Stop media referring to Leavers as Brexiteers

This petition had 6 supporters


Media organisations like the BBC, Channel 4 and ITV are supposed to report the news impartially. However, their overwhelming use of the term 'Brexiteer' to describe someone who supports the UK leaving the EU biases the debate emotionally in favour of the Leave campaigners. It does this because the term has the positive, dashing and romantic associations of 'buccaneer', 'musketeer' or 'privateer'. Please sign this petition to get these organisations to use a term like 'Brexitist' or just 'Leaver'. Thank you
