    It bears watching to the end - the ranter's comments are hilarious.

    You seriously endured that for the entire 13 minutes?
    Yes.
    I don't believe you.

    I skipped through the whole thing and what I gathered as the jist, was a bunch of ideological numbskulls taking the pittle out of a few other ideological numbskulls.
    In that context I agree, it is quite hilarious, isn't it?
    Something tells me however, that that's not the point you're trying to make.
    Perhaps you agree with the socialists cause, a new (old) vision of a better way. This time it'll be different?

    I dare say there's at least 100million or so people who'd disagree with you on that one, if they could.

    This is a continuing thread on here. The electorate voted, the votes were counted, the will of the electorate was recognised. It is now for our government to implement the will of the electorate. They call it Democracy.
    Now, it seems that the main issue for discussion was "Were the electorate sufficiently informed?" The answer is clearly 'No'. Neither the remainers or the leavers were given the information required to make an informed choice.

    The thing is though Bob, we're never in full possession of all the facts whenever we vote, because despite manifesto promises and lots of good intention no-one can see into the future.

    Therefore lots of people vote based on gut feeling or principle or political dogma. We could vote forever on this and still not get an answer.

    It would seem that I'm one of an increasing number that despite voting remain, have accepted the result and would now like the government to be given a free hand to get on with it.

    Would it matter if I honestly corrected you in an honest way?

    I'll try.

    Yes, I watched almost all of it - tho' by hovering the mouse over the time bar you can see where it 'kicked off' in the shop so I did jump to that. And then stopped again a good - ooh - couple of minutes before the very end as I'd see quite enough, thank you.

    No-one on here will be surprised at your thoroughly Trumpian attempt at painting the two sides as somehow equivalents; were there "bad dudes on both sides", Longsie? What are you two like?! Pretty clear where your ideology lies.

    As for mine, you should have a pretty good idea by now - in fact I know you do since I have had to correct you many times. You know, but won't accept it 'cos that doesn't suit your agenda, does it? It is part of the populist right-wing agenda to try and paint anyone who disagrees with them as equally extreme.

    "Perhaps you agree with the socialists cause, a new (old) vision of a better way. This time it'll be different?" you ask. No, I don't - as well you know. If I can be categorised, it is marginally left-of-centre. I am as anti-Corbyn as you are. (I hope that makes you feel as uncomfortable as it does me.)

    "Something tells me however, that that's not the point you're trying to make." No, it wasn't. The point I was hoping to make has just been made, so thank you.

    Just heard where these thuggish morons had come from - it was a protest held outside the BBC. What were they protesting about? The right to free speech.

    Honestly, you guys! What are you like!
