So England AND Wales did want to separate.

*slow clap*

Well done, you actually sort of admitted you made a mistake claiming ONLY England wanted to go.

The map isn't that clear on Wales

It's as clear on Wales as it is on Scotland.

The point is that

The point is that you were flat out, demonstrably incorrect. It's quite entertaining seeing you forced to concecde with the minimum possible grace :)

They're trying to show how anti-PC they are, and in general, these days, being anti-PC largely seems to be the equivalent of being obnoxious and rude.

Well, that's pretty much where PC came from. As in "Don't say these things if you're a politician because people will think you're an arsehole and won't vote for you".

Since you're getting praise above for prolific commenting, I'd like to state the opposite

And I'd like to chime in again with the opposite to you.

There's nothing someone lacking the slightest shred of common courtesy dislikes more than finding someone who won't stay quiet and not call them a dickhead.

Or, if you prefer, "The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good Men Do Nothing".

And the most likely thing, the people with the inane opinions about insisting on calling transsexuals by their birth assigned gender do not actually have a rational reason for doing so. It's quite clear most of them have an emotional hatred of such people and appear to want to be passive aggressive. None of the reasoning stands up to logic, so they are given the choice:

1. Realise that the argument they're using does not give the answer they want, so change their opinion.
2. Realise that the argument they're using does not give the answer they want, so change the argument.
3. Get angry and whine that people won't accept their broken logic and SHUT UP.

Congratulations, you chose... 3!

One, Compelling a person to say things is kind of tyrannical, isn't it?

Except no one's compelling you, clearly, because you appear to still be completely free to act like a douchenozzle, your posts being ample evidence that no one has forced you to stop (despite your histrionics on the matter).

So the question is this: you are free to be a wanker, but why do you choose to be so?

This mate is why remain lost, and the pollsters, the politicians,

So, remain lost because the leavers WANTED to take sides in battle of the Toffs? Tell me, which Eton toff did you back in the fight? Johnson or Cameron? You wanted to send the politicians a message by handing them more power, specifically giving a bunch of Tory Toffs precisely what they want?

I think it's indeed fair to say I truly don't understand the mindset that it's somehow a point of principle to keep shoving even more silver spoons up the Tories uh... mouths.

the banks and the market speculators all got it so badly wrong.

You do realise Brexit hasn't happened yet, right?

You said this:

Given that the only part that actually wanted to separate from the EU was England

You are simply flat-out wrong. Your "proof" was to show a map showing that both England and Wales voted leave.

What exactly is the Wikipedia article supposed to tell me?

That Wales exists. And that if you knew that, you wouldn't have posted a map showing that England and Wales voted leave in order to prove that only England wanted to leave.

I look forwards to you not admitting your mistake.

Talk about fake news. And from the BBC, too, I really don't know who to believe anymore!

I like how you (a) make shit up, then (b) post a link being smugly sarcastic about fake news that literally says the opposite of what you're saying.

Thanks AC for bringing us this nugget of truth.

Well indeed, it seems to be the truth that you are unable to handle given you didn't even bother looking at the link you posted. Or do you think this is fake news too:
