Disappointed that democracy failed as usual and the country wasted however much it has over nothing, but I'd apply for citizenship knowing a British passport still means I can live and work on the continent without restriction. I'm not bothering now and just holding onto my ILR.

As at least a former moderate Liberal, would it not bother you that the result would likely be a fanatic Corbyn government, probably with a majority.

Is ending Brexit worth that price for Liberals like you?
A brief history of my posts will show that I'm pro-Brexit, so be aware of that when I say that Corbyn isn't the devil.

He, at least, has been relatively consistent in his views(And is, like you, a serious Eurosceptic). He is intelligent, thoughtful and if he took over, here are the changes likely to occur:

1) Teachers and nurses and other vital public officials will no longer be on 0% increases.(More than half of all new teachers leave within 5 years of joining)
2) Education will probably be revamped.(It needs it.)
3) The social safety net will probably be expanded(Arguable as to whether for the good or bad).
4) University education will probably be lowered and debt forgiveness will be achieved(Arguable whether that's a good idea).

He has 4 years. The chances of there being the radical changes some are afraid of, that Britain will become Venezuela 2.0, is very unlikely.

Need I remind you of the damage he could do in other areas like security, Defense, foreign affairs and our general constitution.

If this were a minority I could accept your argument but a majority with a personality cult sorrounding him would be horrid in at least its symbolism if not practise.

it's like asking "if Mr Corbyn suddenly announced that the British Empire had helped millions of people to a brighter future, how would you feel ?"

I don't see how this is necessarily the case. By 2022, the next date for an election, politics might have (OK, probably will have) changed quite a bit from now.

Sure but your scenario depends on the fact that Tory Euro-skeptics will stick with them, they won’t. If May betrays Brexit, Corbyn is in number 10.

mixed.. mostly worried about the future of our country - as the fall-out from this would be one of the biggest threats to democracy that I can imagine happening in my life time

But also a little bit happier because practically, remaining makes my life a lot easier.

I suspect that Tory Eurosceptics probably still prefer her in Number 10 over Corbyn. My scenario depends on Corbyn not being able to beat May, or any other Tory, in a General Election. He didn't beat May last time, although he might beat someone like Boris or Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Liberals maybe I'm a socialist and certainty not I want what's best for the country.

If it was called off I'd be pissed off but happy at the same time in honestly.
