I'm at a party celebrating Brexit now.
I have mentioned voting leave a couple of times.
Considered voting for the DUP in December so I didn't have to directly vote for the PM and support his Brexit deal.
But in the end the DUP disgust me more and it was simpler to just cast my vote along with the two proxy votes.
If you're at a party, why are you on tsr?

Disagree BoxIN beat me to posting it, a great moment for democracy. Only I was going to entitle it, a fresh beginning and we move forward as united Britons.

We are no longer EU citizens, happy brexit day.
Correct, but we are still European.

The only way it's a fresh beginning is if we dump this government in the sea tomorrow morning. You're about to learn first hand what we've been telling you for years - the problems this country faces are home made and perpetuated by a succession of poor governments. The EU is far from perfect, it's far too attached to neoliberalism as an ideology and as a result happily enforces the development of a stark wealth gap and the destruction of communities being choked by the "invisible hand of the free market", but you're a fool if you don't think that the UK has been a major driver of that ideology through Thatcher and her acolytes like Blair and Cameron. There will be no great improvements, because the root issue is still there - you'll never "make Britain great again" or whatever your slogan will be until you recognise your actual enemy and yeet the billionaires into the sun where they belong

Can you explain how a campaign orchestrated by senior political figures, well financed by exceptionally wealthy individuals and backed by the most read newspapers in the country could ever be considered the underdogs?

I'd be more sympathetic towards Brexit if we had seen the emergence of new political voices with original ideas. Instead the Conservative establishment has increased its stranglehold.

Time to come together. Friendships have ended, families broken and couples estranged because of Brexit.

Yes, it did happen. A man on bbc news said he has not spoken to his best mate since 2016 cos of Brexit. A woman cut off ties with her parents.

The UK.

Independence from Brussels was a good start (thanks Welsh/English voters!). Now onwards to proper independence!

You see, this is why people think leavers are massive prats who lack any answers or justification, and why as a result many remainers spit in the face of uniting behind the result. You can't offer any serious response or argument over how the root cause of all our issues lies deeper than the EU and that, while not having to have harmful economic policy dictated to us (like it was to the Greeks) is potentially useful, it's no good when we're lock step with that economic policy anyway, instead you just try to gloat.

The occupation of the six counties ending and complete Irish independence would be a good start. Also Scotland freeing itself of the sassenachs
