And if BoJo was humiliated in Luxembourg, as the Telegraph and others seem to agree on, maybe that was exactly what he had coming. He has been claiming great progress in negotiations with the EU despite, by all credible accounts, nothing has actually been done. Stupid is as stupid does...

Different political leanings lead to different things triggering the knee-jerk reaction.
Yes. But is there any relationship between the triggers and the timescale? I mean Category A (whatever that might be) person is triggered by certain things, has a certain threshold and a certain timescale. A Category B person has different triggers etc. and crucially a different timescale. What I’m getting at is that as news speeds up so different types of people get upset and feed back via SM. Some news stories will lead to bubbles, others won’t.

What’s that saying about gossip traveling half way around the planet before truth has got its shoes on.

It interests me but probably no one else!
I think the behaviour needs to be described by the catastrophe theory. People have hysteresis. Re the Brexit, group behaviour is being controlled by the EU and the UK govs. Mind that whenever the UK politicians make some move, which could potentially switch people to a different state, the EU quickly responds to out-balance it and keep us where we are. Or at least that's how I try to approach this chaos - methodically :-{)

I’m happy with the path dependency. But ain’t no one changing their states!

If only we didn't have an elite going out of its way to derail the efforts of the government to deliver on the decision of the people.

Thanks to Twitter we know everyone’s political/Brexit position. And the nastiness is dividing us into two groups. There’s the woke/PC group and then there’s the sensible ones.

I can easily see members of one group boycotting activities of the other.

You’re welcome to An Evening With Stephen Fry. I’ll be seeing Jerry Sadowitz. I know who will have the better time.

I'm starting to lose interest in BREXIT; it's gone on for too long.
We need some new blood here.

Idea: a thread on stand-up-comedy, per land. What makes a good joke ... it differs per country.

Right. This could be a multi-dimensional use-case landscape and it could be quite hilarious. Maybe also a bumpy ride, we can always hope.
