‘First Dates’ encounter between Brexiteer and Remainer exposes deep divisions remaining in UK

Lettie, the Tory Brexiteer [Image: Channel 4/First Dates].

The United Kingdom remains a nation divided in all but name, thanks to the idiotic decision by Tory David Cameron to hold a referendum on our membership of the European Union to maintain unity in his own Parliamentary party.

His gambit didn’t work, by the way.

The cracks are even showing on reality TV, as this article in The Lad Bible demonstrates:

It’s divided a nation for over a year, so you can imagine it also split opinion on a first date also.

Twenty-three-year-old Lettie, a political activist, was set up on a date with Cambridge graduate Fred, 26, on Channel 4’s First Dates.

It was an obvious question for two educated, politically-minded individuals. And with one opting for leave, with the other remain, you can imagine that settled well.

Fred… asked: “When you came in here, were you hoping for someone of the same political bent?”

Lettie answered no, but then Brexit arrived. She herself a leaver, soon discovered that she was sat face-to-face with a remainer.

“Let’s struggle gamely on, as Boris Johnson would say,” joked Fred. It left a nice awkward silence between the pair.

It was not to be. Just like Britain and the EU, it appears the second date did not end well. In the closing sequences to First Dates, we are told the pair ‘struggled to maintain a united front’ and that ‘both plan to stay in the single market for now’.

    There always has been a divide between those who believe in the UK, and those who claim all brits are lazy incompetent and need an unelected committee of failed foreign politicians to tell us what to do, and an inundation of unskilled unemployed people form eastern eu, to do all the work. Cameron proved beyond reasonable doubt that a, we had no influence in the eu, b, The eu can not be reformed, and c, the eu is inherently democratically deficient.

      Kwasi Kwarteng would say he believes in the UK – he campaigned for us to leave the European Union. He was also a contributor to Britannia Unchained, a book written in collaboration with four other Tory MPs of the time (2012) who claimed all Brits are lazy and incompetent. Where does he stand, in relation to your divide.
      As for what Cameron proved: He proved he couldn’t negotiate his way out of a paper bag. His demands were childish and unrealistic. If he had brought something useful to the table, the EU-rocrats might have listened.

    There has been a divide in this country, regarding the European situation, since we joined the E.C. Was Call-Me-Dave even born, then? The E.U. as I see it, for which none of us voted, is incapable of reform, it most certainly appears that way. I am not opposed to European cooperation but not this union. There have been many changes, since we voted to join the E.C., something about which many of those who voted us in say they were lied to. There have been several Treaties about which we have had no say, or input and the detail is in these treaties and their amendments. This country has been divided on this issue for as long as I can remember and continues to be. The latest referendum (allegedly, we were supposed to have one prior to the £isbon Treaty, I think it was) has merely brought the issue into the open, which, in the interests of democracy, is a good thing; the whole country is suddenly politically engaged. I just wish that more of the facts regarding the E.U. were at large in public discourse, rather than consequential things. We might be less inclined to fight the way that we are, if we all have a better understanding of the institution, how it works, what is does and what it is supposed to do. Until this happens, Thesresa May and her Children Of Destruction will continue on their path to who knows where and nobody will understand why, nor where we are going.
