    Let's not be ridiculous. Even if Brexit were overturned there would not be street riots and revolutions like some histrionic Brexiteers suggest. It's Britain, so there would just be a lot of grumbling and complaining by Brexiteers, but not much else.
    People have started riots over a lot less.

    Oh, because what you wrote bore no resemblance to reality. Stuff like that.

    1) There is a historic precedent for revolution in circumstances in which the executive/political representatives commit lesser crimes than treason

    2) Irrespective of the above, we have, in the 21st century, entered a period of growing uncertainty and instability of numerous types/on multiple levels

    3) In case this needs pointing out, I did not indicate a time frame but, rather, that such an act of treason would be seminal in the development of a counter-elite reactionary trend culminating in rebellion

    I think my description was not only shorter but easier to understand, but you could also put it like that.

    Your prior insinuation concerning psychoactive affectation does not stand if you concur with my contentions, supposing you are not, by now, similarly stoned :hippie:

    LOL!
    No, I meant that your explanation still sounded like you were high. So, either my simple statement that it sounded like you were high, or your longer explanation, both equally demonstrated that you were high.
    Furthermore, your inability to grasp what I was saying is yet further proof.

    You just sound like you are. My mistake.
    I often mistake stupidity for intoxication too.
