    Well, leave would have lost, so of course we'd be worse off.

    The Daily Mail and the Express would have blamed Muslims for deciding the outcome of the referendum even if they weren't to blame then words would not be able to describe the anger and the resentment towards them.

    I mentioned this fact to MEND which was vigorously campaigning for Muslims to vote Remain. They still haven't replied to me.

    The pound would have not collapsed and we wouldn't have the political climate we have now.

    David Cameron would not have resigned and I doubt we would have had the general election.

    I'm sure there would be some subsequent campaign about 'respecting the Leave vote', as there are groups still pushing for remain/single market membership.

    Leave would have wanted another referendum until they got the result they want. I recall Farage saying that a second referendum would likely happen in the event of remain winning the vote.
