    Calling the public stupid annoyed me, but yes that was very likely the most realistic thing in the program.

    The thing I have to always remind myself about with everything concerning politics and the powers in charge is that 'we' as the general public actually know nothing about what is really going on, we are only privy to what we are told by the media and they only know what the politicians want them to know. There are of course exceptions with whistle blowers revealing what 'we' 'the general public' are not intended to be aware of, but in general 'we' have no real knowledge of what goes on in the world.

    The problem is that public (state-regulated) education cannot keep up with the pace of change in society and that the constant bombardment of media are socially engineering us to believe certain things and behave in certain ways.
    The sad thing is we are welcoming this with open arms, hence why I recommend you re-read 1984, Fahrenheit 451 and watch the original "The Prisoner" series from the 60's.

    Part of being crazy is that you can't know you are crazy but if you live in a world where you are fed so much info that convinces you things are normal there is no will to escape.

    complete betrayal of the public vote as I expect this will now go to withdrawal of Article 50 or a second referendum, no mention of No Deal, WTO AND then trade discussions with EU. No Deal is a beginning, not the end of discussion, lets see what the next few days brings with Parliament. I won't hold my breath. Too many commas I know.

    That's the crunch. Second referendum, third, fourth, neverendum??? How to negotiate with parties that are split assunder? No deal is a disaster for the country, both politically and economically, but seems inevitable
    Then what????

    Why should anyone tell you when you’re too gutless to answer anyone else’s questions

    You're obsessed with me being a coward ant. Why don't you stop being a coward yourself for once in your life, and finally tell me why you think I am

    Because I’ve addressed questions to you four times and you’ve not replied to any of them. Granted they were feeble insults but enlighten me.

    Enlighten you over what? Why don't you just simply say exactly what it is you think makes me a coward????
