    Noone should ever rely on the EHIC card for treatment - you'd be amazed how much it does NOT cover. You should always get travel insurance like you would for any other country. My friend stupidly relied on his EHIC card so when he got hit by a car he got his leg plastered - but the airline said he couldnt travel with the plaster - so he either had to get a different plaster put on for travel, plus a doctors certificate (neither of which were cheap or paid for by EHIC) or stay in the country at his own expense until he was better. The person he was with in the accident had travel insurance and his insurance company paid for him to have a bed on a plane with an accompanying doctor. Always worth taking out the travel insurance.

    And its a bit scary you would consider staying 'in' on the basis of the EHIC card, or having to get Visas for European travel - surely this debate should be bigger than this?
    I was picking one thing, its obviously not the only reason I think we should stay in the EU.

    Why facepalm? She's right? The Tories are definitely the more attractive party to business owners.
    "Owning a couple of properties" is not a business because it doesn't produce anything (i.e. it's rentiership; all that happens in this business is that money is transferred from the tenant to the landlord). Tories are the party of unearned income and of private landlords, people who want to use the state-backed notion of property ownership, as well as the government-backed policy of not building any houses, to take an assured percentage of working people's money in perpetuity while not doing any work themselves.

    Small business owners generally prefer Labour governments because such businesses tend to serve low-income people and Labour ensure those people have a high enough income that they can consume.

    No, the widest read newspapers are unionist but Europhobic. So they decided the No result in the Scottish referendum but if they are allowed to decide the result of the Brexit referendum it will be Out.

    If we stay it is down to scaremongering tactics used by those with the most power to influence voters.

    The leave campaign has been a mess too, it is only this week that they have started making a real effort.

    People keep harping on about how the leave campaign is all about immigration but if immigration lovers had any sense they'd be voting Brexit because it's the only way we can have a fair immigration policy that doesn't favour EU members regardless of what they have to offer. Wouldn't you rather have a skilled worker from the US or Asia than a benefit migrant from eastern Europe? Right now the benefit migrant has more immigration rights.

    Scotland didnt leave the UK. the same will happen in this referendum LOL
    Which is precisely why the UK will leave. The majority of voters are not actually as easily led as the political elite and mainstream media outlets like to believe.

    The margin is much finer for this referendum.

    The good thing about Brexit is that leaving gives the Scots another attempt in a couple of years, which means by extension more Scots will be voting out

    Obviously correct given that all political establishments want to remain, the point is how strong will the brexit vote be.

    Picking fruit never paid good wages. But someone has to do it. My gran used to say "Beggars can't be choosers." But then she didn't take into account the benefit system.

    Which is why, for many generations, migrant workers have always done this sort of work. They tend to come here for the season and then go home. Seasonal migration is as old as the hills. It isnt a result of being in the EU, and it isnt just within the EU. Think of the people working as fruit/veg pickers in Australia on a gap year for instance.
