Should They Stay Or Should They Go?

Britons are heading to the polls today for the Brexit referendum.

Polling stations have opened across the United Kingdom on Thursday morning after a closely-fought referendum campaign that neither side is confident enough to call.

A final rash of polls offered mixed predictions, with two putting remain ahead and two suggesting leads for leave. Most suggest as many as 10% of voters are still undecided, meaning much could hinge on turnout today.

Politicians on both sides made their final pitches yesterday, slaloming the UK in a last-ditch effort to win over waverers and opponents.

I really don’t have a dog in this fight, but based on the rhetoric I’ve heard from the Leave side, including some pretty Trump-like xenophobia, I’m inclined to come down on the Remain in the E.U. side.

2 barks and woofs on “Should They Stay Or Should They Go?

  1. Of course that’s the underlying reason for this stupid referendum. Lock the doors! Pull up the drawbridge! But should it pass they might be surprised that Scotland wants out again and there will be passports required to get into Northern Ireland from England. And England won’t be able to replace the subsidies for farmers that come from the EU, for one example. Like Trump, they won’t be able to self-finance.

  2. I agree that I think they should stay in the EU. I think leaving the EU would be bad for the world economy. That said, I don’t get a vote. Darn!
