    Question Brexit or Britain Stronger?

    Should Britain stay in the EU or leave it?

    With the inevitable poll date fast approaching in June 23rd; I wanted to see what my fellow Britons, or EU or even worldly posters thought on the issue. Personally I am very undecided. I can see pros and cons for both sides, and I really have no idea which side I'll vote for come the referendum. My "heart" tells me to stay in because I believe in unity above separation BUT... my "gut" understands that the EU will never be a united nation, and cannot work as one because each country's own self-interest/preservation and views will always trump compromise and a collective give-and-take required to make the cohesive whole work.

    Thoughts? Do anyone have any strong views one way or another?

    As an outsider, I don't understand this poll. What do you mean by Brexit?

    Brexit is slang for "British Exit"; used to describe the choice for the UK to leave the EU. It was originally coined as Grexit (when Greece was debating leaving).

    I'm on the fence with the issue, currently I think I'm in the stay camp because I am worried about the uncertainty that leaving the EU will bring because that is a thing whether or not the brexiteers say so or not.

    Plus I'll do anything against what the smug bastard Ian Duncan Smith says is a good thing.

    That makes sense. So, if France wanted to leave, it would be Frexit then. Oh, and if Finland wanted to leave, it would be Fixit. [Sorry, couldn't resit]

    Britain is better with or without the EU.

    From what I understand, the EU is a mess doomed to implode in on itself, if it isn't already doing so.

    Scrap the whole thing and come up with a better plan.

    Britain's already half-way left because it never gave up its Pound for the Euro (for the better as I've read), so I suppose leaving the EU altogether isn't too painful a process. Plus, the UK's always set itself apart from the mainland in varying degrees throughout history, yes?

    I'm not able to vote but Britain should stay. Greater cooperation will be the secret to success in the years to come

    I want Britain to exit the EU. The EU will be weakened by their exit and this is good for the US dollar.

    Staying in the EU means being a signatory to TTIP - which removes all the benefits of actually being in the EU in the first place, so staying or going may ultimately be meaningless choices.
    I am genuinely torn on this issue, though this is more to do with the pro and anti campaigns both being fronted by complete tossers. You can either side with Boris Johnson, who looks, acts, and creates policy like a clown with his make-up removed, or David Cameron, who once fucked a dead pig's face.

    You've kind of hit the nail on the head there Kieran. Whilst I personally find the EU to be a giant political vanity project, the history of our continent tells me that we're probably better off moving forward together.

    I'll probably vote 'Stay' but with reservations.

    EEk, I can't even vote because I'll be a week off turning 18! But I'm out.

    There should be an option that says "stay and reform the EU." I too believe in the spirit of cooperation, but so much was done wrong when the EU was created it's not fun.
