Eeee Cor Blimey:I do find it strange it's the people who don't even live in the UK (or Europe for that matter) that in this thread seem to be saying it's a disaster and that we're all too thick/naive to be allowed that choice...
Can i just say people voted not just about money - it's not all about money. Many were sick of the EU making rules, such as the lightbulbs, vacs, with hair dryers next! Would you in the states like another body tell you you could no longer make or sell a vacuum cleaner that is any more powerful than 1600 watts with a 900 watts rule to come next year?! https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/aug/21/anger-as-eu-bans-most-powerful-vacuum-cleaners Most people were 2100 btw..
Anyway, little things like that have piled up, many feel so pissed off with the EU setting up rules and laws for the UK, rather than allow our own leaders to do so.
Not saying what i voted for, just cos i did this post doesn't mean i was out, nor in, but just wanted to point out it's not all about the pound. The pound will come back up again in time.
This happens in the U.S. all the time. Especially laws about stricter environmental standards, plumbing standards, Air conditioning standards, more efficient lightbulbs, appliances, you name it. Most of it starts in California, and eventually the rest of the U.S. will follow. It's been happening here for years. That's what the EU is all about. Being a union, not separate. I think it's too bad the vote was to separate, and will not be good for Britain in the long run.
