I feel like probably I'm already about on Toastie Twitter a whole bunch, but...

I can't make this work! Can I add myself to it, or?

We are also thinking Scotland, because we are terrified. I know we ought to stay and fight. I know that. But... I want to be part of the EU. I don't want these things to happen in my name.

I think, broadly speaking, with this and the last election, we've learned that the polls are pretty useless- I feel like The Sun is the best guide we have, ghastlily.

My country is not my country any more and I am so afraid and so sad and I can't bear this. I hoped we were better than this. I am bereft, I think: I am so afraid. The video of people in the street (fairly) shouting TRAITOR SCUM at Boris Johnson looked like something from a previous time: we are back there now. I am so sad and so scared and there is nothing to be done and all the things people say "do this" are just not going to fix the fact that we FUCKED IT, guys, we FUCKED IT UP.

I mean, it's NOT legally binding, and it IS a poll question, so that answers that one.

I am. I just can't quite bring myself to be friends with someone who would vote for this campaign, you know? To me it is nothing but racist bullying, and it's hurting people I love, and the idea that a person could believe in it would (has) really put me off them. I'm so sorry. This is all so fucking awful.

My mother caught me putting Atonement back on the shelf one day when I was ten. I told her, "I skipped the part in the library, and also the part with the rude note." I do not think this comforted her at all.

Eh, I have five names (first, middle, middle, mum's name, dad's name) on my birth certificate, and it's never been a problem, apart from because the middle names are both nine letters it was hard sometimes to fit it all on an exam sheet.

When I was seven I took my stepfather's name too, and so have six names, but go by four (first, middle, middle, stepdad's name).

Six is too many. Five is borderline. Four is totally fine.
