It's much, much deeper than any "project fear" dismissal. It's actual non-compute that people don't understand that we'd be better off leaving. It's so obvious when people "get it". That's why a lot of them aren't interested in discussion about it. It's like you're asking them to consider incoherent flights of fancy. People just shut down. Besides, whatever facts and figures you bring up to say what a bad idea it is, they're not relevant to the reason why they voted leave. And/or, it's a price worth paying and you don't understand that then you just don't get it. It's a matter of opinion not fact if something is a price worth paying afterall. Then there's the icing on top that the referendum result gave it a democratic mandate and the bureaucrats won't enact it. That's very galvanising. My MiL for instance thinks that the economy shrinking by 10% is a price worth paying as things will be better in the long run. But also thinks that the government should carry on spending £745m a year so she doesn't have to buy a TV licence (even though she could easily afford one) and thinks the two things are completely independent issues. Like the economy shrinking will not bring with it very hard choices over public spending and I'm sorry, but free TV licences for old ladies with cash on the hip isn't one.
