The definition of irresponsibilty. They dont have a clue what their vote might mean for the rest of us and then bleat and shift the blame when it bites them on the arse. I hope the French taxman takes them to the cleaners and theyre frogmarched to the nearest port for not having residency. Tossers.

That is a funny thread, although I strongly suspect that it is satirical.

Stanley Johnson was one of the first British MEPs and has always been staunchly pro-EU. He campaigned for Remain during the referendum.
I'd forgotten about his pro-EU history and actually don't remember mention of him being an MEP!

I think his son was of similar mind, until he realised that Opportunity Knocked if he backed the other side.

Is that a polite way of saying "bullshit"?

It's got a lot of plausible language in it... but you have to wonder how so much happened all on one day... and he lost me when he said the son's boss had got in touch by WhatsApp to ask if the proposed visit was "an urgent family matter". Surely all too much.

It is :D

Looked like someone spinning a yarn to me, gradually getting wilder and wilder with their claims as they realise they are going viral.

They’ve only had four years, idiots, I’d have been on to it from day one, if I had been in their position.

So freedom of movement ends and guess what?

I posted at 41540. No one appeared interested. Apparently all the Brexiteers must be content thereby demonstrating that immigration was just a convenient tool to engineer an exit whereby the likes of JRM could make a further personal fortune. No sign of Farage recommissioning his Bus with Hong Kong tippexed in.

Absolutely, started with an air of realism but has descended into farce. Perhaps the “author” is looking for a publicist to pick up the story and publish his new fictional comedy. It’s quite funny though.
It is quite funny and they know how to tell a story.

You could be right - I did a bit of background research and couldn't find any reference to the author or the series of books he claims to have written. Add in a stock image as a profile photo and I am dubious. Authors have to be shameless self-publicists.

It could be true, or based upon truth, but I am somewhat sceptical.

I have read through some of the replies on Twitter and comments on FB - lots of remainers slagging off Brexiters for being thick, uneducated, morons, unable to understand anything, not checking facts etc. If this is indeed satire and they have fallen for it...:D

As predicted, RSArcher has jumped the shark with his fake story. He gained 100k followers, so maybe a book is imminent...

So, I have seen some remainers on social media decrying the stupidity of Brexiters and going on about lack of education, low intelligence, inability to grasp complex issues, failure to critically analyse information. While, of course, falling for a cock and bull story that they failed to analyse critically.

But, this does reinforce the idea that, on both sides of the debate, to be fair, too many people hear only what they want to hear and look for things to reinforce their worldview rather than encourage debate and discussion. Much easier to call people remoaners or gammons and argue against stereotypes and caricatures instead of arguing with individuals who have their own reasons for thinking as they do.

A process of 'othering' where you assume that all members of a group think the same and, sadly, this assumption usually assigns the worst possible characteristics to everyone in that group - unfortunately, social media encourages this by its very nature.

"London is assessing whether the advantages of the European bloc’s bargaining power to strike deals with international drugs companies outweigh the broader political desire to sever ties with Brussels, UK officials said."


You seriously could not make that up :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:
