Barnard has just given evidence to the Select Committee. It's now on video, but the transcript should be available RSN.

It's a common theme I've found amongst those on the right that anyone who offers criticism "can always leave".
If I had a pound for every time I read "if you don't like it you can always leave" I would have left and be living on a private island somewhere.

It would seem some are now trying to stretch it such that if you haven't left or aren't making plans to leave then you have no right to criticise...

Glad to hear some people have a positive attitude

Once again that same old far right trope people who thing differently to you should leave. Give it a rest man.

That was the entire purpose of the Leave leadership. Anyone who ever thought otherwise really didn't have the intelligence required to be allowed to vote.

Lots of things stopping people ... like money and UK pension no longer being inflation adjusted (in many countries) and the need for healthcare insurance, etc. - not such an issue when we were members of the EU.

What was to stop anti EU people from emigrating to a non EU country at any time during the last 40 odd years?
