Seeing this:
got me thinking, can it get more messy than it is right now? Britain seems split in two, leave or remain, one side will lose in the next few months, but what happens then?
The media are reporting that there are calls for mass civil disobedience but about leavers who will feel cheated if we stay in the EU.
I hope and pray cool heads will prevail but right now with the crazy politics we have going on, nothing would surprise me.

I blame the forced pressure from globalists supplanted within the media, entertainment and establishment government

They have used propaganda to work on peoples sympathies and basic human decency in order to derive an open globe for the 1% to pillage at leisure. All the while pushing massive machiavellian divides amongst the peoples of every nation to mask their greed and power machinations.

Britain and the US are suffering much the same imo, heck all of Europe too.

A collective howl from the Waitrose shopping set "whaaa, whaaa, we are superior, we refuse to accept losing, don't disturb my comfy life, whaa".

They are best just laughed at then ignored.

These lot are so hypocritical, its unbelievable. They March to shut down free speech and democracy, then March again to uphold democracy!

The strange thing is they don't even recognise their own hypocricy!

There won't be a civil war, most are scared of a little rain.

Behold what a bunch of sore losers look like.

For any Britons who recall the 1970s --

How does the tension compare to then? I've heard there was a lot of tension back then, Scargill, Thatcher, and all that.

Cheers

Typical. You say you are in favour of freedom, yet you are in favour of Brexit, which in effect will toss your ass back in to the greedy hands of borderline dictators like Johnson. Sure.

Oh, I see so you prefer a UN/EU un representative governance?

Brilliant, we overcame that in the West a couple hundred years ago

Frankly, I think it's going to fizzle out. These people only protest at weekends. They believe in verbal violence rather than physical violence. If Brexit is carried through and becomes irrevocable, then protest will lose its point.

In the 70's, there was fear of social breakdown rather than actual breakdown. Thanks to the fact that nobody could control strikes, the papers were saying "the country has become ungovernable". There was a notorious case of a newspaper proprietor trying to get a coup going (the intended figurehead turned down the offer). Maggie Thatcher, then only party leader, showed television cameras the food cupboard she kept stocked for social breakdown emergencies, and many people were thinking in those terms. But it stayed at the tension level.
Having said that, look up "the Winter of Discontent"(1979). There was a definite sense of emergency when everybody in service industries seemed to be striking at once. Jim Callaghan, as Prime Minister, came back from a conference in the Caribbean and tried to make soothing noises, which one paper helpfully paraphrased as "Crisis? What crisis?" That was why Maggie won the election which was held a couple of months later.

Violence in the slightly later Thatcher/Scargill era was mainly striking miners aganist poilce, and individual hostilty against "blacklegs".

Dogs, helicopters, mounted police and sectarian violence. Sounds like football in the 80s.

Can somebody explain to me why they keep chanting "stop the coup" please? Surely it is they that are trying to create a 'coup' by trying to stop democratic process?

Also had to laugh at the last bit of clip in the OP with the woman singing the Welsh National anthem....Wales voted by a huge majority to leave!!!

Crowds were huge weren't they.....NOT!

That's the only time you would see some serious kind of civil unrest in this country, if their beloved football was to be taken away.
