    First of all, the people I have identified do not make up the "lion's share" of the population but you are exactly fulfilling the stereotype I have identified by regarding themselves and yourself as being one of average people. How can I be so sure of that? Because my stereotype is entirely male and anyone who identifies an entirely male group as being "average" has precisely the blindspot that I identify.

    My stereotype is not exclusively working class; it includes the golf club bore as much as the man down the working man's club.

    Moreover, my attitude is not one of distain. There is a certain amount of sympathy for people bypassed by history. However, as I said they lose the argument because they do not build coalitions. They are not the lion's share of the population but they think they are.
    I don't fulfill any of those stereotypes.

    I don't think women are in the minority(if they were the human race wouldn't be expanding at the rate it is), I had what could be perceived as a middle-class upbringing, I haven't been bypassed by history, I drink latte, I have drunk bitter occasionally although it isn't my favored type of beer, I get annoyed by some politicians inability to compromise for the common good and I respect everyone's right to hold opinions that differ from my own.

    'No-brainer' on every front: from constitutional questions of sovereign impingement and legal subordination and subservience, through social problems and migratory chaos, political confusion, disunity, and polarisation, and military incompetence, to economic instability and turmoil :rolleyes:

    What unadulterated drivel - economic impact - we would save £350 million a week - and xenophobic because we want to control our borders - historically Britain has always welcomed peoples who are fleeing pogroms, and those who wish to improve their lot.
