    Oh god, Bre-entry is coming.

    Blue passports. Those are the only long term benefits for the common people as well.

    What use will they be in the way of a benefit?

    They will evoke nationalistic feelings. It's a common way of satisfying the lower classes throughout human history.

    Well there might be a few shortages, but nothing too serious. A few might lose their jobs when/if their companies relocate to the EU and/or Asia. The problems will come when it's time for the dividend to be paid and it becomes clear there is none.

    Apparently there will be a shortage of rubber gloves at Heathrow so I will suffer less poking and prodding when I go through security.

    Tom Kibasi doesnt even understand how the balance of payments work so I wouldn't put too much credibility on that spiel..

    Also he seems to be of the opinion that the Uk stopped manufcaturing things during teh Thatcher administration when nothing could be further from the truth - manufacturing output in now far higher than it was then.

    It might evoke nationalist feelings and mark the holder as a target when abroad.

    Why the title of my post was changed lol, i did not say "benefits", i said "changes" in the daily life of the common people, those who wake up everyday and go to work, in easy words what will i find at the shop tomorrow? Can i still go visit my friend on the other borders. Tell me if this is a pro-brexit forum. By changing the word in "benefits" you have mislead my topic into making it like "end of march we will have benefits". We shall see, but definitely there will be some changes as i have said.
