So usually I do my research, I vote and then I moan about everyone who didn’t vote or who voted opposite to myself once the votes have been counted. Now as much as I love a good rant, even I can see that this is a pointless and inefficient cycle.
So, this time, I’m gonna simplify things for y’all as I try and understand the mess myself. IE I’m gonna make a pretty infographic to help you decide (yay pictures!).
It’s way complicated, by the way. And a lot of it is very unclear because it depends on what rules the government would put in place after leaving. Some say if it ain’t broke, don’t Brexit. Some say we could fall back into a recession, lose our trade, our footballers, our Mighty Pound could plummet. But the truth is, it’s pretty damn impossible to work out what exactly will happen. And if I’m honest, my main concern is: what if i can’t pop over to France anymore for a quick holiday? The horror…
So here’s an attempt at summarising, in the plainest of speak, the pros and cons Brexit could have on UK economy… (I know, snooze… But vote kids, and vote smart) (and by kids I mean over 18s…)
It’s a tricky balance. I won’t tell you what to vote (because I just don’t know) but I will tell you: DON’T VOTE BLINDLY. THINK ABOUT IT.
Here’s a really good link to check out if you still don’t have a clue what to do.
Good luck fellow Europeans.
