In my constituency all the antifascists are white.

Clear BREXIT mandate in England.
Not so in NI nor Scotland.
Moving from Great Britain to Little England.

I'm just afraid of the divisions and mutual hatred inspired by Corbyn's rhetoric: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/20 ... FFyYH1Z1Bw

You seem to be implying that Corbyn is responsible..?
80% of Scots voted for SNP. I reckon they don't give a damn about either Johnson nor Corbyn.

Campaigners held placards bearing the slogans "Defy Tory Rule" and chanting "Oh, Jeremy Corbyn” as anti-racist speakers address the crowds.

I do think Corbyn is largely responsible for the rage, but in a slightly more subtle way. By removing any credible alternative to the Johnson steam train out of Europe, I think you are most likely looking at a generation's worth of hatred and anger. And that's not even counting what will come out of Scotland and NI. 

A minor correction regarding Scotland. While the SNP got 80% of the Scottish seats, their share of the votes was 45%.

1% more than the Tories.

Nothing imho. They've always been like that.

I'm afraid both have something awkwardly close to 50% who would prefer the EU to the UK and vice versa. There is a lot more modern history of violence in one than the other, but between a revival of Tartan Terrorists and the much more recent militantly violent right wing unionist/protestant groups like the Scottish Defence League, I fear we may enter "the troubled 20's" in both places.

Ironically, if Labour backed May's deal this election would not have happened and Britain would be on track towards a much softer Brexit.

Concussion has strange side effects. I’m finding Caroline Flint quite attractive.

I've searched your photo and remembered this Ukrainian proverb: the pot called the kettle black.

I looked in the mirror - a gazelle :-D
