I know tonnes of Leave voters. They knew perfectly well what they were voting for.  Severance from EU membership and institutions. It is some of the remain voters who are in complete shock about what this entails. Not the leave voters. I assure you, they are at ease! All knew there would disruption and some potential pain initially.





Roch I'm surrounded by Leavers and particularly across the water in Liverpool and I must admit that their sheepishness is evident among those who I know as they weren't expecting the fiasco that it's turned out to be, nor the many restrictions which could be in force.
Freedom of movement has always been the motto of this country which is why so many wish to come and live here and leaving the EU will desecrate trade to here. All this is doing is creating a division between us and Europe which is criminal as we've enjoyed years of peace with Europe and I was hoping to keep it that way.
As for the Irish border, we have a lot riding on keeping the Good Friday Agreement or else that's the end of the peace there too.
It appears that politicians are/seem intent on creating this division between countries. Why ?

Whatever happens now we don't want or need a no-deal at any cost least of all a hard border with Ireland and its peace process coming under threat.

Well, obviously that is the BASIC they were voting for but they had no idea of the shit storm it would cause and never gave a thought to the Northern Ireland problem because they didn’t know it would be an issue - hence they were not I full control of the facts!

I don't mind a second referendum in a few years but out of respect for the 2016 result you have to implement that first.

You can now have your say in the forthcoming General Election of 12 December 2019:

If you want Boris Johnson's deal you can vote Conservative.

If you want to cancel Brexit altogether you can vote Lib Dem.

If you want a new deal followed by a second referendum you can vote Labour.

If you want a no-deal Brexit you can vote for Nigel Farage.

If you want a decent NHS, welfare state etc you can vote Labour.  If you want a privatised or devalued NHS and deregulated workers rights and pay vote for Johnson.

I would break all of my fingers before voting for that lying SOS!

80,000 needed on farms for fruit and veg picking !
Granted, many Europeans will think twice because of the shocking pay and conditions but this virus will also halt production.

People will have to revert back to the 50's that if you want fresh produce from a nearby farm---get it yourself/ pick/dig your own.

Recently, I asked someone I know whether they were okay in regards to food, and they replied they'd got eggs that they wanted direct from a farm.
