I haven't shut down your views : how can I shut down your views? You can shut down mine, though.You extrapolated my saying Grieve "became a bit of a lunatic EU-wise" to saying "...and in fact all Remainers are disrespected by you and classified as 'lunatics'..."
This is patently absurd extrapolation and clearly nothing that I have said or even implied. And as I say, not the first (nor probably the last) time you have used a sledgehammer to crack a nut.
As for young voters, I made what I believe to be a valid observation that the Glorious Leader promising to wipe out student debt might have bought some of their votes - the evidence is there in places like Canterbury, a student-heavy place where, for the first time, Labour won the seat. This is not to "disrespect" young voters at all, let alone prompt one of your semi-regular rants. EDIT: If I were a 21 year old first time voter with the prospect of £30k+ debt and a leader said "I'll deal with it (student debt)", heck I'd be tempted.
But hey, if you wish to shut down opposition views by drifting into hyperbole, then you may find an echo chamber more soothing.
I have shown up your views to be completely biased and your comments often to be evasive or avoiding reality. If you are unable to handle that well that's not my problem, but I certainly can't let you get away with blase or ersatz elitist but ineffective put-downs whenever you can't debate precisely the issues raised. You are the one that has done your best to turn the thread into a party political broadcast on behalf of the Conservative Party so some of us feel the need to challenge that.
