Gonna vote out.
EU can go 2 hell
Young voters should vote out and stop being brainwashed by corporate education. Less supply of workers = more jobs for you young Brits.
You really think staying in the EU justifies a 70 to 1 application rate for graduate jobs? ermmmmmmm
Does the EU create 70 more jobs per person? ermmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Protect your future today. This is from a guy with a masters in economics.
Even a small 50p increase in minimum wage = thousands more will come to the UK this year. Hence why we haven't had any wage increases for 20 odd years whilst everything else has got more expensive i.e education, housing etc
Interesting new polls.. not sure how im going to vote yet as a 'young person' - but the poll looks like a resounding victory for IN.
Sure out is ahead, but my personal opinion is that for a referendum to swing towards the 'change' option it needs a much more pronounced margin.
We have seen it in a number of elections/referendums, that the more radical and different option always has more vocal supporters, and as such does disproportionately well in the polls..
Thats until the actual election when all of the silent status-quo voters, who did not care enough to make noise beforehand, come out of their shell and vote.
Until I see leave hitting 60/65+% I wont consider any possibility of them winning.
I would vote if there were votes at 16... How come scottish teens got to vote on independence but british teens can't vote on the eu? seems inconsistent to me.
The overall poll is 43% Leave, 39% Remain, 18% undecided. More undecideds amongst the young voters as well.
Overall, EU membership is a big net benefit to the UK. The immigration scare tactics are just that - scare tactics. The majority of EU immigrants into the UK are hard working people who boost our tax revenues and GDP, creating an overall bigger economy with more jobs for all of us.
The Euro is in trouble and the EU economy on the continent is troubled, but neither are particularly influenced by us staying in our out.
We should be moving towards a world free of the curse of nation states and their 18th and 19th century warmongering baggage and moving towards what we truly need - global cooperative action and organisation at every level. The EU isn't perfect of course, but it is an attempt to do that. We should stop whining and being pitiful and seek to modernise and improve it. We should stop listening to reactionaries like Nigel Farage and Ian Duncan Smith and their fellow travellers and liars like Boris who pretend to support them for private reasons. We should be moving forwards, not back to the 1950s.
Scepticism is a very healthy frame of mind. Ironically, the euroceptics are among the least skeptical people you will ever meet.
They seem to be under the impression that:
The EU will give us everything we want upon leaving (They make the SNP's claims sound wholly believable)
The (Modern) nation state is the end point of civilization.
We'll be safer from global terrorism
The UK government will automatically provide for brexit shortfall subsidies
The EU will fail (They've been saying this from Day one, and its only gotten stronger)
We will get trade deals that will be better and faster than anything now (And if those foreign countries say differently (They all do) its because theyre all evil liars who hate our country... ad infinitum
In recent weeks the Pro-Brexit camp have accused the pro-europe tories such as Cameron, Osbourne and Hunt of 'starving the NHS', and not caring about people who don't vote tory.
They are correct of course, yet they're just as bad. Although it is amusing watching the tories argue amongst themselves about which lot of them are worse for the NHS.
Mind you, the way the Brexit campaign jumped on the tragedy in Belgium to support their view and tie it to the EU was pretty disgusting and shameful, but no tactics seem too dirty for them
I certainly hope we stay in, but that Cameron and Osborne get a bloody nose in the process.
