The vote is on the 23rd of June. Will the UK leave the EU, or won't they? What are the ramifications of either decision?

I've discussed it with the British posters and they seem to feel that the EU should join the UK rather than have the UK be a part of the EU.

I've heard so much from the anti-side that I'm really curious about the pro-side. Is the anti-mantra true? Does the pro-side have a list of complaints instead of a plan?*

It's a debate that I don't think people in the UK are taking seriously enough.

The leave campaign is full of some seriously horrible people and organisations, a list of which tipped me automatically to the other side, which puts me in de facto agreement with Prime Minister David Cameron, a soulless mannequin who grinds people into money. Given that the most outspoken campaigners for both sides are all basically evil monsters, this has put us into a state of confused ambivalence. Since it's all about foreigners and very complicated and British people hate complicated things and foreigners, most people who bother to vote on this will be doing so based on what the most trustworthy people in their lives are suggesting.

I tentatively predict that the TERRORISTS TEK UR JERBS vote will swing it by less than ten points. Scotland will narrowly vote to stay in and the Indy camp will try to force another referendum through.

I'll vote to stay in, due mainly to all the unsavoury swivel-eyed loons who have gathered under the Brexit banner purely in the hope of furthering their political careers.

Both sides of the argument have been spouting ridiculously precise figures about  - for example - how we will all be better off / worse off by 1500 pounds pa by the year 2030 if we stay in / leave the EU. This nonsense comes from politicians who don't know to the nearest 10 billion pounds what the country's finances will be like next Wednesday.

This has been an extremely unedifying contest. I don't know how some of the players will ever be able to work together again after the vote, whatever the outcome.

Here are our leave options, which suggests the whole thing is completely pointless anyway

latest polls say England is 50-50 and Scotland is 75% Remain, which could lead to Scotland keeping England in the EU against its will, which, if you pardon the expression, fucking lollercaust

I know this is serious discussion only and all, but I just suddenly got why they are called Brexit and I am so amused. Good thing I'm not British because that alone might have swayed me.

I like this one better.

My amusement is less at the inherent cleverness of the portmanteau but how long I have been hearing about it without realizing that it was one.

Also, nobody should vote for Brexit because it sounds like a Ricky Gervais bit.

Farmer races pigs to predict EU referendum vote.

Quote
The pigs of Pennywell Farm in Devon successfully predicted the outcome of Britain's national election last year and are again fighting it out on the track in some political racing that rival the "Remain" and "Leave" sides' own campaign battles.

I propose we cancel the vote and base any readjustment of our relationship with the rest of Europe on the results of pig racing.

Why stop there? In the good old days, everything was decided through pig racing.
