The EU Referendum: A Neutral View and How to Vote!
With only a few days to go and the result expected later this week, we all need to consider how important this vote will be on Thursday and why it is so essential to vote in this EU referendum. It is a ‘once in a generation chance’ to use your democratic right. The case for BREXIT: The EU is not, as some would let you believe, the crutch that holds up an otherwise faltering UK economy or that the fastest growing European economy, being the UK, would collapse once the bureaucracy that comes from a largely unelected European body politic is removed,
As a nation we have constantly adapted and embraced innovation. Ideation is in the British DNA. Our great nation is founded on the ability to adjust, change and find the new markets required to buy our goods and services. There will be some uncertainty while new trade agreements are forged and made, and there will be adjustment while certain pieces of legislation are dismantled and put back together. However it will be worth it, for the ‘holy grail’ of the independence that goes after those short term sacrifices.
To REMAIN: It makes little sense to throw the economy and the population into greater uncertainty for little apparent gain. This era of greater globalisation brings questions of identity and nationality. Both of these are lessening, watering down and it surely is a much smaller world than it ever was with the advent of the Internet. Hence Britain has to embrace this as local actions alone cannot solve global problems.
United and with a pan European bond and togetherness can the new stronger EU fight the cause for all Europe? No more wars, moving towards a common sovereignty and currency will enable the single market to flourish. The UK needs to be and has to be central to all of this.
How to vote: If you are 60 or over, ask the 30 year olds around you what they want and vote accordingly.
If you are between 40 and 60 recall that the last referendum was 40 years ago. Take a selfish view and vote what benefits you the most
If you are 18 and over, but below 40, remember that whichever way you vote - you will have to take full responsibility for the outcome. The result will manifest itself in 15 years time, as you peak in your working life.
But do vote, with a heavy heart and good luck.
Predictions are that ‘brexit’ voters will turn out while the ‘remain’ campaign, (somewhat laid back) may stay at home. The result will end and start certain political careers and the landscape on June 24th will be irrevocably different. Why do we put ourselves through all of this?
