Probably won’t make sense as I’m hungover.
Some of my friends at the pub yesterday who voted to Leave were moaning about parliament now having control over Brexit, while also saying Theresa May is doing a good job as PM and that she ‘gets a lot of shit from MPs’ or something. For some reason this made my blood boil but ultimately I said nothing.
It just drives me batshit that they can’t see how this is all a very bad thing, that they’ve essentially voted to make themselves poorer, that they can’t see through Theresa May’s obvious bullshit about helping working people, and that they don’t realise how much of the press is controlled by billionaires who want us to vote against our interests. I’ve known these people for years and it fills me with grief that they’ve allowed themselves to become brainwashed like this.
Probably a pointless thread, but this is starting to bother me more than I thought it would. Is it actually possible to talk to Brexit voters about Brexit without it ending up in an argument? Is anyone else experiencing this awkwardness?
