    Who dictate to us what to do.
    What? EU law is passed or rejected by EU Parliament, which British MEPs (who you vote for) make up 10% of. Nobody's been dictating anything.

    Russia, Norway and USA have already said they will trade with us once we officially leave the EU.
    Actually, the US confirmed after the Brexit vote that we will be lower priority for a trade deal. They're already negotiating a big trade deal with the EU, so we'll have to wait for that to get sorted out at least.

    We will have more control of our borders from those who wish to take advantage of our welfare systems.
    Nobody's taking advantage of our welfare systems though. EU immigrants are 40% less likely to claim welfare than British people, and make a net contribution to our economy of 30%. The only people taking advantage are British natives.

    Jobs will go up as we'll need more people to work on border force.
    What do you plan to pay them with?

    The NHS and Education system will get the money we would send to the EU.
    Oh dear, you haven't been keeping up have you? Farage admitted the morning after the EU that a) the figure for how much we give to the EU was a lie and b) it's probably not going to the NHS or the education system.

    But none of that matters, because we aren't actually saving any money. The pound is at its lowest in 3-4 decades, businesses are stopping hiring (some even making redundancies), the value of British business are plummeting before we've even left, and financial technology - the UK's only industry of any significance - can't survive outside of the EU.

    Many say the leave camp should of had a plan for if we leave, but the remain campaigners should of been prepared for if we all decided to leave.
    Nope. You make a mess, you clean it up. If you wanted a plan in place, maybe you should have considered whether there was one before voting.

    Simpletons? Name 20 of the people in charge of the EU who get paid ten times more than our own Prime Minister. Who dictate to us what to do.

    Yes,remain should have prepared to,protect their country, but they never cared about their country, since eu wealth never tricked down to the masses. Rules and regulations are fine if you profit somehow, but more didn't and have nothing to lose.
    No deals can even be considered util the end of the two year period and most us co lanes deal with the U.K. because it is gateway to Europe.

    CaMoron was a single parent and the other parties just visiting aunties. He was in charge of leave or remain provisions for immediately after the vote to prevent this chaos. This is Choas now because he was too busy negotiating his own mortgage ttl ensure the status of EU citizenship for British nationals, who desire such status, during the period of negotiation following the triggering of Lisbon: Article 50.

    Sorry what? Are you talking about the billions that the EU invested in the poorest parts of the country?

    Rules and regulations are fine if you profit somehow
    Maybe you can explain how the mysterious elites profited from the rules guaranteeing you a right to regular breaks and paid holidays, a month-long refund period on everything you buy, and placing more burden on businesses to ensure that what they sell you is safe and working than anywhere else in the world. Please enlighten me.

    The problems with EU regulations can be found in the EU common fisheries and agricultural policies to name but a few.

    A poll of 1,100 TSRians back in autumn showed that the majority of you want to remain in the EU: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3621353

    Does that still ring true?

    How are you going to vote? Tick your choice in the poll!

    Ummm, so you're signing petitions multiple times hoping all signatures get counted and that somehow will change policy?

    To be honest, leaving the EU makes more sense than staying in, we spend soo much for just staying the EU alone, there more benefits for leaving than staying in :yep:
    I think staying in makes more sense, better the devil you know. Even if we spend money on the EU, its not for no reason. The EU has ensured our economy stays strong and we can trade with other countries in Europe with less cost to us. Reliable sources such as the International Monetary Fund have predicted that the economy will crash if we leave - and already we've had a decrease in the value of the pound compared to the dollar. It is now at its lowest level in 68 years! That's more worrying than anything I would be worried about before we had the vote - it has only been a couple of months! If we stay it ensures our freedom of movement - it means we can live, work, go on holiday anywhere we want in the EU countries. It means the other countries in the EU will support us if we get into a war and we will have an alliance with them. It's good for the little people low down because more jobs have been generated, and workers are protected. I could say more but I'll leave this here for now.

    You don't need to petition Parliament, for the next couple of years at least you simply move to another EU state.

    We aren't American, the word is emigrate, but yes, that is exactly how you get to keep your EU citizenship, by making sure you don't leave the EU.
