On June 23rd 2016 UK voters approved the EU membership referendum 51.89% - 48.11%. The referendum resulted in a vote for the EU to leave the UK. A majority of voters in the England and Wales voted to leave while a majority of voters in Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to stay. Proponents of the exit argued that EU membership undermined the UK's sovereignty and leaving would help the UK control immigration. Opponents of the exit argue that leaving the EU would damage trade, cause unemployment and harm foreign investment.
Stop 90% of foreigners from entering the uk. The people are tired of it and would also love to ban Islam at any cost. Further permitting the free parading of Islam and the laid back migration process will inevitably result in a cultural meltdown.
Yes to having our own laws recognised but NO to destroying our cordial relationships with our European cousins. Recognition for us living on an island with limited physical resources by the europeans would have gone a long way to have knocked the whole leave/stay malarky on its head. Living on the continent seems to make it impossible for them to understand the islander mentality after all they can just move/get things from/to new areas whilst we fall into the sea! (effectively we live in a cage whilst they are free---result different mindsets/different attitudes/different ways of dealing with life/different priorities)
Yes, we need to be independent and self sufficient to be more sustainable. We need to have control of our own waters and create more jobs in the agricultural and energy industry to help with self sufficiency. We need to help our people living in UK, so that means not giving monetary contributions to EU. We need to be stricter on illegal migration.
I believe elevating the EU has substantially affected our economy financially and structurally and the UK should stay united as a result as any other disbanding e.g Scotland should be forgotten for the good of our nation.
I voted remain, I do not necessarily agree with the decision. However I believe in democracy, and honouring the decision of the british people. The British people voted for brexit, therefore we need to make a success of it.
Yes, but the whole process was incredibly rushed and forced. It should have been negotiated and planned BEFORE actually leaving. A process like Brexit should take up to a decade if not more, since it’s a huge change.
