With all the latest info on brexit I was just wondering how many of us have changed our mind in the last few months.

All the scaremongering, good deal, bad deal, no deal, if my memory is correct I seem to think most of us voted out.

Has anyone had a change of mind? or is the consenses of opinion still out?

I voted out, would vote out tomorrow. Brexit is far more difficult than I expected, because the European union has been well and truly incorporated into our infrastructure, far more than I imagined. What is meant to be a trading relationship was gradually turning into a political union. I've no doubt it would have got worse . I hope and expect Europe and the UK to have a healthy and strong relationship in the future.

England and wales voted out as a majority, Northern Ireland and Scotland voted to stay in as a majority. 

I would just add I am surprised that a fairly slim 52/48% majority vote, is leading to a break from the EU. I'd thought they would have wanted a much clearer mandate to do it.

I would let them go there own way as well if that is what they want and see how long they last without the handouts they get.

I voted in in the 70s when it was a common market, and voted out when it was a political monster. I would still vote out. You cannot put a price on freedom. I think if we manage to extract ourselves from europe with out too much damage then that would start a mass leaving, and poossibly a new common market as leaving countrys join with us.

The fedralists in europe fear a return to a common market ( or a loss of there power and money )  and will do all they can to damage us, to prevent others following.

when one country can out vote 

the other 3 on a straight yes  no vote

something is wrong

 

I understand your point but it was an exercise for the whole of the UK, not for any particular country.

I voted out but if I was kept in because England and Wales had decided to stay in whilst Scotland and Northern Ireland wanted to leave then I'd just have to accept that that's how it is when you vote as a union. It may not seem fair but the alternatives are truly horrible to consider.  

Re the Scottish Independence, I'm half -Scottish and I'm ambivalent on the issue although my Scottish family all want to stay and cannot stand the SNP, neither can my circle of Scottish friends.

Anyway, folks,  this is a highly emotive and contentious issue - please try and keep it civil. If you can't rein it in, DON'T comment.

Rick.

By the time any potential benefits arise, most of the people who voted out won’t be around to see them.

Over half of our trade is with Europe so we either leave and stay in the single market in which case we have to follow all the rules and lose our voting power. Or we leave entirely, face lower exports, higher prices and relatively lower wages

leave or stay , i just wish they would make their minds up and get on with it . europe will not give them a good deal as dont want us leaving , so any deal will put us in a poorer position than before , so they need to decide , in or out and deal with  it , its become a complete farce and has exposed just how useless our politicians actually are

Because none of them actually expected us to leave

So it appears no-one has actualy changed their minds, the outers are still outers and the inners are still inners,

 

very strange after all the pressure put on people for a second referendum. 

To be fair with how small the mandate was and with the fact that various campaigns are now getting fined for false facts, over spending etc. We probably should do it again

Out, and not believed all the crap on the BBC which is driven by Gov to try and get people scared - they did it in Scotland and Cameroon thought he would get away with it for the Brexit vote, seems we all did not believe the hype - also some of the MP's have changed there minds they voted to stay and now are happy to leave? i hope they grow a pair and start fighting for this country
