Gurney said : ‘Yet, the whole Brexit exercise has been based on soundbites, fantasies and downright lies. It’s been like an illegal advertising campaign for a non-existent product, which has left the ‘leavers’ in love with an idea or fantasy, rather than anything tangible which would improve their daily lives.

That’s why, when Brexiters are asked for their reasons, most say exactly what AWG and others have said on here, with ‘arguments’ which aren’t supported by the facts at all. That’s because it’s hard to deny the power of the charlatan who has gained your trust / confidence. Once he has gained that, he has control over you for many years, since to break free is to admit you’ve been had. It’s like with strong religion.
True, the argument for ‘remain’ wasn’t made effectively. It’s always harder to defend the status quo. You could tell everyone about the advantages of membership, but if others can show that the UK pays in more than it gets back, even just £100, and circulate a lie about an immigrant accordion player getting benefits to repair to his bellows, it makes for shocking headlines in the populist sections of the media, the twitter trolls are mobilized to punch down even harder on their keyboards, while the Greek chorus on here pipes up with renewed vigour.
So, in the end, we should blame the liars for their deceit and cunning, not the lied to. Show some compassion for the conned, and all that. It’s Xmas after all.’
And this from the one who resorted over a lengthy period on the non football section to propounding the theory, with no explanation or justification, that myself and at least one other poster were the same person posting under different names. A conspiracy theory devised to stifle my voice because he didn’t like my views and openness. It meant that he could associate me with all sorts of views that I never voiced … so avid a pursuer of truth and righteousness is our Gurney. Even several of the regular posters there seemed uncomfortable with the tactic but, apart from BRI who seemed to find it distasteful, the only other voices suggested I shrug it off and ignore him. I chose to stay off the Bru .. I’m not a regular poster anyway .. but reading the above was too much. You are are a hypocrite Gurney. Like those you purport to despise .. those twisters and exploiters who further their self centred cause .. you are so into your virtuous ideological stance that you can justify, probably even to yourself, behaving like them. Pass the sick bucket someone.
