Can you tweek it to Nouveau National Socialist (at least it's an ethos), then I'll use it also.

Well, the only people I knew who voted Leave (O/H's parents) had happily admitted Voting BNP and National Front in the past. Can we add the £50bn to the tax bills of Leave voters and see how that goes?

How did we get to the point where Neo-Nazis are known as The Alt Right and anyone that opposes them is Hard Left? I was called a liar on PH for asking why we needed a referendum when polls showed only 30% of the population wanted to Leave.

And guess what happened.

We're fcked.

Disagree. Needless repetition of meaning!

Which reminds me.

Anyone from Kent on here?

Spent a couple years there some time ago. It struck me as a parochial shithole, particularly polarised in rich v poor. The middle classes adopted a Hyacinth Bucket approach to politics and everything else. Maybe being the front line over eons of invading forces from the continent made them instinctively suspicious. It was remarkable how normal it seemed for people to not know, or have the least interest in, their neighbours or neighbourhood. They seemed to think it would be intrusive to make friends with anyone who they didnt have to.

I'm in Kent (just), but your observations seem to relate to the South East in general in my experience.

I grew up in the Midlands which on the face of it was a more friendly, inclusive area, but on the flip side you've all already judged me and associated me with Birmingham and Dudley.

I think this is why Kent folk keep themselves to themselves - nobody wants to be associated with Chatham forex...


Yet us orrible Londoners very much voted Remain and you lovely Brummes very much voted Leave. Please don't think the whole of Kent is like Chatham. These are the shit hole satellite towns where the dimwitted Londoners and Brummies who wanted to get away from the influx of foreigners in the sixties and seventies went and ruined.

In my experience Brummies have a rather large chip on their shoulders about London, one the world's great Cities.

Thing is, plainly not all leave voters did previously vote BNP or NF. And it shows that one cannot rely on polls (if the previous 2 or 3 general elections had not already shown that).

In my view there were two critical flaws in the referendum:

1. It did not require a supermajority
2. It did not specify what form Brexit would take

Not doing these things pretty much guaranteed our current trajectory (i.e. a graceful parabolic arc, straight into the shit).

Part 2 is the kicker. So many shades of grey and everyone has a different interpretation. The Leave vote encompassed everyone from “Europe’s not all bad but I’d rather we left as I don’t like how the fishing quotas hurt our island” to “I HATE WOGS!”

The only people still shouting about it are the “patriots” so any moderates are drowned out.
