What the fuck!? The thread formally known as "I haven't heard a single compelling reason for Britain to leave the EU."
That's probably, and sadly, true. Politics Home has taken down his "obnoxious bigots" article , he's recently joined twitter, and clearly has been taking PR lessons.

Like watching a slow motion car crash where you're trapped in the backseat and the child locks are on.

FWIW

I've been trying to pay more attention to UK politics thanks to all this stuff, (by listening to James O'Brien roast people mostly, which might be a bit one eyed...) but I think my biggest takeaway, the thing I'm tired of the most is Brexit.
Not the UK leaving the EU, but the word Brexit. It's a godawful Sun headline chimera word that has no business being anywhere near a hansard or any official document . And now it's a permanent fixture of the great English language. Just terrible.

Ha I was thinking that just the other day. I get that it's clunky to have to say "Britain's exit from the EU" every time, but "Brexit" is basically the geopolitical Brangelina.

I don't know. An ugly, tiresome, unnecessary word pretty much epitomises an ugly, tiresome, unnecessary endeavour. 

O'Brien is pretty good. Yes, he's very much part of the bubble, and sometimes he loses a grip on precision for the sake of rhetoric, but the balance of evidence based argument versus simple talking points is good and he will forever be a favourite of mine for being one of the few (maybe the only one) who successfully goaded Farage into showing his true colours.
