Banjo I voted to remain because:
1. British courts often ignored the human rights of its own citizens
2. The faceless bureaucracy based in Westminister was and is, no better than the faceless bureaucracy based in Brussels.
3. British Bureaucracy will boom in the next ten years, staffed by faceless, high earning business consultants milking the european teat and british taxpayers just like those UKiP MEP's
4. Our children could continue to go to live, work and study in 27 other beautiful european countries
5. European courts often showed a more enlightened and fair minded approach to legislation affecting its citizens than british courts.
6. The open door policy allowed british immigrants to freely travel, live and settle in Bulgaria and many other countries.
7. I didn't vote for any of the Tory governments that have ruled over me, that imposed austerity upon millions of my fellow british citizens and who I have never been able to vote out when I didn't like what they were doing.
8. I don't believe in small, narrow minded british bigotry, xenophobia and racism which in the past led to our stealing countries belonging to other people - Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, the Americas, the Caribbean, India, Africa and so on and continues to 'other' millions of decent people who now live in the UK.
9. I believe that economically we will take a big hit, (it's on its way) by leaving Europe.
10. I wanted the UK to remain united rather than separated and divided.
11. I wanted my children to have an open, outward looking and tolerant attitude to other people and other cultures.
12. I didn't want free movement and the right to live in other european countries to become the treasured possession of those privileged elites such as Nigel Lawson, Nigel Farage, Russian Oligarch's, Phillip Green, Boris Johnson and all the rest who have the money to go and live wherever they choose.
Well I think you'll get the point. In my opinion, Britain is a more diminished, divided and uglier place than it was two months ago.
