It is if they want to keep their jobs.

If they lose, lots of them will be out of a job anyway.

The Leave campaign I think is a lot stronger than the remain.

I still think a lot will bottle it when it comes to it.

Schauble German finance minister says uk can't join eea after brexit vote , in is in and out is out , he says

So that's the uk economy fucked , with their debt , when the ratings agencies drop their ratings , they won't be able to pay their debts ,
It won't be immigration they'll be talking about then , it's emigration .

Interestingly France hasn't signed the Vienna convention so if there is a brexit vote , U.K. Residents there will immediately lose all their Eu citizens rights .


Interestingly

May or may not.
France has a long tradition of "acquired rights", which means that people who did benefit from it may retain it, at least fora while.

By the way, what do you mean by "UK Residents there"?
French citizens residing in the UK?
UK Citizens residing in France?
UK Residents (tax residents? ordinary residents?) living in France but not "residing" in France for tax purposes?

Whatever fucking Gobshite in the remain campaign sent Bob Geldof in a boat shouting and making v signs should be sacked.

It wasn't the worlds fifth largest economy before it joined the Eu!
It's only the worlds fifth richest economy because of free movement of workers from the eu and because it's part of the worlds biggest open market .

Btw why aren't there any old expats where you are ?
Don't the uae and all those countries welcome you with no taxes and free medical care until you reach 60 and then no more free health care and tax tax tax , that's why you see no expats in Dubai over 60

That will be the fate of the U.K. Retirees all over the eu

When workers who contribute to the economy get replaced by retirees who don't , guess what place the economy will fall to?
Huge debt
Currency failing
Rating dropping
Reduced output because workers leave
Greater drain on resources because retirees return
If you wanted to destroy an economy you couldn't plan it any better

There will be short term damage no doubt until the dust settles. German bonds at 10 yr low. European stocks also tumbling. Yen soaring.

I think Jo Cox's assassination will swing the Brexit referendum to the remain side.

Uk debt is huge , which is why they are practising massive austerity there ,
its a services economy , there is no indigenous manufacturing ,
the economy there is not that good
there's a nice property bubble
they have a good rating so they can pay their debt
but
you take away access to the single market
the services industry won't be able to perform in the eu
the ratings agency have said they will downgrade
the debt will be more expensive
there won't be any deal because schaublr wants to prove his point

Even easyjet admitted they won't be able to fly into eu airports
they hope to transfer their aircraft to a Swiss subsidiary ? If that works

From 23 to the 24 what you've grown to accept as normal will just be gone.

I'm not sure if it will.

I really do hope they stay

If Brexit comes to pass we wont even have to look to the headline economic figures to see an impact, well just have to look to the shops closing in Dundalk and Newry, or watch the customs posts up north check that the cattle farmers down south have paid their tariffs before moving their cattle to the abattoir half a mile up the road.

33,000 workers cross the Irish land border every day to and the Dublin-London air route is one of the busiest in the world. An isolationist Tory UK, where the only political challenge is between the hard right of Osbourne and the harder right of Boris, will devastate pay, conditions and rights in the workplace. It will also see communities pitted against each other and see vast holes being cut in the safety nets of the welfare state and public services. Privatised formerly public services will be ripe for Russian and Chinese takeovers.

Worryingly the racist discourse of the countrys full or immigrants are to blame for hospital waiting lists (and not somehow five years of tory cuts) has been well and truly legitimised by the Brexiteers through their campaign and this will get worse with Brexit.

I really thought the Brexit vote would be close but that voters would opt to remain in the UK. Now the most recent polls are suggesting most will vote to leave the EU. This is very worrying. A Brexit will be very bad for Britain. Even London, that financial powerhouse, could be negatively affected.

And the effects of a Brexit on Ireland could be disastrous. It will be nail biting time next week.
