Brexit: Facts vs Fear, Boris vs Truth, with Stephen Fry.

Brexit: Facts vs Fear, Boris vs Truth, with Stephen Fry.


Can you see what’s
wrong with this scene? The trick is called
forced perspective. It was used to shrink the Hobbits
in The Lord of the Rings. Deceptive framing has also created
false assumptions about the EU. Some very dark,
and some comical. This is the story of how a mythical
EU dragon was conjured up, and the striking
truth behind it all. Headlines like these
have been a reliable way for British newspapers
to win attention. In 2015, the UN Human Rights
chief urged the UK to tackle tabloid hate speech after
migrants were called cockroaches. The article in the Sun began:
“Show me pictures of coffins, “show me bodies floating in water,
play violins and show me “skinny people looking sad.
I still don’t care.” You referred to a plague
of feral humans. I mean, are
they all feral? Is it actually
a plague? It’s because you look at them
and think you are nothing like me. You don’t understand
how our culture works. In these individuals, from
some of these cultures they come from,
are feral humans. The UN described a
nasty underbelly of racism and noted that Nazi media also
referred to people as cockroaches, rats. Brexiteers sailed in on
fears built up over decades. This campaign poster
captures the deception. The migrants aren’t heading to
Britain and have no way to reach it. The lone white face has been
covered by the campaign slogan. When challenged Nigel Farage
felt no pressure to apologise. Your poster has been taken by
many people as deeply offensive, upsetting, racist,
anti-Muslim. Would you like to
apologise to them tonight? Well you know, I issued a very
similar poster to that two months before, with very little debate. The problem
with the poster wasn’t the image. After all it appeared on all
of our front page newspapers. A leaflet played on the same
fears, with more subtle deception. It claims these countries
are set to join the EU. In reality they
have applied, but Turkey applied
over 30 years ago, and couldn’t be
further from joining. Syria and Iraq
have not applied. They are shown
for the fear factor. A second leaflet
is less subtle. Turkey and Iraq are
almost the same colour. The arrow, part of the
visual language of invasion, includes all the
colours of the region. Let’s move the camera
for a clearer view. This is what the NHS
spends by age group. Add education and pensions and we
have half of all government spending. These are the demographics
of immigrants. They are exactly what Britain needs
to support its aging population. There is overwhelming
consensus among economists that immigration is
good for Britain’s economy. Studies show they
boost public finances because they pay
more in indirect taxes and make much less use of
benefits and public services. What do they know? What do they know
about the impact of immigration on school places,
on hospital waiting lists? In fact, immigrants pay for
more places than they use. European migrants made a
positive net contribution of £20 billion to UK public finances
between 2000 and 2011. That’s enough to pay for an extra
80 million GP visits per year. Immigrants also
reduce waiting lists by easing the
NHS’s recruitment crisis. This year the NHS has
3,000 fewer EEA nurses and 4,000 doctors are
considering leaving the UK. Here’s the
second graph. It shows that most Leave voters
live in areas with very few immigrants. 9 of the 10 districts with the highest
Leave vote had low immigration. Lambeth in London, which recorded
the highest Remain vote of 78%, saw a net annual influx
of 4,598 immigrants, while Castle Point in Essex
saw only 81 new immigrants. But 72% of people
there, voted Leave. At first this might
seem surprising, but it’s a well-established trend
that when we meet immigrants, we lose our
fear of them. The illusion
is broken. The UK media is the least trusted
in Europe by some margin. Perhaps even more
readers need to recognise the deception before
things improve. The leave campaign also drove
fear of losing democratic control. We cannot hope to govern
an independent nation. We cannot hope to have an
independent democracy in this country, as long as we are
members of the EU. Since 1999 the UK has voted
in favour of EU laws 95% of the time, and against,
only 2%. In search of an example
of losing control to the EU, Boris suggested that the EU
banned odd shaped bananas, a myth debunked
over 20 years ago. You cannot sell bananas with
abnormal curvature of the fingers. Other comical myths
hardly need debunking. In his resignation letter, Boris
pointed to a more serious example. He said, “If a country cannot pass a
law to save the lives of female cyclists “when that proposal is supported
at every level of UK government, “then I don’t see how that country
can truly be called independent.” The laws he refers to were in fact
put forward by the EU and passed, despite some resistance
among the UK government. Other EU achievements include taking
sewage off bathing beaches, cheaper phone calls, fighting tax
evasion by global companies, banning spam emails and
major breakthroughs in science and medicine
through collaborative projects. But for Boris, the EU was like
an alien force taking over Britain. Let’s fight against the great complacent,
mutinous armies of the establishment. We can win. We can
win on June 23rd. Campaign between
now and June 23rd. Take back control
of our country. Vote Leave and let’s make sure
that June 24th is independence day. The framing of Boris and
his colleague, Jacob Rees-Mogg, as fighting the establishment,
was also very forced. Jacob’s father was
the editor of The Times. In his own words he was effectively
born into the establishment. He is for foxhunting, against abortion
under any circumstances, and personally delivered a Daily Express
petition against foreign aid. But the message resonated
with people who had suffered years of income stagnation
while the rich had grown richer. The leave campaign
blamed this on immigration, but studies show immigration
does not deflate wages, and the real causes
are well established. The 2008 financial crisis
and government policies criticised by the UN as failing
to promote social mobility. People without degrees,
perhaps feeling trapped at the wrong end
of income inequality, were far more likely
to vote Leave. Central London is
the EU’s richest region and yet 30 percent of UK
children live in poverty. A hundred thousand more have fallen
below the poverty line in 12 months. Boris and Co seem unlikely
candidates to deviate from this path. Projecting a fight against
the establishment allowed the Leave campaign
to brush research data and expert advice
under the carpet. What economics body is
there that they should believe? All the ones, all the ones that are part of
the sort of institutional infrastructure of big government,
be suspicious of. I think the people in this country
have had enough of experts with organisations from
acronyms saying… People of this country
have had enough of experts? What do you
mean by that? In a poll of top
economists 80% agreed that people in the UK would be
poorer as a result of Brexit. Only 2% disagreed. Here’s why there’s
such a consensus. Putting up trade barriers
is bad for your economy. The withdrawal from the EU is a
form of putting up trade barriers. Full stop. You are ruining
your competitiveness specifically with your
largest trading partner. It is a fact of life. It’s one of
the few things in economics we can talk about as a fact
of life. The gravity applies. The UK trades more with
Ireland than with China. Yet Jacob Rees-Mogg
says a No Deal Brexit would boost the
economy by £1.1 trillion. Trump has of course
employed a similar trick branding the whole
mainstream media as fake and projecting his
own alternative facts. Perhaps the Leave
campaign’s greatest trick, after dishonestly sowing and stoking
so much groundless fear themselves, was to steal from that
cheap Trump playbook and accuse Remainers of
being guilty of their crimes. Just as Trump, the master creator
of false facts, shouts fake news and whatever goes against
his agenda, so the Brexiteers, the arch instigators of
electoral fear themselves, routinely labelled all the warnings
from experts: “Project Fear”. Expert warnings which
have come starkly true throughout this shambles
of a negotiation period. Project fear. The truth is beginning to outshine
the mythical dragon of the EU. Polls show that most people
would now rather remain in Europe, and there is increasing support
for a vote on the final deal. Something Jacob Rees-Mogg
once supported. And you could have two
referendums and as it happens, it may be more sense to have
the second referendum after the renegotiation
is completed. Should the will of the people
change when they have clearly put the
deal before them, would he respect
that will of the people? If in 30 years time the
UK wants to rejoin that would be a matter
for the electorate then, but this result must be respected
and it must be implemented. Perhaps in a final vote, facts
would start to overcome fears. Wouldn’t that be a win
for informed democracy?

100 thoughts on “Brexit: Facts vs Fear, Boris vs Truth, with Stephen Fry.”

  1. It must be very nice for a wealthy, cushioned luvvy who has no idea of real life. I'm sorry but you becoming the voice of EU propaganda disgusts me.

  2. Europeans must get into their head that migrating into Europe is their own creation, it's the result of sucking up the wealth/colonizing all over the world centuries ago. History always catches up

  3. This video is based on false dichotomy. Immigration per se is not the problem for most people who are against the form of immigration politics today which is completely different to the historical immigration.

  4. People in London voted to remain because they are mostly from other countrys.

    People in places who voted to leave with hardly any immigrants voted for that exact reason that they don't want the same to happen to them.

  5. Yes, "those people" know exactly how "your culture works"… Britain is in many ways a descenant of immigrations, including from the Middel East, Africa, the Stepp… the problem is, that such racists don't have any culture at all.
    Apart from the, the EU has no part in deciding who, if not an EU citizen, gets to go to Britain. Pretty few do, and will want to…

  6. WE WERE SIGNED INTO THE EEC 1972 UNCONSTITUIONAL LAWS BROKEN, THE PEOPLE GOT CONNED IN 74 AND THE EU IS A EUSSR ANTI BREXIT BULL YET AGAIN WE DONT NEED UNEDUCATED NONE SPEAKING MASSES IN THIS ISLAND LOWEST AREAS VOTED TO LEAVE REALLY!!!!! BHAM LEAVE ALL THE WEST MIDLANDS LEAVE ALL THE EAST MIDLANDS LEAVE ONLY PLACES TO STAY ARE SMALL PART OF WALES AND SCOTLAND AND THE BUBBLE LONDON THATS IT GO LOOK IT UP AND WAKE UP

  7. The reality is people voted in good faith to leave the EU and the will of the people should be carried out. As for the population benefiting from immigration, that is simplistic nonsense, what about the environment and infrastucture and amenity for the existing population. As it is you have a nett growth of 520,000 more people per year which is unsustainable in the long term.

  8. Stephen Fry your talking EU propaganda your just a low IQ quisling clown. You have never spoken an original ideal in your life, you just repeat plateaus you heard someone else speak, you say what you think sound righteous. you a bit of a dim wit really

  9. White British people moved out of London with more immigration and so more immigrants vote for positive immigration policies in London?

  10. Places with lots of immigrants voted to Remain? What a shocking development, next you'll be saying that Turkeys tend to vote against Christmas

  11. "Expert warnings that have become starkly true" <—— Pants on Fire lie
    Sad to see Fry lending this nonsense an air of credibility.

  12. As a racist bigoted right winger i say its time for communism in UK. Build industry, nationalise industry, reject immigration whilst there are unemployed whites. Under communism the government does not ask them to look for work, it gives them a time and place to be in the morning where they WILL work. Scrap teaching liberal arts until the stem deficit is fixed instead of having most graduates leave with a masters in art history then go straight back on the dole. Brexit is a criminal scheme. If the people want to leave then so be it, but nobody should have authorized a date until UK had reached an economic equilibrium. Fuck the rich, fuck the poor. If we pay taxes to feed a government, the government should work to feed us. As it stands, everyone seems to be filtering off whatever they can from the people who are really trying to make a difference.

  13. No mention of the ludicrous idea of EU member states' fixed monetary exchange rate, described by the Italian PM as "a wrong currency, a failed currency, a failed experiment". Which bright idea, along with other foolish unworkable ideas such as the Target 2 credit system, has ruined that country's economy, along with Cyprus, Greece, Spain, et al. Poor countries the World over cannot afford to have these impossible restrictions, which cripple their exports.
    No mention of the purchase, by would-be EU member Turkey from "Isis", of a billion pounds (or $?) worth of stolen oil.
    No mention of the £20,000 a year paid to an local immigrant from Iran (together with free flat, etc) whilst my old friend (an English resident and worker all his life) who lived next door to him, got a pension of £8,500 pa, but had to pay £6,000 pa of that for his flat. Multiply that £20k by a few 10,000's…….
    Walk around any of the Greater London areas, anytime. Over 90% of the people on the streets and in retailers are from foreign countries. Only in the evenings do you see a few native British residents.
    Plenty of Mosques are built, but if we went to their ex-countries, even a page out of a Bible, or an opinion about that country's rulers or religion would warrant a prison sentence. But we get plenty of grumbles, insults and violence from our (permanent) visitors, when our objections are labelled hate. How surprising!
    Yes, we could do with parting from EU control for a start, and whatever else is desirable later.

  15. Sorry, Steven, the brexiteers are still refusing to listen – "don't confuse us with the facts, we're happy with our prejudices!"

  16. Steven Fry is more intelligent than most people trying to rule the world. I would rather believe what this man tells me than I would someone who stands to make money from control.

  17. I get annoyed with the aging population argument. Its almost like people forget that immigrants get old too! In 50 years, the immigrants will be old and rely on the NHS, just like the aged population does now. These immigrants will then make up a larger part of that older generation, serving only to compound the problem that it tried to solve.
    It is not a solution.
    It's merely kicking the problem down the lane for later generations to solve.

  18. Being opposed to immigration is not necessarily based on economic views or "fear" of people from other cultures. Some people simply want to preserve their culture and national identity. There's nothing wrong with that at all.

  19. I’m sure everything’s just lovely where you are Stephen but I’m afraid here, in the real world, the bastards are everywhere; we are absolutely choc-a-bloc with foreigners & not one of the fuckers wants us to stay in the EU because they know it’s rife with wronguns on the continent who all wanna come here. Sod that, time to shut up shop & sift out the shite

  20. What utter, utter rubbish, typical of Stephen Fry… BBC luvvie, a part of the pro-EU left-wing Remain cult based on project fear.
    David Cameron threatened WW3 (amongst other silly lies) if we voted to leave, no one on the leave side lied to anything like that level!
    People down here in the real world know how uncontrolled immigration is causing real problems all over the UK.and by your own admission, Lambeth full of immigrants who voted Remain? No surprise there then!
    We are second biggest contributor in EU and are financing the expansion of the EU, being joined by former Soviet bloc countries.
    The EU is NOT a sustainable project and has run its course. it makes us uncompetitive and ties our hands and reduces choise and keeps prices of foods and other goods artificially high thanks to its restrictive tariffs (CAP makes farming inefficient and allows huge foreign ships to drege our waters of fish) that stop us buying lower cost foods from Turkey, Middle east, Africa and Ukraine, to name a few.
    This video chooses selective data and avoids the fact that we have a £100bn trade deficit with the EU, so the EU need us more than we need them.
    We are the single largest export market for German cars (800k units) and VW group, Mercedes and Porsche have Britain as its biggest market.
    A clean break Brexit will soon see German industry wanting a sensible negotiated deal for their own sake, otherwise they are likely to go into recession.

  21. Fair enough for not cutting Nigel Farage up in that clip, but surely a man of your intelligence would address the point he made. You are blinded by your ideology.

  22. The modern era is seeing a flood of populist terrorism. These 'leaders' are little different from the imams who call for jihad against the west because they want everyone who is not 'like us' gone and dead.
    Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, Geert Wilders, Marion Le Pen. Each and every one of them is nothing more than a scared bigot who only think they're strong because they have their heads up their own ass and it echos like an empty opera room.
    People like this need to be cast out and barred from politics because they only seek to damage others and enrich themselves. They are the definition of bad faith actors as they refuse to learn and adapt to anything that hasn't come out of their own vile mouths or benefits only them.

  23. project fear hey, looks like the scum bags from Farage and the Daily fail are the real project fear . informed democracy , that is a bastard joke, that is what we don't have , they have made a mockery out of democracy.

  24. I tell you what’s wrong wit this scene. You…

    I personally can’t wait for Immigration to be bought in line with what a country can absorb. The fucking joke of this video to not once mention the mass migration of EU citizens into the UK without and real idea of how many countless millions came here, forcing house prices up, putting excessive pressure on hospitals and all other public resources is a fucking joke.

    Do you think people are that stupid that they will be swayed by some story told by a old predatory man like Stephen Fry? He needs to get a grip of his own life before he starts lecturing others on theirs.

    It’s like you’re about to host a party at home and someone asks, “oh how many guests have you got coming?” You respond, “don’t know, didn’t ask.” They then ask “So how much food do you need? “ again you respond “No idea, I don’t know how many people are coming.”

    Do you have enough chairs?
    Enough space in your two bed?
    Enough toilet paper?

    And your response? Oh I don’t know because I don’t fucking know how many people are coming. This is what undocumented and uncontrolled EU migration is doing to the UK. There’s no point if they bring alcohol or snacks to the party because fundamentally the house itself is a certain size and no one RSVPd?

    I would rather be a little poorer and not have to boast about the fact that we do less trade with China than Ireland. That’s pathetic.l, it should be the reverse. Finally some level of control. Immigration is like a fucking tap, if we need more careers, either develop better technology for it, or manage an ageing population with empathy and support. Not using cheap migration. How the fuck is that gonna work in the long run. Stupidity at its finest. These videos paint a lovely picture of economics without any real discussing of the devastation an alien species can have on the local one. You should be training the poorest for better jobs, not leaving them to be kicked to the side because of some Polish workers who come for a few years and fuck off when things aren’t as rosy…

  25. I agree with almost all of this, except for that the US media is to be trusted. Media in the US is not media. They have been completely sold out to the corporate world.

    Really, every country that wants to avoid to get into a situation like with the media in the USA. It's absolute manufactured consent by the big industries and they fully control politics because of money in politics. Except of course for that one dude Bernie Sanders. 40 years of politics and never accepted a damn from corporations.

  26. Talk about "forced perspective", this biased rhetoric video only speaks about one aspect of brexit – immigration as seen from a very small group of uninformed, right wing, born rich baffoons such as Boris Johnson and Reece-mog which gets brushed off as everyone who voted brexit is a right wing racist. It doesn't even begin to delve into the pro's and con's of brexit, fails to mention anything in the form of a reasonable and fair debate or dialogue, doesn't even go into the rich/poor debate, constitutional sovereignty and how any constitutional change requires a referendum which the UK had, but didn't for any of the previous treaties, doesn't mention the good friday agreement and how people in the occupied North live in fear of war starting up again, how the agricultural policy provides Billions to rich land owners and fishing policy is destroying the fish stocks, environments and livelyhoods of many and has seen a 31% drop in fishermen since the EU's policy started, or the EU's hard border in Africa, Mellila, didn't even speak about how the EU's protectionism policies stop African farmers and economies from competing or growing in any way as the EU sell them food that doesn't pass EU regs at a 3rd of the price local farmers grow and sell for, but give Billions to Morocco to guard the gates to the EU, or how about the new authoritarian governments of Poland and Hungary reaping billions in EU funding then sticking 2 fingers up to the separation of powers and judicary court system the EU requires, or how Greece, Italy and Spains economies are all failing, but the European bank just keeps lending them more and more, there's 100's of other reasons not mentioned. All you EU newbies have no idea whats gone on before June 2016 so I ask everyone and the honourable gentlemen Mr Fry to do some more deeper research and come back with a more rounded, transparent, fair effort and have a debate

  27. Stephen Fry has fallen for the population Ponzi scheme. Immigrants get old too, and they want to bring their elderly parents with them.
    London is an absolute hole of a place. Too many people.
    I am surprised that Mr Fry is confusing culturalism with racism. He thinks that it is racist to deny the vote in British elections to people who have chosen to follow the teachings of a 7th century paedophile who advocated wife-beating and fighting the unbeliever.

  28. It is the same thing everywhere, conservative politics mainly exists in order to represent the interests of the rich. They use those massive monetary resources in order to manipulate the public into fighting against their own interests; something they can do because they have gutted education so the general public have extremely poor critical thinking skills. So they can scapegoat and deflect blame onto those who are most marginalized and powerless all they want. Even though anyone who did the research would find that none of it actually holds any water.

  29. The sooner we stop listening to or acknowledging Katie Hopkins, the better. She is a loathsome, attention seeking shit heel.

  30. Although i fully agree with every statement in this video, making B. Johnson and J. Rees-Mogg look like dancing infant-puppets is actually antithetical to the message you're conveying. It is a graphical representation of an argument ad-hominem, which weakens, if not nullifies, the posed argument itself. The coverage showing them making asses of themselves would have sufficed. This is my opinion.

  31. There is a good argument for breaking up the EU and returning to something like the EEC where countries such as Greece control their own currencies. See Mark Blyth's videos on the subject. He's an economics prof at Brown University.

  32. Stephen Fry should be PM for the simple fact he tells the truth…Boris the Bastard would not know truth even if truth walked up and slapped him on the face…Boris the Bastard is a sickness the uk needs to shake off

  33. Although globally I applaud this video and the other ones in this channel it's important to note that playing selectively with statistics to fit your storyline is just as unethical as the scheming that you expose of 'the other side'. You show muslim countries joining the EU, then talk about immigrants. And how they are not costing society money but are a net contributor (the 20 billion number). However, as you mention very briefly, that is about European immigrants only. Add non-EU immigrants and those numbers don't fit the positive story so well.

  34. Dear Mr Fry please go back to doing something on the telly. You're quite good at that. You really shouldn't have taken up a job in your own political party. I'm far too polite to say what I'm actually thinking.

  35. Back in real life I work along side skilled Migrants in the UK "Doing the jobs WE do not want to do"
    (a classic metropolitan university liberal graduate spoilt bratt slogan)
    They all tell me they came here to save up to buy a house at home.
    (A DREAM IMPOSSIBLE FOR WORKING CLASS BRITS)
    I say i would do the same and we get on just fine.
    How ever they also tell me that their home city is now full of non EU migrants on slave wages that have been housed on welfare and pushed up their own house prices.
    and these people are competing for local jobs with the native less socially mobile poorest section of their own community,s.
    I welcome the EU citizens to live here in the UK since their presence will force the EU to build more affordable housing which I might get a look in at!
    But they do not want to be here they tell me they hate the EU as much as many of us do.

  36. When Katy Hopkins opens her gob she sounds Feral.Her words what come out of her mouth are the words of a low life she should be ashamed.

  37. ++++ ++++++. … Wait.. wait… the next move is to collapse the U.S. and the E.U. Just as, in the fall of Germany lead to the expansion of the Reich.
    BUILDING ON THE ON THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY EST BERLIN 1942
    Building on the Treaty of London and the COUNCIL OF EUROPE 1949
    Building on and borrowing from the Merkel initiative , the 2007 U.S.-EU Summit
    adopted a Framework for Advancing Transatlantic Economic Integration . The framework affirmed the importance of further deepening transatlantic economic integration, particularly through efforts to reduce or harmonize regulatory barriers to international trade and investment. A new institutional structure, a Transatlantic Economic Council (TEC), was established to advance this process. The TEC will be headed on both sides by ministerial-level appointees with cabinet rank. Its mandate is to accelerate on-going efforts to reduce regulatory barriers, in part, by introducing broader participation of stakeholders, including legislators, in the discussions and cooperative meetings. Meeting at least once a year, the TEC will monitor progress and try to identify areas where regulations could be reduced or harmonized. Despite this effort to provide a higher-level political commitment to accelerating transatlantic economic integration .
    Nevertheless, the U.S.-EU relationship has been challenged in recent years as numerous trade and foreign policy conflicts have emerged. The 2003 crisis over Iraq, which bitterly divided the EU and severely strained U.S.-EU relations, is most notable,but the list of disagreements has been wide and varied. Although Europeans are not monolithic in their views, many EU member states have objected to at least some elements of U.S. policy on issues ranging from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to U.S. treatment of terrorist detainees to climate change and aircraft subsidies. Since 2003, however, both sides have made efforts to improve relations, and successive U.S.-EU summits have sought to emphasize areas of cooperation and partnership. At the same time, challenges and some tensions remain in the U.S.-EU relationship.

    Issues at the U.S.-EU April 2007 Summit !!!
    (the EU & US signed up to a Single Market and Regulatory Convergence in nearly 40 areas. at a summit, in Washington, on the 30th April 2007. … * MEMBERSHIP* . !!!
    You tell them ++++, the Dollar belongs to the private bank that issued it, the non-U.S. Federal Reserve. The gold it held, in "Fee Simple" by the International Monetary Fund, as collateral against the PEOPLES debt. !!!

    Between 2008/10 the Federal Reserve, an agency of the U.N.'s bank, the International Monetary Fund, put ALL European banks in permanent Dollar debt. !!!

  38. This should be compulsory viewing for every man, woman and child in our country. Brexit is a lie, told by liars, to gullible people who are incapable of independent thought

  39. iF ONLY MORE PEOPLE REALISED WTF BREXIT IS ALL ABOUT! ; SUPERB ANALYSIS MR. FRY! 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  40. The places that voted more to leave could see what was happening in places that voted remain and don't want it on their doorstep.

  41. We have always had people moving around the globe and as wars increase there will be many more. Unfortunately newspaper and personalities use similar words to those of the Information minister of Nazi Germany in the 1930's, Mr J Goebbels and tend to exaggerate false statistics and spread fake news thanks to social media platforms.
    With immigrants many have extremely useful skills and often show up the native workforce by working harder, faster and better. They bring with them their culture, films, food, music and clothes
    and will very often improve the genepool and area's where they eventually live which used to be the most run down area's of a town or city.
    The downside are economic migrants and those misusing the NHS and benefits system. Lastly, it's hard for the authorities to see who is a genuine asylum seeker and who is not.
    I'm so bored with Brexit, it seems we will never leave, we are in a real life version of 'Groundhog day'.

  42. Why does everyone think that those who voted leave are anti immigration? I, like many, voted to leave because the British should not allow unellected European parliamentarians to decide any part of our laws here in Britain.

  43. I'm already dirt-poor and this hasn't even concluded yet. If this has some kind of levelling effect where those that are comfortably off can taste the life that i've had for the past 15 years then i'm all for it.

  44. The government seeks instructions from the people the referendum
    The governments then ignores the referendum, and the elite who are paid eu quislings are trying their best to stop brexit.
    The result is anger as the MAJORITY VOTED TO LEAVE THE EU. ( not partly stay in it ,or any deals we LEAVE)
    And DEMOCRACY IS AT STAKE HERE THE VERY THING OUR ANCESTORS FOUGHT AND DIED FOR SO MANY TIMES!
    This is not that hard to understand, and yes the older generation who found out that the government of the day we entered the common market LIED TO US!.
    The young will believe what they like, but age and wisdom knows better.

  45. The government seeks instructions from the people the referendum
    The governments then ignores the referendum, and the elite who are paid eu quislings are trying their best to stop brexit.
    The result is anger as the MAJORITY VOTED TO LEAVE THE EU. ( not partly stay in it ,or any deals we LEAVE)
    And DEMOCRACY IS AT STAKE HERE THE VERY THING OUR ANCESTORS FOUGHT AND DIED FOR SO MANY TIMES!
    This is not that hard to understand, and yes the older generation who found out that the government of the day we entered the common market LIED TO US!.

  47. Boris should be in the fucking tower, and Farage!, they are trying to sell out our Country and our NHS for the staggering money THEY and their like will make by allowing the huge corporations take over and hide even mor taxes they SHOULD have been paying all along

  48. Why are we not getting THIS on again right now before the election, when we really need ordinary people to see something to open their eyes against all the crap rags like the Sun and the other Torry papers are publishing. A couple of months ago Mogg was handed his share of a windfall the stalemate of Brexit has caused, his share was over 2 million, no wonder he decided to drop out of the leadership race. These people are the enemy, we have to stop them selling this Country out to the corporations

  49. I think Boris models himself on Billy Bunter and like Billy is forever hoping for the arrival of a postal order, or in Boris's dreams some sort of utopia where everyone loves Boris and his pals. Boris had any trace of empathy removed behind the hallowed walls of Eton and the Bullingdon boys club. He was taught to feel priveledged and also given delusions of adequacy. A sad excuse for a human being.

  50. A truly dreadful presentation. Fry opens to tell us we are all gullible with his perspective metaphor. He then goes on to over-simplify, gloss-over, and avoid core concerns over our membership that many people are unhappy with in the EU. He uses a vague narrative to patronise the audience and takes selective opinions to make his point. Fry is unashamedly self-enriching, joyously insulated by privilege and a close circle of advocates. How can he attempt to understand what is going on outside his front door let alone emphasise with UK families who are experiencing steady decline in quality of work, quality of life, social support, and opportunities?
    We live on the edge of a European economy that is increasingly centralised and offers little democratic representation or hope for positive change in regional communities, whether they be here or in southern Europe. What do you expect? The referendum was foolish and was lost, because for many people the EU and the road to federalism is not the solution. Please accept that a binary choice provides little room for compromise. Any semblance of success relies on respect and concession to support a new and progressive UK relationship with the EU. 'Remain' has chosen a destructive path for no better reason than to make a point. . Stay or go, the remain campaign is inflicting the greatest damage to the UK economy since the '70's with no respect to the poorer working population who will sadly pay the price for this ruinous dogma. Why should Stephen care, he will happily raise a glass of Champagne at an overseas residence and say "I told you so", and will likely place yet another personal homage to his endless wisdom on YouTube. Brexit has become as difficult as 'Remain' is making it. Will you be raising a glass with Stephen?
