So, if the Referendum were down to just us handful of posters, voting on all of the UK's behalf, which way would it go?

Reply with either:

REMAIN

LEAVE

UNDECIDED

FUCKING SICK OF IT ALL - I AM NOT VOTING!

|Initially I thought "leave" so as not to be ruled by unelected bureaucrats etc etc. Then, reading comment in the press and listening to commentators on BBC TV I had second thoughts. Then reading pieces by MP's and listening to them on BBC TV my mind was made up "REMAIN" . . . I'd actually rather professional bureaucrats running the show than the bunch of mostly muddle-headed, lying, incompetent, turn-coat nincompoops we seem to have elected.

If the result is close, say 48% - 52% either way and about 25-30% of the electorate don't vote - the result will be meaningless. However, the politicians will simply tell us - "nothing to do with me mate, you lot voted for it"

This is surely abrogation of duty for whatever reason - most likely because the elected politicians lack the ability or capacity to negotiate with the EU and produce an up-to-date version of the club that once only had 8 members, and one that reflects the wishes of European people. Or was Cameron simply cowing to Farage's / BNP's pressure on immigration (which, from the EU looks unlikely to stop what ever the result is on Thursday). Opting for the Pontius Pilate approach on such an important issue was, I think, a HUGE misjudgement.

That's one pretty spot on prediction!

I think Cameron was cowing to the anti-Euro elements in his own party and thought the result would support him... he was wrong.

Cameron has already walked away from it. Has he resigned? If so why is he still at No.10 and who will cover for him as PM? Not much point waiting till the October arse-licking - the conference delegates will have daggers drawn for him and each other. Meanwhile Cameron's "ship" drifts without rudder in the storm heading for the next sandbank/reef.

The bigger point is who will cover in the interim and why are the Labour Party intent on making themselves look like the party to blame for this mess. They should be attacking the Tories, not each other with this Blairite attempted coup.

Meanwhile, Farage is walking about getting huge amounts of publicity, knowing that it will gain his party extra votes at the next election and having to take none of the responsibility for sorting this out. In fact, if the Tories mess it up, who will capitalise in the voting stakes... UKIP!

Unless the SNP start a new party to cover UK - but avoid calling themselves the British National Party.

Or call themselves that, just for furore that they will cause!
