The problem is that everything has been sold to foreign investors. There's virtually nothing left.
I had no idea that China and India were in the EU.
@majorincident hi, like you I didn’t realise they were EU I thought they were Asia. I voted to leave and I stand by it, if we’re made to stay in now you can imagine what our lives would be. A satellite of Europe with no say in matters involving us, is that why our forebears fought in 2 world wars for? I don’t think so! That’s my opinion for what it’s worth.😳
Well after reading this whole thread, I still think stay is the best option, at least we will get votes on new laws etc, if we left with a deal wouldn't get a vote, would just have to abide by whatever law they passed. If we leave without a deal I still feel this is a very bad idea, it's obvious to me it'll effect our economy in different ways ie the pound value falling, Companies leaving loss of jobs, less money to spend etc all effect our economy, world trade federation rules are worse than EU trade ones and cost more as more tax etc to pay, further to import costs more also.
As for the refrendum results I'm with @k89bpa on that one, I would go one further and say another vote on that paper should be stay, leave without a deal, leave with mays deal, then everyone should be made to vote, make it an online and telephone vote as well as a ballot, the telephone one can be automated press 1 for stay 2 leave, 3 deal etc, that way no one has an excuse not too vote.,id even say fines should be given if people who are eligible to vote don't without a good reason ie dying, or not of sound mind are obviously good reasons why people wouldn't be able, but can't assed to get up and do it isn't one, our countries future is far to important for laziness in my opinion so fines if £50 or more may get people to vote, after all a lot who don't vote moan about outcomes how can you moan if you don't vote.
I can't understand this ridiculous obsession by some Remainers that they must include people who didn't vote, in the statistics as 'not voting to leave'. People who didn't vote, DON'T COUNT. The assumption is they didn't care either way, and as far as I'm concerned, if they couldn't be bothered to get off their backsides and put a cross on a bit of paper, then they are persona non grata. After all, if forced to vote, who says they might not have all voted to Leave.
Please stop including non voters in statistics. As far as the vote results goes, they don't even exist.
