Has it now been agreed that Immigration was a factor in Brexit ? I know a few people insisted it was nt . 

Anybody who says it isn't, are away with the fairies, of course it was a major factor - maybe not for every single person of course, but it was without doubt the largest single factor, across those that voted "leave"

How’d on a min, the graph you posted doesn’t reflect this. 

Are you still under the impression that was intended to be a genuine graph representing actual data? Jesus wept.

Yes but Spider, Gonzo, Casino, the Chorley Cheesemongrel and quite a few others on here have told me that Brexit has been an unmitigated disaster. 

This made me laugh more than it should have done

 

As with all things, Brexit has been a disaster for some and not others - winners and losers.

It would be even funnier if I was from Chorley.

Give over

Not really.

Look at it this way - Farage, Gove, Johnson etc al said Brexit would be fine, and then we had hundreds of economists and academics saying we'd be going through the turbulence we have and will still continue to go through. They were dismissed as fear mongers, rather than people who had real expertise in this area.

You make it sound as if it was all a case of crystal balls and guesswork - and no one had a real insight into what would happen. Which they did.

We now know who has been proven right, as was said at the time.

Yet people still try and retrospectivley post-rationalise a completely irrational (in terms of pure benefits to the UK) decision making out it was a choice based on economic facts (understood by very few) when clearly it was driven by something far more feeling led, which was played on by certain groups. From the divisive poster Farage stood in front of, to the notorious NHS bus messaging

Personally I choose to believe those who had far more understanding of the issues, than those who were looking to make political capital from this vote, which again, was pretty clear at the time.

Facts matter. 

Indeed they do

And I can show you, for a fact-a-doodle-fucking-do, that Irish (former) customers can still buy goods cheaper from Holland than from the UK.

That wasn’t the case in 2015.

But if you know a way to change that, me and 100’s of others are all ears 👂 👂👂👂👂👂👂👂👂👂👂👂🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧
