I hate to say it, but it this passes they'd be right to leave. Closed borders, nationalism, and paranoid schizophrenic islamophobia would still be retarded ideas, but they'd be right to leave the EU

Welcome to the fun and exciting world of nationalism, jackass.  Buy the ticket, take the ride.

Bannon's reasons why people should leave the EU (national sovereignty, national identity, etc) are still retarded.

The problem is that the EU is currently poised to deliver a non-retarded reason for countries to leave. There are a lot of benefits to being in the EU, and they're well worth giving up the kind of things that Bannon is worried about; the things he cares about are largely worthless anyway. They are not, however, worth giving up a free and open internet.

Here's a diagram. In descending order of importance:

The Internet>International cooperation>Individual nations and the other stupid shit bannon cares about

Look, let me just quote you on this for a little context.

Yeah, the side effect of reducing tariffs to zero on petrol and oil refinery is the collapse of the petrochemicals industry as 100% of it will come from abroad.
North Sea Oil is more of a worry. 2000 Job losses barely cuts it and most are in Scotland.

Are the tories trying to get Border Reivers?  Because this is how you get Border Reivers.

Oh right, blues are Tories, red is Labour, dark yellow is the Lib Dems and that light yellow is the SNP.

As you can see, there's a whole bunch of Tories sitting directly south of the border.

I wouldn't. Half of us are unionists/members of the 1690 re-enactment society and the other half are fucking liberals who's idea of battle tactics is to hold their hands up and try to diffuse the situation, right up until the dude they're trying to placate is pulling his machete back out their skull, after which you can't really rely on their support much beyond sandbags and meat. Bit different in "actual scotland" north of Tyndrum, but there's so few of us up there that we'll be stuck fighting guerrilla fashion. Works for me, tho, so that's where I'll be headed if shit kicks off. I know a couple of - ripe for the picking - shooting estates where I can stock up on weapons, once I've dealt with the gentry there. Of course, my fellow primates are a constant source of disappointment and this whole shitshow will probably blow over with barely a drop of blood spilled but I can dream.

Cameron's memoir out.

Short version: I'm an idiot.

Long version: I don't understand my party or country and even knowing what I know now, I'd do it again. Also, I smoked massive drugs too just like all my former colleagues. Behold my edge, tis sharper than thine.

I'm assuming that with Blair, major, brown etc. Putting the boot into johnson he's felt left out and wants to remind everyone who's fuckup this all was to begin with.

He's still dodging and denying though. "Oh there was going to be a referendum one day." No there wasn't, because the swivel-eyed loon brigade aside, most people didn't care.

However, Cameron had a bad election because the press went full tilt "Syian rapefugees are going to murder us in our beds" all year long and UKIP ate into his vote. So in an attempt to win back the votes of racist pensioners, he launched an ill-conceived, poorly ran referendum campaign that was treated as a way to give the posh bastard in Number 10 a black eye, which a lot of people promptly jumped at. Then, once the magnitude of his fuckup was realised, he ran away from the whole situation.

If he could admit that, well I'd still advocate kicking him in the balls, but I'd have at least some respect for him.

Point of order, is his formal full name still "pigfucker"? I don't think we're using the proper level of respect for his accomplishments.

Why do I live in a world where the actor from a superhero film is correcting the UK prime minister on his metaphor on his disastrous pet project.

This is not the distopia I was promised, this is somehow so much worse.

Maybe even a metaphor involving a comics superhero is too advanced for his demographic - something simpler like "We in EU is we with chains, but we brexit, we dog without leash."
