I can't help thinking the local paper knew they were going to get these kinds of responses...

Heh. Classy! "Thick as pigshit" has a certain ring to it, huh. :D

His competence as a spokesman is entirely compatible and commensurate with his ex-employers' as a would be PM. Great recruiting skills, there.

I commented on twitter that it is a bold statement by someone with a BA in Anthropology and Political science and received a rebuke via DM by someone with a BA in Anthropology and Political science

That was pretty much it. Still, at least it wasn't psycology

Gah, that article annoyed me, especially given polling results suggesting it was a factor. Most people aren't single issue voters anyway.

And this whole thing about "x% of remainers respect the outcome" is a sly trick that's starting to grate. I respect the outcome, just as I respect the outcome of the general election or when Parliament passes a crap bill. Doesn't mean I have to agree with it, cease trying to change people's minds, or overturn it.

The problem as far as I can see is that even if say 70% came round to the idea that Brexit is just a terrible idea and wanted the outcome of the referendum overturned the outcry from the other 30% would be more divisive than whatever expensive fudge they eventually do come up with. And it would never, ever go away. The UKIP types would become an even louder and uglier voice than they already are, believing themselves to have had their victory stolen. I just can't see any way back from it.

I'm looking forward to being repeatedly told that the eventual deal is all the fault of Brussels and the EU, rather than, say poor planning on the part of the government.

To some extent, but not entirely. There's still a sizeable number of leave voters who will still be alive even after we're in the ground. Also it would be difficult to predict how public opinion would go if a huge section of the population were more or less dedicating their lives to blaming every bad thing that happens on our continued membership of the EU.

Put it this way, if we were leaving the EU as a result of a referendum do-over then I think I'd probably be even more fucking livid about it than I am now. So imagine every leave-voting tosser with that kind of fire in their belly. The only way we can ever get back to where we were is in twenty years or so.
