I'm voting stay in because UK needs to take a fair share of asylum seekers rather than leaving everyone to shoulder the burden.

Troll much?

The EU have no say in this just as the English had no say in whether Scotland stayed in the union.

What asylum seekers? They are not asylum seekers, they are economic migrants.

You can either do it by residency in which case the Europeans here already get the vote or you can do it by birth in which case the Brits in Europe get the vote.

Pick one.

Actually (unless I am out of date) Brits abroad can, in some cases, vote in the UK elections AND EU citizens resident in the UK can also vote?

Why? They pay taxes here, they have a right to take part. The Scots allowed English people living in Scotland to vote in the independence referendum.

There are two separate (realistic) franchises you can use--

1. The UK Parliament franchise: Resident British, Irish and Commonwealth citizens, including British citizens overseas who were resident in the UK within the last 14 years.

2. The local government franchise: Used for elections to local authorities, the devolved assemblies and for the recent referendum in Scotland. This includes resident British, Irish and Commonwealth citizens - and resident European citizens too. It excludes British overseas voters.

Both are legitimate, I suppose. Option 2 would probably favour a vote to stay in though.

Of all the many reasons to vote to stay in the EU, this isn't one of them. Why is it our responsibility?

If the fake Conservative even gives a referendum not just a manufactured smoke screen of renegotiation used as an excuse not to give one then the referendum will be rigged from the start... the media will do that.

You mean the pro-EU media like the Telegraph, the Sun, and the Mail, the pro-EU media that constantly demands a referendum, that pro-EU media that publishes all sorts of scare stories about the horrible stuff the EU is doing to Britain?

That media?

There is quite alot going for there to be a referendum, comments I've made in the referendum topic which I aim not to repeat, but the fact that 50/73 MEPs we voted for represent the UK in the European Parliament seeking reform/exist but ultimately a referendum, another being the businesses that petitioned all parties to offer an in/out referendum and the point gladders makes with the media promoting a referendum. I am in total agreement with one of the questions in the Question Time debate asked to Ed Miliband, for 'what about our view' or words to that effect, that the public's view is not good enough.

Any rigging of a referendum or absence of a referendum will have a severe impact on Conservatives who do not deliver on this pledge, just like Nick Clegg on tuition fees, so David Cameron would be treading on very thin ice in this matter, being more serious being one of the two major parties.
