No, just the last ditch pathetic gamble of a fear project that is going horribly wrong

Actually he is right. The people who support Brexit are those that have retired and can afford to deal with any ensuing economic problems. That is why older people support it. There are also the working class who live close to the immigrant population and who compete for the jobs that immigrants do. These are people in Lincolnshire, Southampton, the working class areas of London (the virtue signallers probably do not know they actually exist at all).
The remainers however are a mixed bunch of Brit loathing liberals and the vested interests of government and large corporations and cartels of industries like insurance. They also happen to be the young whose jobs and entire livelihoods may be affected by an economic collapse.

Yes, Brexit is for the rich. After all, EU membership has really helped narrow the rich-poor divide so far :grin
