Some of the protestors down there are really not nice. I have to say, from experience, the nastiest and most vile tend to be Leave protestors, who shout some really foul, unacceptable things at others. Some of them, I suspect, are Robinson-esque figures who exploit the Leave message as a smokescreen to cause disruption and general upset about other things.
Some of the Remainers don’t paint themselves in glory either, though generally tend to be more generic protestors and less deeply personal - and in the interest of fairness, there are also often large numbers of Leavers who are respectful, polite and just there to have their voice heard.
I think broadly, neither are a fair reflection on their respective movements, and they’re not achieving anything other than creating a toxic environment.
