    He obviously never believed in Brexit and like all the other tossers is just trying to thow spanners in the works. He is too young to have experienced life before the protectionist rule bound EU and his whole mindset has been scrambled by mountains of red tape.

    Look forward to his new party emerging and forcing another referendum. The Brexit process is showing up the EU and its various unelected undemocratic bigwigs and toothless so called parliament for what they actually are. One thing is for sure none of them have Britains interests at heart. All they seem to want is screw us which they succeeded in achieving comprehensively before the referendum.

    Demoaners? What even is that?

    How about Despairing European Anti-Democracy Party? Or better Remainers Independent Party. Or maybe European United Revolutionary Organisation?

    Your question is answered in the headline, he wants to call it “The Democrats”, a name that's as unoriginal as it is uninspiring.

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?
