I love Remainers, they are like the gift that keeps on giving.
  • The economy will collapse if we vote Leave - it didn't
  • We'll need an emergency budget - we didn't
  • The FTSE100 will crash - it didn't
  • We'll be reduced to a 3rd world state, surviving off scraps tossed aside by the EU - Nope, that fate is reserved for the bankrupt eurozone states, thanks very much
  • We'll have no Doctors and Nurses, Hotel staff, Fruit pickers, etc, etc. No problem, we can fill any shortfall from the newly redundant masses! At any rate, nobody has said anything about kicking out EU citizens whom are already here - quite the opposite in fact. Neither I suspect, in practice, will be it particularly difficult for EU citizens to come across here in Summer to do a bit of waiting on or fruit picking.
  • All future Trade with the EU will be mired in red tape and come to a grinding halt. Sure, I get the EU has to play hard ball on this one, as access to a free trade zone is the only real selling point it has. Nevertheless, it cuts both ways, so let's see how content BMW, VW, and countless other smaller EU companies are with extra barriers being placed inbetween them and access to the 5th largest global economy
I'm sure there's countless other downsides that keep remainers awake at night, like believing they wont be able to go on the annual summer holiday to Spain in future. And they say Leavers are stupid
