I think the difference with the 2016 people's vote is that the losers were mainly people who are used to being taken notice of in our society, used to getting their way a lot of the time, being influential, and often used to having others obey them in the course of their daily lives as employers, MPs, managers, supervisors, teachers, council officers etc.
They are finding it hard to cope with a majority going against their wishes, especially a majority they believe to be socially, educationally and culturally inferior. For a minority of these people this causes them to sound angry, confused and contemptuous as they vent their frustration at being ignored. Richard Dawkins is good example of this phenomenon.
That's just nonsense.
It's nothing like that and all to do with simple incredulousness at how easily you were taken in.
You fell for it hook line and sinker and I'm personally astonished by how folk were played - I seriously thought people were better than that but then I forgot about the falling IQ of the mob which given it's a basic tenet of human behaviour doesn't say a lot for me either.
I stared in disbelief at a group of people who think they're "taking back control" whilst trying their hardest to hand it over to a teeny group of elites.
I don't remember any leavers cheering when the governments attempt to remove power from parliament and hand it over to the executive was blocked by the high court - which makes a nonsense of one of their bigger claims.
I reckon you guys actually want to be serfs, perhaps as long as those in power can scratch the backs of their mates and pocket cash in their tax havens you're actually happy as long as nobody is pointing out what's happening?
There's no doubt that outside of the EU and its threatened clamp down on tax evasion, environmental concerns, work/life balances etc along with leaving the HCHR us serfs are in a worse position than we were before.
Nope, incredulous sums it up for me.
Richard Dawkins champion of remain, out sized IQ etc, he has to be kept under the carpet though because of his views on religion, particulary Islam.
