    I don't see how the British people should be hostage to the financial markets. We have a lot more to complain about in respect of the EU. That starts from the simple premise that we were lied to in the campaigns before the June 1975 EC referendum. The EU is undemocratic. Its Parliament may be elected democratically, but it has little power. Meanwhile, more than 70% of British law is formulated in Brussels. The EU provides no protection against unwanted migration and, through its association with the ECHR, denies Britain the right to deport criminals. The EU artificially raises prices to the benefit of certain members and the detriment of others. The EU interferes in too much of British life. The EU has a long-term objective with which Britain does not agree. That objective is a federal state including the whole of Europe. Since Britain does not agree, it will have to leave sooner or later or be forced to join. Britain has a history of success in the world covering around a thousand years. We didn't need Europe before, we don't need it now. Should we appeal to the UN on the grounds that we are being denied self-determination?

    I want to get out too, sadly I moved to Gibraltar...with no assurance from London that Gib will be safe from Spanish threats to close the border, or cause massive delays and their vow to strangle the local's going to be tough to vote out here.

    London never stands up for Gibraltar against the conquistadors, even when their border guards opened a British diplomatic bag a while ago and almost daily sends armed civil guard boats into British territorial waters, however the poxy EU don't try to control Spain either. A tough call.

    @ 3 tezza

    I have great sympathy with your plight but see the future as an opportunity for Gibraltar if the LEAVE vote wins.

    The Spanish cowards will no longer be able to hide within the EU and America will undoubtedly expand their use of Gib as a base in the Med.

    How could any UK government fail to support Gib militarily under these circumstances.

    As for closing the border would this not create even more problems for their own people, the people who already are riven into factions against the twats in government?

    Given the lies being promulgated about Brexit by the UK government, the BBC, many of the supposedly grown up papers (I have just cancelled my subscription to the Telegraph because of it) it remains unclear just what is going to happen.

    Brave people only die once, cowards die ever minute they breath. Vote LEAVE and live for the future.

    Is it not true that much of the British military infrastructure has been removed or converted to EU premises and usage,
    I presume Gibraltar complained abt this, I happen to think, that as a so called strategic base, then the British government should upgrade it and make full use of this base and have warships permanently based their , plus the RAF and army,

    but one suspects that all this reduction is due to the EU and British government pacifism,
    but that's just my opinion,

    as for Spain, she should be kicked out of the EU for blatantly being aggressive and threatening to a fellow ally,

    and nato should remove Spain for collaborating with Europe and NATOs opponent other wise know as Russia,

    how can this country entertain Russian ships and other military and no doubt collaborating with the Russian military or other activities on European soil,

    again just my opinion, but if this is what Spain calls being a friend,
    then soddy offy Spain.
