    the uk needs to stay inside europe if they leave they will be completely cut off from the rest of the world and they wont be able to draw up new trade agreements with europe or anything else they will go back into the dark ages a leave vote is racist if england leaves then they will
    close their borders and there will be no immigration there needs to be
    loads more diversity and anyone who disagrees is just a bigoted racist.

      ‘…and anyone who disagrees is just a bigoted racist.’
      You must be a master debater with doozies like that.

      Frankly, I wouldn’t dream of sharing a continent with someone who has no concept of the full stop.

      In fairness to the Swiss they have cuckoo clocks, penknives, chocolate and cheese… And all the world’s laundered monies

        I feel like there should have been a sinister laugh at the end of that comment.

      Swiss are part of Schengen, approximately 25% of their exports are pharmaceuticals or high value medical products, that the EU need and do not manufacture. 10% Of UK exports are cars, all owned by foreign companies (EU and India) all with cheaper manufacturing bases located in larger target markets than the UK.The big difference between teh Swiss and the UK is the Swiss export porducts that have an intrinsic value to their economy, via employment, taxation etc. 10% of all UK exports are gold and precious metals, neither of which they mine or refine!

      As a Swiss resident for 7 months a year, the cost of home produced food is extortionate, even heavily taxed EU imports are cheaper! This will be the biggest blow the the UK the sudden increase in the cost of food, due to a smaller market and higher costs.

    If the UK leave they won’t be able to draw up trade agreements with the EU? That’s not true. Norway does 80% exports to the EU and Switzerland does over 50% with it. Neither country is in the EU. I’m blue in the face listening to the rubbish surrounding this. The Brtis got lied to about Scotland leaving the union and the Scots got conned. Looks like it’s going to happen again.

      Eoin, Norway is a member of the EEA, pays for the privilege too, 80% of its rules comply with EU directives, 95% of its laws are EU compliant. It also exports 100% of the Gas it takes out of the ground, funnily enough most of it to the UK!

      But you know other than being a member of the EEA, (Which the UK wont on exit) and one of the worlds largest gas producers and exporters, oh and running the national grid on Hydro, they are the exact same as the uk
