    I am voting LEAVE

    It is time for Britain to act like the superpower it really is rather than being controlled by the European Parliament. We should implement laws which we have tailored for ourselves rather than them being created by people who haven't stepped onto British soil in years.
    If you think leaving is all it would take for Britain to become a superpower, my friend, you are mistaken.

    We would be a lot weaker. Just look at how the British pound is doing. There have been heads of banks who have explicitly said that if the UK leaves, the bank will leave.

    Idk how you think we're gonna be a superpower if we don't even have any money

    I believe we already are a Superpower as we have been for decades... The pound may not be doing great but look at the decline in the value of the Euro. It isn't exactly on the upwards increase either.

    There's a difference between someone saying they are going to do something e,g, the bank leaving if we leave the EU and actually going through with it.

    That's all I ever hear from the Leave campaign.....

    Doubting everybody but themselves, and furthering their agenda using hypothetical numbers and scenarios.

    The final ten days, and we're pulling ahead.
    Don't give up yet, do not grow complacent.
    The remain campaign is indeed in a rout, but we must keep pressing.
    Keep canvassing, leafleting, organising voting parties.

    We can still do this, we can still save Britain.

    England expects every man will do his duty.

    The UK hasn't been an economic superpower since the days of Empire. We would be deluded to think that those days will return just by leaving a real economic superpower.



    And if you mean who has the biggest nukes...


    I doubt even BoJo would want to spend the multi-billions it would cost to catch the real superpowers.

    ... because the Leave campaign can't predict what's going to happen. It's easier for Remain because they're arguing for the status quo, although both camps are guilty of scaremongering.

    I wish they'd stop going on about immigration though. That's not the only issue.

    I'm so unsure... And because I'm so unsure I'm not sure I should be voting because it isn't necessarily a true vote. If everyone were in the same situation and 'guessing', then the country might be leaving or staying halfheartedly and voters would be changing their mind after when it's too late. I

    As much as I feel it's my duty as a voter to contribute to the decision, I don't want to do so unless I'm sure.

    So stuck!

    I'm pretty sure that if the UK vote to remain, there is enough ill-feeling and threat of leaving by other nations, to help force reform.

    Fundamentally, if that reform doesn't happen, then I'm pretty sure in 10-15 years time then the UK public would be entirely fed up, or you'd hope the national government declares that it itself is fed up, or the Uk public vote in a Eurosceptic government, when we can leave then.

    I have zero appetite for leaving when the economies of UK and Europe are so fragile.

    This might help, and I'll try to be neutral, even though I am for Remain. From your personal perspective, I suspect most EU regulations benefit you, whether its safety protection or whatever. So this talk of democracy is largely irrelevant to most consumers in my opinion. So it can almost boil down to two things:

    1. Your stance on EU immigration and to what extent you believe it can be rectified if we leave.

    2. Your stance on the relative importance of the economy (unemployment, investment, credit availability, exchange rate etc.), against immigration. There is now hard evidence (it's already happening) that our economy will be hit, perhaps for 1-2 years, in the short-term. Longer-term is anyone's guess.

    So perhaps weigh up those two points. If you care largely about the need to control the #s of people we have from the EU and think that we can eventually do that from Leaving, and place a high importance on that vs. the economy, then perhaps Leave is your choice. if you are not sternly against immigration, or disbelieve the promises that it can be cut significantly enough should we leave, or you weigh economic strength over the next, say, two years more heavily, then perhaps you'd prefer Remain.

    Remain in. Putin and ISIS are hoping we will leave.
    Ridicolous. Maybe they want the UK to stay in the EU so they can get in easily and the UK loses its independence in favour of the 'peaceful' EU that wouldn't attack them.

    Thanks Mystic Meg.

    So much completely unfounded speculation being used to make this decision.
    It's not speculation. It's proved by history,the UE wants to get larger. Remain uses only speculation
