Re: We all know what happened
"However you cannot deny that a significant portion of the country voted to Leave based purely on the Immigration issue, and the completely false premise that "we can control our own borders now" as I heard quoted on the radio this morning."
There may be an element of that, however, do the results back that up?
Given the results, I would suggest that areas of the country that haven't felt the benefits of "the economy" over the last two/three terms of government and are used to local companies making statements about the need for X or Y before closing a local factory are a little jaded by the remain campaign.
The turnout alone vs general elections suggested people cared about the result because they thought it would make a difference which begs the question why?
If this is framed purely as an immigration issue and the economic/establishment issues are ignored, then the UK is in for troubled times indeed
