Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

I just watched a pro Brexit video on youtube. Very kindly the youtube algorithm then gave me a queue of "Up Next" videos to watch...I scrolled down a few pages but couldn't see any that were not anti Brexit. How kind of youtube to help me get rid of my extremist views.
