The responses to this Brexit argument are as satisfying as a hearty meal
The editor of something called @LeaveHQ – the ‘Leave Alliance’ apparently – had this to say on Brexit. And let this be the last time we talk about Brexit this year.
My mum spent her life making dinners for the elderly on our street, popping her head round the door to check if all is well every other day. Now she's 70, nobody on the street will do the same for her. That's what's changed. That's why Brexiters want to "wind the clock back".

Except the argument stuck in some people’s throat. Here’s what people had to say.
Clearly the EU’s fault, that one.
But starting 1 April, 2019, people will line up at the doors of the elderly once again.

Will we have to go to the bottom of the garden for the toilet again? Will we have to get rid of the WiFi and central heating!? Only 3 channels on tv!?!?!!!

Pete, serious question, how many dinners have you made for the elderly on your street

Or for his mum?

This is a bizarre claim. Leaving the EU will bring back compassion?! You either have compassion or you don’t. What on earth does membership of the EU have to do with being selfless? If anything the vote has opened a Pandora’s box containing the exact opposite of compassion

I think he means there was a point in the past when The Human League was in the charts.

Oh yeah. I forgot about the EU directive that prevents people making dinner for the fucking elderly. Thanks for the reminder, Pete. https://t.co/XdrHxpLoS9

In the interests of balance, here’s what Pete had to say.
Only one thing for it – we’ll have to vote on it.
