Thread after thread on the referendum. Huge spiteful comments between each group.

It's like watching the start of war on TV with two camps either side screaming insults at each other.

Fed up with it all. Bring back the normal threads where we read shocking stories of parking threads, ridiculous cases of entitlement and just general laughter and banter.

What's done is done and no amount of outrage will change that!

The thing is that it's not 'done'

Whatever side your on we're all living with this shit for decades

But here's a cat to keep us entertained grin

It's hardly surprising that people are reacting to this. It's an absolutely massive thing that's going to impact on all of us.

Perhaps you should just step away from social media for a few weeks if you don't want to hear people venting feelings about this?

It's just too soon. Give us outraged upset people more time to get our head around things. We'll move on and make the best of it eventually - but today's not the day.

Hah mine did that the other week Laurie and then promptly fell in! She keeps a wide berth from it now

Come to the sex topic

You can get accused of never having had a decent fuck

Speaking as someone on a few referendum threads, sorry if my being worried about the economy and political stability of my country is bothering you. Maybe if you were at risk of losing your job or living in a place where the heightening of sectarian tensions could affect your family's safety you might feel differently.

Or even a laugh grin

Look I get its a shock and people are getting over it but is it really necessary for all the threads repeating the same thing over and over again?

At one point the entire page of AIBU and Chat were both full of these threads! Why?

MadAboutFourteen Fri 24-Jun-16 20:12:10

Did OP vote leave then?

PatronIcingBardStarred Fri 24-Jun-16 20:12:50

If it wasn't, I'd be worried about the collective intelligence of mumnetters.

Love the cat pics, really needed something to sooth me smile

Nigel Farage is evil trash

Because it's a big deal for some of us. confused

KittensandKnitting Fri 24-Jun-16 20:14:41

I'm liking the cats!

Not that it matters but no I didn't.

Any ways pic of the daft cat who got a wet bath

can't believe so many people fell for his lies and have wrecked this nation for the next few decades

Ahhhh, feeling so much better.

BIWI Fri 24-Jun-16 20:16:15

Because a lot of people are angry, hurt, worried and need to talk about it.

If you don't appreciate that or empathise with people's needs, then why not just leave MN for a couple of days?

Your cute cat can stay, though wink

LaurieFairyCake Fri 24-Jun-16 20:20:45

Can we have more cat pictures - those were great

Here's some lavender to calm us down

Thornrose Fri 24-Jun-16 20:21:30

Do you genuinely not understand why people want to talk about this? Normal services will be resumed in the next couple of days. At the moment it's a huge deal and I for one need to talk about it.

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Fri 24-Jun-16 20:21:44

I've never ventured down the sex topic.
