    If brexit wasn't so serious, it would be funny. I heard the transport secretary this afternoon, what a joke this man is.

    We don't hold any cards, and there have been no negotiations.

    Guess you are right seeing they spelt the tweet correctly.

    But I have seen and heard similar from others, blaming the EU for things they are not responsible for.

    When challenged re what legislation they accuse the EU of implementing it's no surprise they cannot give an answer.

    They just like to blame the EU for anything they don't like!

    You guessed correctly that I'm right, but not for the reason you think. I read through the list of tweets, and it's a fake account.

    In the past, I've seen people accuse the Nazis of things they were not responsible for, but they were still correct to hate them for the things they *were* responsible for.

    They don't need to give a single example of legislation they accuse the EU of implementing. All they need to say is "any of the legislation", as any legislation from the EU is counter to the principle for which they voted, which was for the UK to be a self-governing nation once again.
    We can copy ideas from abroad if we like them, but we must not have them imposed upon us by a foreign government, whether good or bad.

    After nearly three years, haven't you worked out that they voted for a principle?
    They weren't weighing up the pros and cons. They weren't thinking "how much money is in it for me?". It didn't occur to them to work out a price at which they would be willing to sell the rights of other people's children.
    That's why the country has been so split, as the vote exposed that there are two very different types of people.

    It seems pretty obvious that there are very many different types of people. Not everyone voted to remain for the same reasons that I did, and not everyone voted leave for the same reasons that you did.

    I agree, but I bet your bottom dollar(should be pound but doesn't sound so good) that it's pretty close to why the majority did
