      Remainers are usually educated liberals, intelligent, tolerant of minorities, economically sound unlike the Tories selling the family silver at every opportunity, don't resort to slander in the face of abuse (Jeremy Corbyn at PMQ for instance, May calling him everything under the sun but he never lowers himself).

      Meanwhile the Wrexiters come across with short-sighted arguments combined with a sense of fury at everything that moves.

        Probably because May wasn't Jewish he would have probably said something then. Now if she were a terrorist he would be all over like a rash. I think we need a new Internet rule, how many posts before someone mentions a lame or dangerous politician.

        Labour only have fire sales on Gold. They gave away the family silver.

        Pretty sure a number of defunct organisations were flogged by Liebour just as Labour closed more pits than Maggie.

          Being a Liberal is nothing to boast about And have a look at the demographic of the vote before you make assertions.

          Brexiters don't want a central European government which is where the EU Commission is heading.

            Wrexiters don't know what they want. Their illustrious leader May whatsit doesn't even know.

            The EU has achieved so much for citizens who live there it is astounding. Compare the progress the EU has made in the last 40 years to that of America. I know which continent I'd rather live on without at doubt. Europe continues to be one of the most desirable parts of the world. And the U.S.—a country that is in serious decline both economically and in terms of civil liberties—needs to take a close look at some of the things that European countries are doing right.

              But have these things happened because of the EU specifically or because in general things have got better?

                  Not sure how peace in Europe, the progress the EU has made, could be mutually exclusive events. Cooperation between member states for the benefit of the greater whole has only made the EU stronger in some ways.

                    Peace in Europe has been sustained because of NATO, in large part due to the financial clout of the USA.
                    The EU has had very little part to play in the securing of peace.

                    The original idea of a Union of free markets, all trading with each other was a sound one, and worked very well for a great many years. However, the leadership of this EU drifted ever further away from the simple notion of mutual trade alliances and created the profligate and controlling monstrosity that it has now morphed into.
                    When a Club has reached the point that it actively threatens to mete out punishment to any member that wishes to leave that club, then it is past its sell-by date.
                    We will be but the first to Leave it.

                      The ignorance of the brexiter laid bare. Why was the EU formed?

                      "The European Union is set up with the aim of ending the frequent and bloody wars between neighbours, which culminated in the Second World War. As of 1950, the European Coal and Steel Community begins to unite European countries economically and politically in order to secure lasting peace."

                      Quite an inditement considering the results for the past 60 years.

                      I start by talking about peace in Europe and you scale it up to the northern hemisphere. Thick as a whale omelette you are.
