Thank you for this Aileen.   I have noticed that the Remain did not seem to explain all of this to the electorate.  We only had one very scrappy leaflet from the Remain which I feel was very poor.

Brussels is already behaving badly.  They are have a meeting about this crisis between the six founding members.  I wonder how the other 21 countries feel about this.  I have also notice that they re beginning to see that their attitude to reform may have pushed us out.

T he young people are very worried about being able to work in Europe.  How many actually are able to work there as most jobs need people who speak the language.  It was the same when the doctors threatened to go to Australia.  The Australians said that they were not recruiting any more as they had enough. 

Something which has not been emphasised is that the British people who work in Europe are spread across the whole region but we seem to have most of the others here from all countries. To want to control migration is not being racist as seems to be the cry from a lot of people

Re Brexit, there's some very helpful and positive information in this article, if you scroll down to What happens now? including the fact that there's a possibility that it might not even happen - scroll down to Could MPs block an EU exit?

I can't see them blocking the result of a democratic process it would be political suicide and cause mayhem amongst communities etc and I fear if that happened that the backlash would definitely be directed at the migrant populations as this appears to be the main point of consideration for many folks voting the way they did . 
On another point I don't think this will trigger the "domino effect" with other countries choosing to leave, I fear the EU will try to make an example out of the U.K. by making the next wee while until the official divorcee very uncomfortable so as to deter other countries from considering an exit.

Could MPs block an EU exit?

The referendum result is not legally binding - Parliament still has to pass the laws that will get Britain out of the 28 nation bloc, starting with the repeal of the 1972 European Communities Act.

The withdrawal agreement also has to be ratified by Parliament - the House of Lords and/or the Commons could vote against ratification, according to a House of Commons library report.

In practice, Conservative MPs who voted to remain in the EU would be whipped to vote with the government. Any who defied the whip would have to face the wrath of voters at the next general election.

One scenario that could see the referendum result overturned, is if MPs forced a general election and a party campaigned on a promise to keep Britain in the EU, got elected and then claimed that the election mandate topped the referendum one.  Two-thirds of MPs would have to vote for a general election to be held before the next scheduled one in 2020.
