    I *think* I'm going to vote remain. Not 100% sure though.
    No offence but if you don't have conviction or cannot rationalise your reasons, I don't think it's fair to be voting.
    By all means do as it's your right, but I admit it rubs me the wrong way when people do that.

    Remain in. Putin and ISIS are hoping we will leave.
    Was that sarcastic?
    have you considered other arguments if you're being serious?

    I'm pretty sure I'm voting to remain, though I'm not absolutely definite yet.
    Same as Jenx301 answer.

    Hey man, there is still 10 days for people to fully decide. Personally I think it is better for people to be open to different ideas and opinions instead of already being dead-set.

    With mixed messages and campaign propaganda hitting us from all angles, it can be a tough decision to make... do you know how you're going to vote in the EU referendum yet?
    :yawn:

    If UK leaves, the immigrants that have already come will stay.
    No. If UK leaves, the immigrants that have already come may lose their right to stay.

    Oh and you didn't reply to my question in the other thread...
    Naveed, are you anglo-saxon?

    While the primary conclusion i drew was that referenda are awful ideas in which two sides spout even more extremist guff than at a general election, the secondary conclusion i drew is that our fortunes are not tied to membership of the EU and the modest short term pain may be worth it for long run gains. We can also prevent being polluted by the third world.

    I kept an open mind but i'm now declared for Leave.

    I do, but why is this a public poll?

    I'm 16, so I can't vote. (why, though?)
    If I could, I'd vote in.
    Because you're a child and you're not mature enough to make informed decisions.
    Doesn't surprise me that you'd vote remain, either.

    I have plenty of rationality for my reasons, but I'm not going to say that I am 100% sure I'm going to close myself off to any other input.

    The referendum isn't some kind of light banter where you pick a side and stick with them just because that's the way it is. It's a big decision that will have big consequences either way the vote swings. My conviction is in me wanting to make informed choices.

    I know why I want to vote to remain, but that doesn't mean if a good argument for leave suddenly pops up I'm just going to ignore it for the sake of keeping my previous point of view. I will consider it. Hence not being 100%.

    There's nothing 'unfair' about actually thinking about my decision.

    Sorry for making any presumptions or causing offence.

    It's just that I know some people who will be voting who are voting because they have the ability to, instead of actually rationalising reasons for a particular side and having any conviction to it.

    Yeah, I get that. I think there's a lot of people who feel like they have to vote but don't know enough, though I think if we stopped people voting on those grounds the majority of the country wouldn't be able to vote honestly. I think a lot of undecided people vote on the grounds of what the people around them tell them to vote.

    You've just made that up lol. Nobody knows what will happen, the leave campaign haven't even mentioned it.
    The Vienna convention means they won't be made to leave. Laws cannot be introduced to change the past.
