Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Brexit has already destabilised the British Economy and is hurting large numbers of British people - the warning from the economists that Brexit would make it impossible to plan for at least 20 years has already become an widely accepted fact
Brexit hasn't happened, so it cannot have destabilised anything. Fear brought on by the result of the referendum may have, but that is not the same thing.
More 'Project Fear'.
Is it worth pointing out that a supposition is not the same as a fact?
Or that the term 'widely accepted fact' is one only used by those who don't understand the word 'fact'?
A fact is something that is true. It is not something for which the validity changes depending on how widely it is accepted.
