I am constantly facing VERY angry people who tell me we're destroying the UK. Whilst we try to have a reasonable discussion, to give our viewpoints and what knowledge we have, they won't listen. Today, a friend of mine of 15 yrs, ex policeman, 6.1" to my 5'1", tore into me and said he was REALLY ANGRY at the stupid people, racists and layabouts that didn't know what they were voting for. He said Farage is a racist, and he has lots of money, and he'll be OK, whilst the stupid bought the crap about the NHS. He said the racists are having a go about those poor African men who want the chance to have a better life (and later on he said how come they're all men, traffickers are making a fortune out of them, and immigration means they should stay in the country that gives them asylum rather than trying to get to UK). He said we have rules about immigration, but we let all sorts stay here, yet the Europeans, any of whom are over-qualified, do jbs here our own people won't do. He said the fishermen won't get their waters back. There were lots of points I tried to discuss and he said we are destroying UK, we'll have high unemployment like 1970's, Trump won't want to buy from us and will put tariffs on what we buy: chlorinated chicken etc. He said the BBC ISN'T biased, but Twitter and FB ARE biased in favour of whatever side you are on. I asked what he thought we should be doing, and he said STAY. I mentioned about the Replacement Agenda, which he didn't believe, and that many Europeans want out - he said that's not true, and I should watch the BBC prog Brexit behind the scenes where I'd see how the Europeans hate us, and think we're a laughing stock. I had had their hospitality for the weekend, and was in their house, and it was difficult to have my say. I said even if you think people were fooled they have a RIGHT to say they are not happy with what is going on, and it is a shot across the boughs for the career politicians that won't listen to us. He said the idiots that voted to Leave have NO right to destroy it all for everyone else, and the majority was just over 1m so that's not enough. He said he wants to stay otherwise they should agree on the Withdrawal Agreement, which he sees no problems with. I just shut my mouth in the end, but it leaves a nasty taste in my mouth. This couple are very good friends of mine, that run their own business, and both have children whose future they say they are fearful for. Democracy isn't something they're too bothered about. Last Thursday I heard from another bloke that leavers are stupid, and we should stop using 'democracy' as way to destroy the country. He said the Referendum wasn't legally binding and can be ignored, but May decided to run with it. He thinks it should be ignored and we just stay. I said the Brits are trying to fight the EU dictators, and it is NOT about the European people, but the likes of Merkel & Juncker that decide they can do what they want with every country. I said the British bulldog spirit is strong in the Leavers, and it's the same spirit of the Brits tht fought in WW2. He said something to the effect that we should be ashamed of ourselves, and that those in WW2 would be ashamed of who we are. I said Macron's bullies in France, beating innocent people and tear gassing them is reminiscent of the Vichy and Nazis in WW2, and it will only get worse. He said I am deluded. I give up trying to take a stand against these bullying Remoaners, who care only for themselves. I say, Do YOU have a crystal ball to confirm these bad things will happen or are you listening to Project Fear, and the BBC?" and these Remoaners kick off on me!
