I really don't think all the name-calling is helpful. It also isn't helpful that quite often, fairly polite comments are interpreted as offensive.
Tortellini's comment may have been politely phrased, but the meaning was clear, and especially when it was ended with "wacko" emoticon.
There was some research recently that showed that only 2 out of 10 Brexiteers would admit to having voted Leave, whereas 8 of 10 Remainers would admit to their vote. I suggest this is because Brexiteers know that many Remainers have no compunction about telling Brexiteers that they are racist, stupid and “little Englanders”. I’ve had this myself in real life, not just on this thread. I only picked up on Tortellini’s comment because I hadn’t heard this particular epithet before, which was quite clearly that I hadn’t got any morality in voting the way I did, which is obviously offensive, and as Tortellini hasn't denied it, it was clearly deliberately so. But as I said, it's only what people who voted Leave have got used to from some Remainers, although being accused of these things, by people who have no respect for contrary views, does not make them true.
