying.

And look how many older voters are willing for family members to lose their jobs to Brexit.
