A serious couple of questions for those who voted Brexit.

Are you happy with a No Deal Brexit?

Would you have voted for it if you knew that would be the [eventual] outcome?
I think the trenches have been dug & Brexiteers want to leave regardless of the consequences.

Why does it matter, you have your opinion and nobody is going to change that. If no deal is what occurs, so be it

I would rather leave with a "no deal" than a "bad deal"

It's amazing that we're going into a situation which will make us poorer, yet we cannot currently afford to stop child hunger supposedly!

So all the oldies who vote Brexit will never see the benefit of it?

Brilliant.

To be fair, I think that older people should look to the future & do what's best for their children & grandchildren. So I agree with Bristle's thought process that way, the trouble is that most younger people are open to the EU & want to remain. I can't think of many reasons why the young will eventually thank the old for taking them out of Europe. Maybe I'll be proved wrong but its looking unlikely at this rate.
