Consider this analogy:-
You have a bike that you ride everyday and it does the job though you are aware of some faults with it,these faults though some serious,aren't something that can't be put right with a some expenditure(both monetary and time).
Then you're offered a new bike but the snag is you aren't allowed to see it or test ride it,until you've bought it and the deal is done and your old bike is taken from you and rendered unrideable by the seller of the new bike.
That is Brexit as remainers see it,it also seems to remainers that leavers will do anything for an unseen new bike.
Sounds like half (posters not political) the posters on here, I haven't bought a new bike in over twenty years......have you
For the last twenty years I haven't been able to afford to.
And there was I thinking you could listen to a reasonable argument
PS,In the past twenty years I bought six new or nearly new bike that I can think of,but I did get to inspect and test ride them first though
To be fair and honest, I have not ben able to afford a bike for about twenty years because I invested in my own business rather than carry on blowing money on toys.
But for a few years now I have been offered a new bike two years running by my long suffering partner
I declined because I have several bikes and two three even quality machines, a new bike would do nothing for my wellbeing, I am happy with what I have.
I have so many spares and a lot of quality stuff too that I will never need to buy anymore parts for the rest of my life, save maybe a few chains and spokes.
I never road tested any of my bikes including half a dozen new motorcycles, but I am a very picky buyer, also back then a bike appeared and would go very quickly from the shop, as shops back then were small at least where I live.
