    I love how you keep bias out it and post sources from both sides of the fence Genial, and not like those buffoons who only seek out sources to confirm their bias and that share their view.

    It shows you have a mind of your own and you're above those docile types who believe the media is completely independent and non-partisan and aren't paid huge sums of money to print propaganda for the higher ups to try to influence public opinion to their cause by pumping out non-stop doom and gloom. .

    You seem to be new to my threads so I let your dim-witted post from last week go, but it seems I do need to step in now and expose your utter ignorance for everyone to see.

    See, even if all my news sources were from the liberal end of the news spectrum (which they are not, look again) that wouldn't mean they are untrue. They are facts, no matter how much you whine and ***** about it. Brexit IS a **** show, that is a well-established fact by now.

    Like countless uneducated, nationalistic, xenophobic Brexiteers on here before I challenge you to compile an overview of positive effects of Brexit of the same quantity, magnitude, and impact. Go on, I'll wait - and then just laugh at you for your pathetic conspiracy theories because they're the only way you can keep your nationalistic narrative going.

    I don't bother with this imp. He only responds to people who challenge his point of view, in the same predictable manner every time. He's actually part of the reason why nationalist movements are growing across Europe and EU-funded institutions attempt to sweep the problem under the blanket.

    Why would I respond to people who have the exact same opinion as me?

    ...and, like clockwork, it destroys the flimsy, nationalism-fueled arguments of Brexiteers every single time. That is the reason why you stopped trying to argue with the actual content of my posts and resorted to generic, laughable personal attacks: Sure, me calling out uneducated xenophobes is the reason why uneducated xenophobes are critical of the EU... have your head checked, mate.

    Oh look, it's Martin Selmayr's sidekick. Anyone who strongarms his way into power is obviously gonna respond like that. To insult, belittle and make fun of everyone who holds an opposing view. Obviously, being "educated" doesn't make OP a noble person at all. And he's just like any unaccountable EU bureaucrat. Blind to the problems, and whose only solution is to make them worse.

    I don't insult, belittle, ridicule people because they hold an opposing view. I do that because they hold an ignorant, naive, toxic view, born out of disinformation, arrogance, nationalism, and xenophobia.

    Exposing and fighting nationalism and xenophobia -the source of so much suffering- doesn't make me noble? Aww, darn.

    The reality is: these problems only exist in the minds of the British people, deluded by the faint memory of being a global superpower, feeling humiliated by the powers on the continent. It's so pathetic. I am so glad Brussels is putting you minnows into your place. Now you will say: that will only make things worse, and strengthen nationalist forces. I say: I couldn't care less! If you want to harm yourselves even more than you already did, go ahead! It's a damn good show for the rest of us!

    Never explained how Selmayr suddenly became 33000 people's boss. Or even attempted to justify it. Good thing we're jumping ship.

    Thanks for the heads up. I kind of twigged he was a complete crackpot totally inculcated into state propaganda, but now it's confirmed. These people are highly dangerous and causing untold damage to Europe. A real resistance can't come soon enough.

    Of course the EU is allowed to cherry-pick - it is, after all, the mammoth, thriving trade bloc that the UK needs much more than the other way around. It's positively hilarious how the UK still thinks they have any sort of leverage in the negotiations.

    Just out of interest, which well known European politician do you admire the most or/and fits in with your political beliefs?

    Eg Macron, Merkel, Renzi or some well known lesser politician such as Verhofstadt or Schauble
