We lashed out upsetting the apple cart and gave the government a bloody nose and like many got joy at watching David Cameron lose his job.
Some say, we lashed out but it’s gone too far. You can’t blame the EU for everything. Our government are to blame for a lot of this.
When asked about sovereignty, no one really cared. Both Leavers and Remainer friends were not that bothered. I did find one comment funny though: “It is a good excuse if you feel embarrassed to say the word ‘immigration’.” The fear of being seen as racist, I guess.
The tide is turning in my area. It may be due to a lot of us who are prepared to talk to each other without any ill feeling. No comments like: “You were conned”, “You were lied to”, “You fool”, “You scum are wrong”...
Many knew what they were doing when they voted Leave. There were many different reasons and complex ones. The EU referendum was used to vent some of them, which were encouraged by some rich self-interested nationalists.
“I hold my nose to vote for any party that cancels this mess.”
“Farage, yesterday’s man, is a Russian puppet.”
“People at the top of Leave care only about themselves.”
“No one ever explained the simple stuff the EU does for us.”
“The price of everyday things is getting dear.”
“Going on a holiday abroad has become expensive.”
“I fear for my children.”
“Both sides lied.”
