    Or alternatively, some spotty 17 year old on work experience at the Daily Mail copied it from the Guardian.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I just hate politics. Lefties like you are obsessed with it and accuse everyone who doesn't want to live in an Orwellian distopia of being Hitler, it get's very boring.

    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Case in point. First time I’ve been called a leftie, I’ve voted Tory all my life with only a single exception.

    You’re so far right even Centrists look far left to you.

    (Well, they do occasionally sell stories to each other but recently there has been more and more of this)
    In the last week or so the Daily Mail have also abruptly switched from being staunch Brexiters to rabid Remainers.

    They've really lost the plot - Most of their loyal readers are very vexed indeed at this bizarre development and are deserting them in droves for the Telegraph!

    Apparently it's all due to the previous editor, Paul Dacre, resigning and the new editor being henpecked and threatened by his Remainer wife into changing their editorial stance.

    Ah but you have to be careful there as the new editor of the DM, Geordie Grieg (I think that's his name) was previously editor of the Mail on Sunday and the new editor of the MoS is a Leaver. When you look at the online version, particularly on a Sunday, it's not possible to tell which version of the rag the article comes from

    Exactly my point. I've also voted Tory all my life. I'm certainly not a leftie! I haven't been able to abide that bunch of losers since university - 1987-1990.

    Isn't the American left still pretty right - if you get my drift?

    Well it has been for most of my life but very recently it has taken a sharp turn to the left which is bewildering many long-term moderate Democrats. Looks to me like a cynical ploy to get the migrant vote.
