Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
No probs, pete. I know I started this thread but I don't claim to own it. Brexit is of course massively tied up with the election so I can't see an issue with bringing the election into it. Tangential issues that have been done to death over several years are a different matter. And persistently trying to bring them into this thread is barefaced trolling. We shouldn't be surprised. Anyone who is signed up here is free to start their own thread. Now it's pretty undeniable that there was a large element of xenophobia whipped up in the referendum campaign, and it's legitimate to bring it here. It is not legitimate to jump in with a load of opportunistic whataboutery. I suggest that no-one responds to it in this thread. Let's hope the mods agree and that we can keep the thread afloat.
