    All you have to do is look at 1hour 5mins onwards. Last five mins. Take a look at that if you are undecided, and don't bother about figures on here, they don't tell the story the polls are more accurate.

    Apparently according to paper's i've read recently it suggests alot of students are going to vote in, and the majority of brexiters are middle aged to pensioners.
    I'm personally a brexiter but apparently i'm in the minority. Also if we did vote to leave, who would be prime minister , david cameron or someone else?

    So doing a few straw poll's because i'm interested so see if that's true.
    I'm personally a remainer, but I would class it as absolutely correct that the majority of brexiters are older and the younger ones are remainers because that is statistically true.

    Remainers are counting on a high turnout in the young voters to vote remain otherwise, statistically, we will most likely leave the EU.

    I went to ask my sister who she was voting for and she said "REMAIN!" I went "brilliant!" And she then removed all my faith in humanity by following it up with

    "But I ripped up my polling card."

    Face palm.

    Oh and, if we left the EU, we have Dodgy Dave until 2020 and likely an independent Scotland which would greatly reduce odds of Labour getting into government again. It will be probably be followed up with Boris, God help us all.

    I don't understand how anybody could vote remain
    a vote for the EU is a vote against yourself and your own democracy
    why would you vote for something like that?
    the potential sacrifices of leaving this dreadful institution are nothing
    ultimately, this EU project is for the long term, and it's for the ever-closer-union deal.
    we will see an EU superstate with masedonia, sebia, montanegro and turkey
    AND we'll be bailing these countries out AND accepting all their citizens when they move to the UK
    you KNOW that a vote for remain is a vote for the EU superstate - because a vote now is a vote that we are trapped with for a VERY long time.
    and the only direction of the EU, given all the factors, is MORE INTEGRATION.
    we need to get the **** off of this sinking ship before it tumbles over the waterfall. the waterfall of euro-federalism, bail outs, debt crises and endless immigration
    our country WILL adjust to new european terms (if there are any) - and we will prosper outside, with all our potential as the 5th largest economy on the entire planet
    in fact, we will surpass the EU - the EU is stagnating, while we have all the potential to grow as a freely non-tariff giving nation
    why would the EU even tariff us when a tariff against us is a tariff against their own growth?! if it's "so the union doesn't fall apart" then is the glue of the EU economic misery?

    Maybe. But do you know how life works?
    Have you seen the bad people around you everyday? -The greedy people, the bullies, the jealous people, the scammers, etc.
    To survive against these people, you would need to struggle and move away from them and cut off relationships with them. Same with the EU.

    EHIC is a European thing, not an EU thing

    Most of the European things you love aren't actually EU things.

    An independent Scotland isn't at all likely until the oil price goes back up

    If i'm thinking of the same thing, the polling card isn't required to vote. It's just something they send to everyone registed to tell you your polling station etc. You just need to turn up and say "my name is x" and they give you the ballot papers.

    It's smoother with a polling card though because it makes you easier to find on their list given it has the relevant number on the card

    It's an EEA(plus Switzerland) benefit which we would no longer be a part of if we leave, we'd have to negotiate re-entry into it and accept free movement which comes as part and parcel. So no it's not an EU benefit but we'd still lose it if we leave the EU and no provision for it is agreed.

    Being blunt I find this very selfish, considering the industries that depend on a Brexit, and your willfulness to sacrifice a bit of your, and everyone else's, democracy.

    Oh do get a sense of perspective. Do you think the brexit lot are all selfless?

    The victim complex of the leave side just gets stronger.
