The difference is the temporary nature of the USA's current status, you have 1-5 years left of Trump. A no-deal Brexit would have repercussions that would last for decades. Start with a brain drain, as those who can, get the hell out. Add an emboldened right wing high on owning the lefties. Mix in a return to casual racism and an intolerance for Europeans. Massive increases in poverty, drops in funding for the NHS and support services. Huge increases in wealth inequality. A move to US style healthcare but no one with any money to pay for it. It's a dark time in the USA, but you will see a dawn. The same can't be said about the UK in the case of a no deal Brexit.
You'd be surprised, national or at least localised stocks fluctuate a fair amount. The average idiotic no dealer has no clue how bad it will most likely get, but if anyone is supporting Boris then we are truly fucked as a nation
"Idiots Are Taking Over"
it's not the right time to be sober
now the idiots have taken over
spreading like a social cancer, is there an answer?
Mensa membership conceding
tell me why and how are all the stupid people breeding
Watson, it's really elementary
the industrial revolution
has flipped the bitch on evolution
the benevolent and wise are being thwarted, ostracized, what a bummer
the world keeps getting dumber
insensitivity is standard and faith is being fancied over reason
darwin's rollin over in his coffin
the fittest are surviving much less often
now everything seems to be reversing, and it's worsening
someone flopped a steamer in the gene pool
now angry mob mentality's no longer the exception, it's the rule
and im startin to feel a lot like charlton heston
stranded on a primate planet
apes and orangutans that ran it to the ground
with generals and the armies that obeyed them
followers following fables
philosophies that enable them to rule without regard
there's no point for democracy when ignorance is celebrated
political scientists get the same one vote as some Arkansas inbred
majority rule, don't work in mental institutions
sometimes the smallest softest voice carries the grand biggest solutions
what are we left with?
a nation of god-fearing pregnant nationalists
who feel it's their duty to populate the homeland
pass on traditions
how to get ahead religions
And prosperity via simpleton culture
Not quite a riot but a million people turning up for a protest in a country of about 60 million is a hell of a showing:It's strange to me why the UK and US don't mass public riot. These are countries where you know you cannot get violently shot by governmental regimes for speaking your minds(though local police across the US is a different matter), so why not stop members of government from getting into their buildings? Stopping and protesting at every level and chance you get.
It sometimes almost feels like people just don't care at all. There are other countries where shit would burn, for less offenses experienced than the ones that occur in the US and UK.
One of the rallying cries for the leave side was the "Human Rights Act" that was "forced on us by the EU".
Feels like at some point it changed from a dumpster fire and became more like an ecstasy of ritual flame. Folk gladly throwing things on the fire hoping some other outcome other than being burned alive will happen.
Yes. There are people who have now based their entire personalities off it. They don’t understand it, they don’t care about what else the government does for them - they just want Brexit.
I'm still yet to hear a solid interpretation of how it will work, what it actually means, or what the consequences are (from a leave perspective). It's all empty rhetoric regurgitated from news papers and right wing talking heads.
They were promised rivers of honey and not everyone is capable of identifying when someone is being manipulative for personal gain (or Boris would never have gotten so far in his career...)
Oh god... this is deeply depressing in its accuracy.
The shitty US states want to revert themselves back to colonial era is not worse than the Tories/England/Wales dragging Scotland and NI to the no-deal shit hole.
That has been a result of austerity rather than Brexit but I’ll admit it is not going to get better if we crash out.
Some would argue Austerity is what caused Brext too, I tend to partially agree.
That’s because it’s what they want. The Tories in the UK are the same as Republicans in the US. They’re shitting all over democracy because it’s the only way to actualise their endgame. It’s fucked. We’re heading into dark times."we have delivered on the primary request of the people; the one big thing they have asked us to do"
I do wish the government would stop saying this. Only around 1/3 of voters actively asked for Brexit - the other 2/3s either voted against it or didn't vote. Every time they use this 'will of people' crap it completely ignores a massive proportion of the UK voting population.
