This is mainly for all the English lads and ladetts, what do you think about brexit now that the vote is only days away.

We hear misinformation here in Australia so just wanted to hear from the horses mouth what is really happening in the UK.

You rascist thing you !  Don't you want the opinions of those of us from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland ?

 

I will be voting to stay in.

 

Australia is not the only country getting large quantities of misinformation, you could probably fill a super tanker with the misinformation floating around in the UK and fly a fleet of balloons with the hot air available.

I voted in the previous referendum not to join the EEC. This was a free trade area, which has now turned into a "united states of europe"  I lost and we were in. I now am voting to get out. I have several reasons. 1 The accounts of the EU have not been signed off for over 20 years. Nobody seems to know where the money is. 2 I would rather be governed by the crooks in our parliament rather than the crooks in europe. 3 I am a xenophobe. 4 That does not apply to the commonwealth.

Yes trade agreement hey!.

We have the Trans Pacific PartnerShip or as some call it TPP that will destroy jobs for australians and also a china free trade agreement which is estimated to give us 0.001% over the next 30 years LOL.

But it also allows the chinese to come and bring their own workers with their own saftey as well.

Typical liberals claim it a business success and the economy will boost jobs and growth (New 3 word slogan for us ozzies or as some say Jobsen Grothe) but everyone with half a brain can see its just allowing multi nationals to sue our government when things dont work out.

Politicians exaggerating and unsing spin - whatever next!

 

Leaving the EU would cause much uncertainty.  Also, it seems the "Bremain" people have exaggerated less, though fear has been the biggest part of their campaign, but that's Cameron and Osborne for you.

 

I will be, (in 1-2 hours) voting to stay in.

We have voted to leave the EU.  This may mean the rise of Boris Johnson.

I'm eager to see the reaction from the EU itself. Will they turn inward for a little self reflection, and wonder if maybe they should conduct themselves differently in the future? Or will they just point fingers at everyone else and blame them instead?
To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

The vote is done, England is leaving the EU.  David Cameron resigned this morning.  It will be interesting to see how the EU resolves this, it could take years.  


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I guess Brit's are now going to need passports again to get into Europe.

 

Who else thinks Boris Johnson looks like Donald Trump.

Personally I get a bit fed up with the continual mis-identificaton of England with the UK (United Kingdom)

 

The United Kingdom as a whole voted 52 % in favour of leaving

England voted, and I can only find regional figures, from 40% to 59% in favour of leaving,

Wales voted 52.5% in favour of leaving,

Northern Ireland voted 44% in favour of leaving,

Scotland voted 38% in favour of leaving

Gibralter - which I admit I didn't know had a vote - voted 4% in faour of leaving.  (source - BBC web-site)

 

It is all a bit ironic that two years ago one of the factors that swayed voters in the Scottish Independence referendum was the widely made claim that voting to stay in the Union was the only way to guarrantee continued membership of the EU for Scotland.

 

As for the similarity between Trump and Johnson, it had already been noted. And to add an international note, Donald Trump was in Scotland today - opening the refurbished Turnberry golf resort - and stated his belief that the referendum result 'was a great thing'. Still, what do I know ?  I have voted in four referendums and been on the losing side in three of them.

 

Further, it is a good thing that my wife forbids bricks in the house. Every time I see Johnson on TV I get this almost irresistable urge to throw a brick at it. I could say more, but then I would have to move this topic to the SpeakEasy !

@ Animal #13  - Good one !

 

The tragedy of it is that no one, least of all the Leave camp, expected the result that we got - so nobody has any plans for what to do now. We are currently being governed by a bunch of headless chickens.
