The difference is one is simply what *might* happen over time if we
stayed in the EU versus what will / could / might happen if we make
such a change to the status quo.
The point of leaving is that things *will* change.
If we don't leave, there is nothing to say that anything will change
at all (and certainly not quickly).
If we do leave there is still no way anyone can predict which things
*will* change and of those things that do, by how much.
The worrying thing is those who seemed very happy to vote leave yet
didn't have even the slightest clue what exactly they would get at the
end (which is completely different to what they  *hoped* they might

 When there is no agreement what so ever exactly what 'they' wanted
either. eg. Some may only agree that leaving the EU would be worth
doing *IF* certain criteria were met whilst other would run headlong
over the cliff irrespective, 'certain', they have a better grasp of
the whole thing than the majority of the electorate?
Of course it would, subject to your qualifying period.
Of course (as you would hope it would etc).
But the EU isn't there 'for the UK', it's there for all it's members
(something fundamental the Brexiteers simply don't seem to be able to
So, can you guarantee that the outcome of leaving *will* be better
than the outcome of not using, and if so, over what periods?
If it was such a 'good thing', why isn't everone behind it (or even
better than 1/3rd of the electorate)?
The answer (to save you trying to fabricate even more bogus pro Brexit
propaganda) is that the whole Brexit thing was a question few were
asking and even now, *no one* can even start to predict the full
What most sensible people see Brexit as us jumping out of a perfectly
good aeroplane before there is any real world indication it's going to

As seen by someone with a low EQ?
What is it the Brexiteers don't get with how 'real people' vote on
things and what the votes actually mean?
We were (are) in the EU (apparently the average persons DNA in the UK
is 60% European).
So the question (irrespective of how some took it), was actually
'hands up who wants to leave the EU'.
Those who want change, those who want out, those who are on a crusade
are 'more likely' to bother to vote than those who are not 'looking'
to change the status quo or actually want out of the EU (or CBA to
You don't normally 'vote' *for* something you don't want or (don't)
want to change.
So, (fact), only 1/3rd of the electorate voted *for* leaving the EU
and it was (morally) wholly incumbent on *them* to agree in sufficient
numbers to justify that decision. Exactly as Firage wanted of course
(if it was to go to Remain).

Ooh - ad hominem: is that really the best you can manage, says the one
accusing *me* of having a low EQ...
Fact: Everyone knew exactly what the Referendum meant, even if not the
precise path of how a BREXIT vote would be implemented.
At worst, it was "Status Quo" vs "Leave, for some definition of leave".
Everyone knew BEXITers would be out in force, so anyone who cared to
remain had the opportunity and civil duty to vote accordingly.
If they couldn't be bothered, well, that's not my fault, is it?

I don't get how anyone could really believe that staying in the EU would be status quo. If the fact that the EU now wants to raise an army doesn't give any clues, I dunno, something's really not working up there.

Don't talk rubbish, the UK wants the EU to have an army, they want them

Leaving the EU will not stop the UK being part of an EU army, we will
just have less say in how its done.
Some brexshiteers are really naive.
