    It's time that this forum was less dopey - what the hell has happened to Opinion?

    This looks like being a heated debate / campaign. So what do you reckon on?

    Out. We will be far better off. Watch the pro EU propaganda of how many jobs will be lost go into overdrive.

    Stuart Rose just said it saves us £480 million per person per year. I haven't had my £480 million yet. It must be in the post.

    So I'm a stayer! I mean to say. I heard it on the wireless so it must be true.

    In. I feel more European than British, for a start.

    Opinion is now the domain of those who like being coarse and repulsive.

    Out, unless the government can be trusted to negotiate terms which are better for Britain.

    I need someone to summarise for my fluffy Personal brain.
    Preferably with pictures of rainbow kitten unicorns.

    Thank you Crowbob - someone who knows how opinion works without coming out in a cold sweat:=)

    In. Seriously.

    Or else UK law needs to reflect EU directives. My husband holds an Irish passport, we moved from Dublin to the UK (I was previously here as a student) - I do not need a visa or work permit under EU Law as the non-EEA spouse of an EU citizen. Simples. Except UK Immigration says that I do. But I don't (the Home Office finally admitted this in writing) . If my husband was a British national, I would need a spouse visa costing 600 pounds and his income would have to be over 22K a year - so the UK actually discriminates against a British citizen who marries an non-EU national.

    best wishes

    ps. I am aware that the reverse - the USA is very strict in relation to non-US spouses. That is why the kitten holds dual Irish and USA citizenship.

    If it was still a common market I would be for IN but now it is political and monetary union which I do not believe is in the people of GB best interests.
