    Which is why the most union jacks you'll ever see in one room is with the british cargo culture in ulster.

    I won't bore you with Fintan's mountainous verbiage. Let's just extract some of the words he uses.

    "idiocy...stupidity..sheer incompetence ...reckless arrogance".

    Is this how we speak to our friends? This thread is opened so you can post links, quotes and articles wherein the British are demonised for implementing their democratic will. It would be good to have a source thread to document such attacks so as to remember who our friends are, should we ever go crawling to the UK for support as we did after the financial crisis.

    Please contribute such examples where you find them. I expect them to increase in ferocity over the coming weeks.

    And if you cannot stay respectful, go fck yourself Fintan.
    It was never a democratic decision, it was advisory only.

    The Brits take their democracy seriously.

    We just vote again when we give the answer the EU doesn't want.

    Why do they have such corruption and a royalist system then?

    The least democratic country in the EU takes its democracy seriously?

    Who would have thought it.

    I have to agree with that. Obviously not a Brexiteer, but I have some admiration for the Brits

    1 - holding the referendum in the first place
    2 - not countenancing a second vote

    Let's be honest, the Germans rule Europe. The Brits weren't having it.

    Having said that, they had already dodged the bullet of the Euro, so I think exiting the EU is a bit of an over-reaction.

    Oh fck up, the Brexit was the second vote the UK had on EU membership so as you can see they were made vote again.

    The fcking twits on this forum sometimes.

    Go watch celebrity jungle buttmunch or whatever it's called.
