I'm feeling pretty shocked and scared right now.

Why did you vote for brexit?

Ok that has not helped

Seriously shariamom.

I predict the majority to have voted due to 'immigrants taking our hobs' blah blah blah

braceybracegirl Fri 24-Jun-16 05:18:58

i think that's the answer then. Racism. sad i am currently altermating between crying and wanting to be sick.

MurphysChild Fri 24-Jun-16 05:19:55

I agree with you idontknow

SellFridges Fri 24-Jun-16 05:20:58

I'd like to know too. I feel as thought I, and all my friends, are missing something.

What will be better when we leave than it is currently?

That's nice and measured ShariaMom. Although probably representative of many.

LyndaNotLinda Fri 24-Jun-16 05:21:06

Well at least Sharia is being honest that she's v

I was a remainer. But the people who I know who voted brexit, did so because they want to be in the EU. They feel they don't like us and don't want us.

They don't feel the EU can be trusted.

They also dug their heels in when leave campaigners started the rhetoric that brexiters were racist etc.

This happened in the last election. Labour and their voters really alienated a lot of people. I think the remain side have done the same again. A lot of people were undecided and the nasty comments from so many remainers pushed the undecided away.

Although I did chuckle at the "immigrants taking our hobs". Do they take any kitchen appliance?

Say good bye to the NHS, say goodbye to equal working rights.

Can't believe we've done this sad

Pooka Fri 24-Jun-16 05:22:13

Oh... So racism. Well that makes sense. hmm

AliceScarlett Fri 24-Jun-16 05:22:14

Well at least Sharia is being honest that she's v....racist?

LyndaNotLinda Fri 24-Jun-16 05:22:14

... Voted to leave because she's racist. So many leavers are pretending they're not

drivinmecrazy Fri 24-Jun-16 05:22:24

Well you certainly have your borders back an another thrown in for good measure. Hadrons wall will be rebuilt as Scotland chosen being part of the EU over being part of a United Kingdom!

DoubleCarrick Fri 24-Jun-16 05:22:25

Because obviously at midday today they are going to round up all the "foreigners" and put them on a boat "back home" hmm

fastdaytears Fri 24-Jun-16 05:22:33

Wow I really wanted this thread to cheer me up. It hasn't.

Statistically, people have voted out because they're older with no higher education qualifications. But no graphs I'm looking at have actually made me understand why.

Pooka Fri 24-Jun-16 05:23:15

Arf at hobs!

LyndaNotLinda Fri 24-Jun-16 05:23:18

Sorry for leaving that post hanging - cat knocked my hand!

Peachesandcream15 Fri 24-Jun-16 05:23:40

I think the clue is in Shariamom's name....

AliceScarlett Fri 24-Jun-16 05:24:00

Why goodbye to the NHS? Argh. I was not prepared for this.

MUjunkie Fri 24-Jun-16 05:24:17

People have their own reasons for choosing whether to stay or go. I don't know why racism comes in to it! A difference of opinion doesn't mean someone's stupid or racist ffs!

GahBuggerit Fri 24-Jun-16 05:24:52

in or out we were probably fucked, i voted out because immigration is a massive issue, my leave vote was my chance to be heard on it.

AliceScarlett Fri 24-Jun-16 05:25:40

Wow.

Regardless of the implications of her username... Wow.
