    I wouldn't say it was widespread but there's been enough incidents that it's an issue in some communities. I wouldn't have thought so, no. In fact, just ... no. There's no chance of that happening. Let's just say we're not in favour of this sort of thing.

    Let me wind that back a little. I didn't mean to cause offence. I'm not having a jab at you. It's kind of okay for us to write about this in any way we want on here. I have no issue with the way you write. What's a problem is the way that people in the UK/European Commission are handling all...

    This is why it's such a shit show. That two political bodies cannot find agreement on something important. I don't know why I'm surprised really. And the other reason it's a shit show is that you'll always get people ridiculing those with a different view. You used the words 'flat earth'. This...

    Again, it's speculation. On the one-hand we've complicated trade with the EU. But we may have simplified it with USA, China, Japan, Australia etc. I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you, but I don't know that the UK being outside of the EU is worse for the UK as an importer or the EU member...

    @Dostoevsky isn't wrong. And nor is he necessarily right. There's two sides to this, and neither exist in isolation.

    You might be right. But even if that's true it's hard to see this as an overall positive. 1547827019 Oh, yeah, there will be a shit-show. I agree. There won't be a hard border in Ireland though. It's probably the only thing every political party will agree on.

    We may. We may not. It could be a case of there's some positives and some negatives. On the one-hand it could be great to be free of the EU's bureaucracy, and not having to throw billions of £'s at them - but only if we don't replace those systems with something worse. And there's no guarantee...

    There's no way of selling it. I've amended your statement above with some words in caps as to how it will come across to half the population. This is on Cameron's head for not doing his job, there shouldn't have been a referendum. We voted for Parliament to make decisions. Now they have to...

    They may just have to jump off the cliff. This literally is a no win situation. If there's a second referendum then Parliament are basically saying "fuck democracy, you'll keep voting until you give us the answer we want." And if we don't, we'll basically be leaving on crappy terms, and with...

    British politics is fucked. May tries to please everyone, which she should know is impossible, and just ends up alienating everyone - even her own party. She's got no backbone. And Corbyn just disagrees with everything without offering any actual alternative policy or solutions. We kind of...

    Agree with this. It's most plausible explanation of motive. The quality of life in Russia is very poor in comparison with every other 'first world' country. The Russia vs The West narrative is one which keeps the focus away from their own real problems. Also the EU, NATO and the UN seem...

    I just don't understand what Russia gain from this? I mean it's pretty serious - the attempted murder of civilians on NATO soil using illegal chemical weapons. How does this end well?
