Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Picked up from a FB thread yesterday...

”Listening to Brexiteers now is horribly like listening to my late mother when she was almost convinced she'd been scammed by a cowboy roofer but couldn't bring herself to admit it. She said 'I may have been overcharged but it's my money. I can do what I like with my money. Anyway, I like the result. I don't care.' She said 'I'm doing it for you and the children because it will increase the value of the house when I die'. She didn't admit to herself that she'd been scammed until it was too late to cancel the cheque. Now I'm hearing 'We voted to leave, just get on with it'. ' I don't care about the arguments, I just want us to leave and move on. We've chosen and that's that. No ifs or buts.' The scammers will pick up their money and run unless the scam victims recognise in time that they have been tricked. There's no shame in admitting that you've been conned by highly-skilled experts.”

Sounds pretty much on the button to me.
