Will depend entirely on the contents of the negotiated deal. Ask again in 2 years.

3) Weak pound
4) Inflation
5) Slower econ growth
1) Nothing stops us from trading with them outside the single market.
2) I got nothing
3) It was artificially strong. A weaker pound also boost exports.
4) Again, kept artifically low afaik.
5) We have grown faster than the rest of Europe since the brexit vote.

1) tariffs
3) it can also discourage foreign investment into the UK since the low pound signals that this is not a good country to invest in. Could lead to capital flight and lower aggregate demand.
4) can you explain why you feel it is kept artificially low? Maybe some products are cheaper through subsidies, i.e. medicines, milk etc but low interest rates suggest it isn't artificially low. Either way, inflation will make people worse off.
5) It's too early to use that data since it's been less than a year since we voted to leave. We haven't actually left yet. However, it's a fact that more trade barriers will lead to slower economic growth, ceteris paribus. A hard Brexit, which is what the government has signalled it will choose, or resorting to WTO terms will lead to fewer exports, more expensive imports (especially when combined with the weak pound) and lower capital flows into the UK.

Yes
1) Uncertainty lies ahead no matter what as the euro is a weak currency, bail-outs etc
2) Make our own laws
3) Cut out bureaucratic institutions and EU politicians salaries from our taxes
4) Save billions from not paying for membership
5) EU sells more to UK than UK sells to EU
6) A majority of our companies have more business outside of the single market than inside
7) Immigration is in the hundreds of thousands and rapidly rising, we cannot fully control it right now
8) Politicians won't be able to hide behind EU laws as excuses for policies
9) Britain is regularly getting out-voted in the EU parliament and therefore it is clear that the EU has different beliefs and a different direction than the UK
10) The EU is part of globalization, something very few people support. There have been talks of an EU army etc.
11) As said earlier, the EU is very bureaucratic in nature. Granted, the EU parliament is democratic, but the Commission and the EU Council are both unelected
12) In recent times many poorer countries have joined the EU and as such the EU has become more like a charity. Developed countries are paying for less developed ones
13) Our wages can go up by leaving

5) Slower econ growth
1) So?
2) It makes majority of people more passionate for Britain where I am
3) We sell more
4) Short term, we had after 2009 financial crisis, it also lowers our debt.
5) Not by much comparing to our average.

Yes it's a good thing, and not only that I hope the eu collapses.

There's many reasons but I can't be bothered to type it.

Depends who you ask. 52% say it's good whereas the other 48% say it's not.

Quite a narrow margin but I guess that doesn't count if you ask the politicians.

I'm a UK citizen who wants to live in the EU and not in the UK, so to me it's pretty :dolphin::dolphin::dolphin::dolphin: 🤦🏾:dolphin:♂️

It depends.
Yeah we're going to be outside the single market but on the other hand we can actually negotiate free trade deals with other countries.
