    Why would it be seen as more acceptable post Brexit than before? It was a bad and unacceptable joke before, it is now and will be in the future. Racism did not start and will not end with Brexit and we can't blame Brexit for everything, no matter how much many people would like to.

    Well I did ask 'Is it?' not say 'It is' !
    Much of what you say is true but you're missing the point. Are you saying this tweet is not Brexit related?
    There wouldn't have been a reference to a hard border before brexit. There also wouldn't have been a suggestion that Ireland wouldn't have voted for Britain pre Brexit because historically there has been a general well reciprocated vote for each countries song entries.

    People say stupid things in all walks of life, that wont stop but this is written out and published online by an elected political figure (not for much longer probably).

    ...and so we most certainly can blame Brexit for this idiots tweet.

    note to self: be careful and judicious when using words such as 'idiot' in the context of a Leaver - but I think this time I may have got away with it
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    You can call individuals idiots, no problem, you can call politicians idiots, no problem, but your continued reference to leavers as apposed to individuals is a problem (with me) . This tweet was by someone who happened to be a leaver, there is a fair chance he is also a Christian. Does that mean we (you) class all Christians as idiots, I think not.

    I'd also take issue with the use of the term "blame" in this context. Many don't see Brexit as bad, in fact its good for them.

    I think that's MOST going by the vote.

    Wrong!

    If any 'blame' is to be assigned, it's associated with/related to Eurovision voting!

    The Brexit reference was merely 'topical'

    Your 'idiot' description was certainly correct (if not grammatically so) though!

    eh? - some Christians are idiots. Some Leavers are idiots. Some Remainers are idiots. That OK?

    And btw - I NEVER say ALL Leavers are idiots.

    I would suggest that the comment was made in the context of the ESC but has as it's basis Brexit - since there is no Eire/NI border question outside of Brexit.
