You are absolutely right, my vote for Brexit was a gamble. I like risks. I personally don’t regard the risk as unnecessary as I don’t live my life “better the devil I know”. So far, my approach has worked okay for me and my family. Playing safe might suit a lot of remain (not a direct accusation at you personally - please believe it), but I can see the UK prospering outside of the EU. I wasn’t lied to, as I voted without listening to Farage, Johnson et al. I couldn’t care a less what they told me.
That is my personal view, built on gut feel. Yep, cheap I know. The Brits are a resilient bunch and life will go on. It really will. The world painted by some, is that the sky will fall in on 1st April. We’ll still need to buy cars, buy food, buy medicine, spend money, entertain ourselves. Tourists will still flock here to see the sites.
Might be rough for the first 12/24 months, but medium/long term I can see us prospering at a faster rate than our EU friends. Again, my own personal opinion built on nothing but optimism. So don’t ask me to show you my workings. Which might be blind. But I can live with that.
I realise you’ll be appalled by all this, but so be it. There is so much snobbery that goes on with Remain campaigners on these boards. And remainers not half like to think of themselves as intellectually superior and I’ve no idea where this comes from, or why they think that.
But you see these stats trotted out that most University educated people voted to Remain. Well, so what? Means nothing to me whatsoever.
It might fall flat on my face, but the status quo didn’t exactly have me walking to work on gold paved EU streets.
All that aside, at what point do ardent remainers accept the vote and move on for the benefit of the nation?
There must come a point where they’ll say to themselves, “okay this isn’t what I voted for/want…but life goes on”
