By speaking with some of my dearest British friends living in London, I understood the following:
- They trust their government will do the best out of Brexit (as an Italian, I was appalled by this approach as in Italy we have been taught the hard way never to trust our own government or their promises).
- They have been explicitly promised by the government that with Brexit nothing will change for them except that there will be less immigrants entering the UK in the future.
- They all have their busy lives (kids go to school, crazy boss at the office, mortgage to pay, etc.) and Brexit did not really impact them so far: I was surprised, for example, that not once they raised the Brexit topic with me first.
- They believe eventually nothing will change as the EU and the UK will find a last-minute agreement to safeguard their rights and keep the current status quo.
