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

View Post
Just out of curiosity, did any of them express regret over their Leave vote after the fact? I'm curious if the media's stories about people in the Leave camp regretting their decision actually holds merit, or if it's more drama. Did you experience this at all?
I'd be surprised if people didn't regret their decision, especially regarding a vote as important as this. If I hadn't done the reading I did in the days before I finally crossed the box, I should imagine that I would have had a few wobbles afterwards (although, if I hadn't done the reading, I'd have probably gone for Remain in the first place).

Brexit is unlikely to be pretty or painless - big transitions rarely are - but that doesn't mean it should be regrettable. I don't think the Indians or the Americans enjoyed their great national transitions very much, but you'd be hard pressed to find any who would want to return to the days of the British Empire.
