@Lennysrabbit @Tippy The best thing I did to my life was to stop discussing the news cycle with my relatives. You should do that too.
Just live by example, don't try to convince other people to do what you think is best for them. They don't want your advice, they want their advice from the BBC and the Guardian. They don't trust you, they trust random strangers on their screens. That's their choice, not yours, and choices have consequences.
Thanks for the advice... I don't expect to change their actions, you're probably right.
But if I know I said something and shared all the info with them when I had the chance, rather than letting them skip happily off the cliffside, then if worst comes to worst I'll at least know that.
