United Kingdom to leave or to stay? Empty United Kingdom to leave or to stay?

As you know, United Kingdom is having a referendum about staying or leaving the EU. Post what you think about this here!

Why people vote to leave

Some may believe Britain is being held back by the EU, which they say imposes too many rules on business and charges billions of pounds a year in membership fees for little in return. They also want Britain to take back full control of its borders and reduce the number of people coming here to live and/or work. One of the main principles of EU membership is "free movement", which means you don't need to get a visa to go and live in another EU country. They also object to the idea of "ever closer union" and what they see as moves towards the creation of a "United States of Europe".

Why people vote to stay

Those campaigning for Britain to stay in the EU say it gets a big boost from membership - it makes selling things to other EU countries easier and, they argue, the flow of immigrants, most of whom are young and keen to work, fuels economic growth and helps pay for public services. They also believe Britain's status in the world would be damaged by leaving and that we are more secure as part of the 28 nation club, rather than going it alone.

Thank you,

Awesome debate for politically spoken people

- I pass on influencing my opinion, i think if it isn't broken don't try and fix it.

Thanks, Chaps07
