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

View Post
That's the crux of the matter for me. A leave vote would inevitably strip rights from myself, my family and my friends. Even if I wasn't affected personally, in all good conscience, I still couldn't have voted leave. They could rerun the referendum a thousand times over, and my vote would never change.
I also voted in good conscience, regardless of the fact that a loss of rights would be inevitable - including even a possible future expulsion from Switzerland.

The continual characterisation of Leave voters as cynical or selfish is unhelpful and counterproductive. We all had our reasons for voting as we did, and nobody's reasons were any more or less valid than anyone else's.

That's how democracy works.
