Hah. Just as we suspected, Nigel. You are an aficionado of confirmation bias.
I don't know how you can assume that from the fact that I don't read the Guardian. But I do read news from numerous, divergent, sources (NOT including the Daily Mail).

There is a lot of confirmation bias on this site, mainly from those who seem to act as a pack to shout down anyone who appears to oppose what they think is a true understanding.

Leavers don't automatically assume the worst of those in favour of remain. But remainers are quick to claim that anyone supporting Leave is either ignorant, racist, or protecting their own financial interests. That is despite the fact that in doing so they are bracketing more than half of the voting public with those terms.
