The Reasons we Voted Leave

According to the Lord Ashton poll taken after the EU Referendum on the 23rd of June, 2016, the principal reason for voting to Leave the political EU, was that "Decisions about the UK should be taken in the UK", and not be decided by the EU, whereas, those in the Remain camp were afraid of leaving the EU - A major victory for scaremongering by the Establishment and their friends in the wider world.

Except that the Remain voter's also believed - falsely - that they could have the "Best of both worlds" by Remaining, because of UK's Opt-Out's and Vetoes meant that the UK would have access to the Single Market without having to join the Euro, and would not be part of the no borders area! In effect, they thought we could stay in the EU, and not have to fully integrate with the EU. Clearly, without the perceived UK Opt-Out's and Vetoes, the leave vote is likely to have been very much larger - and they were obviously not aware of the Terms and Conditions in the Lisbon Treaty (2007) - for more, see What Remaining Really Means

It is also clear that there is a totally different mindset between the two groups - The Remain Camp are more dependent and inward looking, and the Leave Camp are more independent and outward looking.
