Hi Donna. Firstly my vote was based on my personal opinions of how the EU has stuck it's nose into just about everything it can concerning the UK. I should have not used the letters UK because we have not been a United Kingdom for some time now. Remember it was Scotland that wanted to break away from the UK so I put it to you and anyone else that it was them who started this. I wonder if Scotland had not wanted to break away from us would the EU referendum even had happend? It was them who put ideas into other peoples heads.
I have not done the maths but if the EU referendum had been for England alone the out vote would have been higher , I actually think a lot higher and has anyone stopped to think about that?.
I have no clue how old you are as I have not looked at your profile but I can remember the days before the UK joined the EU and life was much better then. What right has the EU got to impose a 5% tax on every energy bill in this country? That includes yours , it is putting businesses out of business not in. It may sound crazy but why can I not buy a can of fly killer that actually kills flies? Because the EU says so because according to them it harms the bee's , I do not want to spray my bloody garden with the stuff just the occasional fly that comes through my window into my home. Last year they then started saying we cannot have powerful vacuum cleaners and then they done the same with hair dryers. Those are just a few out of thousands of silly rules they make up and who benefits? Them.
As for Boris becoming Prime Minister? Go put a bet on me getting the job because it is more likely.
What you and everyone else in this country (and world) are witnessing is a new start. Yes the political parties are falling apart and they will be put back together with better leaders giving us a better choice, they know the British people now and know what they want. The goverment and all MP's have all had the biggest smack around the head for decades , now they will wake up and listen , if that means fresh people and even some younger people that can only be a good thing.
Most of you long term members know my education ended when I was 12 years old so that makes me as thick as sh*t but I know right from wrong. I did not listen to either sides lies in the debates I made my decision on what I already knew. I made my decision on what it was like before and what it is in the EU. I made my decision on the belief that if this country stayed in the EU we would eventually be dragged down with them when they go down "when" not if because it will happen.
I may be thick as far as education goes but I look at things from all sides. My vote was not a selfish one it was for a better future for the next generation. My vote will not make me better off but look back on this in 5 years , maybe sooner and tell me I was wrong.
Again , Scotland started this lets have a referendum idea and theirs failed and now they say this one failed so they now want another one. Scotland is a lovely place but they can't have a referendum everytime things do not go their way , people will get sick of it. If they have another one which looks likely that will be a hat trick and all own goals , good luck to them.
Take care , Julia x
