    When you get into a discussion of a sensitive subject with a BA student such as Government policy, Brexit, Hunting, Immigration. You have a differing opinion of something that doesn't support their point of view and they proceed to tell you need to "educate yourself" then tell you something you have heard a million times and heard all the counter arguments.

    Stupid isn't it, that particular brand of anus preaches so much about free speech and individualism but any opinion different to theirs is wrong and you should hate yourself for even allowing the thought to enter your head!

    Yes the old “do your research” response. Interesting that they claim to have done so much themselves, but are unable to provide any of the information they have supposedly garnered. You can only gauge how much research you’ve done by comparing your own knowledge to somebody else’s.

    A particular annoyance for me are those who deploy misinformed, bad science arguments to allege that the Apollo moon landings never happened.

    Exactly, in my experience most leave voters new they were taking a risk therefore did the research. Many remain voters just voted for the status quo and dont actually know what the EU does. Until they lost then it became the only thing that keeps us from a nuclear holocaust!

    There's a long list of things that annoy me. Towards the top of the list are the ads that precede every YouTube pick. For me it is an almost constant stream of suggestions that I use Grammarly which is an app for Americans who have anxiety about speeling and other righting stuff.

    But I suppose it's better than the funeral plan ads.

    Reminded me of when a friend said that anyone who voted leave was an idiot and shouldnt have been allowed to vote. When I asked why they should've voted remain he didn't actually have any reasons. Not to mention the million other things wrong with that statement.
