It has caused so much instability, division and resentment. What a fucking mess.

No, YANBU, I would hazard a guess that all those who voted remain feel the same way. Every way we turn is a shitfest now.

Brighteyes27 Tue 18-Apr-17 22:33:13

No yanbu - I couldn't believe it when it happened it is such a complete and utter mess and by all accounts set to get worse.

I wonder how much the fact that I voted remain colours my view though? Do people really think we are a happier, more united, better country, that the referendum was good for the country.

TheFurryMenace Tue 18-Apr-17 22:37:06

OP, is that you Teresa?

Anyone who thinks the country is united is truly delusional.

It should never have happened. Selfish stupid arrogant bloody Cameron! Typical Tory out for himself, he screwed the Country.

I agree with you, I wish it had never happened. However, I guess those who voted leave are happy with the outcome, so presumably, they are pleased that they had the opportunity to exercise their choice.

I reckon we'll all be wishing that it hadn't happened in a few years though.

Get over it. It happened and there's nothing you can do. Stop bleating about it and concentrate your energies on doing something positive with your life rather then bitching and whining about something you have no control over!!

I have told dh i am staying up on the 8th of june

I went to bed the night of the referendum and the American election and look what happened

I think there is a link sad

RufusTheRenegadeReindeer Tue 18-Apr-17 22:41:38

Stop bitching and whining about other peoples posts then silly

I hope Cameron burns and rots in hell.

SuperBeagle Tue 18-Apr-17 22:45:14

The country was divided before. This has just given people a reason to voice their bitterness about whichever issue they're feeling strongly about at the moment.

sonlypuppyfat Tue 18-Apr-17 22:46:49

I am more than happy we are leaving the EU. Anyone would think we were tied to them forever and couldn't manage on our own

BumWad Tue 18-Apr-17 22:48:29

Oh get a grip.

Those who wish it hadn't happened, did you all vote remain?

I saw some analysis on the BBC a while ago saying that the public is roughly split into three pretty equal groups re Brexit. Leave, Remain, don't care. I would guess both Remain and don't care wish the referendum had never happened.

SuperBeagle Tue 18-Apr-17 22:50:04

Why would "don't care" wish it didn't happen? Presumably they didn't care enough in the run up to it, and I doubt they'd care more now.

MyCatShatInAHat Tue 18-Apr-17 22:50:46

Yanbu, Pandoras box has been opened. Yes I'm a remained.

TheFifthKey Tue 18-Apr-17 22:50:53

I find the enduring glee of leavers hard to stomach when it's clear that nobody - nobody - in government feels secure or happy about what's happening. From any party. The indecision, the evasiveness, the uncertainty- I don't think we can hold the Tories or May responsible as nobody really would probably have been able to do much more, but it's clear this is no triumph. And that's without being a doom monger. Where's the win here? I can't see it.

This times 100!

ilovesooty Tue 18-Apr-17 22:52:46

Yes I wish it hadn't happened and yes, I voted remain.

Brighteyes27 Tue 18-Apr-17 22:54:03

I voted Remain. I think many that voted to leave didn't properly understand what road they were going down and many are now regretting their decision.
Look at Scotland!! They want to have their cake and eat it.

RufusTheRenegadeReindeer Tue 18-Apr-17 22:55:38

I voted remain and wish it hadnt happened

Its a shite state of affairs

But i dont think it should be reversed...i think its too late for that

Brighteyes27 Tue 18-Apr-17 22:56:38

Rufus the reinigrade reindeer yes I agree neither Brexit nor Trump should have happened but they did. I also went to bed and woke up shell shocked and in disbelief.

fakenamefornow Tue 18-Apr-17 22:57:09

Why would "don't care" wish it didn't happen?

Because of the uncertainty and division it's created. Also the potential breakup of the union.
