    Batshit crazy is the continued support of the abomination called the
    European Union. That’s a fact.

    All this crap misses the biggest and most important problem with remaining:
    Britain gives up its sovereignty. Enjoy being ruled over by un-elected
    foreigners, I’m sure that’s a much better fate than enduring some vague
    amount of short term economic problems. I mean, it’s not like people fight
    and die for their country to be free or anything.

    Normaly i quite like these monologues, but this one was totally one sided.
    i get that john is someone who will vote to remain, but i expected him to
    “attack” the arguments of both sides

    You demonstrate that you hate the country of your birth every show. You
    repeatedly say that the UK gave small pox blankets to the indigenous
    population of the USA. 1. the story is that the USA did this not the UK. 2.
    The US never did this either. Clearly you hate your country of birth. You
    are often very funny, but too often, you are a prick.

    So basically the big banks have bought off this shill who agrees with Obama
    who is pro shit like the TPP. Basically John Oliver is a piece of shit
    shill who is paid to come up with hypocritical bullshit like Drumf. It’s
    clear that he doesn’t know even a single thing about economic sovereignty
    or sovereignty at all for that matter.

    Supreme Leader Donald Trump will declare himself High Lord of the European
    United Kingdom to save them from themselves. And an added bonus of being
    European royalty is that Donald Trump can marry his daughter and keep his
    bloodline pure.

    If you Brits had a mind of your own, or any sense of pride left, you’d vote
    how YOU want to vote. Don’t vote on Oliver’s words alone. Do your own
    research first. You Brits STILL can think for yourselves, can’t you?

    Don’t listen to Micheal fucking Gove, he basically wanted to destroy

    less. He only got the job to be in charge of the schools because he was
    David Cameron’s mate and now he is the Justice Secretary for the same
    reason.

    It is the same as the rise of Trump. Racism is a bigger issue that most
    believe. The more Trump talks about mexicans and arabs, the stronger his
    supporters flock to him. Brexit is all about immigation and racism.

    thank you for this, it’s been a long time but ever since Jon left us and
    grew a beard, it feels like all of the news sources shat the bed. at what
    point does Comedy become News? because this provides more substantial and
    logical information then those videos categorized as news when it’s about
    “who’s celebrity dog is obese find out at 10” I would argue that you are
    the most legitimate journalist reporting on the genuine problems the world
    is experiencing. Screw your dad you have clearly differentiate yourself
    from Stewart and found your own birdy-niche

    the same argument was made to INDIA when we were fighting for our freedom
    from UK (the racist invaders), and yes we did suffer economic hardship
    later. But now we are much stronger.
    the bloods of our freedom fighters did not go in vain, we are proud of our
    race our culture. and have an ascending path.
    Don’t fall for short term materialistic benefits, think centuries ahead.

    I support the Brexit. The EU can trade freely with the rest of the world,
    and there are so many European countries with economic problems. The UK is
    one of the three biggest contributors to the economic stability of the EU.
    Them leaving will force the EU to correct its current malfunctions.

    The EU consists of a large, unelected group of people from across Europe
    who pass laws which affect people in Britain, we get a 1/28 vote despite
    paying 1/8 of the cash. For this reason, the EU is great for countries like
    Poland and Turkey, places that aren’t very stable.

    My father works in a warehouse, most of it’s employees are Polish or
    Latvian, and they are all voting to leave. The reason? Because some of the
    more recent arrivals travelled through Germany & France on there way to
    Britain, they’ve seen what it’s like over there and they don’t want it to
    get like that here. That’s good enough for me, unless you’d rather listen
    to a hessian wearing dreamcatcher toting Kumbaya singing airhead.

    In that “Brexit. The Movie” there was also destruction of south fishing,

    decision making of international events from London, and I think these were
    the main points of the argument. Why not adressing these ?
