    The irony that most of the 1% would want us to stay in the UK, yet those Europhiles who marched in days after the Referendum are all Communists who are anti-1%.

    Certain rich people were/are on the Bremain side since it would be bad for their business and because from an economic standpoint, every single source I have read says Brexit will have a negative effect on the UK.

    Financial security?

    Don't get me wrong, though, I'm so glad we've left.

    Wealth and economic stability kind of go hand in hand.

    Many people want to block Brexit, not just the wealthy.

    Many rich people appreciate the fact that unlimited cheap labour with access to the UK helps to drive down wages in the UK and thus, helps to make them richer.

    Simple.

    Well trade is cheaper between EU countries. Of course the majority of businesses don't want brexit. Because it's illogical.

    If taxes weren't so high and progressive maybe they'd pay it. I don't blame them for avoiding it !
    Leaving the EU doesn't mean they won't be able to dodge tax, lmfao.
    48% of the population dodge tax? I don't think so.
    I would've leave but come on! There are better arguments against remoaners

    The tax rate is lower than France, Sweden and Norway. How comes Norway is far richer than the UK.

    incorrect it makes trade more expensive with countries outside the eu also businesses like JCB and Dyson both support it

    Because Brexit is pro-capitalism which means, if everyone is rich then the markets will change to accommodate for this. They need communism in order to create a demand as well as a short supply. We all deserve a chance

    Norway has a lot higher oil and is not a sustainable model. Both Norway and Sweden tax less progressively than the UK( share of income earned compared to share of taxes paid). Norways ratio is 0.95 and Sweden's is 1.00 whereas the UK's is 1.20
    Sweden and Norway both successfully used austerity in the 90's. France has 10% unemployment and is in stagnation. France is just a shambles and socialism has failed there big time!
