So are the Remoaners

So are we all!

Trouble is that the majority don't want to be part of some European superstate (by 2025 is Schulz's condition for the SPD propping up Merkel's minority government) and the remoaners either think that the EU is pefect (far from it! or that they can change it (Cameron tried and failed). The EU is a power-hungry undemocratic trade cartel that wants to dictate is own terms to the rest of the world.

The point is, the Brexit camp had a far higher average age than the Leave hence the 'dying out' reference. Didn't you see the stats?

Name one 'remoaner' who has claimed the EU is perfect. No? Then leave your silly strawmen arguments in the Daily Mail.

I certainly don't think the EU is anything close to perfect. What most of us believe is that our current government (or as you pointed out, previous Tory governments) aren't capable of offering us anything better, or even offering us what they promised us. I have yet to be proven wrong. Yes I voted remain, but assumed if we did end up leaving we would get a far better deal than what we're currently looking at.

Pity those poor souls, marooned on that little island, with its bald, neckless, knuckle-dragging savages, their shrieking squaws and their regressive larvae offspring.

The inbreds seem to be rather oversensitive to some home truths(!)

Proper introspective analysis hasn't ever been on their skills list - never mind..
