    It's not a rant it's a counterargument, something you really should expect in SC. You have responded with no citation, because you simply can't back up a word you say. Your posts and your prejudice belong in the Conspiracy Theory thread in GD.

    Have we had the list of things that @ebilcake found were factually incorrect yet?

    No, he's still on his customary gishgallop, with his fingers in his ears.

    It's the critical thinking method taught at the University of Life apparently, "How to believe whatever you like, and protect fragile and fallacious worldviews".

    Can I ask you a question?

    If someone said to you "I think my eyesight could be dodgy, do you think I should go for a drive to check it out?" would you have to ask whether they voted remain or leave before you could give an opinion?

    I think they're also paying the Guardian and other papers as part of a campaign, though considering how awful the press is, it ends up being biased.

    Normal? Probably. Is it right for them to do so? YMMV :)

    I fail to see how we would have done any worse with me in charge!

    Yup.

    "But Denmark have done exceptionally well, and we've done pretty much worst in the world!"

    "I told you we can't make international comparisons!"

    I was having a read of the Telegraph comments section there..

    Oh my, the Dominic Cummings fiasco really has brought out the fascists.

    Quite frightening how short fused the rabid right are when the tables are turned.

    If the word on the street doesn’t support the Brexit club, not only is it inconvenient, but is cause to grab the pitchforks and attack the “liberal left”. Hundreds, thousands, possibly millions of people unprepared to compromise an ideology formed by the same media they attack for reporting the DC story.

    The right do seem to be a little fragile when people disagree or challenge their world view, their heroes or their position.

    I do wonder who the crystalised ice formations really are...

    I'm sorry, what is it you think I'm supposed to be outraged at here?

    One of the two worst countries in the world. You need a better defence.

    Tribal to the end, thankfully it's a minority opinion.

    2nd worst PM in UK history has now come out against Cummings.

    I find it practically impossible to discern who the 2nd worst PM of this country would be, so many could be awarded that accolade.
