I have yet to hear any Brexit supporter provide me with a sensible reason why they voted out. Always bloody 'immigrants'. Do they not realise the 'immigrants' against whom they show so much disdain will still come here with us out of the EU? The only people this effects are the immigrants who they would probably approve of (no matter how wrong that may be) - doctors, nurses, scientists

I would suggest that many (maybe a majority) of those who voted OUT do not have any problem with immigration per-se. The problem is with uncontrolled immigration, which is what we currently have from the EU, and which is only likely to get worse when additional countries join. As has rightly been mentioned, we do need immigration, always have and always will. I have no disdain for immigrants.
Along with that we need the right to determine who can and cannot come to this country. If there is a need for skilled labour (and I emphasise 'skilled') then allow them to come, as every civilized country does.
I believe the second major reason for voting OUT is to escape the profligacy of the EU machine. The £350 million per day figure is totally inaccurate, but even if the net figure was a quarter of that, the money is better retained with local control. How anybody can support a system which shifts its headquarters for a few days every month is beyond me.
