This is a call out to those who voted for Brexit, or those who know people who did and have answers to some questions I have for Brexiteers, to better understand what people see as the direct benefit - to them - of leaving the EU. Indeed, remainers who can see any benefits of leaving the EU welcome to comment too.
I am a remainer. Most or all members of this organisation are remainers too, and proud EU citizens. But I do not think everything about the EU is perfect - just as I, and likely leave supporters too, don't think everything about Westminster is perfect, yet it doesn't detract from our being proud Brits.
With about half the voting population indicating a desire to leave the UK, if we are going to live in a divided nation, let's make it a tad easier by trying to understand where the other side comes from. To date I have not been able to get answers to questions that would enable me to do just that, so here's an attempt at understanding why people have voted leave. No snide comments please.
1. What do you see as a benefit to you personally from leaving the EU?
Instant house price drops? Better job opportunities? Weaker currency making overseas holidays cheaper? Something else?
2. What is it about the EEA regulations that you don't like, and would change?
Is it their telling us what measurement we can sell things in? Shape of our bananas? Fishing restrictions?
3. What do you see as the downside of leaving the EU - but that you think is a price worth paying for leaving?
EU has strict regulations on compensation airlines must pay for delays. Free movement - the ability to live anywhere in the EU, as long as you do it to work or are self-sufficient.
4. Anything else you want to say.
