Stop talking from your gollos. The majority of immigrant workers are paid legitimate rates.

"It will be interesting to hear what Boris, the rather flamboyant mayor of London, will decide. My feeling is that he will come out supporting exit, a clever man with an eye on the top job."

Boris Johnson backs Brexit after 'agonisingly difficult' decision "
"The London mayor announced on Sunday that he will campaign for a leave vote after concluding that David Cameron’s deal will not deliver the reformed EU he promised."

It looks as if the vote on the 23rd of June will be very close. No one can possibly predict the outcome of the referendum, only a brave man will do so. Although Im in favour of the UK remaining in the EU I dare not predict the outcome, more so now that the charismatic London mayor has thrwon his considerable weight behind the " leave" campaign.

It will most certainly create quite a forceful campaign, the Conservative party is split down the middle. The question is will Cameron step down if the vote goes against him.

Good news for you actually, it means that you can adopt your favourite position "Sitting on the fence" whilst the campaign is in progress and jumping ship [in whichever direction] when it becomes clear whether the result be "Yes" or "No" so that you may join the winners.

As you state, it would take a "Brave Man" to make a prediction...... kinda leaves you out in that case doesn't it ?. :lol:

I think Cameron will use the fear of the unknown, with lurid warnings of calamity to deter people from voting to leave. Boris is a very clever man but comes over as a bit of a looney, so the 'IN's' will use ridicule to dilute his message ...... and the faithful sheep will fall for it! :roll:

The polls thus far show a slight lead for the " IN" vote, too close to call and of course there are 4 months before the referendum. It could go either way.

Switzerland enjoys the benefits of free trade agreements with the rest of the EU in exchange for agreeing to implement whole rafts of EU legislation into it's national laws, without having any say or input into the formation of those EU regulations. Switzerland also contributes to the EU budget, even though it is not a member of the EU.

http://ec.europa.eu/trade/policy/countr ... itzerland/

Switzerland's economic and trade relations with the EU are mainly governed through a series of bilateral agreements where Switzerland has agreed to take on certain aspects of EU legislation in exchange for accessing the EU's single market.


This idea that the UK could just leave the EU, yet maintain free trade with the EU and be free of interfering EU regulations made in Brussels is nonsense. What is also nonsense, imo, is the idea that ending the UK's free trade deals with the EU would hurt the EU as much as it would hurt the UK. Most of what the EU exports to the UK is governed by WTO agreements and rules. Much of what the UK exports to the EU - mainly services (banking, insurance, consultancy etc etc) are not governed by WTO agreements. So Germany and or France etc could for example place all sorts of trade barriers on UK banking and insurance companies ability to trade in those countries but the Uk would not be able to place restrictions on German cars or washing machines etc etc because these as covered by existing WTO agreements that are separate from and regardless of EU free market agreements.
