The dissident group that refuses to accept that the die is cast look to be well established in that area! Sefton Delmer will be smiling in his grave.
The BBC suffered heavy pressure from the government of the day over using the term "Quisling", which was a correct naming of a man who endangered his country's future, seems to me the constant reference to "supporters of brexit" is a slur to cause civil unrest!
Move on, for the sake not only of the country, but also for personal mental health welfare, sounds like paranoia? TTFN MM
Yet according to you, all civil unrest was the fault of the EU, not internal failures and policies!
Secondly, the challenging of lies and untruths is extremely important. In the present dishonest Government, we have a corrupt and dishonest Government negotiating underhand deals with an even more corrupt and dishonest US Government. Challenging untruths such as "The EU is to blame for civil unrest", "EU immigration and the rest of the world is about 50/50" is essential.
Here is an example. IN one week CNN exposed 81 lies by Trump in one week
. We need the same sort of scrutiny her of Johnson's lies
The "Leave campaign love the "insult" remainer and regularly bleat this to avoid any sensible, coherent or constructive discussion, Brex$hiteers was bandied around, but never took off in the same way
Leavers and Remainers is a reference to an old vote, and there are some 50 million to whom that name does not apply
Supporters of Brexit is perfectly descriptive, appropriate and neutral
As for "uniting" the problem is that there are still lots of concerns, questions, problems and pitfalls to come. Unfortunately, the concept of "Uniting" is toeing the line and dreaming of Unicorns grazing in an Elysian field connected by roads paved with gold, and is inappropriate.
UNiting means having a sensible conversation for the good of the country, listening to the real issues and problems, and coming to the best position possible given the terms.
The thing preventing this is the dismissal of anything that is not rabidly pro-Brexit is dismissed out of hand as "Project Fear", "remainers" etc.
