Why Remainers can’t go around saying the 2016 EU Referendum was unfair because voters were lied to, and then turn on the very voters for believing the lies.

Just catching up on the recent People’s Vote rally in Sunderland. Going through the replies on Twitter, I expected nasty Leave ones. They are always there, but there was something else that made my blood boil.

Remain supporters having a go. Not very helpful people.

In reply to this one: No, they don’t. You can’t harp on about how Leave lied, then blame the people for falling for it.

This one is particularly nice. Again, Leave lied. Just a side note, none of these people live in the North. So, they haven't got a clue what it is like to live in forgotten towns, that have been long ignored by Westminster.

Nice. And a big F**k you from me and all the hundreds of thousands of Remain activists in the North to you as well.

Yes sweetheart, the North did vote Leave and if you want to remain, you might want to think about it. If it was lost in the North, it will be won in the North. Do you think this helps? Note the location of the tweeter: Enfield, London.


They did.

UKIP were in every town centre telling them it would be better. The industry would be stronger and bigger than before. Remember all those tweets you have done about how Leave lied?

Another gem here.

Remember how you tweeted about how “no one voted to be poorer”? Does that only apply to Southern Leave voters?


This one is a favourite of mine...

The empathy is quite touching here. It brought a tear to my eye.

Again my fellow Remainer, Leave lied. You tweet it over and over again.

All of these lovely people replied to one post by the People’s Vote campaign about the Sunderland rally.

My blood pressure wouldn’t let me look at anymore.

So to all of you people, here is the skinny.

There were a lot of protest votes in the North for Leave. I know at least ten people who did vote Leave. They were angry. They thought Remain would win but wanted to send a Big F**k You to David Cameron. One of them even phoned me the next day to apologise.

We are not all backward yokels up here. We are not turkeys voting for Christmas. We are hardworking people who deserve better than we have had for the last 20 years. If you agree with the featured tweets, unfollow me on Twitter. I don’t want your brand of Remain anywhere near me.

And when the North votes Remain and turns the result around in a new vote, you can all apologise, eat Yorkshire Puddings and chicken Parm for a month as penance.🔷
