    Stop mocking the afflicted. He thinks he's a genius, and as any snowflake will tell you, that's enough to make him a genius. He just needs his special safe place...

    No, but those pedalling it as a good idea were saying there'd be £350 million a week for the NHS, we'd have free trade deals with the world, everyone would be begging to do business with us, and anyone who disagreed was just spreading fear.

    You've gone from saying that something was implied, to extrapolating it to another level.

    No one knows what the full impact will be, but if someone who supports staying in the EU asks a question, the responses are smilies or changing the subject. We can't get straight answers - even when asking something as simple as "what would you like?" or "what do you mean by..." or "how much is the tariff?"

    Over two years have gone since the vote, and no one on the Brexit side has yet presented a positive, inclusive idea of the direction we should be going in, never mind the impact.

    There is no evidence or explanation for the existence of sky fairies and yet people just accept the bold claims. Plenty of people try to explain why sky fairies don't exist but they are just dismissed.

    We had our cake and ate it - Maggie created the single market and negotiated a good deal, now you've ruined that.
    In 10-20 years I suspect we'll have to go back into the EU - on their terms, which will probably involve adopting the Euro.
    A shame many of the gammons will be dead by then, as I really want to see them squirm when that happens.

    Yes, as always there is a natural order to things. The fact that, even by their own admission, Bremainers are further down the food chain than these half-wits tells you all you need to know.

    It's a good theory. It would explain a lot.

    However unfortunately the majority of Brexiteers still believe in the £350 million outright lie. Unfortunately the majority of Trump supporters still believe he is a valid person.

    You're not dealing with isolated stupidity here. What we are seeing is half of humanity is incapable of questioning idealogies/religions. They adopt barmy ideas with hardly any resistance and then just deflect all contrary evidence. That's what makes Brexit so depressing. It's not the adverse economic effects. It's not the fact we will become so much less important in the world. It is the awful realisation that we are at the mercy of half-wits. And will be for ever.
