Well at least one of the 'leave' leaders did state this in an address, but, unfortunately, it was largely unreported in the press, as 'stopping the migrants' was much better headlines.

I would imagine it will almost certainly go that way. What else can they realistically do? Plenty of people said so, including people on BE, but the shouting about foreigners and flag waving was too loud.

Mostly a lot of shouting and flag waving until they calm down, then the rest of us have to clean up the mess because the UK looks like a small town after an attack of binge drinking by a gang of youth - rubbish and sick on the ground everywhere, and people still wearing their dirty clothes from the previous night lying around wherever they passed out.

One could hardly blame the Northern Irish and Scots for wanting to bugger off.

Luckily for us, British tourism accounts for a mere fraction of tourism revenues here, so the inevitable decline of it will only have a limited effect.

Fortunately, Germans should still have reasonably respectable disposable income, so I doubt that segment will be affected much. Besides, they don't share the same fear of foreigners, so it doesn't "scare" them to go abroad.

Although it's ironic that the scariest place around here is Magaluf.

Has Farage resigned yet? Surely he should lead the way? Presumably he has saved up enough from 17 years of EU salary and expense accounrs.

It's the real Labour voters who helped bring this about - not Corbyns coalition of elitist Guardianistas and activist thugs. Examples of the former being evident on this thread. Their superior stance and smug hypocrisy has been left wanting.

As for Cameron, he's a complete idiot. His negotiating skills were exposed by the EU as useless. Otherwise, the outcome of this referendum could have been very different.

But now that the vote is done and dusted, I hope that the 'new' Tory leadership will quickly take the tough measures necessary to bring back control for the people of England and Wales - our United Kingdom!

People keep using the term "elites" - who exactly are these people? Specifically I mean.

Brexit will lance much of the EU poison that has afflicted our main parties for decades now. I'm not banking on it but maybe, just maybe Brexit will be the catalyst for change - resetting the parties back to their core traditional values.

It also has the scope for ushering in a different kind of globalisation - one where the main beneficiaries will be hard working people and their families, instead of big business.

As predicted, the blame game begins already...

Still clinging to the falacy that labour voters voted against the EU.
They and many others were able to show their dislike of migration, all migration and to express their dislike of government policies.
Who will they blame when nothing changes in fact for those in deprived areas it gets worse.

That's the big difference.
Remain has always been about greed, a quick buck and little else.
Leave was about decent values, freedom and democracy.
The people have spoken.

Try and get over your sour grapes and calm yourself down the English way with a nice pot of tea Ami.

I'm sure you'll feel much better.

Ooh that's a tough one...

Could it be the pseudo socialists sitting behind their Guardians and Observers or Forums, making pronouncements from a safe distance, on what's best for mere ordinary folk who live in communities adversely affected by EU policies.

Often the same people who brand Brexiters as racist

Is that specific enough?

Not really, no. It's a real question - because usually "elites" means the people who actually hold power in the country, irrespective of the newspapers they read, etc. Far from being at a safe distance, they are the ones running the banks, international industry, and government.

So unless you think that these people are not going to be the ones determining both the terms of our exit and how our economy will be run (as they always have), I'm at a loss as to how improving the lives of "ordinary people" is suddenly going to be made a priority. And I'm as ordinary as they come.
