Do you want the UK to leave the EU?

Well the time for the UK to vote to stay in the EU or leave is almost upon us. I doubt many of you have failed to be bored almost witless but the unregulated use of statistics and the drama that would mean the UK will "literally" explode a minute after the result is announced, whatever it is.

So ... In, Out or What's it all about?

What, no-one wants the UK to leave? :)

Let's hope that the vote goes that way on Thursday.

Since I don't vote either in the UK or in France, I've not added to the poll here. Surprisingly, in today's poll in Le Figaro, 65% of the 21,000 respondents seem to want the UK out of the UE. Again, folks who respond to polls in Le Figaro are not a cross-section of French opinion....a French friend recently told me that some of the French would like to see the UK out because it would shift the center of finances in Europe from London to Paris......the Eastern Europeans (Baltic countries, Poland) are very nervous about weakening the EU, since they've some experience with their Russian neighbors. I do personally believe that a Brexit would be pretty bad for both the EU and the UK; but having a common currency without a common economic policy is a recipe for trouble.......

yeah, the first eight hours have been very easy. My friends here, however, are quite glum about it.

Among other things, what happens now is an independence vote in Scotland--especially if the EU offers Scotland membership if it leaves the UK.
