Ask them if they would be prepared to lose their jobs and that of their family members.
4 in 10 is not a MAJORITY, so their views do not count.

But this is old news.

I take you have liitle contacf with those who are actually in business.
Apart from your local newsagent, that very nice Asian man.
Usual brexit nonesense..
All those EU regs relating to Olive farms and citrus growing must be a real bugger for Uk manufacturers.
Along with health and safety, consumer protection, etc.

A View from Germany...


"One of Germany’s most prominent businessmen has said Brexit will be more painful for the rest of Europe than for Britain, and a UK outside of the EU might prove “highly attractive” to foreign investors — in a sharp break with the German consensus on Britain’s post-EU future.
Mathias Döpfner, chief executive of Axel Springer, one of Europe’s largest media companies, said Britain was bound to experience short-term uncertainty as a consequence of its June 23 vote to quit the EU, “but in three to five years from now, my bet would be that Britain will be better off than continental Europe”.
Mr Döpfner said he saw Britain moving towards a “more free market-oriented model, while Europe is step by step transforming into a transfer union” — with funds being channelled from successful states to the struggling ones. “And that can put a lot of investors off.”
“If Britain can create an alternative here, I think that is highly attractive,” he said, in an interview at Axel Springer’s headquarters."

Can you find a quote from a business man who actuall produces something.
Keep up your anti German rhetoric Dick and those who think like you might find that Thyssen Krupp walks away from the deal to buy Tata steel.

Thanks, an interesting opinion about what the EU is increasingly being seen to be becoming: Embarking on reactive "firefighting" rather than proactive growing of the EU economies. The same with so much of what the EU is doing these days, they're running around like headless chickens without a coherant plan just some fuzzy notion that more EU is the answer.

It is not Brexit nonsense. Cameron, the bloke you voted for, said it.

It couldn't have been that secure if he's lost his job before article 50 has even been triggered - after which there will still be two years before exit actually happens.

Is that the limit of your response.
During the months before the campaign had numerous discussions with owners of their own business, some milti million pound turnover companies.
Not all were enthusisastic about remaining but not one regarded the regulations under which they trade, their legal responsibilities to employees and customers as a major complications.

Thats the real world not politics.
In the new world of brexit little if anything will change.
Consumer protection, health and safety and a multitude of other regs will stay on the books.
The UK government will continue to add new ones.
