You make the assumption that brexit is based on xenophobia.

 :lulz:

This fucking thread.

I've spent 6 hours threatening to feed various people into a conveyor belt. Gods, I needed a laugh like this thread is providing.

If you think I may be laughing at you, I assure you, I probably am.

Gulp!

I mean, for fucking real?  Brexit could be argued to not be inherently racist (which, yanno   :lulz: ), but it is by definition xenophobic.

Your evil isn't ancient enough.  I have left instructions for my great-grand kiddies to tell the story of what you done.

GDP/GNP/Average income are all just metrics to distinguish the wealthy from the peons.

Seriously, the median yearly wage in the USA is $65,751, but the mode wage is $18,500.  Which means the rich are really, really fucking raking it in.

Its pretty shit over this side of the pond too. In no small measure because of the staggering political ignorance of the vast majority of the electorate.

Disagree with freedom of movement? You are racist, doesn't matter your reasons, you are racist, islamaphobic scum.


People can be quick to judge but I have yet to hear an argument against freedom of movement that doesn't play on fear of the other.

What about cheapness? A lot of people pretty openly also seem to be worried that immigrants will benefit from social welfare programs, the cost of which might possibly cause people's taxes to go up a penny

So the immigrants that aren't coming over to steal our jobs are coming over to shit up our social welfare? Still seems based in fear rather than empathy.

I don't know the numbers re how many immigrants end up on welfare vs. in paid work though.
