    Brexiter=Someone who supported Brexit.
    Bremainer = Someone who would like to remain in the EU.
    Bremoaner = someone who moans about the vote. Either side but losers seem to have it worse.
    Remnant = offensive name for a Bremainer who is annoying. Surprisingly common on this board.
    Racist = an unsupported slur used against people who voted for Brexit.
    Cretin = the word SasGuru is proud he can spell.

    Happy to use other terms if you can supply them.

    By the way Brexiteer & Bremainer are in common use by Dictionaries & the broadsheets so lets assume they are real words and you are just out of touch.

    They're all negative terms though aren't they? Would anyone describe themselves as a Brexiteer or a Bremainer? Or only those who hold the other (i.e. wrong) view? The idea you can sum up someone's entire stance on a complicated issue with a one-word label is crazy too. It's classic "them and us" division. Who cares about the points or the debate or what it means, as long as we know which side to put people on...

    Like, would anyone here apply such a label to themselves? Actual question?

    I'm for Brexit I see no issue with being called a Brexiteer I don't see it as a negative label, conversely my Brother is a Bremainer I respect his stance despite believing he is being naive.

    We do it all the time Facist, Libertine, Equality Campaigner. Its good to be clear. However any intelligent person realises there are shades of gray.

    But that would result in me posting useless unrelated crap to the OP's question that doesn't help anyone and make me look a right pillock..........

    I'd happily describe myself as a "Brexiteer", as it sounds bold and adventurous and potentially lucrative, like a privateer.

    Not at all like those timid, stay-at-home (in the EU) Bremainers!
