Thanks old pal - even without a physical fix, the relentless state sponsored propaganda on behalf of the EU represents an affront to democracy that Putin would be proud of. The chances of a population voting against that level of propagdanda are extremely slim; the fact that it even remains close shows the depth of the problem. BOR and co can say what they like but the British people do not like answering to an anti-democratic bloc that is imposing mass migration upon them. Even if the EU propagandists buy their victory this time, it will only be kicking the can down the road.
One way or the other, Europe is heading for pain, thanks to the unholy alliance between elitist governments, big business and wooly minded lefties.

My one pro-Brexit friend just changed his vote. He said he wanted to shake things up, but just found out that "shaking things up" was going to affect his company, which has offices in Berlin and Amsterdam as well as Manchester and London. So he's changing his vote because he likes his job.

Once again, anecdote vs data. But anecdotally, it seems like it comes down to this broad, almost science fiction, vision of the future - a world where the EU forces the UK to be overrun by Poles and Muslims, who burn down London, kill the unarmed white men, rape the unarmed white women, then turn the island into a giant brown third world cesspool - and their own personal reality. Basically, a world that already exists, where they can work, travel, and live freely in a relatively large and diverse part of the world, rather than one small-ish island.

I notice the most of the enthusiastically pro-Brexit people in the BFC are USAmericans, not Brits or Europeans. Which, once again, is anecdotal, but since we aren't actually choosing between the convenient and profitable reality of an EU passport vs the fevered UKIP visions of an apocalyptic scifi future that almost certainly won't happen, neither affects us. Which gives us a certain freedom of hyperbole.

She is talking about the majority of pro-Brexit active posters on the BFC to be American but fails to highlight that there are only about 5 or 6 active posters on here anyway.

Not true, a whopping 14 people have cast their vote on this forum alone!

Oh. That many? Okay then, I'll say 5 or 6 posters OF SUBSTANCE, I wasn't including those that have only 1-3 letters in their monikors and that's it, as they don't have that much to say that is meaningful and/or of note.

I could give a rats ass about the UK. But I made the 15th vote.
But I think referendum is going to go the same way as the Scottish succession vote.
Lots more lurkers here than posters for sure. I only have time to post when I'm not working, Waiting for it to quit raining now.
Enough substance to rate me ?

Europe is on the edge of civil war and England will avoid it by voting leave.

No matter what way it goes (and I don't think for a minute we'll be leaving the EU, out vote win or not), Bob Geldof will always be a complete and utter shitcunt

Back in 1981 I worked at the Edgewater Hotel on the Seattle waterfront, where a significant number of entertainers stayed when in town. Geldof and other Boomtown Rats were in the bar and he rebuffed me soundly when I made a foolish attempt to say something to him. I told my bud the bartender about it, and he wiped a booger onto the bottom of the straw of the drink Geldof ordered. I've always wished that it had been my booger but I guess a booger on my behalf is better than no booger at all. I can't remember if it was a Monday or not.

We booed them off the stage at a Van Halen concert in the L.A. Coliseum.

It didn't occur to me that any of the stragglers still posting here out of boredom or habit were incapable of counting. And yet, there are. Coincidentally, they are all both pro-Brexit and USAmerican.

As an aside, anyone want to prognosticate numbers? I'll say 58% remain, 38% leave, 4% who knows what those people are thinking. With a relatively low turnout. Anyone else?

The EU cares not for votes and repeats or ignores the ones that do not favor them. And will rig the rest. Btitainistan is doomed. Any who'd care to flee are welcome in Alaska where you will be able to use your accents to clean up on the babes till your looks go; then live as grumpy old hermits in the bush, a fine Northern tradition.
