I voted remain. Once the referendum was announced I was a certain remainer, but through the campaigns I was swayed quite a bit by leave to the point that on the morning of the vote I wasn't sure which way I was going to go.
I went remain because I thought "better the devil you know". And that really isn't me saying I told you so, or with the benefit of hindsight - I honestly felt at that time that a leave vote would create chaos at a time we could really do without it.
That said, once the result was announced I wasn't particularly upset by it. I pretty much thought "well, fuck me! It should be interesting to see how it goes!".
Was a tough call......Might heart always wanted out,but my head would say....
(despite what some people think).. We're a pretty succsessful country..why risk screwing it up.
Maybe Staying is safer.
But over the years that eroded,seeing the way the EU was going,don't see how it Benefits
anyone..we can all still trade with one another,why have limitations and controls.
What with all the emerging markets now...China,Brazil,Nigeria..etc,was worried we'd be to
tied down with some stupid Euro legislations,limiting us to what we can and can't do.
Thats not how Trade works....
Don't wanna keep banging on about it,but the border control thing was just as impotant
as Having easier more flexible trading opportunities/ full control of our laws/
legislations again etc..
Was pretty prepared for the "Chaos".. It's the way it is..Every single Country has it,
it's not just us.(will always have protesters..people wanting their own way,but eventually
democracy always wins)
But we resolve it better than the others,as indeed this will be sorted....
We won't be queuing for 3 hours for a loaf of bread,as some would have you believe..
