    Hi guys,

    This may have been done before, and to be honest I can’t be bothered to check. I was just wondering whether what percentage of you voted Brexit and what percentage didn’t?

    I read all this stuff about what type of person voted out and what type voted in but the people I meet on in the trades all voted out. So is it a trade based opinion?

    Thoughts would be welcome.

    Out but would vote in given a second vote. Major misleading by the press and genuinely feel that sitting as we do outside the euro we already had a pretty good deal. Concerns over immigration etc could have been addressed under EU rules anyway its just that our government wasn't prepared to resource border control. ****ed off big time with the lying bunch of sh*sters that we have voted into Westminster at present. World has gone mad! Also result was likely precipitated by several years of austerity caused by those honest, ethical law abiding bankers!

    Out- like the majority of the British working class, purely for immigration purposes as well.

    Won’t make any difference as government doesn’t control / resource immigration anyway. My builder has a Romanian lad working with him who works his socks off. Can’t get any local youngsters to get out of bed in the morning.

    Not a spark, but fwiw, I didn't vote as I was abroad at the time. I would have voted "in", and my wife would have voted out", so we cancelled each other out. I just didn't believe all the "projections" of the money we would save and use for the NHS...frankly, no-one knew what would be the result, but all parties proclaimed that they knew what would be the financial outcome, but none of them did. Selfishly, I wanted to retain the right to be accepted as a citizen of any EU country and be eligible for health care etc. and having the right to travel, work and live in any EU country. I would vote "in" again, but agree we were fortunate to be outwith the Euro. However, I will never be happy until Fred the Shred and some of his cronies go to jail.

    London is owned by the Russians. Rees-Mogg, Johnson and Farage are all in the pockets of the Russians including that **** over the Atlantic. Be careful what you wish for as the evidence is growing. Best thing I ever did was delete the Daily Mail app.

    Out- Reasons being Immigration but major factor for me was being run by a European parliament.

    I would like to bring manufacturing and trade back to the UK for our future generations, if that makes us worse off for the next 20 years then so be it.

    That being said I wasn't a fan of either remain and leave campains.

    I voted out.
    I was NOT influenced by all the Hype, in fact I'd done a postal vote before it all kicked off.

    For me it is all about sovereignty and secession. I am deeply troubled the reigning monarch reneging on her coronation vows and seceding power to other nations. Also to be a defender of the faith and utterly failing in that aspect as well. That is constitutionally very wrong. I also would contend that successive prime ministers have acted in a way that would be legally traitorous in that they have colluded to also secede power to other nations. Originally this was touted as a common market and as that, made sense. So a vote was taken and we went in. What it ultimately became is an unelected plutocracy acting tyrannously and disregarding the sovereingnty of the people. In my view we have been massively betrayed in a constitutional manner. Although Brexit may be a bad idea the european union is an even worse idea. I did not vote never have and never will.
