    If you don't know how being part of the EU affects us now then you probably won't even notice a difference. Ignorance is bliss maybe, but I know I'm unhappy with the ways things are now and an EU-future looks grim.

    We are tied to a continent of weak-willed leaders who support unilateral European nuclear disarmament, unilateral green policies that damage only European economies while China builds a coal-powered electricity plant a week, who support uncontrolled mass immigration of economic migrants into Europe to the detriment of European society, who have some how allowed a supranational union of over 500 million people forming the world's largest economy to be pushed around and held to ransom by Turkey, a runt of a country barely on the cusp of developing nation status.

    The continentals are too set in their ways, it's impossible for us to change the EU's course of action now, we need to jump ship before it's too late.

    The UK will keep the Pound.

    Effectively nothing would happen,

    - we'd invoke article 50 and enter a two year continued protected trade deal (as we have at the moment) with the EU, in which time we'd negotiate our own deal
    -we'd immediately retian our seat at the WTO and so have the ability to make our own trade deals
    - There would be an immediate repatriation of powers to the UK parliament from Brussels

    Over a period of time we will be able to opt out of regulations, stop paying membership fees etc

    Effectively not much happens so theres nothing to worry about

    Actually, it could be much longer, as two years is a very, very short period in which to undo all the work of the EU. It takes years just to arrange simple free trade agreements.

    -we'd immediately retian our seat at the WTO and so have the ability to make our own trade deals
    We already make our own trade deals.

    Unless we join the EEA.

    Cite? I haven't heard anything of France seeking to unilaterally disarm.

    unilateral green policies that damage only European economies while China builds a coal-powered electricity plant a week,
    Oh, sure, let's just **** the planet over for a quick buck :rolleyes: in the long term, China is screwed precisely because of this short-sightedness.

    who support uncontrolled mass immigration of economic migrants into Europe to the detriment of European society,
    *sigh* no, they don't.

    who have some how allowed a supranational union of over 500 million people forming the world's largest economy to be pushed around and held to random by Turkey, a runt of a country barely on the cusp of developing nation status.

    I always find it amusing that so called 'eurosceptics' have the utmost belief that this incompetent and unfair EU that we get such a bad deal from will turn around and give us whatever we want post exit.

    Only if you're completely unrealistic we will get what we want if we vote out but there will be a punishment and that will be contributing to the eu budget. We will still save money but not the amounts the unrealistic think we will

    Why would there be a punishment? Neither side can have any interest in disrupting trade. If there are millions of jobs in the UK which depend on trade with Europe, there must be even more millions of jobs in other EU member states that depend on trade with the UK ... such is the trade surplus the EU has with the UK.

    Any 'punishment' the EU metes out will just make it look ridiculously petty. Just how popular do you think the EU wants to be with European citizens?

    Look you can think what you like but there will be a punishment for leaving or many other countries would follow suit.

    I'm not a remain voter I'm just realistic

    Who has said there'll be a 'punishment'? If no one has, aren't you getting ahead of yourself? If many other countries follow suit it doesn't say much for the remain case. And if you're not a remain voter, are you a leave voter?

    I'd like to see the EU put forward a protectionist arrangement whereby preventing trade with the UK despite it being cheaper to import from here.

    That would be very interesting for outsiders like the US and China. I think it would set an example of who can and can't be trusted to trade with.

    So you want to harm this country why?

    Why would they stop trading with their biggest market?

    Why would they stop trading when we buy more from them than we sell to them to the tune of 60 billion a year?

    Oh yea how would they circumvent the world trade organisations rules?

    Just as a start.

    Immigration will stop. UK is full. In the past 20-30 years British native people became minority in many places and schools.

    They would negotiate a trade deal, we would control eu migration like we do none eu migration, pay a bit less to the eu budget, be able to blame our government for anything in future as the eu wouldn't be responsible anymore and life would go on

    Speculation. But even if we could negotiate a trade deal, every country that's ever done it had to follow EU regulation and allow free movement. We just shouldn't get a say in anything.
