That's nice. So as someone who is clearly anti-brexit, what's your solution? Why are you trying to divide people when we should be working together to try and make the best of a situation.

Stop moaning and start making a difference.

You seem to be under the illusion that I am British. As you could have easily seen from my user name and my signature, I am not.

My weekly posts are a mixture of friendly banter, trolling the nationalist mouth-breathers that are Brexiteers, gloating at the demise of one of the most arrogant and cynical nations on earth, educating the uninformed, influencing the upcoming elections, and influencing a potential second referendum.

The Guardian and the Independent are not very balanced on the issue. They peruse the foreign press and companies' news looking for anything that might support the idea that Brexit will be a disaster.

... and they're doing a pretty good job at it. It's not very difficult though, there is just so much more hard evidence for it than against it!

Most of the articles I quote refer to official statistics from British government departments, agencies, and think tanks though.

Why are the remain crying so much. It has been proven that more countries are looking to leave the EU.

Also the countries that never joined are doing so well.

Is that why Austria, the Netherlands, and France elected Centrist, pro-EU governments/presidents after the referendum? Or why the Eurozone just recorded a six-year high in economic activity? Believe me, once the EU is done with Britain, not even nationalists will even think about leaving the EU.

No one can answer that question. As it could either way. Because people are feed with the bailing countries out. Namely Greece at the minute,oh yes let's not forget shapes of food.

I'm not saying it is a "good thing", just that the Guardian and the Independent are very one-sided (arguably it is the same for the pro-Brexit papers).

The reality is somewhere between the Telegraph and the Guardian.
