Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The majority view here (not representative of the UK people) is being accepted as the majority view of the UK people.

You do not know what the view of the majority of people hold on this issue. Nor do I. Nor does anyone on here. The referendum was a snapshot of people's views 3 years ago and even then we did not know what the majority view of the UK people was. All we can say is that of those who voted, a few more voted to leave than did not. We do not know why people voted as they did. We do not know the views of those who did not or could not vote. We do not know how people would vote given another chance. We do not know new voters views. How can you possibly say that remain is not the view of the majority of UK people? Putting it in capitals does not make it any more true.

And FWIW being called a dickhead if far preferable to being told I should be shot or fuck off and live in Europe.
