MikeB4: @Geektastic after many weeks of campaigning in the UK what is your gut feeling as to what way the vote will go. Many of my family in the UK are very unsure but believe the stay vote will prevail. Your feelings?
I'll be honest and say I think it will be close, but they will stay in.
In many ways the worst possible result is the fact that it will be close whichever way it goes, as it means that a huge percentage of the population will be unhappy, which is not a recipe for tranquility.
I think Cameron's so-called "renegotiation" was as much use as a chocolate fireguard and he got nothing substantive that can't be got out of later if the Commissariat in Brussels decide to forget they ever said it. I just think that most people will go with the status quo, quelled into submission by the Project Fear because all they really care about is what time the pubs are open, whether you can get cheap fags in France and whether their 2 weeks in Benidorm with Madge & Mel Harvey will still be nice and cheap.
One possible danger with a vote to stay in, will likely be further racial disharmony. The immigration issue has already become a racial/cultural/religious issue in Britain and I fear it will become worse and more prevalent for many years if they stay in the EU.
I can never fathom the logic of that, a mix of cultures etc is awesome.
