48% knew what they were voting for and voted for it. 52% voted for different things. So actually, their vote was in effect split. And even now they can't agree. Will of the people? Remain.

Our membership has changed multiple times since the first referendum, & could easily change again now. Especially as there is need for ever closer union, specifically on economic policy and security

I daresay the EU military idea would still be hot if we voted remain , as would the creation of a Finance Minister, which wouldn't really impact us as were not in the eurozone but still nonetheless would changes to our membership


If there is a need for ever closer union - why would we be better off out out of it, if it was going to benefit all EU members?

But then you could say that Remainers had three opportunities to vote against leaving the EU:

2015 - General election, Cameron promised a referendum (CON won election)
2016 - EU referendum, voters favoured leave 52% to 48% remain
2017 - General election, Conservative and Labour both have policies in manifesto stating that it was their policy to ensure the UK left the European Union. (They were the two biggest parties voted for)

MPs also had the opportunity to stop Brexit but strangely ...
They voted to trigger article 50.

People who call for a second referendum are delusional! Especially when they say “we now know what it’s going to be like” ... we don’t ask for a second chance to vote our MP in because “we know what they are like now” and we certainly shouldn’t be like Scotland and try and hold referendum after referendum until they get the “right”.

Rant over lol


I did not vote for Tory or Labour in the 2015 and 2017 GEs because of their Brexit views - fat lot of good it did with the FPTP voting system, which in my view is more undemocratic than anything around Brexit.

71% of CBI member businesses report that the UK’s membership of the EU has had an overall positive impact on their business, including 67% of SME members. Only 13% said there had been a negative impact. Overall,78% said they would vote to remain in the EU in a referendum, with 77% of SME’s taking the same position.
A CBI literature review suggests that the net benefit of EU membership to the UK could be in the region of 4-5% of GDP or £62bn-£78bn a year – roughly the economies of the North East and Northern Ireland taken together.
Access to a $16.6 trillion a year Single Market of 500m people is the key benefit

UK firms’ access to the Single Market goes beyond a standard free-trade agreement - the EU has eliminated tariff barriers and customs procedures within its borders, and has taken strides towards removing non-tariff barriers - such as different product regulations - by enforcing EU-wide competition law and coordinating product regulations.
76% of CBI members say that the ability to freely buy and sell products in the EU has had a positive impact on their business, including 74% of SMEs.
It has been estimated that UK trade with some countries in Europe could have increased by as much as 50% as a result of EU membership.
The Single Market also underpins access to European supply chains. In 2009 $207bn of the UK’s total of $293bn of exports to the rest of the EU27 was used as inputs to industries, rather than being consumed directly; and the UK imported $161bn of intermediates from the EU27 in 2009. Imported intermediates are important even to domestically-focused sectors: the health & social care sector used $19bn of imported intermediates (principally of pharmaceuticals and other chemicals).


The CBI is part funded by the EU.

I really wouldn’t pay attention to anything it says.
