EU Referendum - 23rd June 2016 - guess I'm out in 2020

Discussion in 'Personal' started by sabrinakat, Feb 20, 2016.

    How will this work in reality? The Home Office already makes it difficult for us....here's the BBC's handy guide:

    Some limits on free movement
    - Denying automatic free movement rights to nationals of a country outside the EU who marry an EU national, as part of measures to tackle "sham" marriages. There are also new powers to exclude people believed to be a security risk - even if they have no previous convictions.

    We're away on the 23rd. Should we apply to our local district council for a postal vote as we would for a General Election. I'll phone them next week but wondered if any of you knew.

    That's what I did when I was away for the last general election and I assume a referendum would be the same.

    The OP assumes the result is a given.

    Yep - I hope the British will show common sense and stay in, but I think another summer of migration across Europe will colour the debate and potentially lead to a 'no'.:(

    If common sense means giving our country away, then yes. If we vote 'in' and I feel sure we will, even if the entire population of the UK voted 'out' (wink, wink), I'll be off to the USA to seek asylum: asylum from the EU! The yanks might not know where Italy is, and might think the UK shares borders with Iraq, but even that could not match the stupidity of staying 'in'.

    So, which state do you think I should consider living in?

    So do the bookmakers ;)
    Though in a different way

    Bookmakers never have an opinion but tend to reflect public opinion.

    If they don' t come to the UK, it is not part of the debate.

    Not so sure about that... many hundreds of thousands have entered Europe in 2015 heading mostly for Germany... and you can't get our media to shut up about it.
  14. FritzGrade

    FritzGrade Senior commenter

    If they are in Germany not our problem. Their burden created by Merkel.

    Aye for sure... but hasn't stopped it being part of the discussion... quite a sizable chunk.

    I've started preparing Mrs FF (an EU citizen) for her deportation if 'Out' should win...:D
