Brexit: What people say and what people hear…

Brexiters say:
“Uncontrolled immigration has resulted in wage depression” Remain voters hear:
“Get the foreigners out”


Leave says, Remain hears:

Why Leave voters voted for Brexit: “Uncontrolled immigration has resulted in wage depression and the overburdening public services.”

What most Remain voters hear: “Grrr get the bloody foreigners out”

Remain says, Leave hears:

Why Remain voters voted against Brexit: “Membership of the EU is critical for economic growth and peace in Europe!”

What many Leave voters understand: “Yes, the EU facilitates trade amongst the rich metropolitan bubble but it hurts economic growth everywhere else, which actually gives rise to nationalistic tensions.”

Does that sound accurate?
