    You shamelessly make up false stories to try to persuade the gullible. Look at what they actually said:

    Narendra Modi: "I have nothing to say to them. As far as India is concerned, if there is an entry point for us to the EU, that is the UK and that is Great Britain." <Self interest. Nothing negative about India's relationship with Britain or the consequences of Brexit.
    Justin Trudeau "An effective European voice in the world is vital. The EU is a unique partner for Canada, and Canada has a direct stake in a strong and united EU." <Nothing about Brexit.
    Tony Abbott " " <I couldn't find anything
    Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard "If I were British, which I’m not, I’d vote to leave. You have lost your sovereignty."
    John Key "if we had the equivalent of Europe on our doorstep... we certainly wouldn't be looking to leave it." <Self interest. Nothing negative about NZ's relationship with Britain.
    Ronald Sanders “Increased trade with Commonwealth countries is perfectly possible for Britain. It does not have to shed itself of Europe for that to happen." <So he doesn't care either way.

    What, the same president who believes women earn 77 cents on the dollar? He's no smarter than Boris.

    By compounding. I have no clue how staying put or leaving would effect me personally, but there seems to be a lot of sensible people saying stay.

    Can't disagree on "sensible" - they've profited (at least in part) from the status quo. Some have got extremely rich from it. They'd be daft to not try and maintain the situation that lined their pockets in the first place. Kinda puts a caveat on their opinion though.

    Indeed, although I've mentioned amounts, does it really matter if the U.K.'s net payment to the EU is £12 billion, £8 billion, or even if it were "only" £1 billion per annum? Either way it's a vast amount of money which could do much more good kept in the country.

    Which President of the United States? I don't think the present incumbent of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is probably that well informed about anything much,

    Exactly. Britain might trade with all of them at the moment, but it's only on the EU's terms. (The same EU which talks about "free trade" all the time.)

    Obama will be long gone by the time we start discussing trade with the US after Brexit. Trump has already stated the UK would not be 'at the back of the queue', so that side of the remainers' argument is well shot. Whilst Clinton is keeping her powder dry on the matter.

    Perhaps they wouldn't decide to. But at least ouside the EU the U.K. would be in a far better position to try and make the U.K. more more attractive to those buyers, because (a) they wouldn't be bound by all the EU's regulations for the overall manufacturing process of the goods, (b) they wouldn't be bound by all the related EU's bureaucratic regulations about running a business, and (c) they wouldn't be bound by the EU's regulations about how they sell U.K. products to other countries. It might actually be possible to give U.K. goods a competitive edge in one way or another, which, of course, despite bleating about free competition all the time is the one thing the EU does not want, since it regards anything which gives one country a slight edge over another as being that "unlevel playing field" and "unfair competition."
