While I agree that we cannot blame the media for brainwashing and the campaign by Remain was so incredibly weak I don’t think it’s fait to say that failure to accept benefits is ignorance or respect of anyone else’s opinions.
I think the concerns, as indicated by a pro-Leave government’s own impact assessments, are worrisome and were not what was presented at the time by those who promised us sunlit uplands as nations flock to complete deals on our terms and we can become a prosperous free trading nation on our own. Instead we have a FTA smaller than the UK itself and deals which are no better than before with some nations and nothing better with the EU itself. A far cry from what was told. There will of course be some benefit, but everything suggests that the negatives will outweigh them and I don’t see what is wrong with people thinking this, unless you’re opposed to people having a different opinion to you based on the reality.
All I can hope is that people like Bucks will have the courtesy to not make stab-in-the-back myths in a year’s time when Brexit has happened and if things are not looking rosy, especially as he lectures others on how disagreeing with him means they’re holding others with contempt. Unfortunately, my experience with Bucks is that he is an ideologue himself who will use the same tactics Gurnelista has used against him and JI.
