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

Saying that...I voted in mainly cause Farage is a total dick.

That's one of the best reasons to vote remain that I've heard.

I'm yet to actually hear a decent argument to remain.

What I don't like is the amount of bollox that I hear in the media continually playing on the negative aspects and the steriotyping of out voters. I wish the PM would just push article 50 to stop this crap about ignoring the democratic process coming from some areas.

We as a country need to stop this stupid arguing, self recriminations and get behind the decision, look at and promote the good sides of it rather than continually talking it down.

We have no idea whether there are any "good sides" to it, none of your lot had a plan, didn't expect win, got their bluff called and pissed off. Leave was a populist campaign, run deliberately on emotion not facts, orchestrated by the guy who bankrolls UKIP.

And you put Britan's future in his hands.

I keep forgetting stuff.

I've remembered some pre brexit spiel suggesting Turkey and Serbia were going to join the EU. That's what I think I read. Probably wrong either way.

I didn't fancy that, so that was that.

 

 

They aren't. You were one of the millions that bought the lies. Nearly as bad as voting out for the hell of it.

 Once those things that we get from the EU that probably few of us even think about are gone, then everyone will realise "what the EU did for us."

So you email everyone and arrange to catch up and don't actually notice that I haven't a) received the messages and therefore b) haven't replied until you are actually in the restaurant texting me to ask where I am.

Answer, at home knowing bugger all about it

Ric, I'd struggle to describe voting out solely on a fit of pique as an indicator of intelligence. Or at least of intelligence taking second place to egotism.

And there's me thinking that people might have bothered to engage with the issues before voting. Clearly I must be the stupid one...

CunningFox,

What I actually said was that I don't want to believe that so many people in this country are racist, Islamophobic and xenophobic but the majority of comments I have read so far suggest they are. Maybe people like you need to get among them and defend a different position so people like me can be persuaded otherwise, because like it or not they are speaking very loudly on your behalf whether you agree with them or not. 

I am glad you think you won but sooner or later you may find out that in actual fact we all lost. Are we not all diminished by the rise in hate crime alone, for example?

BTW I am still waiting for someone somewhere to say something along the lines of " I voted out because the EU policy on xxx directly affects my livelihood" - but no-one has so far.

Anyone who uses 'racialism' when they mean 'racism' is obviously too busy being racist to learn the difference.

So that's the reasoning. That and vote out.  Another cheer for VD

Scream. The first thing my daughter said when I mentioned  I was voting out was to call me a racist even though my oldest friend is from Nigeria and I play chess every week with my Romanian neighbour. I don't believe she meant it, It was more of a sudden reaction to what she was picking up from others.  The very same sort like what's on here. Bigotry only breeds more.

Perhaps you will tell me your reason for voting to leave then.  As I said I am keen to find the non racists, non Islamophobes and non xenophobes and am struggling. if you aren't one of them and are keen to distance yourself from them, surely you won't have any objection to telling me.

What a surprise, you are posting a status from a bar somewhere. You only ever post statuses from bars somewhere. You really are as dull as you were when we were at school.

Harsh, a fine line I agree but I felt this was the wrong side. Maybe my opinion is overly conservative, but I felt I had to overt my eyes whenever they fell on her. If it was my daughter I would not have allowed it or at least expressed a strong opinion. I don't think a bikini could have been skimpier and no she looked to young for that as well imo. As I said I had no opinion until this but it made me feel uncomfortable and thus opinion arrived at, age makes a difference.

Were you made uncomfortable by 14 year old Tom Daley wearing speedos at his first Olympics? If not maybe you have to ask yourself if you were actually the one sexualising her when she was just trying to run in something she felt comfortable in.

That isn't an accusation of anything BTW I just think that sometimes what we think instinctively needs examining. if you would not say the same of a boy then you need to ask why.

Asitis, I am still reading comments from brexiteers and, apart from a few reasoned arguments, most of it comes down to:

Bloody foreigners stealing our jobs

Bloody Muslims raping our women

...with lots of very poor spelling and bizarre logic. There was one bloke I came across yesterday who had convinced himself that  all remainers were hating Team GB's success because it proved we could "succeed on our own". What is more he kept repeating it in multiple posts.

And I really wish the above wasn't true because I honestly don't want to believe bigots and idiots exist in such great numbers In this country.
