    So what if Brexit had not happened

    Cameron would still be in charge.

    No Ge would have been called

    Theresa May would still be a nobody

    Jezza would still be a figure to poke fun at.

    Anything else?

    we'd be influencing Europe instead of becoming a side show for them to laugh at

    companies would be moving to the UK instead of leaving

    foreign workers would come to the UK instead of leaving - look at foreign nursing applicants, down 96% year on year

      No - remember we tried that and Cameron got bullied by the EU - one of the reasons why the brexit vote was called.

      no evidence to say more companies would come - not sure any companies are actually leaving they are just moving some functions back to mainland europe....

      do we want more foreign workers - is that a good thing?

        So one of of three is good. The country is over-crowded. More nurses should be trained.

          The banks would be expanding, as Goldman Sachs and other US banks moved operations to London ( I was constantly phoned up before Brexit), companies that would have now been building factories would be building them and there would be substantially more money in coffers to hand out, and probably for now at least there would be no talk of tax rises.

          Well to do Brexit voters really shot themselves in the foot, when they voted for it, because it means austerity for the forseeable future, and most people are now fed up with that, hence the rise of left wing Labour.

          Brexit would only work in the middle of an economic boom with a "feel good factor" and a general acceptance that it is worth living on gruel for a few years. That's not how Brexit was sold.

              and who are you going to train. If you check the demographics there aren't enough young people to replace the Nurses leaving.

              I've mentioned this several times but every year 200,000 more people leave the workforce than enter it.

              If immigration is to be stopped you have to live in a shrinking economy. First of all that wouldn't stop the population rising because people "aren't dying" and secondly you would have fewer nurses, fewer Doctors and fewer refuse collectors.

                First and foremost Jo Cox MP would most likely still be alive and her children would still have a mother. Blood is on Cameron's hands. You can't escape Brexit gave hatred a platform.

                According to a written statement to Parliament by the Cabinet Office from March 2016, "the estimated cost of conducting the referendum is £142.4m".

                Could this general election be the UK's most expensive? That cost the taxpayer around £142m.

                Brexiters owe the public £284 million and that's before the process has even begun. My goodness imagine what else that money could have been spent on.

                    Brexit hasn't happened.

                    HTH


                    But assuming you mean the referendum:

                    Jo Cox would still be alive

                    The UK would not be a figure to poke fun at

                    The UK would not be the slowest growing economy in the EU
