Brexit Leaver or Remainer, what it means.
What is a Leaver or Remainer?
A change in political views have taken place in the two years since the UK Referendum on leaving the European Union. The country is now almost equally divided between Leavers or Remainers. What is a Leaver or a Remainer?
A Leaver is a person that believes the UK will be better off outside the European Union. Taking back control of borders, stop sending money for EU membership, immigration and able to do trade deals with any country it chooses. The UK has been a member (EEC) since 1971 and confirmed in a 1975 Referendum. Many Leavers are middle aged or older.
Younger people and people identifying as Europeans, believe staying in the EU, amongst our closest neighbours, will ensure a more prosperous UK future. Nearly half the UK exports go to the EU. Immigration is seen as a benefit to the NHS and the country as a whole.
More details on Leavers and Remainers
These two groups could in fact be represented as political parties. No longer a Conservative, a LibDem or Labour supporter, but as a Leaver or Remainer. There seems little doubt that Brexit in one version or another will happen on 29th March 2019.
The Government will have to succeed in all the promises made to the Leavers, ensuring a better life for all. The cost so far is estimated at £26 billion Pounds.
The beliefs of both sides does not change with new information. Persuasion, debates, nothing changes the views of each side, only time will prove which side was right. By then it will be too late to rejoin the European Union.
Remainers will wait and see what happens.
If the Government fails to produce the expected results, and quality of life and opportunities fall, Leavers and Remainers will combine and hold the Government to account, probably wiping out the Conservative Party in the next General Election. The Conservative and Unionist Party must deliver the promised benefits or feel the anger of the whole population.
