    "we'll be economically worse off leaving"
    apart from the fact that is only an opinion and only time will tell, many people voted to leave based on other issues, and most obviously on immigration and the potential for restrictions on their lifestyle. So economics didn't figure in their choice.

    2.

    How much does Britain really pay into the EU budget? | The UK and Europe | Debates | E!Sharp



    £280mln per week (after rebates) is a colossal waste of money.

    3. Freedom of movement is wrong. All countries should be able to turn away people that do not meet immigration criteria (health, skills, education, criminality, references). We do this for non-EU people it is only fair we apply the same rules to everybody.

    Brexiteers just keep grimly hanging on to a perverted moment in time. It's long gone and we've moved on.
    I mean the same could be said of any decision.

    Maybe we should have another GE with just 2 choices a leave party and a remain party.

    Winner takes all..

    It's like a second referendum with a different name.
