Interesting going back to read some of the early comments on here.

It’s clear there has been zero benefit to Brexit. Question is, is it because:

A - it was a bad idea

B - it has been implemented by people only looking to profit themselves

C - it was a bad idea implemented by people only looking to profit themselves

How do we go about reapplying to get in?

B if you watch the video I posted
Interesting video. It suggests that rich people profited on the night of the referendum by getting Farage to misleadingly concede early. Very plausible and wouldn’t surprise me if true.

Question I was answering was “why has there been zero benefit to Brexit“ and I stick with C: it was a bad idea in the first place and implemented by people (politicians) looking to profit themselves, e.g. Boris Johnson. For me it was more the former than the latter, and in any case it’s just my opinion.

I don’t think you are wrong; my views on Brexit are well known (hell, I live in the European Union) and whilst the EU is not perfect, it is frankly a lot better than what the UK currently has to suffer under a succession of Conservative governments, whose ideology is shifting increasingly towards an insular, right-wing nationalist approach, rather than the more centrist inclusionism the European Union was designed to promote.

May, again ideologically, the British just aren‘t cut out for sharing? Who knows!

The problem here is that the right’s vote is just Conservative, whereas the left’s vote is split between Labour, LibDem and Green. So with FPTP voting, and a largely right wing press, the right will win 9 times out of 10 and they know it.

Definitely the right wing press have a massive influence. Alot of people don't get past the headline.
