    So all those places outside the EU that have had wars since 1945 are a special place where nukes don't work then?

    I suspect the cold war and other external threats have done more to stop another European war than the formation of the EU.

    Saying Europe stopped us going to war within western Europe is pretty laughable.

    And vote to keep pouring £11 billion a year into a failing, bureaucratic undemocratic institution that haven't had their accounts audited in 12 years?

    Whilst at the same time restricting our ability to set up trade agreements with the much bigger markets in the rest of the world?

    Sounds great!

    Par for the course? Did you mean golf course? You do know that it's an elite sport don't you? You're wrong!

    Well HMGov would certainly get a lot of practice, including renegotiating the 38 EU deal they already share and of course a big fuckoff negotiation with the EU itself. Then they can start up on the 8 major agreements the EU is still negotiating. Going to be a lot of trade negotiator jobs going if nothing else.

    Then, pop quiz everyone, what's the betting UK Gov would negotiate something even more awful than TTIP for the British people?

    I'd bet they'd just reintroduce de-facto slavery, rather than beating around the bush like they are doing now...

    Yeah, i can see that working out. One generation slaving for the next generation to come. You guys need to rebuild your shithole apartments in various cities.

    Raven Brrrrr!

    Nah, we just build shithole estates now, every house identical. Identical VW passat on every drive.

    Border checks between European countries would be a travesty.

    Europe's going backwards and that's to all our shame.

    In the office this morning were 4 of us, I said "Who is voting to leave the EU?", the other 3 all shouted "Me". Fantastic to hear :)

    I really wonder how it's going to go.

    Quebec has held two independence referendums and voted to stay with canada both times, scotland voted to stay, etc.
    This feels a bit different though - I don't think people get as passionate or as fearful and I think we could see a more complacent stay campaign.

    I don't see how leaving is beneficial to the economy in any way. Does Britain still even make anything to export? They'll be reliant on services, and most of the banking will probably up sticks and move to Frankfurt or Paris or something.
