I think it's time to go.

Loads of reasons, but endless supply of cheap labour is the main one.

Call me cynical, if they get the vote they want first time, no more referenda.

If it goes the wrong way, just like Ireland, we'll be asked again.

I think on the first go the majority will vote to leave, on the rebound, we'll end up staying in.

Where do I stand? It's a secret ballot and I will keep the secret.

This poll is as secret a poll as you can get.

If I vote right now, you will know my vote.

I know what I will vote, but I will wait until it mixes in with the many.

Alex, will there be a rebound vote to follow this one? :shock:

I will always stand up to be counted.....a definite OUT.

It is now 40 + years on and we have people who are still not sure as to whether we should be in or out cannot, surely the fact that we are debating it tells you that all is not well in this corrupt organisation - no small wonder that we are in the mess that we are #-o.

Everyone appears to be concerned about the so called cheap labour,the E.U. is a business mans charter and businesses will always find away of employing cheap labour under the heading "There is a skill shortage so we have to bring labour from abroad"

This will not change whether we come out or stay in as the E.U. is controlled by unelected persons who are controlled by their paymasters big businesses,their only interest is protection of big businesses and have very little interest in the demands of joe public.

How can it be cheap labour? Everyone working here is entitled to the minimum wage.

How many taxi or PH drivers are entitled to the minimum wage?

Personally I don't know one local taxi or PH driver that it does apply too.

But for those entitled to the minimum wage it doesn't mean they should all be kept to it by an influx of cheap labour.
