Genuinely interested - what on earth do people mean by this?

I have seen a lot of leave voters on the news being asked their opinion and reasoning for voting leave and lots of them give this answer.

Fewer visible brown people. (not me, but that's what most people mean, I reckon!)

lljkk sums it up.

I'm also trying to find out exactly when the "Good Old Days" were but I'm having no luck pinning down a decade...

That it was I feared. I'm so disappointed.

My reply to that phrase has been "it was always mine."

People clearly want to go back to the days of "no blacks, no dogs, no Irish" sad

If that what it looks like, you can fucking well keep it.

Some people mean that in a horrible racist way, some mean 'no more Eurocrats', which split pretty much renders it an unusable phrase.

But what do they mean by country - England?

Then as a Scot in England i'm not welcome.

So if I feel unwelcome how must others feel ? Especially this who go back generations, it's their home & all they'be ever know? But they happy to have a different colour skin or ethinicity.

Or do they mean the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland? They'be effectively broken that up so they'll never have their country bacK.

I'm actually tempted to start a petition to drop the 'Great' as we'll never be Great again.
