    Imagine being such a colossal ***** that you tweet that about having some flavoured milk thrown at you, when your side (and I'm saying sides as Farage seems to be attributing the milkshake throwing to the remain side) actually shot and killed someone.

    The replies have it covered in spades but this is the same guy that said he would pick up a rifle and head to parliament if brexit wasn't delivered. Now he's calling extremism because someone threw a milkshake at him.

    Also the same guy that said it wouldn't be over if remain won 52 - 48.

    He's a horrible, hypocrital, conniving con man.

    To be fair to him there was never any doubt that Leave has it's fair share of radical morons, with him at the helm. Maybe he's just surprised that the nice side would do this to him. ;)

    Well to be fair to him, we're now three years on and it's nowhere near to being 'over' when leave won 52-48.

    Of course it would have been over by now if remain had won 52-48 though.

    That's not what Farage said though.

    Yes, it would be have been long over. I can't believe it's STILL dragging on when the decision was clear. Democracy when it's convenient it seems.

    Just because you don't like something doesn't mean you can continually sabotage everything until you get your own way. Which is what has been going on.

    Lol there you go again back to square one and lying again. Yes, I did call you a liar. There is no clarity. Leavers can't even agree what leave means. ERG are voting down a withdrawal agreement that would actually see us leave the EU. Farage wants us to stay in limbo because that is what benefits him and his Russian benefactors, and Corbyn has so many splinters in his backside from sitting on the fence this entire time he toots like a woodpipe when he farts.

    We voted to leave, that means leave. Not leave but actually stay in. The question was leave or remain. If they got on with it from day one without constant toys being thrown out of the pram by people who lost, it would be sorted by now.

    Unfortunately, leave sold a lie, and while those with an ounce of common sense could see it was a lie, Mr herp derp in the street did not. The last three years have been about trying to make a cheese submarine, being unsatisfied with its performance, and instead of acknowledging the stupid decision, blaming the people that tried instead for not trying hard enough.

    Cancel the whole thing as an act of idiocy and be done with it.

    But that goes the other way too. With people blindly putting trust in the EU...

    So I guess the dumb and smart people on both sides balanced each other out. Or are we just going to be ignorant and assume everyone who voted to leave is a racist knuckledragger?

    So if its blind when putting your trust in the the status quo of the EU with 40 years of evidence to go on ... what is it then when you're putting your trust in an undefined future that no-one on the same side can even agree with the way to proceed 3 years after they won the vote?

    I never mentioned racism, or indeed knuckledragging. However, if you vote for a cheese submarine, then you are pretty stupid in believing whoever told you it was going to work. Brexit is the same, a fundamentally bad idea that is destined to be worse than not doing it, and I say that as someone who is certainly not an eu fanboy.

    Heh, Hesletine has just had the party whip removed by stating he would support the Lib Dems in the EU elections :p

    The Tory implosion over Europe continues.

    Except that plenty of toys have been thrown by those that won like the ERG.

    The WA would have been enacted already if it hadn't been for the ERG, DUP and other Tory MPs voting it down.

    False equivalence from you again, whether it's sincere and ignorant, or intelligent and dishonest.

    The Leave side was less intelligent, less educated, and more easily conned by lies - all proven by scientific study, regardless of whether you chose to accept the fact.

    ... And that might be connected to the problems you're having with that disconnect between insisting the vote was clear, and not being able to tell us which Brexit was clearly voted for. For instance - was it the one Farage told you about just before the vote, or was it a prescient vote for the completely different one he's now duping you into believing you voted for instead? And both of those fantastical Brexits are just 2 of a myriad of misguided dreams held by people who still today can't agree which version their pooled, but mutual exclusive votes supposedly give a mandate for.

    Nevertheless, Farage is selling another con, where he says you can carry on indulging your bigotries if you buy into his Brexit betrayal myth. He's calling you stupid to your face. Are you going to oblige the swindler a 2nd time?

    :D

    Forgive us for taking solace in a bit of a laugh at your expense - we'll be bailing you all out for this folly for years.

    Yes of course it was. By science, real science on social media.

    No I'm totally agreeing with you.
