I went out for a run this morning. Was enjoying the fresh air, the countryside and my second captains podcast when it was taken over by Brexit talk with a couple of the English guests they had on. All doom and gloom. No place for it on a sports podcast. People worry way too much about money. No one will starve over this.
I dunno asal.
An awful lot of people in the UK already depend on food banks. This is serious shit.
People are dying earlier than they used to. Mental illness incidence is very high.

Every 1% rise in unemployment generates something like 300 extra cancers and 500 suicides in the US
Economic chaos is literally fatal for some people at the poorer end of the income spectrum

Do you just make this stuff up?

North East lower life expectancy...
2 areas in Glasgow have a 19 year difference in life expectancy.  Poverty kills.

You said an awful lot... Which isn't the case.... People are living longer full stop, poverty or not, still living far longer than our grandparents and that's a fact
A lot of people are MR but the poorest people are not.
You can Google Case and Deaton for the picture from the US.

The states is a totally different argument, with no universal healthcare

The shafting of communities and the descent into hopelessness is the same. Life expectancy differentials are widening .

Listen to yourselves, the people have voted democratically to exit the EU, quit whinging and finger pointing and accept the decision and move on.

I'll quote you on that when Hillary gets sworn in as President.

Dole merchants - nice term for people seeking unemployment benefit. Here, but for the grace of God, go I.

Ok jobseekers, lets be pc about things that suit your agenda and un pc what you think its ok

When I lived in Salford I had daily encounters with the long term unemployed. I think "dole merchants" is a better term than "job seekers" because these people had no intention of working. Probably had several generations of family with no history of working, only watching TV, knocking about town, harassing students, fighting, drinking, and getting involved in crime. I know unemployment benefit is needed for people who are temporarily between jobs, but the people who don't want to work do exist, and they exist in big numbers.

The French are probably going to put the boot in. Democracy is about giving the people what they want, good and hard.

You don't have to go to Salford to find that type, quite a few here in Northern Ireland and they're not immigrants.

Not surprised with the brexit - it's a protest reaction to illegal immigration. Maybe now the EU will change their policy to stop any more states from voting the same way.

It is a protest vote, Farage aside - I doubt anyone expected it or wanted it, I see China is laughing at how democracy works.  :)

There you have it the young can blame their apathy now instead of the grey vote.
