    Remaining in the EU kept them 'little Englanders'. This is the part that grates with their old grand narrative.

    Apart they want to make their own way. Regain their identity.

    Entirely emotionally driven. Reason isn't going to work.

    They either make it or die trying to.

    How did free trade with over 80 nations with EU membership make them 'little Englanders'? It is precisely what they fought Bonaparte for.

    Nor is the remain reasoning in any way 'emotional' as opposed to your invocation of 'spirit' to 'do whatever it takes' which may be necessary in war but is not appropriate for managing an economy.

    Didn't say remain was the emotional party here.

    I can and the 'remainers' are far 'go out and get them' free trade than the petty little Englanders willing to see the UK break up.

    No. Bojo having China Virus has nothing to do with BREXIT. What does karma have to do with anything?

    Hilarious... you mime your favourite fool Trumpkin too. It is not a 'China virus' it is a virus which does not recognise borders or nationality, Chinese, Italian, Spanish it does not care, that by some reports came from a bat (flittermouse) so if that is true I might justly call it a 'bat virus'.

    How is it karma? Because Johnson and all the Brexiteers knowingly (most of them) lied all the way through the referendum.

    Not directly from a bat. It went from a bat to an anteater, adapted in the anteater and then jumped species again to humans.

    Eating a bat won't give you this virus unless something else springs up since they tend to harbour numerous other corona viruses in their system already.

    I think (and hope) that one positive of this whole virus pandemic outbreak is likely to be a form of return to rational Government - at least in the UK and hopefully in the US too. Enough of this "bulldog spirit" (or "we are the best") rubbish - no 'spirit' - no matter what it's type (Yank or Brit) saved a person from a viral infection. PPE, ventilators and a vaccine may but scientific methods and testing are the only way forward.

    The UK was apparently invited to join an EU enterprise to get ventilators some time ago. The first excuse they wrongly gave was that "We are no longer EU members so we're going to do our own thing" which is factually wrong as the UK does not leave the EU until December 31. The second excuse was that the UK Government didn't notice the email inviting them to join this EU scheme. Then it apparently turned out they had got and read the email but didn't react to it - doubtless some 'bulldog spirit' or something of the like the previous night - result is deaths are rising in the UK and Dominic Cummings is infected along with BoJo. Some of these irrational self populists will hopefully pay the full price for their lies.
