I think Brexit is the wrong answer to the failure of the system to deliver decent jobs to ordinary Brits.

It is the wrong answer and thank f**k the remain have pulled ahead and the exchange rate is starting to get back to a decent level!

Amusing watching the Brexiteers whining about Government tactics, the exact same tactics were employed to successfully scare the Scots, guessing they thought the tactics were spiffing back then.

World War no less!

By the time of the vote I am guessing we could have the First Milky Way War just around the corner. I never trusted those Andromedáns.

Brits Out!

That should've been the slogan.

Jesus... havent really been following this... i thought it was a foregone conclusion, but it is starting to look like a genuine possibility.

From the few stories I have looked at, it looks like Cameron and Stay are under a serious bit of pressure? Is that a fair assessment?

Yep, it's a coin toss at the moment Joe. And the dilemma for the Stay campaign is that the more establishment types they wheel out to talk about the dangers of leaving, the more it paints the Leave guys as an insurgency - and as Trump and Bernie have proved already this year, plus Le Pen in France, insurgencies are in. I'd think it is going to be a narrow Stay win, narrow enough that the question isn't closed, a la Scotland.

Would be some craic if they left  ;D...tho there would have to be some sort of deal struck with Brussels both long and short term so I would say it would wouldnt actually work out that much different in reality.

Has the Glory of the British Empire, Rule Britannia and all that shite will be rolled out yet? That BS appeals to alot of ordinary English people so I would say there is a good chance youll be hearing it soon enough.

I think it is dangerous and might not be craic at all. They claim that a deal will be done not much different, but presumably they want some difference or what is the point of leaving ? Such a thing will be destabilising on this island, but may affect California less.

you would think it would, but the whole thing isn't quite rational.

Johnson is a buffoon, the stereotypical little Englander. Stay is still a strong favourite but I can see the gap narrowing and stay getting ultimately about 55-60% of the vote.

Yes he's a buffoon. That's why he's leading the Brexit side. He's a patsy, just like Trump in America. Boris is fully aware of what his role is.

Dont worry armaghniac I'm sure life will go on just like it did after partition, the fall of the British empire, the Iron Curtain and god knows what other political upheavals over the years.

I love the way politics can never actually deal with facts without a diversion of some kind... the EU, Hitler and Napolean where/are trying to do the something similar, politically at least.

However on the one hand its not wrong just because Hitler tried it, and not impossible just because it has never been done before.

On the other hand comparing it to Hitler does not mean that he saying the EU are gonna kill 6million Jews.

So what Im trying to say is his article is irrelvant to the debate, but sure this is politics and comparisons to the Nazis will either win people over or turn them off. Would say it will win a fair few of them over TBH.
