1. Vote for a thing which, at the time, seemed like a good idea. 2. Upon further investigation over several years, that thing turns out to be a terrible idea. 3. Refuse to pay any attention to #2. 4. Become obsessed with the definition of 'democracy', to avoid the real issues.

Tories / Hammond observing that 'Brexit betrayal' would 'damage society' is a bit rich. Brexit has been about the Tories betraying the country from the very beginning, and the damage is already done. All we can do now is minimise the Tory damage, by remaining in the EU.

It does occur to me that if Brexit is stopped, that there will be riots down in England. But at least they won't be because there's no food in the shops.

I don't understand holding to the "they're all the same!" argument in a post-Trump world. Not that I disagree with your broader point, but not voting and thus ending up with all the nice people in fascist-run prison camps is hardly a useful response to the problem. :/

Here is pioneering NHS transplant surgeon Paolo Muiesan quitting Britain after 26 years. Brexit has driven him away. When the NHS is *already* short of 10k doctors & 42k nurses. Johnson, Gove, Rees-Mogg, Raab - you are truly, stunningly selfish.

That's definitely been my experience since working at NCW, and especially while doing the podcast.

Why has the explosion of activism and interesting, new, diverse political faces that has happened in the US as a response to a trump not happened in the UK as a response to Brexit? We're still stuck with the same old, dull incompetents.

Reminder to people entering writing competitions - READ THE TERMS AND AGREEMENTS. The just had to intervene in a case where the organisers were claiming all publication and moral rights from ALL COMPETITION ENTRANTS. This is not normal.
