Itís ridiculous terminology full stop. The way we discuss politics online has become far too tribal. I barely post anywhere online because itís futile really, but we really should hold one another to basic standards of decency and not lower ourselves to the regressive attitudes espoused by too many people of all political shades.

So youíre are suggesting sensible political discourse.

Trust me. Many of us have tried it but you canít reason with people who who fundamentally, donít like facts or canít present facts of their own.

If this country is going down the toilet because of ignorant people, I will have my fun with them as compensation at the very least.

Ok fooman, I get that frustration. Iíve been on here for years, longer than most prominent current posters Iíd wager, but I read and very rarely post. Politically we probably agree on a lot of things so donít assume Iím having a pop at you personally, but how is ridiculing ignorant people going to win them over? Believe me, I know there are some irredeemable bellends on here that would argue black is white, but if you can put forward consistent and coherent arguments, surely you stand a better chance of convincing people of opposing views, possibly the lurkers who donít post often but are interested in the political discussions?

Just because some vocal windbags might shout you down doesnít mean other people donít listen, you just might never know they listened... but I believe the way we conduct ourselves has a massive impact on how we influence people, even more so online where sometimes it can be very difficult to understand the nuance in what is being said.

I have serious posts on brexit as well but unfortunately they soon get hijacked by angry brextemists unhappy at reporting factual information. In fact even some of my most trivial threads on football and sandwiches get them frothy mouthed just because I wrote them.

Happy to debate any point in a civil manner with any leaver if they are reasonable.

The rest I canít help but poke fun because itís impossible to have an intelligent conversation with them. [:D]

Fair points fooman.

I think some pro-brexit voters have very strong arguments, but certainly not irrefutable ones. I donít believe most of the 51.9% were xenophobes or bigots. But Iíd also say Iíve rarely seen any decent pro-brexit arguments on here or elsewhere so Iím confident in my pro-EU stance. Although recent political events make it highly unlikely that a 2nd referendum will occur, so when we leave itís in our interests to make it work as best we can, as galling as it is at the moment to those of us that would prefer to remain.

I think the idea is that in a liberal society we want to know what's going on in the world, so we can engage with it and challenge it if necessary. "Making their disgusting views mainstream" (if that isn't something you've made up) is an unintended consequence of this, in the same sense as making religious extremism possible is an unintended consequence of religious freedom. You may prefer an authoritarian society, but I don't know how much appetite there is for that generally.

You can't debate with a yellow vest.

It's just,

Take control of our borders! (we do anyway)
Sovereignty! (We are sovereign)
European army. (NATO)
Will of the people! (Will of some people, and they can't decide what brexit they want)
They need us more than we need them! (Obviously they'll suffer too, bit nowhere near on the scale we will)
Leave means Leave! (Nonsensical slogan)
350 million a week to the NHS instead.(Ain't happening)
Don't like living under their laws. (Although they can't name a single law they don't like)
Blue passports! (Righto)
WTO rules! (No country on earth trades solely on WTO)
Our fish!(We lose 70% of our haul that we sell to the EU)
End of freedom of movement! (They are unaware it works both ways)
No backstop! Hard border in Ireland! (Return to the "troubles" or civill war as I prefer to call it, and the good Friday Agreement finished)
Farmers will be better off!(Precisely the opposite, 40% hike in meat tariffs, no more EU subs)

I could go on and on.

Can someone please give one tangible benefit of leaving the world's largest peace and free trade organisation? Because I haven't heard a single one in two and a half years.

It was a simple observation I made, whilst in town yesterday, that these incoherent angry men in high-vis had few teeth.

If they can't look after something as basic as their own oral hygiene, I think it would be ill advised to follow their advice on something as serious leaving the EU.

The EU receives £8600m NET contributions from the UK. To me its a lot of money maybe not to you.

We are running a considerable trade deficit with the EU hence if a deal is not done the EU countries have more to lose.

The EU is a low economic growth area e.g Italy is in recession (without BREXIT).

EU regulation on data has put a considerable cost burden on many businesses.

Eventually we will have to join the Euro as countries become similar within the EU. The EU is a federal state without borders in theory.


The EU is also fortress Europe it is very protective of its farmers - 40% of its budget is spent on them.

Personally I am happy for hard working intelligent young people to come to the UK from all over the world including non-radicalised people of the muslim faith.

Too much power is centralised both in the EU and in the UK.


I like the idea of free trade within Europe and for people to move about and mix, but not enough to justify the problems with the EU as a political, social and economic entity. In my experience the UK is the most racially tolerant country in Europe. Germany is supposed to be, but its very hard to become a German Citizen if your family say was from Turkey. Nazis types are crawling out of the woodwork in Germany in a modern format see You Tube for their masked nightime torch light marches.
