    At 60 years old what better than to come onto a student forum and tell everyone what you voted for?

    What's the EU's position on immigration for those without jobs in the destination Member State?
    Which court enforces the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights?
    What's the difference between a Regulation and a Directive?

    Do you think the EU is more or less democratic than the UK?

    I wanted to take back control of the country including immigration, fishing (territorial waters) and I don't want my country controlled my unelected people in Brussels. Yes I would still vote lave if the referendum was today.

    Following your point regarding "unelected people", do you believe in the abolition of the House of Lords? How about the monarchy?

    (Moreover, European Parliament- those who "control" the member states- is a constitutionally democratic entity- especially if you overlook the sheer favouritism that was exhibited towards the UK!)

    I believe in an elected house of lords where we elect people to become lords and sit in the chamber. I love the queen and the royal family.

    Yes because the pound will eventually get stronger as the euro nears to collapse.

    Why?

    Don't get me wrong. Id oppose the abolition of the monarchy, as in my view its better than the alternative of a 'President' type, but in no way 'love' them.

    Given you obviously know next to nothing about the EU, why do you feel it appropriate to vote on the matter?

    How do you feel about the fact we have 5 million of our citizens living and/or working in the EU, who's economic and social prospects are in uncertainty .Also how did you feel about the 360 million a week to the EU misinformed message (actually around 180 through money we get back)Thanks
