Preach!!(Original post by Rhythmical)
Because it was their only reason and a rather poorly based one. They would base on the fact that migrants are able to come here freely and they wanted Britain to be Britain again when it's far more complex than that and more other reasons to be taken account of.
I'm angry at those who voted leave without a valid reason watch

It's funny how a lot of the places that voted to remain actually had the highest number of immigrants:
(All data is 2015 figures)
Lambeth 78% REMAIN - net influx of 4,598 new immigrants (pop. 318,216)
Castle Point, Essex 72% LEAVE - net influx of 81 new immigrants (pop. 88,011)
Wandsworth 75% REMAIN - net influx of 6,295 new immigrants (pop. 312,145)
Harlepool 69% LEAVE - net influx of 113 new immigrants (pop. 92,000)
London 60% REMAIN - net influx of 133,000 (pop. 8.539m)
Manchester also voted for remain – and at 13,554 had nearly double the level of net migration seen in Birmingham, which voted leave.
Makes me wonder which campaign was really running project fear...Last edited by looseseal; 24-06-2016 at 17:05.

This sums up the leave and far right views - win so you can be smug - win so you can watch other people suffer - win so you can treat it like a 5 aside 10/11 year olds football league victory rather than acknowledge it will actually affect people's livelihoods - win so you won't have to bother worrying about other people's welfare and you can just get your own back scratched - win so you can prove just how selfish you are - selfish - sadist - lack of social conscience - childish comments like yours to prove the point - hope you drown in our 'tears'

Agreed The majority vote won, it doesn't matter who voted or why. It's called a democracy. Now please can all the remainers stop whinging and deal with it?
Both types of democracies have their upsides and downsides. Arguably, many would claim that a decision of such importance and complexity should never have been allowed to be decided by direct democracy. And considering how the lies purported by the Leave campaign are slowly unravelling, it's very easy to see how some would come to this conclusion.
