I didn't take this seriously enough. I didn't think for a moment, we would leave. And we haven't left, yet. But more than half of us want to. I wa...
While the Tory party has expectedly gone into a civil war with Brexits now demanding the throne, Labour's internal war is going in the opposite direction exposing how much out of touch Labour MPs have been in the last decade.
You are not wrong for holding a legitimately cultivated opinion, and you are not bad for saying so, or changing your mind. But together we must stop allowing a fear of offense to legitimise folly. As long as ignorance is bliss, the opposite is also true.
I'm not going to claim we're out of the woods yet; there's a long way to go till the fruits of independence are laid bare. For starters, we're certainly not going to be spending that phantom £350million anytime soon (if it even proves to exist). But seeing people write off a historic opportunity on the basis of one day's events is absolutely crackers.
Ironically, anti-immigration press attention could counteractively lead to the type of homegrown terrorism its readers are seeking to prevent. While there appears to be no single reason to account for what leads a person onto the path of extremism, there is a close-knit relationship between marginalisation and radicalisation.
At the EU referendum, around 75% of 18-24 year-olds voted to remain in the EU, and possibly even a higher number of 16-17 year olds would have too. Why are we not getting our voices heard? More young people should become involved, which would force the politicians to consider our views when making decisions.
It was a privilege (as a young person) to exercise my right to vote. I understand that we live in a democracy, and that fact should be appreciated. However, we are allowed to feel dissatisfied with the results.
I am proud to be part of the 48.2%. I am proud to stand up for what I believe in, and I'm proud to be part of an age demographic in which the majority voted Remain. I am passionate enough to fight the opinions of those who don't agree with me, and to hope for more than what we have been left with in 2016. I believe in the EU, and I believe we can choose to overcome. This is what it's like in the 48.2%.
Nobody expected this to happen. For all their "I'm one of the lads" bluster, neither Nigel Farage nor Boris Johnson had any idea quite what fertile ground they were sowing. They have no idea what it's like to live from pay cheque to pay cheque, to constantly be servicing debt, to be working in a low wage job with eventual retirement the only light at the end of the tunnel.
Perhaps losing this one will teach our younger generation that 'likes' do not equal votes and that no amount of memes can get you the policy that you want. Maybe, it could be a harsh lesson for a generation that is desperately in need of one.
The only hope of the party now is to be bold, offer a radical new alternative to those who have realised their power in this referendum - and to keep Corbyn, who alone can make that appeal credibly, as leader. History suggests that Labour cannot win without him.
I am just one of millions of British citizens and other Europeans who have benefitted from freedom of movement. All this does not matter as we are irrevocably in this situation and we have to make the best of it. Head up, chin high and off we go.
On hearing the Brexit result, my grandad texted me saying "Hopefully we'll find a way to fix things and make this OK". Like me he was shocked, disappointed and hurt that this was the choice made by such a significant proportion of Brits.
Yes, the EU's officials might refuse to negotiate, but that remains to be seen. It's the member states who are in charge within the EU. We're still a member of the EU until we choose to walk away. It's time to hustle. Who dares, wins.
As I write the number of people who have signed the EU referendum petition has just passed the 2,000,000 mark. It is early on Saturday evening. By the time this blog is published (probably Sunday lunchtime) the number of people seeking a second referendum - for good reasons set out below - will be substantially greater.
