    I disagree. It is not absurd for people to want to control their own destiny especially when you see the EU is anti-democratic, authoritarian in nature, and always seeking to concentrate more power in it's own unelected hands. The UK really does want more free trade while the EU is highly protectionist in nature so it has always been a bad fit.

    For a long time Britain was usually seen as more level-headed, pragmatic. It's almost tragic to see it to suffer from that kind of ideological overload that seems to be all the rage in some parts of the pol_elite/media/etc. for years now.

    There could be plenty of legitimate points made re the EU or whatever, but the hysteria and division over Brexit is really an absurdity. And it does have a real impact - it completely dominates the political landscape and consumes time and effort that could be spend better elsewhere.

    Blarghl.

    Greece continues to shine as a paragorn of stability, responsibility and seriousness when compared to Great Britain. I shudder to think dinner supports such clowns of democratic charade.(don't care either way, just that it is so funny that whatever dinner supports ends up becoming a clown ) . On the point at hand, two questions: a) what is all this junk they have in their parliement? stolen goods from hard working people like the marbles of parthenon only it's sh!t? And also, what is this with the border in ireland. who wants it soft, who hard? (I'd suppose she would want it hard

    If they aren't going to vote for it, then they don't get a say in it!

    I believe that 1% of truth would be the day's date.

    Are you implying there is a 1% of truth hidden away in the U.K. press?

    Few in the U.K. believe the press* but the issue moreover is one of saturation. Repeat a lie over and over and over and you will think it true subconsciously due to a familiarity with the lie being conveyed, even if you hear it and know itís false at a conscious level the first x times.

    * more accurately, heavily sceptical and want to hear from more than one news source.

    The first thing after the fact was the Priest.
    Like:
    Fact:
    There was a big flash in the sky and suddenly this tree burns

    Priest:
    This was Thor/YHWH/Shiwa who expressed his displeasure ... you need to sacrifice 2 maidens and 10 pieces of livestock to her in my temple

    Fact:
    The small light that usually is seen in the sky is suddenly so dark

    Priest:
    That is Yughquash the world eater threatening us all. You need to sacrifice 2 maidens and 10 pieces of livestock in my temple in order to help YHWH/ Cthulhu / Odin fight Yughquash

    Fact:
    Last year there were lots of fruits on the plants ... this year there only is meagre harvest

    Priest:
    YOu know the drill ... already give me my 2 maidens and 10 pieces of livestock

    Both "Fact" and "Expert" are just made-up Remoaner terms. Like "Reality" or "Cause-and-Effect"

    in that video they talk about Greece I do think the brits thought that "what germany did to Greece" was reprehensible and this gave rise to brexit feeling. It's ok to don't like the germans call them nazis by some parts of the population, blame them for everything. That's easy. It's not easy to say, listen of course each country will try the best for it but that also the european construction is worth trying to be saved.
