    Just found a helpful article on Wikipedia about who is backing brexit and remaining in the EU.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endo...ferendum,_2016

    For me at least, there is not one redeeming person on the Out list other than possibly Gove. They are as varied from Giles Fraser to Peter Hitchens or from The Morning Star to the Daily Express. They are all a bunch of turds in my humble opinion. Whilst there are of course people on the pro EU side who I dislike e.g piers Mo than they are few in number.

    Usually i am quite open minded to both sides of debate and it's rare for me to react in this way. Anyone else feel the same or didosy people find people they liked on either side?

    How about Kate Hoey, Gisela Stuart, Frank Field and Graham Stringer - all Labour MPs. Or Jenny Jones, the Green Party member of the House of Lords. Or Jim Sillars, ex-SNP deputy leader. Paul Keetch, former Lib Dem MP. Even George Galloway, the RMT Union and countless others from all over the political spectrum.

    The Remain side is hardly a beacon of integrity, with Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson, Cameron and Gerry Adams onside.

    How about listening to the arguments on both sides and then coming to a decision, rather than making broad assumptions about the people on both sides.

    All a bunch of morons.

    The only one I have any respect for is Gove who was a disaster as education sec.

    On Tsr there's a few users I have respect for who advocate brexit, Notably Rakas but none of them think it's half as bad as it's made out to be by the likes of farage.

    I think percentage wise the number of likeable and sensible people strongly favours the IN side. For every moderate eurosceptic there's about a hundred nutters.

    No, you come to a decision by basing your existing ideological perspective on the issue and seeing how it fares.

    I've made generalisations above bit I think it's verifiable. As individuals in sure most of them are pleasant and reasonable people. As a group though, they're a bunch of psychopaths.

    Because apparently now I said that everyone on the IN side is wonderful. I bloody dislike Alex salmond for instance. That said proportionally there's far, far more people I agree with on IN than OUT. And not just on a political basis.

    Thats great but the point is you cant really align yourself to one side because both sides are mixed with differing people. To say one side has more good people than the other doesnt really explain the imbeciles in it

    I wonder if that comes down to the "Devil you know" style of thinking. Not everyone has considered the options as much as they have other topics, so the logical thing to do would be to vote to remain unless they see a reason to leave?
