Runner's lie? Cheating rumors didn’t stop Robert Young – but something else did

Posted: Yesterday at 15:42

Yeah, don't panic.  The referendum results are a massive fib. Robert Young's got the real results listed on his TomTom and it's a landslide for Remain.  He's publishing the results, erm, soon.

Are you and "in" or an "out"?

It's a stupidity epidemic! 

A guy called Adam from Manchester was interviewed on TV this morning. he voted to Leave thinking that his vote wouldn't count and is now worried about the outcome.

Holy shit, the future of the country has been decided by cockwombles  like this 


I'll see your Adam and raise you a WHOLE FUCKING COUNTY.

Of course I don't, I interpret this as a completely disingenuous and misleading insinuation, an insinuation which is strong enough to make many people believe that leaving the EU would directly benefit our NHS because of extra funds becoming available.  Indeed, the only promotional broadcast I recall seeing from the official Leave campaign on the TV was along a very similar theme; a "Sliding Doors" type comparison of an elderly woman's experience of visiting her GP, either in or out of the EU.  There was a clear message that leaving the EU would lead to the NHS improving dramatically.  Absolute BS; a good number of the prominent politicians campaigning for Leave want to tear it apart.

You really couldn't make this up:

"For Jim Plows, in Clacton, Essex, the news of Brexit this morning triggered “panic stations”.

Despite voting to leave Europe, the 77-year-old said he was surprised by the news. His wife, Pam, said her first thoughts as the results came in was: “Oh dear.”

The retired couple from Jaywick, in Essex, were among several visitors to Clacton pier to say they were concerned about the process for Britain leaving the EU.

“The next year will be a worry,” said Jim Plows."


I can only assume that we're nearing the end of consciousness as we know it, approaching a wormhole where logic itself becomes slowly disentangled. In the parallel universe we're perilously overlapping, the biggest selling daily newspaper is the Daily Mash, which is clearly the source of this news snippet.

When you grow up as one of four brothers, you count the ripples.  It's the only way to do it fairly.

If we vote "out" will the price of Vienettas go up? This could be vital in my decision making.

Either way, I think there are going to be a lot of ripples...

Not that MPs will necessarily reflect the views of their constituents, but this summary of MPs' voting intentions is interesting, and includes a map.

I'm fascinated to know which areas vote which way. It's going to give an interesting heat map of the U.K. in terms of outlook.

Probably something akin to the striking blue vs red / enlightened urbanites vs hillbilly yokels you get in US presidential elections.
