    Maybe it's just a case of fallacious balance, or the idea that if a NDB is extreme, then its opposite - no Brexit - must be extreme, too. Which sounds a bit like saying that if shooting yourself in both feet is an extreme measure, then not shooting yourself in either foot is also extreme, so shooting yourself in only one foot is a good, sensible compromise.

    I use remainiacs ironically because the EU has realised that it is their petty squabbling that is going to give them a chance to get shot of us. fair play, it's cuntish, but we can't expect much else from our boss overlords. I.E: the leavers aren't actually going to bring about no deal and soft remainers are too flaccid to get worked up about Corbyn. And I think they are right, in this situation it's best to be placid. and flaccid. corbyn is not the most evil man who has walked the face of 10 downing st.

    It makes sense to me... but I was glad when say May's deal was rejected cos it kept alive the possibility of both No Deal and also Remain. And I'd rather have that sliver of hope than it just be done and dusted with the WA... but yeah, the penalty for that was an increased likelihood of No Deal.
    I've seen people saying Remain Extremists more and more too - it struck me as a childish rhetorical attack on Remainers that is annoyingly gaining more currency and traction than it deserves. No more behind it than that I expect.
