Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
There were many reasons why people lied in polls re Brexit and also Trump (who btw seems to have 3 million votes less than Clinton at the latest count... so polls were possible right there)...

But yes-

However, if you look at the results of this poll, they are so massively convincing so difficult to dismiss:

50% questionned are not prepared to be 1 penny worse off due to Brexit.

Out of those,

59% in the North,
62% of labour leave voters
46% of Tory leave voters
and even
39% of UKIP (leave!) voters

And only 1 in 10 of Brexiters are prepared to lose 100 a month for the cause.

There are going to be an awful lot of people not happy, not happy at all- as prices for essential go up, Sterling continues to drop, meaning higher prices again, and good bye to holidays abroad, job losses in many sectors, work conditions deteriorate and the NHS which was supposed to be miraculously saved by blatant lies- crashes in a winter of discontent.
They don't have a choice to be better off or worse off as a result, the poll is ridiculous.
Food prices should be lower after BREXIT, even with the plunge in the inflation is only running at 1.2%.
It's home owners for whom we will need to get the violins out for in a couple of years time , house prices will fall which must be good news as they are way too high v earnings.
