do you think voters had all the information they needed


do you think everyone had the enough information they needed to make an informed decision? i personally think we didnt have enough information. It was a very rushed campaign on all political parties. Why was so much information missing such as:

1. What would happen with northen ireland (it seems to me that the apparently educated politicians didn't think about it)

2. What whould happen to European workers ?

3. We were not informed about the deal

the goverment should have thought hard and long about the vote

    I've awarded you a star for this post because your questions show fantastic curiosity and it starts a new conversation topic. Well done!
    I wonder what other people think about this? There could be some research to be done here about the election campaigns and it might be worth looking at whether social media had a part to play.

    I personally think they didn’t give out all the information, practically because they knew we wouldnt vote yes. I am not 100% sure- but why else would the Educeated politicians not think to reveal the truth behind Brexit? I’m going to be answering your questions from my point of view; then be looking at others.

    What would happen with Northen Ireland?
    Too all the people who don’t know what’s going on, Northen Ireland is part of the UK, whilst southern Ireland is not; it’s a different country, and they made a promise never to build a wall between the two. If we leave, other people will be able to cross into our country- but is it right to break the promise? This is a hard decision so I think the best solution for this is staying. But what if we did leave? We would go through all the hassle and Theresa’s may ( or another MP ) will have to make a decision , to build a wall and break a promise, or find another way-please reply your ways to solve this. This will cause protest and nobody wants that!

    What would happen to European workers?
    This will be very hard to work, and some people might lose their jobs! This also links in with the first question, if someone had a job in Southern Ireland, it would be hard to work, even harder in the EU. Everyone would have to go through the hassle of getting back to the UK before the deadline, getting a VISA, and going through a check whenever they go to work! As before, I think the best solution is to stay. If we did leave, I’ve already explained what would happen.

    Now I have given some ideas, I hope you can explore more, or think of other questions like these...
    •Why did they not inform us?
    • What would happen if the politicians did inform us?
    •How would this be changed?

    honest_wilddog, the government did think long and hard about the vote as it was a part of David Cameron's manifesto, six out of ten MPs voted for the vote and it was a law within parliament. However, I can see where your coming from owing to the fact that it had to be done and they didn't think of any alternative options.

    I agree about not getting enough information about Brexit. How do they expect us to be able to vote when all we knew is that Brexit means exiting the EU. Its unfair that they keep all the information to themselves. So how is it suposted to be easy to vote like they all say it is.

      I am very anxious because when Brexit have their freedom they might not notice that their is food shortages they are making and in small roads they said inthe speed limits 60 miles per hour, which is very dangerous and predictable that accdients might happen. I think that Brexit need to take it seriously and notice what they are doing to are society.

    NO, I don't think everyone got the information they needed because the government just said the about the positive side of Brexit and although they did not mention the things that we shall loose. I think this is unfair because they are saying what positive things will occur but not the bad side. This is happening because they are wanting their decision to work
