They do not believe in new things or anything to do with the modern world.

They do not believe that things are all related to each other, so the idea that being part of Europe means we should try to work together makes no sense. Also, the idea that there should be a societal response to any problem (covid-19 or global warming) does not make sense.

Yes. It is almost as if the power is in teh hands of national Governments.

Yes, it's called democracy.

In the EU, nation states are now financially responsible for the decisions of other nations, which I assume you may agree with, but that is, by definition, not democracy. Perhaps there is always room for democracy to take a backseat now and then in the utopian worldview of people like you.

Yawn.

Still BS, mate, after all these years.

There is a certain type of person who is not as bright as they think they are.

They are bright enough to see that we do not really live in a perfect meritocracy. Also, because, they are not as bright as they think they are, they blame something for taking what is theirs. This is also why they are inclined to conspiracy theory.

For the demographic most likely to be brexity, the modern world seems to have taken their status from them. They then blame whatever is in vogue, Catholics, Jews, the EU etc.

To challenge them with reality (i.e. the UK called the referendum, it decided to leave, we left in February) then becomes pointless, as it would negate their fantasy. I really have more interest in discussing the die hard brexiters, as talking with them is pointless.

...which actually goes back to why covid cranks and brexit go together.

British Exceptionalism?

It is a pretty international thing. Trump supporters are more likely to like conspiracy theories too.

Not being as smart as you think you are is a biggie. We believe all sorts of nonsense as we do not question it, but when these people realise it, they think it is really clever of them, whereas more modest people would think it obvious.

Also, the things they don't understand, they immediately believe not to be true. And, things like the need for the EU, the emergence of a virus and global warming will be beyond the ken of most of us. If you think you are smarter than everyone else, then you are more likely to dismiss what you do not understand (and have not grown up with being shown as normal).

Added to that, people this smart will feel they are undervalued by modern society, and believe the old days would have been better for them i.e. it is the prizes for all, inclusive culture that is taking away from recognising how special they are.

Why have the Brexit cranks turned into Covid cranks with knobs on?

By EmmaRoid #FBPE#JC4PM#GTTO,

I think there are two types of Brexit Cranks that have mutated into two main types of COVID crank.

You have the middle England more genteel Brexit sheep, typically boomers or older, who have a somewhat ingrained feeling of superiority left over from the war. They are more likely to be the ones congratulating themselves on their self isolating and fanatically wearing masks.

Then you have the Brexit Ultras, these are the people nearer the top of the Brexit leadership and who fanatically pushed for Brexit and more typically had right wing affiliations. They are more likely to be the fanatics protesting against lockdown and claiming that CV19 is caused by 5G.
