    yeah it was more a comment by him that it seems like so many of the people harassing folks post-brexit are doing it based solely on how they *think* they look

    so you get some of my friends getting harassed because they look like they're german (whatever the difference is...) and are indeed from Germany, and then you have some of my other friends who were born and raised in the UK but their grandparents are from Italy also getting harassed because they look even slightly different

    it's madness

    Why is half his head shaved?

    Also, how much does the guy in front of him wish he could just whip around and smash that asshole's teeth in with that mace?

    I've noticed that all the suspected leave voters on my friends list (suspected because I don't know for absolute certain) are all making a lot of statuses going, 'haha everyone... let's just get along, why don't we... why be so angry, this is a time to unite...'

    Maybe they should have thought of that earlier...

    Mixed feelings about the Corbyn situation. On the one hand he was a major let down for the remain campaign, on the other we need a united front against whatever beast rears it's head as leader of the tories.

    Plus he says such nice things. Nothing bad ever came of trusting a politician who says nice things.

    Ah yes, time to unite. But only certain people. Don't want to unite with the wrong sort, you know.

    Good news: sister and BiL and have been told their jobs aren't in immediate risk.
    Bad news: still having to be careful of what happens to their mortgage and whether they have to wait to start a family.
    Good news: BiL has Irish citizenship they can use to go over if worst comes to worst.

    Bad news: my industry is still massively tied to the EU.
    Good news: if I got a job in Scotland or Ireland I could apply for citizenship after x years but that'd be if Im even wanted.

    I really hope their statuses are indicative of them feeling a little shame

    An "Awesome" doesn't quite feel appropriate here, so I'm glad things aren't entirely fucked for you and your family right now and that you have some contingency plans, and I am going to continue to hope that things work out.

    The tweet I've seen this go with goes along the lines of:

    "When you're half-way done with your haircut and your barber tells you he's Turkish..."

    Honestly, I would be sad to see Scotland leave the union but EU membership was a major part of the stay campaign.

    Now that's out the window, they are completely justified to leave.

    I had a flash of inspiration yesterday, that maybe having an Austrian grandparent meant I could claim dual citizenship. Turns out Austria isn't big on that. So yes please.

    Interesting note: by Tory rules, if a PM losses a no confidence vote, he must resign immediately.

    When they were writing the Labour rules, they left that out because it seemed obvious a PM would have to resign in that situation.

    Whoops!

    Jeremy Corbyn is a good and decent man who should never had been leader of the party because he's not good at leadership.

    After checking up on everything that's been going on today I'm somewhere between helpless anger and despondency.

    So all the hugs to you Brits who have to deal with this up close.

    I don't know much about him, but refusing to step aside when his entire team and 80% of his party's MPs ask him to suggests he's putting his own ego and ambition ahead of the party, which is not a good look. I'm also concerned by the way that one MP felt she needed to justify her resignation in the face of threats and accusations from Corbyn supporters.

    Shades of Bernie Sanders and his supporters' less admirable qualities.
