    Racists don't have any common sense.

    Many people who voted to leave the EU hadn't a clue what they were actually voting for. I suspect if we had another referendum the outcome might be very different.

    The writing is on the wall for our fat cat parliamentarians.

    That is a good thing. They should not expect thanks from anyone.

    By a particularly creative measure of "saving", of course...

    It probably isn't.

    Finally somebody has been allowed two minutes air time to make aware to the people that the BBC and TV are remain organisations which is why the majority view is rarely heard over the hours and hours of remain deliberations. Bring back unbiased reporting and democracy. Allow the majority (Brexiteers) a voice

    Not seen that.

    I thought you liked people with principles who stuck to them.

    What does an overdose of wishful thinking feels like?

    I have been hearing James O'Brien's name often as of late.

    He is, of course, entirely correct in that video. Iain Dale does not make a very good showing, though.

    Jacob Rees Mogg has appeared on JOB’s show and has since invited the snowflake as he calls him to at least phone in to his show. Needless to say, JOB has refused. This is probably what Ian Dale was getting at.

    But it is the same stance that Richard Dawkins takes with debating, he won't debate creationists because it gives them equal standing.
    Faith or Feelings do not have the same standing as Facts, it is the same with JRM, he just lies, as does Boris and the rest of them - but when you give them air time their lies get repeated and become 'Facts' in the minds of the gullible.

    Right James O'Brien is.

    Why lend Ress Mogg the appearance of dignity?

    Same with Nigel Farage, the oil snake person. Or Boris Johnson.

    Not only is JOB a snob but he is a cowardly snob and your typical snowflake to boot.

    "Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me"

    Is that really the best you can do? If JOB is a snob, what is JRM and BJ?

    The truth hurts.

    Both of them are far more approachable than JOB is or ever will be.

    "Approachable"? That is an odd choice of word for such professional liars and dishonest populists.
