20 of Your Burning Brexit Questions Answered

What were the Leave campaign’s main arguments?

The Leave campaign focused on the fact that the UK allegedly sends billions of pounds to the EU government every single week, and doesn’t have exclusive control over where that money is spent. Supporters of the Leave campaign believe all money being spent in Britain should be within British control.

Some people were also seeking to close the borders, so the government could have more control over who is allowed to live and work in the UK.

They don’t believe that the EU was over-regulating, and don’t believe that closing the UK borders would have any positive effect on their sovereignty or economy.
