They're not the only topics discussed on here, not by a long way, so if you say they are you're either incredibly stupid or else trying to get a reaction.Winegums wrote: ↑Sun Jun 23, 2019 5:42 pmOf course they're big topics, and of course they will command the lion's share of day-to-day discussion, but it's obsessive. In every other political space I'm involved with we discuss brexit, but it isn't all we talk about. This thread is a good example, a clear delineation from brexit and Corbyn, and yet here we are, discussing them again.davidjay wrote: ↑Sun Jun 23, 2019 11:40 amThey aren't the only two topics, although as you only ever see what you want to see, it's an understandable mistake.
However, they are the two most popular topics. Now, given that this forum is largely made up of politically aware, largely Labour-sympathetic posters, why do you think that is, bearing in mind that these two are the Labour leader and the biggest political story for seventy years?
The obsession with brexit is a centrist brainspider problem e.g. every time Corbyn tweets some genius replies "YEAH BUT STOP BREXIT #FBPE #WATON", whether or not it's relevant to the topic at hand.
We've got democracy! Who needs solidarity?
