Subject: RE: BS: If I were a remainer...
I'd recommend embittered BrexShit supporters like Al to read this piece and the twenty essays it links to.

There are lessons to be learned from the disastrous debacle of BrexShit, and the article goes a long way to explain causes of the feelings of disenfranchisement and abandonment the Brexshitters clearly feel but which, as I've tried on many occasions to impress on Al, apparently without success, are more accurately attributable to the political systems, and domestic policies of successive governments here at home in the UK.

I don't believe any of the Remainers here claim that the EU is a perfect construct, but I do truly and firmly believe that the benefits it's given us - not the least being beneficial trade arrangements and agreements, harmonised customs arrangements, H&S Regulations, Employment Protection laws and, most of all, peace with our 27 partner-nations for the longest continuous period ever - hugely outweigh the 'hopes' on which Brexshiteers seem to have pinned their decision to vote Leave, and which I believe will prove eventually to have been futile.

But, as they say, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. I suspect there will be a few still-thirsty Brexit-dobbins coming along shortly, 'neigh-saying' this post.
