    Since you made that claim, if you can please demonstrate it - with the limitations to your possible knowledge I mentioned accounted for. I doubt you can.

    No, you're just asserting that your personal intrinsic value is actually extrinsic (whatever that may mean) while discarding everyone else's value as intrinsic and thus for some reason irrelevant.

    Footnotes and main text are equally binding. Stating specifications in the footnotes is completely sufficient and precisely what they are meant for.

    In contrast to "remoaners" the "brexiteer" thing does not contain an insulting wordplay, as far as I can see. For what it matters it reminds me of musqueteers, grenadiers, etc. if anything.
