    Brexit

    Scottish Independence

    Welfare cuts

    NHS privatisation

    Mass immigration

    "Multiculturalism" and Islam

    Massive wealth inequality

    Pedophilia scandals involving the government

    and the snooper's charter



    None of these are good or bad. The problem is how we debate them and handle them, and this is what is dividing people so much.

    Nope. These, apart from the Islam bit, have been going on for years and years and years.
    The last time this country went into civil war was because we had a mad dictator who wanted to stifle democracy. I don't see this happening any time soon.

    Isn't the overall problem just how divided the country is ? And our inability to debate anything sensibly ?

    We could be in the middle of a civil war but probably not

    But, when you add in the British phlegmaticness and mostly entirely apathetic mindset, the chances of an actual war taking place are so remote it's bit even worth thinking about.

    How would that even work?

    Two blocks of opposing idealogies, each with their own followers in different geographical areas, each vying to take control the country...

    Isn't that just normal politics?
