One can only hope the continual scaremongering and plucking figures out of nowhere to support his current arguments will actually be a positive for making people vote OUT.


One can only hope that Farage knows more about economics than the Bank of England, IMF and IFS.


No doubt he's got just as much chance of guessing what will happen......given those august bodies penchant for getting it wrong .......

Remember what they said would happen when were forced out of the ERM? .....

See no one tells you what the hidden agendas are.A. lot of this hinges on how we feel a out Russia.Nigel Farrage feels we should be a lot friendlier as we share more values with Russia than say some middle eastern countries.America wants a strong fence of pro America countries around Russia and has nuclear missiles bases in at least one of them Romania.A lot of things and interests are going on that we are completely unaware of.

Hi,

Assume that anyone giving advice will be doing it for selfish reasons.

It would be great to see a list of all the laws that Brussels have imposed on us since we joined the EU.

I wonder why that would be? ........

I would imagine that mr Cameron, now he is soon retiring, will be looking forward to a well paid, powerful position, in the European parliament? could that be why he is manically pro EEC? if we came out, come the general election he'd have to find a job!
USSR broke up, Yugoslavia broke up, Scotland and wales want independence, so how does that tie in with bigger is better ?
i don't think the EEC would NOT allow us back in if we came out and it didn't work. theyre desperate for power, its even caused a war in Europe, when Ukraine wanted in and Russia thought no. AND turkey is not really Europe, is it (only a liitle bit).
i like visiting countries cos theyre different. i want them to stay that way (at least til ive been there!!!!).
i heard mr Cameron say that we would lose the protection of the labour laws (etc) if we left. does that mean his government cant be trusted? will they repeal our labour laws??? his plan is working, there are a lot of people out there who are unsure, so will vote stay.

Yeah, I thought that was a pretty damning indictment of our political parties too ..........

Its like them saying "stay in the EU because we can't be trusted"........

But unlike the EU............ we can vote them out .......

Well 60 percent of the electorate tried to vote the Tories out last year, but they are still there, with a bigger majority of seats - so voting them out is not that easy.

Quite a bit like the EU really.

If this referendums done anything, its made people get involved, I wouldn't be surprised if there's a record turnout on the 23rd ..........

Hi,

The question is simply IN or OUT. But is there something in the small print, like .... X% of those entitled to vote must vote, else it's a nil contest?.

I'm still expecting some concessions to be offered by the "elite" states.

I'm still in favour of "No trade barriers", and "Free Movement", but no rights to stay or claim. ... sort of what we voted for in the first place.

I wonder how many people who voted against having an Identity Card, will now vote to remain ... and pay for a passport. I think Google said a French identity card cost €20.

Hi,

Our Glorious Leader went to Brussels to negotiate a better deal for the UK ... which might suggest that the present deal was not very good.

He promised us a referendum after his triumphant return.

His return was not particularly triumphant, but he now tells us that the original deal was the best thing since canned beer, and seems to suggest that a referendum was not a good idea.

Everybody seems to be concentrating on the "Free Trade" element .... which is not the bit that most of us want changed.

I suggest that the Remain Camp would be happy if atlases were redrawn ... with Great Britain changed to Little Europe. Maybe we should sell shares to France and Germany. Scotland and France were always friends, The Welsh were not friends with anybody, as far as I can make out. And the Irish seem to related to most Americans. England and Spain were always friends, but I have heard that the Dutch are buying up large areas of Spain, in preparation for the sea reclaiming Holland.

This thread seems to have died a death and yet so much has happened since the last posti on here.

Sadly the death of Jo Cox is a big landmark. Both sides using her death to their own advantage.
Perosnally I think the whole referendum should have been postponed for six months following Ms Cox's sad demise due to the undue influence it would have on peoples decisons and voting preference.

What do people think? Were any of you out voters and have now decided to vote stay or vice versa? Did you still have to make up your mind and have the events of last Thursday when Ms Cox was attacked influenced your decision? Do you feel you have enough facts to make a good rounded judgement?

Anyone like to comment?

The actions of a lunatic shouldn't be allowed to pervert the result, but its clear the Remain camp are doing their not so subtle best to tar all leaver's with the same brush .........

One month on and they are still dragging their feet. Our new leader says that she wont press the OUT button this year, and it will then take a minimum of 2 years to sort out the tangled mess.

personally, I beleive that the politicians will find that they cant/wont/ make a decision, and the advisors will always find another "ah , but you cant exactly do that , because,".... remember the programme Yes Minister,

there was always a snag..

second referendum, scotland wants in, etc.

question?. Will we be in or out in 5 years time..answers on a postcard please to the lady in charge .

I predict "THEY"will find a fudged compromise .. any bets?

My prediction is that it will all become so complex that in 10 years time no-one will be able to agree whether or not we have left.

The essence of good political negotiation is to give everyone the impression that they have won.

Resourceful, creative and switched on people tend to twig when something's trying hoodwink them into a controlling situation and quickly give them the middle finger.
