    All politicians are bastards but at least Westminster are our bastards!

    When the vote actually happens I think we will stay in the EU because the undecided will vote for what they know.

    I was quoting Mussolini's definition of fascism - just to see if anyone in particular noticed ;)

    It doesn't matter whether you, us, or they, like it or not, the other 'they' are going to do it to 'us'.

    I'm out although a difficult call it's like asking if the markets will go up or down. I think out because if we don't like where we are, we would have the opportunity to try something different.

    Politics is dead, the hegemony is complete.

    It hardly matters whether we are in or out. It's rather like we are in a living space that is undergoing some sort of feng shui type of malarkey - we think we are arguing about whether the lamp should be on the table to the left of the door, or the one to the right, but that's not the argument at all. We are the lamp, and we will be put where it suits. There are some things that could change this political landscape in a meaningful way, i can think of four on horseback right off the bat for example, but this won't be one of them.

    I will vote to Remain - mostly in the hope that if we win we will really piss off Bill Cash - maybe to the point where some of those ruddy cheek veins may actually ¡POP! - possibly even on live TV. I fail to see how this is in any way less of a valid reason than you lot with your anti immigration bollox.

    I see today's media reports are crowing about the possibility a so called "red card" system being introduced. Should this be acceptable to member nations it does nothing to turn around existing EU stupidity.
    I must say however, the possibility of seeing Bill Cash getting that p**sed of appeals.

    Maybe the undecided and the confirmed will all vote for what they know, or what they think they know, maybe the y/n camps campaign on what they think they know. .....

    Maybe the turn out will match Staffordshire Police and Crime Comissioner voting numbers

    ( anyone remember what they were?)

    The only thing I can recall is Staffordshire being something like 97% white. Although I've never met anyone white.
