I voted remain, and I am disgusted by the behaviour of other remain voters. What I find even more unbearable than the bashing of leave voters, is the complaining by the neoliberals about how we were ****ed over by uneducated racists and by over 65s who won't be alive to see the consequences blah blah blah. Wtf do you think we should've done instead? Limited the referendum to those under the age of 26 with a university degree who vote Labour? And surprise surprise - they've only gone a started a petition for another referendum because they didn't get the result they wanted. Remember guys, democracy is only good if it goes the way you want it to. If not, protest and throw all your toys out the pram. The exact same thing happened at last year's general election. It's pathetic. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

Please explain precisely how immigration has directly negatively affected you? Immigration is good for the economy, the problems that people blame on immigration (pressure on housing, education, jobs, etc) are caused by the policies of the incumbent government, not immigration itself.
The argument against the EU is nonsensical. If we want to trade with the EU we have to abide by the same regulations made by the "oligarchy in Brussels", we now just can't influence those regulations.
Oh, and Obama himself said a trade deal with America would not be a priority (and rightly so from an American perspective) so that's not likely to happen any time soon.
The trading arrangements with the EU remain to be seen, and they could become very preferable if other countries like France follow us out of the EU. Indeed that's a big if, but at the end of the day the EU will only be able to withstand a certain amount of mutiny from the big players like the UK, Germany, France etc.
Obama said this today:
'The people of the United Kingdom have spoken, and we respect their decision,” Mr. Obama said. “The United Kingdom and the European Union will remain indispensable partners of the United States even as they begin negotiating their ongoing relationship to ensure continued stability, security, and prosperity for Europe, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the world.'
As 'indispensable partners of the United States', I think you're wrong to assert that arranging trade deals with the UK isn't a priority for the US.Last edited by Everglow; 24-06-2016 at 21:59.
