It's a discussion about the English language. Have anything on-topic to add rather than trying to take another thread off-topic?

*yawn* Another Brexit-bash thread from WelshDeals.

You know the nonsense that Time pulled recently? https://www.google.co.uk/amp/amp.timeinc.net/time/4551711/hillary-clinton-emailgate/

They are so desperate it's pathetic.

Obvs. who made this "word of the year" was a remainer!

Brexiteer is word of the decade! The brave soles who campaigned and voted for what is right!

Come forth gallant, bold, rightful Brexiteers and like this post!

You honoured citizen who's action can never be underestimated or overruled.

Perfect post as an example of this. It's a post that appeals to 'emotion and personal belief' rather than objective facts.

Thank you. <3

I'm asking why it's weird that you wouldn't have read or heard it used.

Personally it's come up a tremendous amount in news coverage, specifically editorial and comment, and I've witnessed it used a lot by normal people discussing Trump, Brexit and news media in general.

The media is against Brexit so go figure they wouldn't take a chance at it.

It's not surprising that a majority of the media is against it when you consider the sort of background they tend to come from, their levels of education etc.
