"Ah I see. As we are in easier reach to London than other areas we don't have any deprivation then?"
Please don't distort what I say - I did not say that, nor do I believe it
Working people everywhere will be hit by the Brexit steamroller , those within the reach of London, where you can usually find half-decent work, even if it's in the 'Black Economy' will be less so that the rest of Britain
" Are they racists too?"
Unfortunately, some of them are
We all grew up in a post Empire Britain where foreigners were to be pitied and exploited becaiuse they were inferior' - we even sang hymns saying just that
I spent enough time with people from abroad - first on the docks in Liverpool, then with refugees and Holocaust survivors in Manchester and finally in gloriously multicultural London - all of which allowed me to form my opinions of hands-on experience
The north of England is just as prone to being used by being told that foreigners were likely to take our jobs, houses and women, wby those who it suits to spread that noxious message

" Are they racists too?"
A drop in the ocean comared to what is being lost br firms pissing off to avoid the damaging effects Brexit
100 obs - there are probably as many firms that have been forced to close already or are thinking of closing because of the uncertain future that has been created
Just wait till when Brits start pouring in from Europe because they can no longer work there
It was estimated that somewhere around 11,000 Brits are claiming dole in Europe
