    Had anyone changed their mind regarding the vote over the last week or so, and if so why?

    Yeah

    I realised I agree with neither side, and that they are both extremely annoyingly childish in their campaigns, very low on facts and figures, and more about rhetoric, synthetic outrage, and party politics

    Will you be voting at all tommorow? And to be honest i agree with you, i think both parties have simply been playing bat and ball with each other and most debates are centered about who can make up the best figures to scare the others and i think this whole campaign has done not much but fuel hatred in society.

    listening to the so-called arguments from both sides is like being touched up by an insecure jellyfish.

    the most sensible comments were those of Mr Soros.

    I used to think we should leave but then I read advice from the experts and found out it would be a stupid gamble with no guarantee of any improvement to the country. Leaving on the other hand would guarantee our economy takes a hit and it wont be as easy to go on holiday to Europe...

    This just isn't true, and it's a lazy way of taking no responsibility.

    Britain Stronger have been sharing a lot of facts, there's been a lot of economic research, a lot of discussion about the laws the EU gives us. If you haven't seen any facts it's because you haven't bothered looking.

    I didn't say there were no facts, I said the facts were few and far between, and often overlooked by the campaigns themselves. If we are lucky enough to hear some numbers, they are often manipulated, as is the way in politics.

    Until relatively recently, one of Remain's main tactics has been to scream "racist!" at Brexiters, and generate loads of synthetic outrage, meanwhile the Brexiters vastly overestimate a lone Britain's clout in the world, and ignore experts.

    Neither side is perfect, and to admit such isn't a 'lazy way of taking no responsibility', its showing a dislike of how politics is done in this country.

    Besides, more irresponsible than not making a decision, is rushing to make a decision with insufficient thought behind it
