The irony is he represents the Brexit mentality doesn't he? Its just that he's Spanish.
If there was a corresponding video of a Brit expressing the same sentiments towards a Spanish citizen being denied UK entry you would be up in arms.

A typical hypocrite post and you are easily fooled by bringing in a random bigot off the street to fit an agenda
You have shown your true colours on this one. Championing a bigot - well done
Does Spain have a shortage of qualified dentists ?

You do yourself no favours adi. You complain about people having a go at you yet call people clowns.
You say a poster has no self awareness while denying being sneering when it plain to see you are. I even agree with the foundation of your posts being a remainer but you clearly cant see what others see in the way you post.
You come across as a bitter twisted ,condescending man who can't get over the fact that more than half those who voted went for leave.
Not the right decision for me but one I accept living in a democracy.
In fact you come across as such a bore you can go on my ignore list . It's a special place for you where there is only one other person.

As you can imagine, I’m devastated to wake up to these posts. Not sure how I’ll carry on.

Meanwhile the Brexit related violence in Ireland continues. This is where lying ultimately gets you.
The brexiteers will continue to ignore. It's not on the BBC so therefore the riots in Northern Ireland aren't happening. England is going to become a very isolated and poor little country isn't it?

I listened to Arlene Foster (on the BBC) talking about 'the elite' Sinn Fein and implying how cosy they are with the PSNI this morning.

The hard of thinking will be repeating it across social media.

Didn't hear AF this morning but heard the Justice Minister before 8 (Naomi Long iirc?) who was quite (and quietly) impressive, I thought.

There’s a clip online of a half pi$$ed Johnson lying to a group of business people at some kind of function...telling them all the things they’ve heard about the checks and extra paperwork are all untrue, and if they had any problems, to get in touch with him directly and he would sort it.
Then it’s reported the DUP had meetings with various paramilitary groups 2-3 weeks ago. Now seemingly out of nowhere it’s kicking off. Absolutely nothing to do with those meetings of course!
Then in the last 24 hours various spokespersons from the DUP claiming it’s somehow the fault of Sinn Fein.
Johnson’s lies never seem to have self consequences. But this time it could get very, very serious for a lot of people.

There is a certain inevitability about it sadly. All the problems coming home to roost and one of the most important political moments for a generation at least being put at risk by a bunch of chancers and charlatans.

I think you are mistaking satire for hypocrisy and bigotry,

'The irony is he represents the Brexit mentality doesn't he'

The irony is surely that you acknowledge that, acknowledge that the Brexit mentality was one of bigotry, condemn this as a bad thing when it is directed at Brexiters, yet seemingly don't condemn it when it is from Brexiters?

Also, Remainers are up in arms about the removal of the automatic FOM rights for British citizens wishing to move, work and reside in the EU AND the hostile and discouraging message the UK has given out to current and potential immigrants that they are not welcome here, leading to a brain drain in some fields and acute shortages of labour in others such as the NHS and care sector and fruit picking.

I had to unignore to read the post to which you were repyling. Wow. That is quite an amazing take on my posting a funny video! And of course your response is perfect @Lefty
