@kenralph People don’t really seem to care about anything unless it fits their narrative. Hard facts are dismissed as some sort of alternative truth
. Read the comments to the video and you still get all sorts of made up nonsense. Clearly the video has a bias but I scrolled through a fair few and the responses ranged from “don’t care” through to “you can make facts say anything”. One even thought we could only currently trade with 6% of the world - not heard that one before.
Before any Brexit supporters moan, as I proved on this thread there was some really ridiculous stuff made out by Remain. I also strongly disapprove of some of the inferences of that video where all Brexiteers are lumped together (the video should have made it clear which individuals inferred what. As for the Katy Hopkins bit I don’t see it as at all relevant. It’s one individuals sceptic opinion that most people in this country wouldn’t stand by.
I think this is perhaps the problem with the Brexit debate (or one of them). When pretty horrendous lies (as I pointed out with the bus on another thread, there was no need to lie) or statements are used alongside blanket terms for whole swathes of the population then people will kick back, and not always rationally. It all then just descends into farce.
