I’m sure that of the million who voted to leave the EU, many were taken in by uncomplicated sound bites such as halting immigration, breaking free from a sprawling bureaucracy and the capability of an economic independent Britain making its own way in the world. How simple it all seemed. As reality dawns upon us today, simplistic notions have been replaced. A new conscious has presented itself, full of complexities which surely must bring doubt into the minds of many who voted to leave.
Also important is whether one should respond to a question without knowing what it really means and not rely upon a simple yes or no answer. For the winners, it is a matter of job done, lets get out. In other words, should one have voted upon such a complex question by relying upon a few sound bites that sounded much like political propaganda?
