You’ve never made out problems with Brexit are beyond criticism, but are sure quick to label or infer anyone who does so as duplicitous or bitter. Which is the problem and is evident by your last paragraph. You’re fine with criticism, but as soon as someone does it becomes ‘like Trump’ or ‘bitter.’ This is not accepting that people against you are valid and is precisely the problem. If you accept criticism, maybe lay off the insults and straw men at anyone who dares to disagree, eh? Maybe then you wouldn’t people irritated, eh? But, of course, Saint Bucks is perfect, so no self-introspection is necessary for the right wing Owen Jones.
Of course people want things to succeed, on the whole, I do. However, when things don’t look great and those with expertise (such as economists) say otherwise I am going to trust them over those who say otherwise, especially when things don’t look stunning.
It doesn’t take an economic genius or Einstein to see that the UK plummeting in economic growth since the referendum isn’t great and doesn’t serve us well.
As for Trump comparisons, I’d be careful. The claims that there would be no Irish border, we would never face tariffs, we wouldn’t leave the Single Market etc are very Trumpian and they didn’t come from Remainers, but from Brexiters.
But, of course, in Bucksland, it’s only the liberals who need to self-reflect, which is exactly the problem which has led to right wingers storm the Capitol. The right wing are beyond repute.
And I have never said the referendum was a miscarriage of justice, but who cares when you can smear your opponent as duplicitous? Bucksiron reminds me of Trump and should probably look in the mirror before casting judgement on others. He’s the eternal victim, but sees fit to slam others, misrepresent others and gaslight others as he pleases.
And if he doesn’t like this view, then tough, it’s my honest opinion formed from his own argument styles and continuous misrepresentations of others against him. I am not stooping to any level from refusing to be civil with someone who has acted in bad faith, in my eyes.
