Re: Where are the Brexit fans?
No, we are NOT racist nor are we thick.
We have the ability to look at cold hard numbers. IF we were to simply replace all those imports from the EU we would not only need to make more than we export but would be massively better off.
Replacing the imports with home made goods - by, for example, not buying French passports because some stupid illiterate burke of a civil servant can't cope with understanding best value is not cheapest and DOES allow us to make decisions regarding our national security, employment and strategic requirements to override pure cheapness - would employ some of the 20% of British people currently not working (and therefore costing the British tax payer a fortune).
Those wanting to leave also notice that we are PAYING for the chance to buy from the europeans while they do NOT buy from us. This is clearly not a necessary expense. I do NOT pay an entrance fee to Tesco or Asda.
Those wanting to leave also note that we currently are 'not allowed' to decide where and what to invest in.
We also seem unable to decide on what basis we want to trade with who in the rest of the world
We face the prospect of our armed forces (the 2 or 3 people left) being subsumed into a european armed forces so we wont even be able to use them to defend the Falklands or Gibraltar
Then there is the move to have our foreign policy dictated by Brussels - so we will probably be told to 'give' Gibraltar to the Spanish and the Falklands to the Argies regardless of what the people living there actually want.
Sorry, it is time to put the stupid and deluded tag where it clearly belongs - on the remainers.
As for everything else, in our 'youth' many people voted to remain in the EEC (after Heath took us in without asking and lied to us about what it was all about). If the 'old' were the main 'leave' voters it is because we were bought up in a school system that taught us to read, write, add and subtract, one that even allowed us to think for ourselves rather than follow the pack. We are the ones who have the ability to analyse and avoid following the 'social media' postings of (I want a job when I leave Westminster) politicians and EU (I am happily on the gravy train) bureaucrats.
To the remainers on here I say if you like the eu that much sod off to the eu and dont bother coming back here again. Racist I am not, but pissed off with the spineless moaning idiots that have spent 50 years turning this country from one of the leaders of the world to a pointless owned state I certainly am.
