a comment on a Guardian article:

Quote:
If Boris Johnson looked downbeat yesterday, that is because he realises that he has lost.

Perhaps many Brexiters do not realise it yet, but they have actually lost, and it is all down to one man: David Cameron.

With one fell swoop yesterday at 9:15 am, Cameron effectively annulled the referendum result, and simultaneously destroyed the political careers of Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and leading Brexiters who cost him so much anguish, not to mention his premiership.

...

The Brexit leaders now have a result that they cannot use. For them, leadership of the Tory party has become a poison chalice.

When Boris Johnson said there was no need to trigger Article 50 straight away, what he really meant to say was "never". When Michael Gove went on and on about "informal negotiations" ... why? why not the formal ones straight away? ... he also meant not triggering the formal departure. They both know what a formal demarche would mean: an irreversible step that neither of them is prepared to take.

All that remains is for someone to have the guts to stand up and say that Brexit is unachievable in reality without an enormous amount of pain and destruction, that cannot be borne. And David Cameron has put the onus of making that statement on the heads of the people who led the Brexit campaign.
While I relish Cameron's anguish and likewise relish the pickle that Bojo and Gove et al may be in, I wish they could have found a way to fight without fucking up the rest of us.

Thanks, Britain. Now we may well be facing some serious economic fallout and a whole new shitstorm in the north, not to mention some fresh encouragement for all those other racist assholes across Europe, just because a bunch of under-educated, small-minded, houseprice-worshiping racists have the fucking nerve to be worried about a handful of brown people wanting to come live there when not a wet weekend ago you were still colonizing the shit out of millions of them.

Oh and also some regulations that you will have to end up following anyway if you want to sell any of your shit to Europe. Now at a premium rate because we will be slapping a tariff on it.

Now you can go back to being an extra-territorial piece of US real estate like you were back in the eighties, because that was working out so fucking great for exactly the kind of whinging, sad-sack, closet-racist non-entities that voted leave, as Reagan and Thatcher trickled down on you and made you pretend it was raining.

Fucking retards.

Somehow I think this is such a total shitstorm that it will work against the racists in the rest of Europe. Wilders may be calling for a Nexit here but it is way less popular now than it was before.

But far right / ultranationalist / racist types are (a) stupid and (b) totally convinced in themselves. They will only get more vocal.

Sane non-isolationist people - who may still be a small majority in other European countries - may become more cautious, true.

I can only see greater divisions.

Just popping this here. We've kind of forgotten Nick Clegg (leader of the Lib Dems while in coalition with the Cons in the last parliament, ousted for breaking slightly more campaign promises than is normal).

Nick Clegg predicted the future with stunning accuracy

Is London really that close? We could have the Danes and Swedes build a bridge from Den Helder, they're good at that sorta thing.

London is not that close - if you move the red rump-UK over it, Kent would run over quite a bit of your nether regions.

Not saying that's a bad thing, just that it's not the current state of affairs.

Ah, I vaguely remember the LibDems - they used to be a political party at one time - I think I even voted for them once or twice.

The current LibDem leader said that if we elect a LibDem government :lol: then they will prevent Brexit.

Presumably some clever LibDem has invented a time machine, so that once they are elected and Brexit has already happened they can travel back in time to prevent it. Maybe they'll seek out BoJo's and Farage's mothers and arrange to prevent them being impregnated during the necessary week or so.

If only he could've predicted the result of forming a coalition with the Tories.

Should've been obvious, but then again I understand they're (European-style) liberals on economics, so they probably thought austerity was a good idea.

Racist incidents feared to be linked to Brexit result | Politics | The Guardian

Quote:
In Gloucester, Max Fras said he was in a Tesco supermarket on Friday night with his young son when a white man became agitated in the queue for the checkout and began yelling: “This is England now, foreigners have 48 hours to fuck right off. Who is foreign here? Anyone foreign?”

Fras said the man began quizzing people in the queue about where they were from. “He pointed at another gentleman in front of him and said: ‘Where are you from, are you Spanish? Are you Italian? Are you Romanian?’ And he said ‘No, I’m English’,” said Fras.

Yup. I think they (rightly and fairly) saw Jeremy Corbyn's performance while campaigning for the remain side as pathetic (I understand that most of the Labour is pro-EU, but Corbyn may have been Eurosceptic until he became leader). And now (self-servingly) they see a chance for power within the party.

Such fun.

Contrast:
Conservative PM Cameron resigned after campaigning to remain, and losing, in a mostly Eurosceptic party.

Labour leader Corbyn stays on but most of his shadow cabinet resign (or are fired), after hardly campaigning and losing, in a mostly pro-Euro party
