Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
It really is time those who genuinely support Brexit started to enter into this debate rather than using it as a rabid-right soapbox
I've lost count of the number of times people have asked what the benefits of leaving Europe are as distinct from staying and trying to change what they disagree with - Britain has been little more than a silent and begrudging member of the EU since day one, based on the old Empire adage, "If we can't control it, it's no use to us"
Now the Government has Britain's future in the hands of scummy populists like Farage (and his queue of be-robed and be-turbaned foreign invaders)
Patriots like the Mudcat incumbents, stand by and cheer the worst elements of the British establishment claiming that to hold out for the best deal is 'treachery'
None of them has the gumption nor the imagination to put forward a rational argument - just abuse (as shown by the latest deeply thought out offering)
If Britain can sell planes to slaughter the Yemenis (while at the same time blocking any chance of giving the victims refuge) Corbyn's actions of supporting the Palestinians fight against ethnic cleansing put him in line for sainthood
