The UK votes in a referendum on whether to remain in the EU or leave on June 23rd 2016.
Like many, I am undecided.
The UK is not a world power with an empire - this went years ago.
The EU is a gravy train for bureaucrats and is an unelected quango in
the main creating so many laws that most small companies cannot keep up
with them. At the same time, WW3 starting in Europe has not
occurred and as long as there is an EU is unlikely. There is much wrong
with the EU, but much of it is a force for good. The EU needs to reform.
No I am still undecided.
What I do know is this is a very
important decision which will effect us for years to come. I think the
vote will be very close. Should we vote to leave, I think others will
follow too not many years down the line.
My gut says leave but my
logical self says stay in. The best outcome would be if the EU was a real force for good in the world. It puzzles me why so many countries seem to accept it as it is.
UPDATE 1400z: I am really fed up with NEGATIVE messages and spin.
