Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

I do not need any kind of film to determine wher I put my x.
I just hope that people will not be swayed by the scaremongering that has been going on for what seems like forever.
Because if we stay in the EU those promises that David Cameron holds so close to his heart will not be worth a sheet of Bronco.
He will look like a patsy.....and we will have been sold down the river to be a satellite state of a European federation.

If you fear then perhaps their tactics are working?

Presumably this includes the Labour In For Britain campaign launched by a gentleman called Jeremy Corbyn?

It certainly does, even Browns been shouting remain, its all about self serve. in fact i reckon Labour are even worse than the torys on this issue, even those that want to shut the democratically elected leader are backing him on this.

It must be about self serve when a local M.P. stated that he would prefer to vote out but will be voting stay.
He hasn't yet explained why or to who's benefit it would be to vote against his 'better' judgement.

Now Less.....don't you be holding your breath waiting on that one because I really don't think he knows what he means himself......other than perhaps, he was told to do it by the party.
The party seems to have much more sway than the constituents.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

It seems that the Remainers are being bank rolled by the likes of Goldman Sachs et al......you know, those guys who made such a bl**dy mess of our banking system....they seem to think it better for us to stay in.
They would wouldn't they.
The EU seems to serve the 1% elite best and they consider themselves to be in that group....so it is only natural that they would support those in the 'Remain' group.
Eurostar(French owned) is also supporting 'remain'.....so the French people are contributing to the campaign for us to stay in.....well, they would wouldn't they. If we leave, they will have to stump up more in the way of contributions.

The same can be said of Corbyn, who has been a lifelong Eurosceptic, who voted out in 1975, who voted against the Lisbon and Maastricht Treaties and who has miraculously been converted to the Remain cause! Politicians, eh? Doncha just love 'em?

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

Well, just whiled away an hour or so watching "Brexit the movie", as a convinced outist the film merely reinforced my opinion. It's not an in your face study, more a thoughtful confirmation of the reasons why we should be voting to leave come the 23rd June.

Even the rabid remaniacs should have a watch, then seriously rethink what they consider to be the "Right way to go". Hopefully it may make a few waverers tilt in the direction of out, one can only hope so.

If you've a slack hour in your busy day, grab a brew of choice, sit down & have a watch.

Re: Referendum is a load of crap.!!

I am just getting a bit weary of all these big wigs being wheeled out to tell us how bad things will be if we take back our destiny.
President Obama(sending us to the back of the queue...when the negotiations for a trade treaty with the EU look to be doomed, so that's where we would be anyway).
Mark Carney...a Canadian governor of the Bank of England....he tells us that he foresees tough financial times ahead.....strange that he can forecast this whe he doesn't really know what effect leaving the EU will have - he can only guess.
Christine Lagarde(iMF and French) sees our prospects outside the EU as bad to very,very bad. Might she have an axe to grind to keep us tied in because that would benefit the French...has she got vested interests in the EU?
That is the question I ask myself each time one of these experts is wheeled out to give us what can only be assumptions....seeing as such a thing has never happened before, and as such is unknown territory.
I no longer want to be married to the Federal states of Europe...and there are more member states that would be equally glad to get rid of this bondage.
