Why I am against Brexit as it stands

Look, if Brexit was going to benefit the everyday people of the UK, I would put my hand up and shout "YES PLEASE". But all we get are generic promises of golden opportunities, fraud (as in the big red Fund the NHS bus) and opportunities for the wealthy to become wealthier, including by tax dodging (for me tax evasion and avoidance are the exact same thing except for BS legality). If Brexit spelled the end of tax dodging and money laundering in the UK, if Brexit allowed us to drop income tax under £100,000 a year (made up from true luxury rate WAVT for true luxuries and the taxation of money and job exports out of the UK, and from increased taxes on fraudulently acquired own to rent properties, and from increased taxes on empty foreign owned UK properties, and from taxing expat British nationals on their worldwide incomes irrespective of their UK residency status like the US does - British expats being able to change their nationalities to another of course), then it would be worth the pain.

I understand the EU is not perfect, but none of the protagonists like Nigel Farage tried to make it better, they only ever tried to pull it apart; the truth is in their name.
Until and if Brexit can be shown to be for the people, I am 100% against it for the following reasons.

1) It moves us away from Europe, our neighbours, not closer. It is about Victorian era anti-European sentiment, driven by our ugly if not downright nasty class system. It reduces the good faith we are shown by our fellow Europeans.

2) It makes us weaker, not stronger on the world stage. Oh yes it does. Our global ambitions should / appear to be pretty much the same as our European neighbours. Issues such as fair trade, the environment, dealing with human rights abuse and corruption, we can only truly fight with partners. In fact, a Brexit would likely involve the UK in corruption payments for trade, like the bad days.
