We did vote,and we are leaving, so remainers, get over it.

You think America is bad with Trump, you should try living here with the fucking Torry's in power.

John Oliver is a nasty little prick. He should try to imagine the United States allowing themselves to be governed by another country. Once he realised just how distasteful that would be to the majority of Americans, he might begin to understand why the UK voted to leave the EU.

#1. Scotsman50 ‘We did vote,and we are leaving, so remainers, get over it’

Ummm Scotsman … don’t you find it a little ironic, given your support for Brexit, that Scotland actually voted to remain. This is not a majority sentiment in your country ;)

So I assume ‘Best thing this shit hole country has done in a long time’ is a reference to the United Kingdom. So you identify as British? Odd seeing that your moniker is ‘Scotsman50’. (just busting your balls.. I kid I kid) Or is that just in terms of Brexit politics?

>You should try living here with the fucking Torry's in power.

No doubt. So how did you vote on the independence referendum? Were you pro-independence? Would explain pro Brexit. Especially if you are hoping for further devolution of Great Britain.

Personally I think the Brexit vote has been a disaster but to each their own. Only time will tell if it was worth it but the UK is in for a world of short term hurt.

#5 it's a shame that some people think voting for a massive change like leaving the EU will somehow fix their own depressing lives, bring back jobs and take the UK back to the 'magic' of the 1950s. Truth is it'll be even more depressing, more isolating and won't bring back any good feelings at all.

Most of the people who voted for it will be dead by the time the country really goes down the pan, and by that time it'll be too late.

#6 It's intriguing to hear some people profess to know precisely the many and varied reasons why the majority of British voters decided to leave the EU, and to also know what the socio-economic position of the country will be in ten, twenty or thirty years time. What do you do for a job? Are you a mind reader, or perhaps an astrologer?

#7. Sockcooker. I guess it was refreshing? to see that you are as naturally? surly and aggressive with others (i.e. #6. Krazeeeyez) from the get go but it does beg the question why? A polite request to ease up a bit. Please. Your hostile missives don’t really contribute anything and just belittling people’s opinions for the sake of belittlement is not terribly insightful or fun to read. Questions are good, difference of opinion are to be expected and respected, but snark and ridicule is just that.

And please – stop with the misattribution. #6. Krazeeeyez said ‘it's a shame that some people think …’ Some being the operative quantifier. IMHO you unfairly over-attributed this reason for pro-Brexit support. But in all fairness that nostalgic view (prosperity, more manufacturing jobs, tighter borders, fewer immigrants, flourishing middle class, less integration with Europe. Pax Brittanica) did constitute the core of the anti Brexit message. It is an accurate general summary about the sentiment and the propaganda utilized.

As for Brexit vote and age – 61% of 65 + and 56% of 50-64 years old voted to leave. Below age 50 and the majorities wanted to remain with only 25% of 18-24 years olds voting to leave. So statistically yes, the consequences will NOT be felt by those who most strongly supported it.

As for the future economy – no one credible has said it would be easy or painless. In fact the pro forces IMHO were sold a pack of lies by Nigel and Boris and their NHS bus. Just how long the pain will last, a decade? Two? Three? Is a fair and ongoing debate amongst economists. Regardless the UK will suffer for some time. How long we will just have to wait and see.

Oh please Austin. get real. The condescending and insulting tone of krazeeyez's comment is plain to see. 'People want to fix their deprerssing lives', 'take the UK back to some magical 1960s', 'more isolated', 'more depressed',... really? I for one am not depressed and I don't feel isolated. I have no money worries and my financial plans stretch well into the future, 1950's ? What was that? It's meaningless to me, and just a silly comment he's invented and held up as a target to then go ahead and shoot down, which I did, in a similar tone. I doubt if he'll be traumatised, I think he can handle the reply, he doesn't need your comfort.

Yes, statistically speaking, the consequences will not be felt as much by those who most strongly supported it. And that's a shame, because many of them will not be around to experience the full benefit of the changes, but everyone else will, and that's good.

As for your final point, as you say, no one is saying it will be easy or painless. The difference in viewpoints is clear when you look at Krayzeey's closing remark. He obviously believes the UK is facing some terminal decline resulting in a final apocalyptic nightmare scenario. That's the way Remoaners prefer to see things. But those who voted Leave are more optimistic and believe in short term pain for long term gain. The country will weather this storm and come out of it a better place to live and work.

As you say. We will see. Incidentally, I plan on being around for some considerable time yet, so I'm looking forward to seeing the benefits of Brexit, for everyone. This is my last word. I know you never leave a comment section unless yours is the final one, so go ahead if it makes you feel better, but I can't promise I'll read it.

Kind Regards

O ffs where do i start?
#5 don’t you find it a little ironic, given your support for Brexit, that Scotland actually voted to remain. This is not a majority sentiment in your country.

It is not the majority however neither was it the majority for us to have a Torry government however we are stuck with what the English want as being a smaller country with a smaller populous we will always have what the English want.

I identify as Scottish as i am not British i am Scottish the same as the Welsh identify as Welsh and the Irish that are from Northern Ireland identify as Irish and the English as English not Great Britainish, however they/we are all identified as British. kinda stupid but that is the way it works.

No doubt. So how did you vote on the independence referendum?

I voted out of the UE and out of the union as the EU vote was not on the table then and as for the EU the only reason i did was this island we call Great Britain is our Island , the Welsh,Irish Scottish and English and to be told what we can and can not do by a bunch of Un-elected no-marks in the EU who make our laws and keep us in check is not my idea of good. as previously said would you be happy with another country making your laws?
So i wanted our own power to run our own country but given the choice of having the English telling us what to do or the boy's club in the EU i would rather have the status quo, as at least we have a chance of electing some of them.
So there is the answer from me to two questions and how i voted both in the referendum and the in out vote.

>we will always have what the English want.

And this is why I was surprised that the last independence referendum failed to pass. As an outsider I thought the Scottish identity and desire for true independence would have carried the day.

>I identify as Scottish as i am not British

Indeed. Just like my Welsh friends. British is just imposed on everyone, kind of like the queen and presumably taxes.

>I voted out – not to be told what we can and cannot do by a bunch of Un-elected no-marks in the EU who make our laws and keep us in check.

Completely fair argument. Sovereignty over national laws and rights and liberties is a powerful motivation and one that I agree with.

#6 it's a shame that some people think voting for a massive change like leaving the EU will somehow fix their own depressing lives.

Let me assure you of a few things.
I voted out
You do not know me.
My life is anything but depressing.
I am nearly 60 years old and have served a very good and happy life with a wonderful wife and 6 amazing children.
Just because i have my views and you have your's and they both differ does not mean that because i disagree with you i have a depressing life and thus shows the mentality of the remoaners.
You my dear sir now fall firmly and squarely into my Muppet list on SNOTR.

In the words of the wise #9
This is my last word.
Kind Regards

#8 "As for the future economy – no one credible has said it would be easy or painless." I actually made it to the bottom of one of your posts!

Would these be the same "credible" sources who said the stock market would plunge if Trump were elected?

There is leaving the EU and there is leaving the EU. I don't think anybody in the UK and that includes the politicians had any idea what leaving the EU would actually mean. I'm pretty sure if you asked most of the 51/52% of people who voted leave what they expected from the leave, it was a quick bye bye, close our boarders to immigrants and get control over our own laws and decision making. How wrong they were.

I have to say and there was a lot of TV based information about leaving or staying in the EU prior to the referendum but there wasn't one uncomplicated simple program that clearly explained what the outcome would likely be, just the usual political bullshit and exaggeration's like you get in an election, lies lies lies. I'm not saying incidentally that I would now like to not be leaving, the honest truth is, I still don't know what the outcome of all this is going to mean for my country. It seems to me it's a blind gamble.

# 14. fjwjr 'Teach a little kid how to be foul mouthed' ?????????

Teach? LOL. Have you had any contact with kids lately? Other then perhaps your own.

Profanity has been steadily infiltrating children’s lexicons over the years. I suspect it is due to film and television and games. And perhaps just listening to parents and older sibs. A boy this age probably has a robust repertoire of profanity that makes f*ck look tame. I am not saying this is a good or bad thing, just pushing back against your suggestion that Oliver’s bit taught this kid anything new. And this holds for European kids, British kids, American etc etc. And not just the lads. Kids know that these are taboo words which makes them even more appealing to learn and try to use.

#14 Typical response of an American, who whines about the use of swear words and makes a big deal about it. Interestingly, I have never heard swear words used anywhere as much as here in the US...it seems trying to make a big deal out of them makes them even more attractive to many!
