Most the guys I talked to say they don't like the uncertainty of leaving the EU , but They Think That if they didn't join in the first place they could have done better , stating the example of Switzerland

The idea of the common market was good, however the EU has become unrecognisable, and the future direction of ever closer political union, increased bureaucracy, increased budgets, a European army, supremacy of European law over national parliaments and courts no longer fits for the uk. We are and always have been an independent island, the 5th largest economy in the world with extensive worldwide ties. Let Europe go their own way, we can still be a friendly trading partner, I'm voting out, in fact I've already sent my postal vote!

Good evening Roulla, In answer to your question my postal vote is already in and I'm voting to stay in. I agree there is a fair amount of bureaucracy and it is very far from perfect, I also agree we did quite well before we joined, but things are very different now. Leaving aside such tihings as trade agreements there are other things the EU has got for us such as equal pay, a commitment to cleaner air, the often derided health and safety act etc.

At the end of the day I don't trust the government, of whatever colour, not to undo any of these if they felt it was in their interest. It also feels we would be pulling up the drawbridge to retreat into our own little castle, without any thought or care for others. In my opinion our place is in the EU, where at least we have a say. Outside, we would have no say yet many of the rules and regulations would inevitably affect us.

Thank you Aslemma for your reply, it's really interesting to hear other people views,especially from someone like yourself.
Me and my husband have been having constant discussion about the European Union and have watched many documentarys,,,, Boris Johnson says one thing and Cameron, Major and Blair say something else. Even Obama says that we should stay in. . I do however wish that they would place a points system so that they can control the boarders like they have in Australia, because so many things are unfair.
Yes, if they are refugees and need help, then by all means open the gate and let them in. But when you have people just entering and playing with the benefit system then that gets me. .. Whether we stay or exit the boarders will remain the same.
There are loads of pros and cons, they just have to be weighed.
Really appreciate your reply, thought the question got lost. :)

Another point to bear in mind is that if Cameron loses he will possibly step down (not a bad thing) but Boris will be in a stronger position to step into his shoes (an absolute disaster). My worst nightmare is Boris as our prime minister and Trump in charge in America - a buffoon and a dangerous lunatic!
