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

I spoke to a British friend last night who voted to leave. His main reason was that he felt very strongly about the fact that the European Courts/ECJ continuously over ruled the British Home Office when they wanted to deport foreign terrorists/criminals from the UK saying they have a right to a family life et al - even when that person had committed serious offences like murder. So for him it’s about enabling the UK to regain control of its own laws again and to have no further legal interference from Brussels. To him that was more important than any of the benefits of staying in the EU. I also believe he knew someone who was killed in the tube bombings in London so it’s a very personal response.
