What I can't understand from the remainders camp is... having put up with 50 years of interference, of 50 years of getting over run with cheap about, of 50 years of law interference, how things were expected to improve by following the status quo.

when you say you have put up with 50 years of interference I would expect a brexiteer to be able to list a number of laws that have been so personally oppressive. no brexiteer has ever told me of one. have we really been run over with cheap "labour??" for 50 years ,have not the laws that have come into force (social, workplace, commercial,ecological, medical, travel, financial and so many more) actually enhanced our lives here in the uk? can anybody actually deny that???
no brexiteer has ever actually quantified what economic improvement would be made by brexit. its always waffle, ("quickest negotiation ever", people "queueing up to do trade deals from day one" etc etc), its all " hope for the best" , "something will turn up", nobody has ever sought to give a balanced view of what we will lose and how these losses will be outbalanced by the gains, or as you might say "how things are expected to improve by following " this daft route??

why change to make us poorer? does anybody seriously doubt that we will be poorer?, if so then where is the evidence?

The only way Brexit could get any more surreal is if Gaz suddenly turns up and tells us it’s all due to the lizard people

Why would I want to lose my EU workers rights & protection, and perhaps my job? What exactly is the end goal here? From where I stand, leaving the EU will allow for more exploitation of our workers, limit our trading opportunities, and allow investors to mop up after the inevitable crash in a similar way to the last financial crisis. There are positives in there but I cannot surely believe they will outweigh the negatives of leaving.

Many Brexiteers seem to be the types that still like to think Britannia rules the waves & we're still a super power. Time to smell the coffee and realise that you've been fooled by your wealthy superiors who are in it for self gain.

Just for the record, I don't think Brexit would be all bad had we had the right people at the helm. I'm afraid it's the blind leading the blind though!

Leaving the EU now won't stop immigration, protect our fishing, make us richer etc etc. Now this is crystal clear then people have a right to ask questions.

I note that you have stopped suggesting that there are economic benefits. this is just one of the many things which have been dropped by nearly all the brexiteers (although leadsom is so dim she still says there is one

many of the leavers (including farage, right-mugg and others) had said exactly that, there should be a second referendum if it were close

to my mind it is not democracy to lie and promise things that cannot be delivered. and when it is proven to be lies and undeliverable , to continue to claim that it is the democratic wish of the people

when those who follow fantasy and rabid faith ignore the clear evidence and yet present no evidence themselves, then i cannot see why it should be called democracy

Johnson resigns from the Government and then calls for another referendum
