A few weeks ago, a business card holder with the words ‘Not For Me’ written on it walked through the door of a pub in a city where he works in Coventry.
The card was given to him by a colleague, and he says he did not feel the need to take it off.
‘It’s a bit awkward,’ he said.
‘I don’t want to look like a complete ass.’
The business card is an easy way for businesses to express their disapproval of Brexit.
The campaign for Remain was boosted by the fact that people had a hard time believing the argument.
The phrase ‘Brexit means Brexit’ is often used to promote the cause, but the wording itself is not entirely accurate.
‘A Brexit vote would be a vote for a new direction,’ said John Whelan, professor of politics at Warwick University.
‘There would be no referendum, the UK would remain in the customs union and the single market.’
But in the end, it would have a huge impact on the economy and on people’s lives, so it’s something that has to be considered.’
‘Not on your terms’ The card is not just an easy-to-use way of expressing opposition to Brexit.
Many people do not understand that the EU is not for their interests.
They do not know that Brexit has left them without any control over immigration, a lack of access to international financial markets, and the possibility of a hard border between the UK and Europe.
For those who have had a difficult time understanding the arguments for and against Brexit, the card offers a helpful tool.
For many people who have not been in the business of politics, it’s easy to feel that they are not on the right side of history, said Alan Saffold, professor and director of the Centre for the Study of Political and Social Identity (CSSI).
‘The Brexit argument is a way of explaining why the world is not working for you,’ he added.
‘And it is an argument that the UK has no business making.’
Brexit is not the only reason why people have lost faith in politics.
There is a lack on the part of many of the public that it is actually possible to be both a politician and a business owner, and many have given up on politics altogether.
‘The idea that you can be both of these is one of the most frustrating things in the world,’ said Alan.
‘Because if you are a politician, you’re supposed to represent the people.
If you’re a business, you don’t have a say in what you do, and it’s up to the people to make the decision.’
The fear of the unknown Many of the reasons people are turning away from politics are related to the fear of uncertainty.
Many believe that Brexit is a major blow to the UK’s economy and that businesses will be hit hard by a hard Brexit.
For some people, Brexit was the only option left for them, and they feel that the only way to regain control of their lives is to stay out of politics.
‘Brexit has made the idea of politics irrelevant for a lot of people, but I think there is still a certain amount of optimism about politics,’ said Peter, a 45-year-old from London who works in the City of London.
‘When we have a new government, we can start with a fresh start and it will be a very different kind of country.
‘If we’re not going to be able to make a living off of politics anymore, we don’t know what we are going to do next.’
‘It doesn’t matter what you are’ ‘The best way to explain to people that politics doesn’t work for them is to tell them that they have no choice,’ said Paul, a 42-year old from London.
Paul has been in politics since his teens and has voted Remain in every election.
He believes that it was a matter of choice, and that the choice is between being a politician or having a career.
‘Politics is about power and privilege and you don
