    So, we don't seem to have a thread on this despite it being the most important thing to happen in UK politics in my lifetime.

    What are people's views?

    I'm firmly behind staying in, simply as the economic forecasts for leaving make fairly grim reading. Additionally, working for a multinational that benefits hugely from the single market means leaving would make my job less stable long term than it currently is.

    EU: "Do you want what is clearly laid out infront of you, plus the chance of getting rid of the fucking parasites that are currently in power?"

    Tories/Racist Dickheads: "Or do you want what is in the special secret suprise box?"

    I quite liked the club analogy.

    We have all been on a night out with that mate who when you are in a club says "it's shit here" let's go somewhere else. Then when you leave you realise he has no idea where to go and the place you left won't let you back in.
    Without a decent follow up plan a leave vote could see the UK standing in a kebab shop arguing about who's fault it is.

    SIMPLES.

    Look at other countries that have lesser bartering power than we do, how they have carved their own deals with trade agreements etc.

    Obama is a total fucking peen-arse though in all this...

    Lets get that sorted from early.

    TTIP must be avoided at all costs.

    The EU could do better tho. It´s basically Germany, Britain and the Netherlands gang raping the others by luring companies in with low taxes.

    A lot of things must be unified.

    Then..

    COMMUNISM :teeth:

    This whole thing is really fucking with my shit. I need to convert money to a different currency, but the whole debate is dragging the value of the £ down. Once we have voted to stay, I can then change my money and profit by a substantial margin.

    As soon as boris showed his approval for leaving, the £ went down quicker than a lesbot in its first porno.

    I really hope all the switched on people turn out to vote, coz all I hear is racist cunts badger on about leaving to get these foreigners out of our country. Thats their whole argument for wanting to leave. Twats.

    Someone I know said, "I don't mind staying in but lets get the president of Europe out on his arse. I didn't vote for him so he shouldn't be in power".

    I'm voting out. I don't think we need the EU and it's collosal legislation overuling our own democracy for the sake of being schackled to a idealogy and economy that isn't getting out of its own recession.
    We don't need the EU trade agreements to trade with European countries, in which we are firewalled by tarriffs that prevent us from cheaper imports elsewhere.
    I think Britain can then sort to improve it's own industries, rather than be just a cog in a wheel spun by unelected EU bureaucrats that pass laws that overrule our own rights - like taking 8 years to extradite Abu Hamza due to moronic EU human rights law.

    Fuck the EU. It's a failing empire. France and Germany seem to be close to following us with an EU referendum.

    It's true what someone said. Brexit does kinda sound like a shitty dance music festival in Wales with an all white DJ line up

    ITS, not fucking IT'S, you obviously too thick to vote, racist CUNT. If only this site had an edit function, which is another reason to vote out of the EU.

    Yes. It was.

    And it doesn't matter what you vote for or how many times, nobody is leaving the EU. Even the countries that aren't in the EU are really in the EU and nobody is leaving.

    I agree with your initial point, I dislike the fact that we have laws imposed on us not of our own making.

    However I don't see how we will be able to negotiate better deals by leaving the EU. The minute we step out we're not in a strong position because other countries no we need to negotiate new deals quickly to ensure we can continue trading in a profitable manner. Other countries will have extra leverage to get more out of us. The idea that we'll be able to negotiate access to the free market for less than we currently pay (and without freedom of movement) is fanciful in the extreme. I don't see that we will immediately get stronger deals with non EU nations as well.

    Some of the laws and red tape are ludicrous and need reform, but i'd rather be confident that my income and quality of life remains protected (for now) than be overly concerned about extradition laws. As an aside, most of the failure to deport illegal entrants are due to the failings of the home office as opposed to the EU.
