Why it it so difficult for the nation to accept the fact:

 THAT IT WAS THE  Majority OF THE BRITISH PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO EXIT THE EUROPEAN UNION .

Don't blame the government for the present mess.

Even Teresa May, Phillip Hammond and many other government ministers/officials voted to remain in the EU but majority of the great British public thought otherwise.

Jane,

 for you and all others to vote to exit the European Union was your choice and was your prerogative.
That is what democracy is all about.
But did all of you realised that it was not going to be that easy.

It was not just a matter of sending a letter stating " We are leaving the European Union"

Never mentioned, said, implied  or even thought you were an idiot.

Everyone knew it was not going to be easy to start negotiating on an issue what had never ever been discussed before.

Jane in all fairness to CP I never thought he was having a go at you or anybody in particular, he was generalizing.

I got the impression from the news that they were already established in both countries and are moving the business side to Rotterdam from London, but other parts would still be functioning here. I hope I understood it correctly! They also said it was not directly connected to Brexit, but I do wonder about that!

Unilever have never said if it was connected to Brexit but they chose Netherlands
over Britain. UK government tried to persuade them to stay even up to last minute.
Personally i do not get any joy from seeing one of our oldest and biggest companies
leaving our country but main thing is they have said is peoples jobs will be secure.

Tory MPs have labelled as "wrong" and "unwise" comments made by Sir Vince Cable, that older Brexit voters were "driven by nostalgia". The Lib Dem leader said too many older people who voted Leave longed for a world where "faces were white".

I think that Cable might have been reflecting the views of some members of this forum.
