I actually own the company and have employees with futures that I am responsible for. We are doing ok because we have products that people want and are competitively priced. We are not magically protected by the EU or Brexit, and this could change 'overnight' so the future is not assured. We are regularly involved in tendering exercises, so our business is not nice and safe. As to the holiday home for planned retirement, you write "sitting safely on that fence" as if it isn't important. Perhaps you have thousands of euros and could afford to effectively lose a property overnight?
You're right about people losing their jobs but stuff happens; it doesn't mean a decision or policy is wrong for the majority in the longer term. You can always finds a group of individuals who have suffered as the result of a policy or decision but it doesn't make that policy or decision the wrong one. As you've owned a company you should know that from time to time you may need to make someone redundant for the sake of the rest of the company. You can go on about 85 people losing their jobs here and 6 people losing their jobs there; there's as much chance of that happening if we stay in the EU when the next Euro crisis happens.
As for your sister, I didn't want to drag her into this, but you have already done that. I'm sure she is very intelligent and good at her job. You imply she's in favour of the UK remaining in the EU and I respect that. At least she's not going round saying old farts like me shouldn't have been allowed to vote! (not on this forum anyway!)
Which brings me back to one of my main reasons for starting on this thread; your reference to Cable's most recent pearls of wisdom. His comments typified many remainers who are so convinced they are right that they assert that people voting for Brexit must be a) just about to die b) so rich they don't care c) unintelligent and d) racist. They cannot compute that someone else might have a different opinion to themselves for very genuine reasons. I simply pointed out that in certain societies the elders are treated as the 'wise ones'; it's ironic that your resulting posts have gone on to prove my point about how some remainers think. You know nothing of why I voted as I did other than the contents of your vivid imagination.
