Smoking out the Brexout Mistruths and lack of Substance

I have noticed that the Brexouters have no rational arguments for their Cause. They only seem to attack the Stayers with, 'you are scaremongering' or it was paid for by the Taxpayer, blah blah blah. They have no facts or arguments as to how it will be beneficial to leave the EU. I ask everyone to ca...

Well Said Gus. we tremember how Europe was earlier in the 20th. Century. I am afraid after reading the Essay above my views still stand. A Brexout will lead to Economic at best, (total at worst), turmoil throughout Europe for 10 years. If the Uk goes then it is likely to be the start of the Break up...

In reality it would take years to unravel the UK's ties with Europe. And it would probably end up like Norway, Iceland or Switz...

a thought on....Passports, Driving Licences etc.

A Brexout will require the entire population of the UK to renew their Passports and Driving Licences. As we have all been issued with (European) Documents i can imagine that we will be required (at least by the rest of the EU) to replace our EU Documentation 'Forthwith'....the result = CHAOS and ext...

Reception is likely to start to deteriorate once more at the end of March until the Autumn when it should start to improve over the Winter once more.
This has been the Pattern for the past 2 - 3 years.
