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

I know of a few Labour MPs who are currently being subjected to a sustained deselection campaign because of Brexit, completely despite how well they've represented their constituencies. In my UK hometown, the debate has become exceptionally toxic.

This 'deselection' first raised it's head en masse regarding MPs who resigned from Corbyn's government, but now it's also being used regarding Brexit issues. Some very unsavoury people are feeling newly empowered, and are weilding it in a very disturbing fashion.
Tories too with Nick Boles (Con, Grantham) up for deselection next week.

He was 'Remain' but said he'd abide by the referendum result. He's being deselected because he's advocated for a deal, when his local association will only accept a No Deal exit.

It's like a religious mania. Burn the heretic!
