On here? If thatís what you mean then Iím not particularly surprised - this is a heavily Remain supporting area and online people run their mouth (yes, me included).
Iíve been lurking here for many years before the boredom of lockdown pushed me into posting; even though back at work Iím still doing it. Iíve seen the arguments go back and forth over Brexit, here and everywhere else.
Itís getting late at night and Iím at the end of a 15 hour shift so Iím going to leave it and go home. But this whole ďBrexiters were treated badlyĒ argument - you won. You won and then rammed it down the losers throats like a street fighter. Frankly that pissed off and alienated a lot of people who were otherwise aware that it was a democratic vote, and accepting the result is the price you pay for not living in a police state. A lot of us did accept the result, and since then have had to endure being told that we're traitors for not supporting Brexit.
But what is Brexit? No single version of it can command a majority across the whole Leave community, so the only thing that brings you together is No Deal.
Iím tired and rambling. You won. You promised us it would be ok. And look where we are now, no further forward as a society. It pisses me off, because Remainers and the EU are still being blamed for *everything*. No one on the Leave side is considering whether maybe theyíve messed up thus far, at all.
