Complete tangent, but this reminded me about politics on reddit which I havn't delved into for about a year now.
So I had a look at /r/unitedkingdom /r/ukpolitics and /r/politics
Suffice to say, those subreddits become more and more intensely extreme the longer they exist. I remember when ukpolitics had a reasonable split between left / center / right. It was always majority left but there was some sensible discussion both ways.
Now it's just turned into a crazy place full of crazies. This is a very typical comment that is posted multiple times daily. "Brexiteers, this is what you voted for. Yours is the movement of anti-science, wishing death on children, fighting against climate change. Not to mention tax avoidance/evasion and blood diamond money laundering."
If anybody truly believes that is what half the country voted for, then I feel very sorry for them. How mentally far gone do you have to be to believe half the country voted for wishing death on children. I have already said that I would pretty much vote remain if I did it all again, but thinking that Brexit votes support the above is just absolutely delusional. 95% of us are normal nice people
Another gold quote off /r/unitedkingdom about Corbyn
"he has been, objectively, factually, the most influential person in politics for generations. but bbc will never say it so you will never think it"
