Very quick post I wanted to share that’s too long for Twitter.
I’ve just been told to “stop whinging, Brexit means Brexit and you lost” by 2 leavers on the Guardian and Facebook recently. Its OK, I was a little upset but I’m fine now. So when I asked the first what Brexit meant exactly they replied:
Brexit means exactly what it says !
Leaving the EU completely, so no Norway or any other model. But a new British model, which means we will just sign a Free trade agreement with the EU as its in both our interests to do so. That means free trade but no to membership and free movement , this is the same deal that many other countries around the world have with the EU including Mexico.
A few minutes later however, when I posted video below of Dan Hannan MEP on Facebook, and said that it described a Norway model with free movement, harmonization of regulations, access to the single market and contributions to the EU budget, the 2nd Brexit voter replied:
I wasn’t conned. Its actually exactly what I want as a brexit voter. Please, just give up, we are leaving the EU no matter no matter how hard you throw your toys out of the pram…
So, just so we remainers understand this:
Brexit is/is not the Norway model, includes/excludes free movement, includes/excludes an EU financial contribution and does/does not require regulation harmonization.
Trade will be carried out via the Single Market/a new as yet undefined comprehensive trade agreement which includes/may include/will not include financial passporting.
Remainers need to stop whinging and accept this/put their heads in their hands in despair and one thing we can definitely confirm is that Leave voters are/most definitely are not fully informed about the choice they made on June 23rd.
I hope that clears things up.
