Steve Shaw BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK? (576* d) RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK? 18 Apr 19

"Once again, a remain supporter (Steve Shaw) states, quite clearly that those who voted 'leave' were either racist, or ignorant.
If I were to state that those who voted remain were all dickheads, I would expect to be chided for disparaging their views (even though they were in the minority). The majority view here ( not representative of the UK people) is being accepted as the majority view of the UK people.

Thing is, Nigel, I do think that most of the people who voted leave did so either out of ignorance or because they are racists. I could, by saying that they were xenophobes rather than racists, to soften the blow, but to be honest there's no difference. The point is that I gave you closely-argued reasons for my opinion. Fine if you want to call remainers dickheads. First, that isn't equivalent. Second, I've yet to read YOUR closely-argued reasons. And one more time, Nigel. You appear to be insinuating that belonging to a majority makes you right. I'd just remind you that a majority, at least to begin with, supported Adolf Hitler. A shaky argument then, Nigel. "Belonging to a majority" accords you no moral high ground.
