    We pay them a considerable sum to do it.

    I can't speak for my age group, but immigration had zero influence on my voting choice. I've seen a similar trend on FB and I don't understand why the Remain crowd automatically assume that Leave votes were about immigration?!

    Undoubtedly some were, but not all.

    I don't know, without the EU to handhold and tell us how to do it, it must be impossible right and we should start boarding up our windows?

    Immigration is not the main reason people voted leave you know..

    All the remainers just can't understand things not going their way, and the frustration theyre feeling now is completely new to them. This is because the country has been decided for them and towards their values for so long, but they aren't the only people in the country and lots of people out there have been angry at the direction of the country for a really long time and they used this as an opportunity to say so.

    So the remainers are thinking 'wtf just happened' because they were clueless that people different to them even existed or they pretended they were just hateful xenophobic hateful people like Nigel and the answer to them is just organise a few anti-racism protests and call them racist.

    Wait, doesn't that show that the GDP had annual growth every year whilst in the EU, apart from a handful of years, with the big dip in 2009 being the global crash? Or am I reading it wrong.

    My sister voted Leave. This morning she said (while apologising): "... but I didn't think they would actually win!!"


    She's been watching BBC News non-stop since she woke up. Buyer's remorse.

    I like the comments from this tweet: https://twitter.com/louisa_compton/status/746279848180592640

    They just need us to buy their goods, but they do not need to buy our goods.

    No they were moaning that the costs had been put up even though the pound recovered quite quickly this morning, and no other UK component store was putting up prices.

    so you think the French authorities will actually try and stop them from coming to the UK now ?

    I wouldn't be suprised if in some dark corridor of the EU building that someone hasn't already sent out some instructions to the French border guards to start taking "extended lunch breaks" .

    parts of Kent are going to look like a frigging war zone over the next 18 months

    Anti-Labour feeling is deeper than any 'London based Leader'. It is due to their remote control from Westminster. As one of their previous leaders said 'I am only a Branch manager'. The new Leader has said that nothing will change.

    I think it is people like you who are clueless what this means.

    Every economic forecast saying this is bad. It is like a cardiovascular surgeon tells you smoking is bad for you and you do it anyway. Then you run the risk of cancer or a life of looking cool like Steve McQueen.

    What's more likely to happen? Getting cancer or looking like the cooler King?
