    How long did it take you to think that up, and I hope nobody needs it explaining, even though you did so anyway

    10 year bund yeild dropped into negative territory earlier, the eurozone is feeling the burn just like we are with the FTSE crashing as the news breaks that risk averse people are being averse to risk

    UKIP surely the real winners in this, regardless of whether we stay or leave.

    How'd you work that out? If we remain (which we probably will, despite what polls say) they surely UKIP will fade away. They certainly won't be given nearly as much media time as they've had over the last 5 years. I'm looking forward to not having a UKIP panellist on Any Questions every sodding week.

    And if we leave, they will surely cease to exist entirely

    I dunno, regardless of the EU referendum they have cemented their place as the anti-immigration party and despite all the economic evidence there is clearly a very sizable portion of society that blames migrants for all our problems.

    Leaving will not make them go away overnight, they have the renegotiation period to keep the pressure on and redefine themselves, further if we leave but it is somehow blocked they surge.

    It is not just Rupert Murdoch who has undue influence over UK governments. HSBC managed to cajoule Gideon to change the tax regime in their favour.

    If we remain, the major parties will all come out in support of staying, bar UKIP, which will become the home of all the LEAVE members. UKIP will continue to blame the EU for the UK problems.

    If we leave, UKIPs pressure on the Conservatives won the referendum. The Tories will divide over the result so UKIP will be the one championing the new trade deals.

    Shame - it looks like most of the noes must have come from the petitioners then. That said, I struggle to see why this can be binding when less than 10% of the student body actually voted.

    Hello everyone. Just a brief visit as I am away.

    Visiting the concentration camp where one of my ancestors spent the last few weeks of his life in 1945 was a moving experience. Regardless of all our differences over Europe and the UK's role, I hope we are all united in never wanting a repeat of what the Nazis did, or anything similar.

    I don't doubt it... The tobacco lobby is powerful too and almost prevented plain packaging.
    such is the issue with democracy in a capitalist society.

    Which camp did you visit? I've been to a few and I find it hard to articulate the experience.

    The share price of companies =/= growth in the economy.

    That's not to mention that the predicted 5% in outperformance from DB stems from the FTSE 100 falling by 5% whilst European equities fall by 10% (i.e. we don't fall as badly). It doesn't support the case that share prices will rise nominally, only that UK shares will do less badly than the European shares in the event of Brexit.

    I.e. business as usual rather being at least as bad as Greece
