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

Just spotted this piece in the Guardian Newspaper

"Remain and reform is wishful thinking the left should vote leave.
- I hoped the EU would spread social democracy. Instead it has imposed austerity to pay for an unregulated financial system. Working-class people are right to vote against it."


For many undecided in this referendum it is, I believe, based on the lack of reform in the EU. A pity, eh? Imagine what it would be like if the EU was transparent, accountable and flexible. No brainer then I guess, we would all vote in.
Spot on.

The EU as a theoretical concept is more good than bad, and for most of its history it has been a force for the good. But the EU as it is today needs a very serious shock if it is to awaken from its complacency.
