We live in an odd and dangerous time where building a consensus is now portrayed as a kind of weakness. There is such an overload of information I think people are building fantasy simplistic versions of reality in order to avoid engaging in reality. And i mean that on both sides. Corbyn, whatever people think of him, tried to get cross party consensus and find things on which people could agree to mover the deadlock, and he is not even in power. For three years the Tories have been arrogant and insular, refusing even to acknowledge that nearly half the country will still need to be represented after Brexit. For them it is power at all costs, and yet people delude themselves into thinking that a democratic and legal safeguard over the use of that power is somehow the work of the elite, when the elite are in the cabinet and have been for years.
The MSM here is overwhelmingly Tory and Ukip backing and so when there are checks and balances people freak out. Look at this from yesterday
I thought at first that it was just a fake news lefty meme, but you can check it out it is 100% genuine. No wonder people think it is OK to call people who voted remain 'traitors'. I have had years of it on here from people who do not even live here. How absolutely ridiculous to the point of farce is it, that a couple American posters, one who has even left over his right to say it
have joined in, considering their history, and rightful delight at being free from British rule? Insane.
So having Boris, who lets make no bones about it, is a complete bastard, pretending that pooh poohing death threats to MPS, and then claiming Jo Cox who was murdered by someone shouting 'This is for Britain'
who saw her as a traitor to white people, would have wanted his form of No Deal Brexit. What the actual fuck? The bloke who killed her was not only a fascist, he was obsessed with Nazis. People would have you believe he was a unicorn, but there are plenty like him. They see no hypocrisy in their traitorous outlook,, because of people like Boris and Mogg, and even Trump across the water.
It is bloody horrible.
