Talking of swallowing propaganda whole...end the signal to the EU that they could continue the path towards federalism and marginalising countries that didn't want to be part of the United States of Europe. A narrow majority for Remain, on the other hand, might have prompted Brussels and Strasbourg to remember that the EU is about all 28 countries.
Several Leavers I know were regretting their choice when I last saw them in February. I can't see much to have changed their mind.To be fair non or very few of the people I know who voted leave regret that decision.Im guessing similar with those that voted for the Tories/Johnson.
I think the press/social media had a lot to do with disinformation and the lies told.They willingly gave a platform to the lies of vote leave.Promising a brighter future for deprived communities.Even now the pantomime of Cummings whilst the death toll of the virus continues.The siphoning of funds to their chums accounts.
Blue passport anyone ?
Its a peculiar idea put about in the UK, but "EU Federalism" isn't mentioned here. It isn't wanted, or even legal under EU or national laws. It's a curious and very beautiful thing that people on both French and German sides of the Rhine where I live visit or live in each others countries, and have friends on both sides of the river but are also very happy with their own identities, and each other's.Talking of swallowing propaganda whole...
This is hokum. The EU never has been, and never will be, about contintental federalism and marginalising countries. It has always been about getting countries to act together because the interests of all are best served like that.
I wouldn't dream of making the suggestion of @Archie_tect above, but you have again created an argument that suggests people didn't believe or trust a major leader in the leave campaign, yet decided to vote for the policies they were advocating anyway. This seems a curious basis of making a decision on how to vote.Anyone one with an IQ over 75 knew that the moment he first opened his mouth. It's no surprise to most of the population.
