Describing something as “patronising” or even “patronising in the extreme” is not rational dispute, it is just name-calling.

The article illustrates ways in which voters on both sides were misled. For example, the brexit referendum followed many years of systematic misinformation about the EU which was spread by organisations whose leaders want to escape fair employment, anti-trust and tax laws that they find inconvenient.

And precisely which “sizeable parliamentary majority” are you talking about? Since 2015 there have been no parliamentary majorities in the UK as a whole.

In other words your comments are just more blather with no significant content — they illustrate precisely the kind of nonsense that the article is bemoaning.

Like what you read? Give Jacky Smith a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
