If you thought I was a reasonable chap and weren’t trying to insult me, why call me a bitter old man and make out I am duplicitous for daring to disagree with Brexit? I have always been clear that I think this is a bad course for the country, and can give reasons why I think this, yet you make out believing such is inherently evil. Just as the hard left do with you for being a Tory. You make this further clear by saying that being anti-Brexit makes you part of some left wing cabal, insinuating that disagreeing with its evident glories is somehow an extremist position. As if daring to hold a different view of what’s good for the country is somehow duplicitous. I can hear the 99% hooting about how I am in a left wing cabal when he has characterised me as defending my Tory mates. Just goes to show how the populist left (as represented by the 99%) and right (as represented by Bucksiron) are unable to see others as being valid in opinion without being swayed by an evil collective of right/left wingers out to poison the minds of others.
Have you not even stopped to consider that I have responded to you because of your own pathetic insults against others for daring to hold a different view to you? I wouldn’t have responded like that if you didn’t address me (you explicitly did) and made out I am somehow part of a nasty left wing cabal. Now you gaslight me and say how you had respect, when your continued responses indicated that you clearly didn’t. Like I say, take a look in the damn mirror before accusing others of being nasty bullies. I have felt like you have always attacked me for daring to hold different views, so I don’t know who you’re fooling by scuttling off to play the martyr again. You have called me sexist in the past, inferred that my views on climate change make me uncaring for the poor and grouped me in with a forum clique who are duplicitous. After this you expect me to react civilly to you? I mean you could argue that I could try to take it on the chin, but I am only human and there’s only so much gaslighting I can take.
I don’t agree with how Gurn has engaged with you and others, but I feel like you have acted like him with me by mischaracterising my views, as you have done above. I have said more than once that Gurn has unfairly chastised him for weird reasons and felt the need to defend him. His targeting of JustIron is frankly bizarre and doesn’t warm me to him as a person. However, your continued attacks against anyone who dares to disagree with the greatness of Brexit shows you up as a right wing equivalent of him. I have long past caring about being civil with you, because I have frankly felt you haven’t been civil with me.
I don’t think he has always treated you the best either, certainly with regard to previous comments made about mental health. However, this doesn’t make me view your own nastiness against others any better. I am going to be honest, I don’t view you as a nice person. Not because you’re a Tory and I am not, but because of how you gaslight and engage with anyone who disagrees with you. The case in point is here, and I don’t feel this is the only time you’ve acted like this towards me. You made a provocative post inferring things about my character above, clearly lumping me in with a bunch of bitter old men and then you expect me to respond genially when you weren’t with me? Get a grip, Bucks. I would quite happily stop inferring things against your character if you don’t make accusations against mine in the first place. I am just responding in kind to how I view you based on how you have interacted with myself. If anything you could say I’ve lowered myself to your level.
