Not seen many Trump supporters either, same for BREXIT.
For some here, "not many" is still "too many", apparently.

Not everyone who voted for Brexit is thick. However, anyone who is thick voted for Brexit. Based on the straw poll of the thick people I know personally.

You forgot about BREXIT, but then most of the voters were not right wingers just thick with no idea what they were voting for apparently

I don't think people are denying COVID exists, just that it's nothing like as serious as claimed with hysterical overreaction.

Not seen many Trump supporters either, same for BREXIT. As usual the forum does not reflect the view of the majority who bothered to vote during the last 5 years.

You have to realise that your IQ & income is above the average Brit, they have different priorities to you, although you perciev=ce them to be thick. As votes are 1 per voter you have to accept that the thick will choose, this is something Dominic Cummings realised.

Do I really need to pepper my posts with emojis whenever I write something tongue-in-cheek, ironic, or sarcastic? I guess it's hard for non-Anglo-Saxons to get the nuances, otherwise.

I just figured Trev's post was some piece of obscure sarcasm that I couldn't wrap my head around.

Thank you. I'm chuffed to hear that I achieve my goal of writing intelligibly. After all, what's the point of writing something if your audience can't understand it?

Please don’t make fun of Cannut. I have the highest regard for him. He’s a true icon of Switzerland’s past and that he’s here on this board is a tribute to how far he has come, despite any setbacks he’s had in his past.

Cannut, I salute you!

But I agree what you write about Cannut; everybodies favorite belligerent uncle

Was he? Darn it, that was my fault for not reading more closely. Sorry, 22yards!

I'm genuinely perplexed. Did you see who I quoted in my post, and to whom I was replying? It wasn't cannut.

ETA: Posted before I read all the posts in this thread... Thanks for the apology, olygirl.

Even if his native language isn't English, it's still of a good level and he knows well enough that if he gets involved in snarkiness then he exposes himself to those kinds of responses.
