    Incorrect; the middle class and graduates do suffer somewhat, but the workers suffer the most. The rich can simply upsticks and move their businesses and corporations elsewhere.

    The middle class and graduates can't replace their jobs from those businesses in a protectionist post Brexit economic climate.

    Thus this leads the middle class and graduates to apply overqualified for lower jobs which means the working class will go unemployed and won't be able to get any jobs due to too much competition.

    To answer the OP, the rich want to block Brexit because they can see the economic dangers the most and how the country will deteriorate under protectionism.

    No, the workers have the least to lose from leaving the EU, unemployment is still at just under 5% and many of their jobs will not be affected by Brexit. The upper and middle classes fear leaving the EU will put better paid jobs at risk as outside investment will fall. Their lives will deteriorate under protectionism but it will remain the same for the working class.

    I assume you quoted the unemployment figure as evidence that "Brexit isn't bad".

    Need I remind you that protectionist tariffs don't actually take effect until the leaving process is completed, assuming a new free trade deal isn't negotiated (which looks likely from Mrs May'a rhetoric), meaning the effects won't become evident until approx march 2019.

    What about inflation (another factor to consider)? That would damage the lives of the working class the most if the pound continues to plummet at its current rate.

    Well yeah because countries outside the EU are generally further away than ones within it so it costs more to transport. Makes sense.
    The businesspeople who support remain certainly outweigh the ones who support leave.
    Dyson do all production in Asia so it doesn't really affect them so much anyway, probably would affect their competitors more.
    lmao economics fail no they have to pay taxes levied by the EU
