Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Due to the "EU free movement laws" being non negotiable, Cameron cannot simply block the EU migrant workers. His one hope of controlling migration & still remaining within the EU laws, is to make the UK less attractive to EU citizens, by reducing the free handouts, and to a great extent he has. I think Cameron did a grand job against the sabre rattling Europeans.

It is a pity he cannot convince his right wing Conservative party members to remain in the EU and work within the committees to improve it. Mostly everyone else wants to keep the present relationship (Shown by our own poll, at the beginning of this thread) Within the Conservative cabinet government the feelings are something like: leave 7 and remain 14.

To some extent this is not relevant as those are only 21 votes, and the voting on 23.6.2016 will result from the votes of millions of Brits.

For me the attraction for remaining in the EU, is it is better to be with the devil you know, as trying out new deals with a new devil.
