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

The choice in 2016 was pretty unappealing both ways.

Leave: A leap into the unknown with a near certainty of short term economic damage.

Remain: Stay part of the sinking ship that is Europe. Accept very limited democracy.



Depends very much is one belives that Europe s a sinking ship. Currently there is only one, small and rather insignificant ship sinking- and that is the UK- either beholden and owned by Trump's USA, or up sh*t creek on WTO rules, having alienated all its close neighbours, having been shown to be totally lacking in principles and prepared to break intenrnation signed Treaties. And across water- thus totally at the mercy of those who may want to make life difficult - who happen to be those we sell most stuff too- fish and agriculture included. And cut aside from international supply chains for our few remaining, and foreign owned industries. And beholden to the foreign owners of all our main utilities, be it electriciy, gas, transport and even airports. I thought that since Raab realised the UK is an Island- most other people would have accepted this too.
