The problem was that it appears there are millions of people who aren’t “doing very well” under the current system. They’ve , in their eyes, got nothing to lose by voting to change things. They don’t really care what changes , but it might be better and can’t be worse, in their minds.
There are those that voted “to get their country back” and they aren’t bothered about what they lose ( or gain ) to “get control back”.
There are those that voted “to get rid of Asians!” - they are mental.
There are those that genuinely believe that a trade deal with India is better than gifting India money in aid or setting up trade deals with the Middle East (such as buying Oranges from Jordan or, in the case of my friend, selling Blackpool Rock to Israel) would be of benefit.
Buying stuff from Arab nations might be better than bombing them.
A lot of people couldn’t care less if it’s worse or better, they just wanted change.
I voted Remain but I’ve been trying to see positives as we are leaving, so pointless going on about “what if we had stayed” - we aren’t staying we are leaving.
