Just one 'rule'. Whichever way you voted, you have to see the positives from the other side of the argument.

Okay, so I voted Remain. However, I think if the process can get more permanent UK citizens into work, then more money stays within the country which can only be a good thing; and of course reduce the social support payments those people.

I also voted remain

We can have a more globalist trade policy with countries like China/ India than are on the up as opposed to focusing on Europe which is stagnant at best

Umm....so Iím not allowed to factually destroy anyone elseís upbeat opinion?

The only positive thing is that I canít stand those arrogant pricks in Brussels. I hope the whole ~#*$ thing collapses. Is that positive enough?

Ok, as a Leaver I'm trying... so..... hard..... to think of something positive....about remaining in the EU....

But I can't.

I just, really, can't.

Sorry.

Ok, I can!

Staying in the EU I can take my dog into Europe without a passport, freely and unhindered!

There, I knew it wasn't hard.

If Brexit does turn-out to be a success, and we all have to hope it will, a lot of financial damage is already done; billions wiped of UK shares, currency value, economy has further stagnated, inflation due to the aforementioned.....

But we're not here for that discussion Very Happy

C'mon, you can do better than that & a blue passport. Think of a situation where it works out for the best; even if it's a little hypothetical at this point.

There is no reason for Farage/UKIP to exist anymore, they will whither and die.
Politicians can no longer take the voters for granted and need to listen and/or make more persuasive arguments.
Faceless EU bureaucrats will no longer be running this country, all the faceless bureaucrats will be British.
My company might relocate abroad, maybe it will be somewhere warm/sunny with better roads?

I will be able to have cake and eat it.

When my job is relocated, I will be able to make a living selling ice creams to people in the M20 car park waiting for the ferry

David Davis and Theresa May will be able to retire in peace as long as they don't move to Ireland.

The public will become more aware of the affects of globalisation, the good and the bad.
