Also, ExVulcanGC, whom has ever said, seriously, that the sun won’t rise following Brexit?
Your right no-one has actually said that but across the media there have been those whose flights have fancy against Brexit have bordered on the notion that the world will end for them, the Chicken Little effect so to speak.
To try to put that cause and effect list into perspective I wrote it to counter the alleged Project Fear disasters and put them into perspective, but to try and answer your serious question:
1. Our elected government will run our country and our economy, rather than be sucked into the upcoming economic problems the Euro is heading for apparently, not anything to do with Brexit.
2. Ability to trade with existing countries we trade with without the EU tariffs being applied and the ability to freely trade with new countries we don’t currently trade with as a member of the EU, so not restricted by them as we currently are.
3. Hopefully control the rate of immigration at a level that the country can sustain, rather than being told we have to take in what the Brussel’s management tell us to. I know that some blame our own government for that failing, but at the moment they can blame the EU, when it is their own responsibility
4. Make our own laws that are relevant to our society rather than ones from an homogenous one size fits all that the EU imposes.
5. Stay an independent country rather than becoming one large entity that is controlled from Brussel’s.
6. Have a lot more of our money to use as our government see fit rather than getting a small rebate that is spent how Brussel’s states it should be.
7. Our economy may take a dip initially, but should then rapidly improve due to a large majority of the economist who have claimed for lots of years that the EU is holding back our economy, effectively we are doing ok but not as good as we could be on our own.
8. The exchange rate is currently controlled and there are businesses that are making good while it lasts, after Brexit it is believed that the exchange rate will rise to a stable level, don’t forget there are those who claimed the exchange rate was too high before the referendum and was causing the risk of an economic downturn.
9. The farmers should gain once free of the Common Agricultural Policy which is for the benefit of the French farmers at the detriment of our own.
10. Fishing, don’t know what to believe here honestly, I have read that it will improve the UK fishing industry being free of EU control.
11. Brexit has highlighted the deficiencies in the whole of Westminster, with luck this may get addressed by leaving, accountability is with our Government not devolved to Brussel’s.
I cannot think of anything else at this moment, but do know that just as equally a few of you will counter the whole of the above with the complete opposite, as you will always believe your view is correct that it will be a clusterfcuk, but that is part of what a debate is all about.
As for the comment I made about ‘business as usual’ that was again due to reading how everything will stop the day after we leave, in fact across the media there was that view that that would happen the day after the referendum result if the country voted to leave, and that did not happen either, so business as usual does not mean to imply that the UK would be exactly the same as if it was in the EU, that would be a waste of time, it is just to become an independent nation again standing on our own two feet and in charge of our own destiny.
Of course there are going to be ups and downs, but don’t believe it will be anything like the disaster that some claim, some might find change difficult to cope with and manage as they have become too reliant on having someone else 9The EU) to make their decisions, it was ever so and Brexit, or not Brexit, will not change that. The UK economy has failed before, and badly, but at least the UK was capable and did recover to keep us in the top ten economies, and on our own could climb higher than we currently are, doubt we will fail on our own again. within the EU we are at the mercy of the EU economic controls and if they fail it takes us down with them, on our own we control our destiny
Bottom line is nothing anyone on the leave side states that will change the opinionated diatribe that is abound by those against Brexit, so that is why on the whole the leave side don't get embroiled in the arguments, I have tried again to honestly answer your question Tommy and as I have said before none will be seen as a benefit and all will be refuted by remain, so the bottom line is, we are on this course and only time will tell which side is right, I suspect that in reality it will be a bit of both but ultimately the UK will be better for it, we will never find out though if we do not leave.
