The long term effects of Brexit aren't known well enough to have a protest about how bad it is for God's sake. From what I've seen, majority of the Remainers just want to keep protesting until they get the result they want.
If the experts said there wasn't a significant risk, then I wouldn't worry. I can genuinely say that.
Why is it that Brexiters are so eager to refute/ ignore expert opinion?
Doctors make prognoses all the time in regards to (un)healthy life styles/ behaviours. Do people refute them, on the basis of them being predictions? No. Because whilst there is a small chance of them being wrong, the odds are in their favour. We trust their opinion because they are experts...
... Unless you are an addict of course, and have a high level of motivation to stick your fingers in your ears and not listen to their prediction. In that sense Brexiters aren't that different.

Errrr nope, some us don't. Some of understand that the entire medical industry has long since shifted from being a service there for the benefit of humans to being just a money grabbing business funded by Big Pharma and as a result most people involved in the industry, at all levels, are indoctrinated into certain methods and strategies. These doctors for example, GPs, advisors etc are peddling the Flu Jab like it was the next iPhone. A vaccine that has been scientifically tested and proven by highly respected testing companies to be useful/effective for only 1 in every 100 people and which contains high levels of poisonous Mercury in the form of Thimerosal. The indoctrination is so thorough and complete that medical staff from GPs to nurses all truly believe this vaccine is good for old people.
