Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
Ironically, the most notable and damaging acts of bitterness in the aftermath of the Leave vote was all the back-stabbing, resigning and leadership hoodwinking of the Brexit team (Gove, Farage and Johnson to name the biggest donkeys in the paddock). Apart from those utter clowns, the rest of it has been no dirtier than usual every day politics.
May just be perspective, or expectation, as I've see much more bitter politics in the US. I actually thought that Farage stepping back into the shadows, Johnson declining to run for PM, and Gove ultimate giving up, were all quite admirably in decorum.

As for the refusal to accept the results, on the other hand, I'm not sure I have ever seen a greater disdain for democracy in the western world. But then, again, perspective, I suppose.
