I never believed for one minute that £350m a week was coming the NHS's way - I'm fairly sure the NHS can do far better with the money it already has rather than splurging it up the wall.
My reasons for voting to leave is because I don't believe in the EU project, I don't believe in working towards a single country called Europe. I do not believe the EU in its present form has the capacity to change. I do not believe the EU represents the UK from a political perspective.
However, I don't believe in a hard Brexit, I don't believe we should leave the single market, I'm happy with the four freedoms. I'm happy that we should collaborate in various institutions (e.g. EASA) and of course we need to pay our fair share of that (and if we're paying to be in it, then it shouldn't be on a Read-Only basis).
I'm not sure we should be paying to build fantastic new roads in Romania/Greece/Spain whilst they build white elephant airports and high speed rail better than we have domestically and whilst our own roads are in a state.
The EFTA/EEA option would be the option I would have ticked if it was there. It wasn't. "We voted for a departure, but not a destination". Remaining would have meant nothing changed. I've been along the same train of thought as the Flexcit approach on the EU Referendum blog (Richard North) in that respect.
But to go on about the bus... Both sides were guilty of some pretty hefty whoppers. Leave had the disadvantage of not actually being able to state what Leave would look like, because they would not have been in a position to implement it. The options were "status quo" or "something different" and 52% of people chose "something different", admittedly many of them with no idea what "something different" should look like.
