...But we can’t insulate ourselves from the outside world. Someone posted this excerpt from Question Time on Facebook, with the comment:
“Ian Hislop says those who voted remain can still have their say, despite the UK voting to leave the EU.”
Many ‘shares’ and comments appear below the video, including:
“It is a ridiculous fuck-up. General election now - Corbyn for PM.”
“We might end up with a socialist government out of this, Oh how I hope for that.”
“Or just ignore the results of the referendum”
“It wasn’t a mandate.”
Let me just say (forgive the repetition) I do not have a Facebook account. This was posted by adults on someone’s timeline. (That someone wisely chooses not to engage in political discussions on Facebook.)
There have been avalanches of posts of a similar nature (citing both Corbyn and Bernie Sanders) on Facebook for months.
Does it make you wonder why so many people appear to be completely confident that continually sharing their opinions on Facebook is acceptable?
Also, why do they assume that the extreme political left is the norm?
As they say on t’interweb, am I missing something?
