That's not the question of the referendum though, is it? 

Problem is, the Leave side don't actually have a coherent plan in place so we're left guessing what would happen. They've said we'd have a deal like Switzerland or Norway in the past yet both of those countries have had to accept free movement of people in order to maintain trade relations. The Swiss system is actually worse because they signed up to Schengen. Even the points system they're now pushing doesn't actually have any substance when you look at it in detail and doesn't then tackle the trade and economic issues that would then arise. 

Even the SNP had a plan for the Scottish referendum. I just don't understand how people can accept this level incoherence and poor planning when the Leave politicians have been pushing this for years.

The SNP were a single party able to place a manifesto for their view.

The leave campaign includes incredibly right wing, centrists, left wing, socialists, trade unions etc. It's hardly a shock that they would all have conflicting ideas as to the best way to proceed after a brexit.


Why does such an obvious thing need pointing out to people?


Socialists who don't like the EU don't like that it doesn't allow state aid for industry.


The more right wing don't like the universal protections.


Nationalists just don't like Brussels overriding our own parliaments.


Some businessmen think their businesses are held back and they would be able to make better decisions without the EU rules.


It would be down to an elected government to shape our direction after the population vote based on their manifestos.


This is what makes this such a different decision to any I know I've ever had to make in my lifetime.


Every brexit argument is merely sometging that we CAN do outside the EU. It's not what we will do.

Except only one of these parties actually has a majority in the house of commons and as such they should be the ones to put together a detailed plan. Having a wide group of people with different reasons for Brexit is no excuse for not having something more concrete in place.

All the other groups can't actually do anything without some pretty major alliances across different parties with very different ideologies.
