Lied to wholesale by the leave campaign.

Told we would easily get loads of trade deals,

Told that there would be tons of extra money for the NHS.

Told that a large queue of dark-skinned refugees, depicted on a poster, had something to do with EU immigration.

Irish border issue hardly referred to at all.

No-deal dismissed as impossible, thereafter scarcely referred to.

Unelected prime minister, with no public mandate, prorogues parliament in order to obstruct debate on brexit at the most crucial point in the process.

This unelected prime minister is at the head of a minority government.

An unelected Downing Street insider is apparently calling all the shots. Not too much of a stretch to suppose that he's actually running things, as his latest action in sacking an adviser without reference to that adviser's cabinet minister, would suggest.

This unelected prime minister, in charge of a minority government with no mandate for no-deal, is now accusing ELECTED representatives of the people of making no-deal more likely, when, in reality, it's his pig-headed do-or-die insistence on Halloween that's the only threat

Just bloody sayin'.
