Brexiteers happy for UK to go into recession.

People who voted for Brexit would be happy to leave the EU, even if it means food and travel prices to rocket and the UK goes into recession, an exclusive LBC poll reveals.
The survey for LBC by Deltapoll shows that 70% of leavers are happy to leave the EU even if it means longer queues at ports and airports border control.
And more than want to leave even if it means the cost of food rising significantly (54%) and the UK goes in to recession (51%).
Meanwhile, more leavers believe Boris Johnson would deliver a 'Real Brexit' compared to Theresa May. 39% would prefer the former Foreign Secretary, while only 30% of Brexiteers want Theresa May in charge.
The findings will heap pressure on the Prime Minister, especially after Mr Johnson came out firing in his Daily Telegraph column this morning as reports of a leadership challenge increase.
He compared the Brexit negotiations to a rigged wrestling match that only the EU can win, saying under the plans the UK will get nothing from Brussels.
LBC's Political Editor Theo Usherwood explained the poll shows how little opinion has changed on the EU. Speaking to Nick Ferrari, he said: "What our poll shows is that opinion appears to be set. Very little seems to change the mind of leave voters.
"The Prime Minister might be saying that Brexit means Brexit and we are scratching our heads wondering what she means. But voters have a very clear idea in their own minds.
"65% say it means full control of our borders. 63% says it means no more payments to the European Union.
"That presents a problem, because the Prime Minister has already ruled both of those out. We know that negotiations have taken place with regards to control of our borders and of course we're paying that £39billion to the EU as part of the divorce bill."One other interesting element of the poll - both Conservative and Labour leave voters would rather leave the European Union than for their party to be in power.

Short term pain, long term gain. Brexiteers are visionaries. Remainers have no sense of adventure.

If you donít care about the NHS or our car industry or universities or farming or fishing or manufacturing or Northern Ireland or the poor or anyone with cancer or whose job depends on EU exports/imports, then I guess you could think Brexit will be terrific.

We've been 'in recession' quite a few times since we joined the EEC in 1973. EU states are suffering exceptionally high youth unemployment despite the fact that the EU is the land of milk and honey - 43% in Greece, 33% in Spain, 31% in Italy... and so on. I wonder why our Remainers (or do we call them EUnicorns these days) never seem to mention that?

Yes, and once we're fully exited the Tories will definitey not relax immigration to an African nation or other source of cheap labour they've just done a trade deal with, to flood the country and keep wages at a minimum. Imagine what their donors could get away with paying if ony we had 43% unemployment.
But they wouldn't do that, that's not their style, they'd much rather see low levels of unemployment, even if that meant taking a slight hit on their shares portfolios and seeing a thinner domestic market.
