    LOL at people who are saying Remainers should stay and help, why should we? We fought for the best result for Britain in the referendum campaign, and unfortunately lost. Brexiters have ruined this country, so they can fix it. I wanted to stay in the EU, so I have no obligation to help those who want to take us out. And I think I'll be fine after getting my Economics degree from LSE or somewhere similar, I hear Frankfurt are soon to have plenty of new jobs available!
    Hey can you tell the future? Whats going to happen tomorrow do you even know that? So how can you predict an entire ****ing countrys future. Plus as i said above, if the tide does turn dont ever come to the Uk for whatever reasons. Why would you get your degree from LSE? Go leave this country now. Im not a leaver but its appalling how quickly people are abandoning their country.

    It just goes to show who really has the UK's best interests at heart, those who purport to stand up for the UK do one as soon as things get a little turbulent.. good riddance
    just cause they have different views?

    What scumbags. You agree UK is going down the drain but you arent staying here to help it? Maybe you shouldnt be allowed back here once you leave.
    I'm sorry but this is not the country I voted for. I voted for a UK to be part of the EU. I didn't get that. Why should I help those who will now have caused severe harm to those who voted stay in raw economic and social terms. With a Brexit vote, you've given the thumbs up to nationalist groups rising again. They're usually quite violent. I'll seek to go for dual citizenship which is a sane move. I have to think about my own future because 52% of the country did not care, why should the 48% care for the fate of the 52%. You didn't care about us. Sorry. It's only fair.

    things have got turbulent due to the ignorance of a brexit voters.
    i suppose people would stay if theyre made to feel optimistic and welcome - that isnt really happening either currently...
    You literally act as though the majority of this country's soul lies on the stock exchange, you completely neglect the working class concerns on the ground. Prices of stocks and currencies go up and down, the call for sovereignty and control of your country is an absolute.

    People are welcome if they satisfy the conditions just like they would be in any other developed country.

    Oh please, get over yourself. The stock exchange is an indicator of the performance of an economy. That should very much concern the working class. They're not separate things friend.

    Non remainers have been living with this for so many years. What about them? People who voted leave in the previous referendum didnt get what they want but they didnt just leave. People who voted for Labour in the election didnt just leave because they didnt get their policies. Think of what this country has done for you upto now and you are just abandoning it.

    no, i recognise the stock market is inextricabley linked to the prosperity of the economy as a whole ( not including the £6 billion on publically owned bank stocks we have jsut lost in 2 days, ) - particularly when other industries are weakening- weaker economy = less benefits and more cuts , thats a basic economic reality for you. it isnt fat cat london bankers that get screwed over in a failing economy ( they can pull out, invest and become rich elsewhere), its the ordinary ppl that are stuck here.
    it seems the only thing the average brexit voter recognised was the amount of foreign speaking people they saw on the bus

    To the Brexiters who are getting angry at the Remainers wanting to leave, what did you expect? The future of the UK is more uncertain now than ever before. We can't gamble on uncertainty. If I can start my career off abroad(I am in an international career field after all so I'll go wherever ), then I will take that opportunity. I'm doing my research now, to protect my own and my family interests. My family supported remain. I want to do good by them and use my prosperity to help them get out of this country. Maybe Brexit after a long time will end up good for England but thats not a year or even a decade away. Trade deals don't happen over night. I have family in New Zealand, my career field is in demand there and I have no debt or chains holding me down at the moment. My parents, friends and co workers all said the same thing to me and that is to grasp any opportunity, wherever in the world that be. I intend to do that, even if that means having to make the tough choice of leaving my country. I love my country but I hate what this once great nation has been turned into.

    It just goes to show how deluded you are, like the poor soul working for dirt wages at an agency is really going to feel the benefits of an economic boom... the current state of affairs is not complimentary but contradictory to working class interests.

    You imply working class people are just ignorant morons, they are far smarter than you think they're voting for a change in system which has caste them asunder for decades now.

    Seriously it just goes to show how out of touch you are if you think the theoretical performance of the economy actually reflects the real economy or the real welbeing of the working class.

    I understand where you're coming from but that doesn't mean I should feel obliged to remain forever in this country. I don't agree with the path the country is on now. The damage could be catastrophic. I don't have enough national pride in me to harm myself that much. As a young person, this country has never cared about us. The elderly always win. They always do. Be it youth unemployment or stupid university fees, many young people have been harmed by their country.

    If you actually think that the average working class person was far better on June 22nd 2016 than he was on September 2008 then you are clearly out of touch with the reality.

    The point in short im making that the theoretical performance of the economy has very little reflection on the real economy for those at the bottom. And before you blame Austerity the EU actively endorses it so it would be oxymoronic to make any contrast there.

    The price of stocks for shareholders merely means how much people with large savings are benefitting, the vaste majority of the working class haven't got **** and this has clearly been flushed out.. How can you make it about how many foreign people are on a bus when large swathes of areas from the traditional left voted for it... you are trying to caricature the problem because you are unable or unwilling to address the real problems.

    I'm not insulting the working class buddy. I'm implying that they have been lied and deceived by the Leave campaign entirely, such to the point they believe any propaganda promising a better life because they have nothing else. I can sympathise with that. I can understand the struggles of the working class and how they have been abandoned. Crashing the economy however is not in their interest, they'll be the first to lose everything. You're out of touch to assume that the working class would ascend to wealth if we got rid of the migrants and saved EU money we pay in. You're entirely wrong

    I'm not sure I agree with your logic there but I may well be wrong.

    Surely if we had narrowly voted (and I think it's fair to say it was always going to be close either way) to stay then there would have been millions of extremely upset 'nationalists'.

    Certainly UKIP would have remained a force for years to come taking votes from Labour and of course angling for the very thing many remainians are now demanding ,a second referendum.

    This would still be a very divided country and the Tories would still have their problems over Europe.

    And above all else very large numbers of people would still be coming here every year even with the new benefits rules thus making the working class poor even angrier.

    But of course all that matters to most people is getting their own way isn't it?

    So I do think it would be really good if all the people who are unhappy with the result actually did go abroad.

    For their sakes and this country's sake.

    Where did you get that from? Also it is not directly linked to prosperity. You are right about the economy being somewhat weakened but you are wrong about the stock markets. Speculators decide the price in the stock market. Brexit is a massive uncertainty and speculators dont like that. This is where they generally will sell their stocks in order to avoid massive losses. It would be linked to the prosperity in normal terms but this is an exception. Although you are somewhat right, you arent completely right

    I'd actually propose a total division of the country honestly, split into two nations, because it is abundantly clear that half of the country is completely different to the other half. This is not like being members of a different political party, this is being ideologically completely different peoples with nothing in common. That's what this referendum has resulted in

    are you somehow sugessting that working class labour traditionals are immune to xenophobic scaremongering? you are living in cuckoo land. long before the vote, loads of these 'traditional left' voted for ukip mps ad councillors. its you who is out of touch mate. resentful and igorant people of any type can be gullible enough to fall for the anti- foreigner propagnada .
    i have to go for my dinner now so im re-iterating jsut one last time - the most successful economies have a high value stock exchange which reflect asset base and profitablity of domestic based business. It also ( along with stable interest rates ) encourages investment and ultimatley the more profitable and investment, the more tax revenue the more jobs and more benefits available for the lowest classes. the method and rate at which that wealth at top falls down to the bottom is determined by governments in power - not the eu.

    Well it doesnt even matter now because nothing is going to change. Cameron has resigned and you cant just get him to be PM again. After so many changes have taken place which you cant revert, theres no way they will allow anything apart from Brexit

    Well said.

    I have always been working class-I'm an ex tube driver and whenever the stock market has fallen I've always cheered.

    Yet somehow the country has survived dozens of such dramatic falls over the years.
