A Brexiter is indignant at the notion all leave voters are racist and choosing to feel butt-hurt about that rather than the pattern of racist abuse he has helped unleash.
Andrew Mann is refusing to be drawn into conversation on the disastrous early consequences of the referendum, saying only “I just think it’s wrong to say we’re all racist,” and then staring into the middle distance until everyone falls silent.
His behaviour has led some to ask who ever actually said that all Brexiters are racist.
The situation is causing awkward scenes for Mr Mann’s wife Amanda as she attempts to mediate between her husband and the couple’s pro-remain friends.
Mrs Mann said: “I do think it’s wrong to say that just because you voted to leave you’re a racist. I don’t blame him for being upset about that.
“Who was it that said it, dear? Oh yes, all the people. Tut-tut.”
Claire Smith of the neo-fascist town of Lancing, West Sussex, said: “A man came up to me in the street the other day and said ‘I voted leave, so why are you still here?’ and then tried to punch my child.
“But like everyone else right now, my main concern is the plight of white middle-class males finding themselves a bit lost for words at how shit their decision has already made everything.”
