Let's just say that the next time the police kill someone, I won't be sleeping too well.

Smoke, it's what I've been doing.

Since the EU referendum results revealed the UK voted to leave, people have been compiling reports of racism on social media.

Quote
Former Conservative parliamentary candidate Shazia Awan worked for the Stronger In campaign in Wales. She says she noticed a number of incidents of anti-foreign sentiment.
"When the Leave campaign focussed on the issue of immigration a few weeks before the result, I could feel the difference in how people were acting," she said.
"While I was campaigning, I was speaking to a black woman. A white man walked past and called her the N word."
After the referendum result, Shazia experienced a backlash herself when she tweeted her reaction to the outcome of the vote.
"After I came from the count on Friday morning I posted a tweet about David Cameron being the least worst thing about the Conservative party.
"Then I got a reply saying I should pack my bags and go home - I was born in Caerphilly in Wales.
"I don't like what this means for all of us."

Still anecdotal, but this is very, very fucking mild compared to some of this shit I've heard/seen by now. Knives are being mentioned with an alarming frequency, both aggressively and as the default means to protect yourself.

I'm hoping for someone to say it's just the parts/people I'm dealing with and it's not the norm.

There seem to be a large number on what was the 'Leave' side who are now downplaying the importance that people who actually voted placed on immigration. This is likely because none of the innuendoes that the Leave side let slip during their campaigning are going to be easy to achieve.

I don't know how long a situation with this much uncertainty can carry on without some crazy shit happening - from what I can tell we've just fucked ourselves and the main promises of the 'winning' camp are now turning out to be a bunch of wishful thinking and/or straight up lies. Surely people are now going to start asking "Where's this Greater Britain we were promised? What about all that EU money we aren't spending any more?"

I dunno maybe I overestimate the complacency of everyone. Certainly the Conservatives got into power on some similarly difficult to substantiate claims and nobody seemed too upset when they inevitably couldn't fulfil.

I've just watched some grinning pimply youth on the news channel telling me how much better off we will be trading with Ghana than with the European Union which according to another wunderkind is a failed and diminishing continent.

Cain, you are very lucky - I don't drink; what the hell am I supposed to do.   :horrormirth:

Respect to Chuck Tingle, whoever they are. The stories are not half bad for tongue in the cheek stuff according to my partner. She was telling me about the shitfest around "Chuck" being nominated for the Hugo's, which meant a friend of hers who was expected to be nominated missed out.

Whoever they are they are a pretty interesting phenomenon

It's quite a feat. Some of the titles alone are works of art.

Oh shit, I am definitely drunk.  Please disregard anything posted in, lets say, the last hour from this post and the next 3 hours, unless it seems like it actually makes sense.
Can't say I blame you.

On a personal note, I apologize for making dumb jokes on your facebook Brexit threads. That shit is terrifying and sad.

It's fine.  I mean, what else can you do?  The people have spoken, and what they have said is "derp".  Quickly followed by "oh shit, I didn't think my vote counted."

So right now, there's not much else to do about it, except joke, watch the news and drink heavily.
