Where will all this anger lead?

I have described on here quite a few times how angry and upset I often get with politics. Something in me boils up and I fly into an almighty rage. Yesterday it was particularly bad: when I watched Boris Johnson's speech, I wanted to leap through my computer screen and rip the p'tahk's head off. How dare he attempt to sound so patronising and conciliatory when his lies have done so much damage? He should spare us his waffle, sink to his knees and start begging our forgiveness.

Whenever it comes to the matter of the referendum these days, something in me just boils up and I see red. However, what worries me is that I'm far from alone in getting so angry. My rages are connected to my Cerebral Palsy: Athetoid Cerebral Palsy makes emotion harder to control, so I squeal gleefully when I'm happy and fly into an almighty tantrum when I'm pissed off. It has been particularly bad recently when it comes to politics. But what worries me is that everyone else seems to be getting just as angry, with or without CP. That is the very problem Johnson was trying to address yesterday.

He failed miserably. If anything he probably made matters even worse with his patronising tone. Remainers will not accept the result of the referendum just because some outist arsehole tells them to: Brexit flies in the face of almost everything we as educated, liberal, multicultural humanists hold dear. It is manifestly a step in the wrong direction and must be fought. That's why people are so angry about it. I used to think I should try to control how upset I get over politics, but now I see that it isn't just me. What worries me, though, is where all this rage and anger could lead.
