"Angry"? What does angry even mean in this context? And what is an excessive attitude? Or did you expect to keep all your privileges because you're oh-so-special or something? Seriously, get over yourselves. You fucked up, don't blame it on big bad Europe.

And that "we're so insignificant" comment - that's not even playground level, sorry. This is now how the grown-up world works. Or how it should work, at least. Of course, seeing the level of your leaders, it does sound about right Drinking Beverage

Vera where did I ever say we should keep our privileges or that we are oh so special ? I never said that. Why are you so fucking angry about this ?

Again with the angry. Do I *seem* angry? Every time I post a (British) meme about Brexit, you claim that Europe is pissed, upset and angry and "reacting excessively". I ask you for an example of this European anger and I am accused of also being angry.

Not sure which one of us is the one with the problem Drinking Beverage

To be perfectly honest Vera, you do seem kinda angry to me and I'm sorry if that upsets you or spoils things between us but there it is, I voted remain and I would always vote remain and if I had the chance to change things I would. But the memes regardless of where they hail from seem like jabs at the very nearly 50% of us who voted to stay, its a shitty situation but I'm the one living it not you.

Let me make it absolutely clear - I am not angry.

The memes are British. From what I've read on the sites I've found them, it's BRITISH people trying to deal with the shitty situation that's been forced on them, by means of the one thing they can think of - humour. If it doesn't work for you - you do not have to read the thread.

And I didn't know the only people who could laugh or even talk about something are the ones directly involved in it. I guess all us, non-Americans, are now not allowed to comment, laugh or have any opinion whatsoever on Trump because we are not the one living it?

Fair comment I guess, its just the future is so uncertain now it's rather scary us remains are more than a little worried about stuff but you're right humour should help and I appear to have lost mine somewhat, sorry my bad.

No worries, I know it cannot be easy. But those are definitely someone else's - in your exact same boat - attempts at dealing with it. Also, for the record, they are certainly not jabs at those who voted to remain.

Let me just remind you, that I've lived through communism (okay, not that I remember much Wink), but the main - and best - way people had of dealing with it (and trust me, it was much much worse than this) was humour. The political humour in my country and in Russia, in particular, was of the highest quality. As good a way of dealing with shit, as any, really...

These guys are my (and my family's) favourite.

RE: I don't know dick about Limey politics but ...
The sheer stupidity of the Brexit trainwreck is utterly breathtaking, that's why I'm pissed. The main stupidity was with the idiots who let there be a vote on a complex economic issue in the first place, but it's been further compounded ever since.

It's not like this doesn't affect the rest of the world. Even if we don't live there, a lot of us have savings invested in the UK - I do anyway. Family who live there too. And we're watching this utterly predictable slow motion total fuck up and we're supposed to what? Keep a stiff upper lip? Tally ho? "I suppose it's just the Brits' business if they want to destabilise the whole of Europe for shits and giggles". Rolleyes

Mind you, the main reason I'm annoyed is firstly that incompetence always makes me rage and secondly that all the fuckwits are doing their fuckwit thing and gaily pretending that everything's just fine.

We'll love you just the way you are
