Brexit

Someone said :
Walking through town today I noticed that underneath the vote leave posters someone had placed homemade posters saying `If you are a racist `.

I've seen that sentiment online quite a bit from the Remain Side. Its unfortunate and unlikely to change minds.

If the UK public vote for Brexit its largely down to the working class feeling that the politicians have abandoned them, and they'd be right.

I think I would draw the line at taking advice from deliquents scrawling on other peoples's property.

Don't you miss the Polls a certain ex member used to post?

Starting to look like a Stay win.

FTSE 100 rallies and pound heads for biggest daily rise in seven years on reduced Brexit fears

It will be fascinating to see the final result - I wouldn't be so sure about a Stay win. The polls are very often wrong.

I think the posters are a reaction to recent attacks on a muslim family in the town Thomas.
Their home was attacked on three seperate occasions.

Whatever the outcome of the referendum result, you can be sure that it will be very close indeed.

And yes, the ordinary voter feels a huge disconnect between the politicians, especially those at EU level. EU reform is so very badly needed. The EU needs to engage with the average person on the street. There is a huge sense of alienation and confusion.

And the immigration/refugee crisis needs to be tackled more effectively. Taking half of Syria into Europe in one go is simply not sustainable. Angela Merkel seems to have badly miscalculated with her "open door" approach.

How does the EU engage with the man on the street? There are already 100s of consultations on different laws and topics every year and the EU only proposes legislation, it can't enforce. Personally I think the man on the street needs to stop moaning and find out how they can get involved.

The polls might have swayed but the bookies have always stayed with the Remain. So that could tell you something of itself.
Theres a lot of private polling going on we dont know about as theres a huge opportunity to make money here for those in the know with the cash.

A lot of Brits telling me 'everybody I know is voting x'. Birds of a feather etc.

The man on the street is already very much involved.
People need to remember that by remaining in the EU we are protected by legislation that prevents discrimination.
Boris refered to them as a burden.
Think my vote is cast to remain.

It very much smells like Remain out there. The bookies have not waivered and financial markets have calmed. I expect secret expensive and comprehensive polls have been done.

I hope they caught all those Tory voters the polls didnt catch last time, otherwise there might be a nasty surprise.
