As a British citizen (that is too young to vote) and an Alevel geography student I urge any of you that can vote in it to vote IN, This sounds harsh but y'all going to probably die before me as you are older so you won't have to live with your bad choices as long as I will and I don't want you to mess up the economy anywhere the time where I will be getting a job.

As you have noted if we ask we will probably be let back in... at some point... but if you were one of those countries and say France was like "yeah... we don't need you and we will be better off without you so yeah... we are leaving" do you really think France would be let back in? Probs not and probs the same for Britain.

Also as a citizen it makes like no sense all it will effect you really is that it will be far more expensive to move or have a holiday in EU countries than it was and having to wait longer in going to EU countries than you used to, also yay import and customs charge increases or whatever when buying stuff from the EU.

Also do you really think anyone would want to trade with us? A tiny island tbh like we haven't exactly got a large number of possible customers here and like if you could make a trade deal with the EU and sell for higher profits in the EU due to cutting taxes in side due to it being a trade bloc would you? or would you trade individually in the UK where all products would be taxed and you would make less profits than operating inside the eu?

Also I quite like the UK having to have a EU bill of human rights thing tbh... and there have been like no wars in Europe for ages and that's probably in part due to the EU and yeah....

Just please consider voting in especially if you have decided not to vote when you can...

I'm also kind of wondering why the press coverage in general in the UK is more pro-brexit than neutral...

The cited arguments in pro and contra seems to be Economics (33%), UK Sovereignty (29%), Migration (18%), Regulations (14%) and Terrorism (6%).

There hasn't been any wars in the EU because Germany finally won. How many fucking EU countries has a pact with Germany for the Germans to pretty much do their self defense? Between that and the Americans throwing hardware at them, yeah, no reason to go to war.

Yet.

Honestly I don't think the UK has big enough stones to stand on their own anymore.

Chances are we will vote out. The rest of the EU doesn't want this for a couple of reasons:
1) We are one of the biggest economies in the EU ( Second actually I think?). As such we do a fair bit of importing and exporting.
2) There is growing dissent in many EU countries towards the EU itself, due to the handling of the recent migrant crisis. If the UK leaves and does well, it might cause a so-called domino-effect.
3) There will be the obvious problem with all the current ex-pats living in EU zones from the freedom of movement that EU provides, as well as EU nationals living in the UK.

Then there's all the details about direct and indirect effects on Britain itself, which no one knows for sure, leaving a shroud of doubt over potential voters / undecided voters.

I personally will vote out, but only because of loss of liberty EU countries will soon face, what with the upcoming "Five Presidents' Report". I would much prefer to stay in the EU if it planned to remain a trading union, which it doesn't.

General Press in the UK ( BBC ) is practically completely pro-remain.

The UK is finished if they are dumb enough to stay in the EU.

Oh right! Yeah you're right, most of the independent newspapers are anti-eu, as most people are - more people to sell to!

After reading that I'm glad you can't vote yet.

My heart says out but my head says probably in. Haven't decided 100% yet but probably out. Only advice I will give people is not to base your opinion on some random YouTube video, because they are all insane.

Voting out, we don't need the EU (like mainstream media tries telling us), the EU needs us. Besides we're one of the best economies in the world, and that's with giving a load of shit into the EU. Without them we'd be much better off. Either way, in or out, some people will suffer, but I think going out will be better in the long run. Especially since no one knows who is in power in the EU, and even when given names and a picture people still don't know who they are. Yet they are passing laws and regulations to all countries including the UK. That is bullshit, and the main reason I've voted out.

Either way I've lost care, as I'll be living in Japan in a few years. This is all I can do, my one last bit of effort for this country.
