@Misto Amen. The moment the binary, all or nothing choice of remain or leave was put to to the people was the day this all went down the shitter. We are all biased, tribal and bigoted in our own ways, thats one of the reasons im sympathetic to the leavers argument regarding unfiltered immigration. Why on earth such a simple solution was put to the people regarding an unprecedented and complex scenario is beyond me.
And you are totally right. My mother always said that you have 2 ears and 1 mouth, that was wise advice pre 2016. That binary choice created 2 mouths and 0 ears. And if you use 2 ears and 1 mouth on centre ground you just end up getting inevitably caught in the crossfire and metaphorically punched from both sides. So maybe you are the wisest of us all in saying nothing.
It didnt end well for Theresa, as incompetent as she was i felt enormous sympathy for her today. She tried, i feel like she really did try even if im in a minority of 1. Some might say her tears were for herself. To me it felt like she knew we were not heading into a good place post her tenure. I feel more aligned with the centre right as a centre lefty than i do the fringes of either. With her now gone this is going to get much worse before or if it gets any better. On one side we are left with militant brexiteers who often have deep anarcho capitalist roots and a referendum result with which they can frame the discussion. Even without that leg to stand on they are naturally very persuasive. On the other side militant socialists. Fun times.
