Re: Does democracy work if people based their vote on lies^Wpost-facts?@JohnHWoods
I concur. It may seem a glib explanation, but it doesn't make it any less true that xenophobia was a large factor in how people voted - look how many St George's have gone up on honest-to-god flagpoles at the end of people's gardens. Racism reimagined as politics.
If you aren't happy with your lot, or that of your children, there's one way to change it, and it's the same one as it's always been - EDUCATION. Educate yourself better.
Denigrating foreigners is easier, though, and is more compatible with getting pissed, innit?

Was this story a first draft? What's wrong with these paragraphs...
Overall, the North West gets only per cent of total UK grants from Innovate UK, and Yorks/Humber only five per cent, while London gets 25 per cent and the South East 17 per cent. This means that hundreds of hard-pressed engineering firms in the north have been deprived of adequate support.
Instead, dozens of doubtful digital media firms – which hardly need the cash – have been millions of pounds – but will little tangle result in nearly all cases
What sort of choice does anyone ever have over buses? You get on the one that turns up - it's either the quick one, that goes straight there, or the other one, that goes 'round all-the-houses. And you only get to make that choice if you've got no need to be at your destination for a particular time, on any route in Manchester other than down Oxford Road! Christ, whaddaloddabollox!
Re: Love that last paragraph
Your closing sentence sums it up for me. If I'd created something to make me money, a platform which, in spite of its other good points, was a vector for this awful trade, and I knew this... BUT...it was within my power to make it as difficult as possible for these people, and I wasn't...well...I'd look at my money and think that not all of it was clean. As a person, I'd think this. Safe harbour be damned, I'd still feel responsible.
