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

It is actually very simple, if BREXITEERs cared about their country they have a plan of what happens the day after and their voters would demand it. The fact that people vote for a party, who instead of actually taking responsibility for delivering BREXIT instead demands that others should deliver it for them or else they might run in the next GE, says it all. The BREXIT party policy - get someone else to do it because we don’t know who and don’t want the responsibility.
Brexiteers care about the UK just as much as you, they just have a different vision of what that means.

Hardly anybody votes against their own personal interests. Just to make an example, if Remain meant that all British and Irish citizens (including multinationals) have to leave Switzerland whithin one year, with no possibility of naturalising beforehand, would you still argue for and vote Remain?

Your reproach is well placed as long as you target the Brexit figureheads, most notably BoJo and Farage, and it's fair to expect them to lead the negotiations and the implementation, or at least oversee it. That's why I call Farage and BoJo cowards.
