The channel 4 interviews where people couldn't articulate why, and talked only about 'immigration' made my blood boil, but last night's post about someone not wanting her children to be forced to join a 'EU Army' that exists only in her imagination made me weep

yep some very uncomfortable interviews with Brexit voters on Sky and BBC.

There is an awful problem at the moment with the idea that all views on all subjects are equal, so your considered opinion after rigorous research is only as valid as what I reckon having viewed am Internet meme on Facebook,

Yanbu. Fine fair enough, Leave won but some of the reasons have been disgusting.

I work in an inner city school and there were staff members saying how great the Leave victory was "because all the the immigrants can just go". I could not formulate a response to that comment.

Because Brussels is in Germany is my favourite so far.

I did like the person who thought that now countries like, er, Norway would follow our example and leave as well.

We have cut off our nose to spite our face. They sadly believed a pack of lies.

I saw a interview where the man was glad to get rid of immigrants - but only the ones from Syria and Africa etc. He was ok with Europeans moving to the UK as they should have free movenent. confused

I think he didn't quite understand what he was voting for.
