The EU is a deeply racist organisation, given its refusal to admit any countries consisting prinarily of dark skinned people. Shame on you for wanting to remain a part of it, and for all the racist remainers who were assaulting minorities in the UK after they lost the referendum.

This could be called "In praise of ad hominem"

If you saw the Brexit decision as just about immigration, which seems to be the nub of your argument, then the fact Leave won must be accepted as a vote against open borders.

When, in modern times, have Conservative administrations not used the vote against immigration to bolster their vote? It wasn't the noisiest, it was/is the most useful given the state of today's 'enlightened others'. Just as blind/bigoted on a class basis.

Just curious, suppose UK economy has a major boom post brexit, how will you reflect on this? What priors might you change?

'Decent leaver...'. And the other 17,xxx,xxx -1 weren't.

You bang on about confirmation bias so much it's odd that you can't ignore yours.

"The EU is a deeply racist organisation, given its refusal to admit any countries consisting prinarily (sic) of dark skinned people."

There aren't any in Europe. The "E" in "EU" stands for "European".

This is not tribalism really is it? Not in the way commenters have used it about Trump or Brexit. It is really having a better Model of reality. In what universe is Farage or trump going to help the common man or increase wealth for the people?

Some people like having a laugh. And prefer illusion to actuality.
