    Interchangeable with "refusing", when you only actually used "refusing".

    Your question? Obvious and redundant;
    Answer: Zero difference.


    Now, your turn...
    1. How does not wanting to buy produce from certain countries equate to "wanting citizens of EU countries to suffer (and/or detesting every country on the continent), which is 100% your strawman creation?" - Post #19
    2. Are all the EU citizens (in BB's post) buying only EU, also wanting UK citizens to suffer and detest the UK, or does it only work 1 way in your head? - Post #37


    Guess I'll be waiting now huh?
    Here's what I said before you started to deflect and try to twist:

    If they are buying British, that's good for the economy and good for the environment.

    Many of us have talked about doing that for ages, but that doesn't mean we detest every country in Europe and hope that all their citizens suffer. That's the difference.
    Am I wrong in saying that it is possible to buy British and not detest every country in Europe?
    Am I wrong in saying that it is good for the local economy and good for the environment to buy locally and seasonally?
    Is deliberately refusing to buy (or "avoid buying... at all costs") from certain countries and people because you want them to fail - is that a positive aspiration of "lots of Brexiteers" that PG knows?
    Are you able to speak on behalf of them?
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

          Perhaps he must imagine that because "lots of Brexiteers" think something, that it somehow follows that many other people in the world have another opinion, that the two are intrinsically linked and that somehow I am supposed to be all-knowing about how absolutely everyone thinks.

            Oh look, I directly answered your queries, then asked you to provide the same courtesy and instead, you've avoided my questions and asked some more of your own? There's a surprise.

            Come on, stop avoiding and answer mine now.

            I'll wait.

              You consider my question obvious and redundant. As is your attempt at trolling.
              and yet, I still answered it and then asked you to respond with direct answers to direct questions, as I did to you;
