They will pay more for fuel and food like everyone else as tariffs are imposed on imports and the pound devalues.

Quite a considerable number of non-European second-generation immigrants I know voted Leave in the referendum. It seemed they resented people from their countries of origin getting a comparatively rotten deal if they wanted to come to the UK or become a citizen.

I think it was jealousy towards the Polish community that motivated them.

Black Britons have worked hard for generations to be called British and get respect, then the Polish come here and are given "equality" instantly.

What do you mean ?

Asian Brits ? Black Brits ? Chinese Brits ?

Brexit has certainly activated a racial conciousness in people that didn't exist before.

Think it will be good news better exchange rate means cheaper everything plus less competition as many fewer Europeans will come.

If you're white itll be great. Aussies and Kiwis are rather looking forward to preferential treatment.

Although more seriously its notionally meant to be quite good, especially for foreign graduates.

84% of tariffs including food and fuel will be tariff free.

The likes of Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley actually forecast Sterling to appreciate if we leave with a deal.

In general nothing much will change for you. Most of the provisions in the immigration bill for once we exit already apply to non-Eu folk. On a basic level it basically says that you need a 30k job offer.

At the time of the referendum I actually got a taxi most nights in Huddersfield and would ask the taxi drivers about it, it was surprising how most of those born here were pretty Euro-skeptic due to immigration in the main and a general dislike for Turks.

Are we talking about those already here or those who desire to come here? For those already here: pretty much the same as anybody else
Those not yet here: they won't be discriminated against in favour of the white European.
