Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Not responding necessarily to that last post.


The mantra of brexiteers for the last three and a half years has been "we won, you lost, get over it." Clearly, they forgot that they got just over a third of the electorate and about a quarter of the country as a whole, but hey ho. Arsenal were beaten by Liverpool this evening, so came out with nothing whereas Liverpool came out with everything. Yet the thing was decided by the very last kick of a penalty shootout. As narrow a victory as is possible to achieve in the beautiful game. Well I don't live life like that. Passionate and tribalistic Liverpool fan that I am, I saw the merits of the young Arsenal team and will be looking out for them in future matches. I think that's pretty fair. Brexiteers are ultra-tribalists. They IGNORE the sixteen-plus million who voted remain. We are remoaners and we don't count and we should shut up about it. Well no we shouldn't. If leavers regard their precious referendum result as sacred, they should now have the humility, the conscience and the confidence to let the people have another say. I mean, lads, what are you scared of? That the will of the people doesn't coincide with yours any more?
