WHERE I STAND

As the EU referendum is about to take place tomorrow and both sides are nervously dreading the outcome, those who want Out will certainly rejoice if they win, but inwardly they must have their doubts. They should certainly speculate on the reaction to Brexit worldwide, and consider what measures, if any, the EU will take in retaliation.

The war of words has so far proved more acrimonious than first envisaged and has so far proved to be a muddle between fact and fiction, for each side has been guilty of watering the lily to prove their dreamlike contention that what they preach is good for Britain, but omitting any tangible analysis to back their theories.

Whereas those who want to remain are familiar with what they know they will face if they win – at least they are not treading on foreign ground. They will have trouble at home unless they win with a large majority, which is not foreseen according to the polls. But their presence within the EU will afford them the chance to try to reform it, for they will possibly gain the clout they need from other members of the EU who are as disgruntled as Britain with the whiff of autocracy in running the conglomerate by civil servants who seem to be overbearing, and not democratic in the true sense of the word.

Despite these misgivings, I feel strongly that we should not be swayed by the made-up statistics of politicians whose sole motive is to grab power within the Conservative party, no matter what it takes, and leave us to bear the consequences as a nation. They have even involved Hitler in the melee of it all to frighten the life out of us.

Therefore, without further ado, I will certainly cast my vote to remain and pray that others will do the same.
