    It goes deeper than that. Watch Brexit The Movie...

    Would we vote to join the European Union? With all the financial crises and the migration crisis? The failing euro and slew in growth is another factor.

    David Cameron has some hand(s) up his a** since he changed his tune (in November 2015, he said that the UK would be fine outside the EU, now he's all pro remain!?!?)

    The way the EU works is similar to elitism and the current government will be able to do what the f*** they like and be absolutely unaccountable for it as they are able to lay the blame onto the EU and its regulations. The UKs voice is lost in the wind when it comes to policy making (tampon tax) and so remaining will not change a single thing!!! The EU will continue to drag us all into the shitpit that itself has created

    Travel to Europe may or may not require a visa, as many other countries such as Around 174 other countries can travel around in Europe visa free! Even if we did need a visa, who cares? It's a little price to pay, when you consider what's ahead of us in the 'Union'

    I'm suspicious about it all as well but his comments in the past are consistent to his current attitudes.

    You need to broaden your exposure to history, Britain caused far more havoc than the 3rd Reich ever did. Most recently in the Bangladesh trade wars - look up how many people died.
    Then read up on the Boer war, Clive of India and his atrocities. History is littered with the British ability to ruin - even on your own territory. Scotland was decimated and the people murdered whether they had been involved or not. So stop being stupid about the EU - and start reading facts not tabloids . Germany does not control the EU.
    From Falkirk, the Jacobites marched north to occupy Inverness. The English army was reorganized under King George II’s (1683–1760) son the duke of Cumberland (1721–65) (William Augustus), who skillfully deployed his 10,000 men, with artillery, at Culloden Moor on April 16, 1746. Thus positioned, he allowed the Highlanders to do what had served them so well in the past—charge— only, this time, the English defenses were so well prepared that each charge proved costly to the Jacobites, reducing their already outnumbered forces. Finally, Cumberland’s cavalry charged and swept all before them. The Scots ran, only to be cut down. Cumberland, determined to put an end to the rebellion, had ordered that no quarter be given, and thus even the wounded were slain. Most of the Jacobite force at Culloden was killed, whereas Cumberland— dubbed “the Butcher”—lost no more than 300 men. With this battle, “the Forty-Five” ended, but Bonnie Prince Charlie escaped. He hid in the Highlands until he eventually returned to France, where he died, a permanent exile.

    Maybe Britain should have joined in the beginning instead of trying to form the EEA, and then failing. Britain's glory days and colonialism are long gone. As a nation of shopkeepers you should consider how best to keep your customers - in this case the members of the EU. You have allowed your engineers to fall by the wayside, manufacturing has moved to the old 'Eastern block' , textiles to China, IT and telephone systems to India. So what have you got to offer? Fashion ideas? University research will no longer be funded by the EU, you have very little (and very expensive) oil, electricity bought from France , most of the fibre optic cables owned by China and a banking system that is full of Russian Oligarchs.
    What will you be trading in the future? Past glory? The kudos from a war fought 71 years ago? Colonies like Zimbabwe and Nigeria to back up the old 'mother country'?
    Face facts, the uk might be a largish economy, but it is still just a small island that cannot sustain it's people without trade.

    I would like to say that the idea of staying in to change the EU is the biggest piece of bull fecal that the stay campaign is spouting. We can't change a damn thing. The people we elect to go to the EU on our behalf have less power than the house of lords when it comes to influencing rules and laws that the EU want to pass.

    On top of this, none of the people that are elected to go and interact with the EU can propose any kind of legislation to be made or revoked, and can only discuss what the EU has put on their plates, served from the kitchen of the EU commission. A commission that only has appointed positions with no public accountability in place, due to its lack of a democratic process.

    Now just to give you an idea on just how bad this is. Since the late 1980's, every time we have voted against a peace of EU legislation, we have lost the vote... Think about that for a second. If we think that we can influence the EU with that kind of track record, and this is a legitimately held belief then we are frankly insane.
