    Does anyone else feel the same?

    Yes (and I'm basically pretty interested in politics!)

    4 months run in is far too long...

    Certainly tired of the propaganda from big business and top leaders desperate to keep the status quo.

    Media does seem obsessed with reporting every utterance at the cost of more important issues... or tying everything into the referendum issue.

    Or do you mean threads on here? Maybe there should be one EU thread? Or is that asking too much?

    Yes. I'm keen on proper debate and information but it's all just point scoring and soundbites.

    Yes and I just want a simple statement of the facts for staying or for leaving. Not wrapped up in all this flummery. A straightforward list of pros and cons with no bias and then I can make my mind up. Not impressed with Rolls Royce workers being 'blackmailed' either.

    I am not as I am fascinated by the ability of media and politicians to spin things,,,Its worth watching the circus.You suddenly become aware of of all the biases in the systems and papers.
    Even on here folks twisting and turning desperately trying to prove their point.....innit?

    Yes. It seems to bring out the worst in all of us.

    I was listening to question time last night and as usual most ,except UKIp politicians managed to evade the questions....even the labour guy who didn't seem enthusiastic about much.
    Its not the worst in use.its the confusion of ideas and plain lack of simplicity which is confusing.

    Sucks. Yah. Boo.

    You're scaremongering.

    No, I'm not.

    Yes, you are.

    Well then. So are you.

    My mum's harder than your mum.

    Oh, go shine your shoes!

    You will never never never get a simple statement of facts because there is too much vested interest on both sides of the divide. Also, I suspect some of the "facts" are open to interpretation according to which side of the argument you support. The public will have to listen to what is being said and use their own judgement: that is one of the few simple facts I am aware of.

    The British will vote to remain. Your nation is renowned for playing it safe (no matter how compelling the reasons for leaving - and so few, if any, for remaining).

    And, as I am sure I have said before, those who live in Scotland Wales and NI are having their general elections (due in May) totally overshadowed.

    'With no bias'? You can't get anything with 'no bias', esp. on an issue as important as this...

    How about truthful bias without the exaggeration?
