    It was not about immigration, we voted out as we could not make our own laws, we were being controlled by unelected drunks dictating how we should live. Forced into using kilos instead of pound and ounces, kilometres instead of miles, taxed for ladies sanitary products, we had to fight to keep our Sterling  and not accept Euros.

    The Human Rights Act stopped a killer being deported as he had a Cat.!!

    Good riddance.

    Many racist people who voted for Brexit on so-called immigration grounds expected all 'foreign' people to leave the country, including people of colour... so there's nothing you can do about stupidity.

  • Brexit was never about controlling immigration.  It was about making a few rich at the expense of the rest of us.  Britain's economy has always depended on immigrants.  Net immigration from outside the EU has always been more than EU immigration.  The racists, xenophobes and jingoists who voted for Brexit were duped, but now they're going to have to live with the consequences of their stupidity.

    Given that Brexit was nothing to do with 'controlling immigration' but UK making their own laws instead of being rulled by non elected EU ( which the UK never signed up to when joining the then common market)

    In so far as opening the doors to Hong Kong citizens, the UK feels they have a moral duty to make that offer and they certainly do not need to 'consult' the public spending millions doing a referendum when there are clear international laws the UK was one of the founders of on Human Rights which lead to refugee and asylum laws
