    Clearly no rebuttal to counteract me then.
    Don't try to 'educate' me with your expert's predictions then be too ignorant to accept that you can't argue a point back. You clearly need to do more research.
    Pathetic. Pathetic and ignorant. We are leaving the EU. Accept it.

    Nothing I suppose. As a recent psychology graduate I have studied the tendency for the cognitive bias of ignoring information regarding a topic concerning risk, that conflicts with ones own ideologies. Even if that information is by experts, and the argument strong. Selective-attention, retention, biased assimilation and confirmation bias. All well known to those who study risk perception.

    Of course, I've read about this in study upon study, all of which have found this to be true in topics such as climate change, nuclear power, stem cell research etc. But seeing people in real life so adamantly sticking their fingers in their ears and going "la la la la la, can't hear can't hear!" still makes my chest tight.


    What you should say is that you accept the risk, and you personally feel the benefit outweighs the risk, as opposed to denying the risk in the first place.
    Wow. for someone who has studied cognitive bias in such detail you'd think you'd be a bit more aware of your own I.e. This continued reference to me being a brexit voter.

    I don't feel the benefits outweigh the risks hence voting remain :rofl: and I've never denied any risks since I've come to accept the nations decision instead of wasting time trying to scorn people in hindsight which is what you are doing.

    And given how long the essays you write back are to say to the person above tl;dr shows that your constant reference to expert opinion is wearing a bit thin and you don't have much else.

    You cannot achieve anything other than divide and hatred by acting like this about the situation and speaking to brexiters as you are. I suggest you tone it down, accept it, and start figuring out how to make the best out of a bad situation and spreading those ideas. It would be a lot better use of your time.

    That's it take your opinions to the echo chamber they belong in.
