I think remain are going to win, just, it'll be very close, expecting recounts galore and "hanging chad" controversy. Cameron D. will adopt the demeanour he used after the 2015 unexpected conservative win and plan his retirement as Johnson B is handed his destiny on a plate. I may not own any of their records, but I always feel quietly protective towards the Status Quo.
Discuss, if you like? No pressure.

Southover certainly "IN" (seems like all windows support remaining in the UK).

I also think Remain will win by a whisker, thanks to the ineptitude and nastiness of some figures in Leave.EU, plus the Jo Cox factor. I will still be voting Leave, but with less enthusiasm than I felt a month ago. I don't think either side has come out well in this referendum.

I think we will definitely remain. The outcome will have nothing to do with the counting of votes.

I'll be voting 'IN', partly because would you actually entrust the running of our country to the thieving scheming lot that are currently in parliament?
From what I read at the weekend, the European Government can veto a 'Leave' vote anyway so is it a mahoosive waste of time, money and effort?

Good point Town Flyer, even with an out vote, incumbent administrations could still pick and choose bits that effectively mean we are still in.

Silly short sighted and illogical argument but..
*Who are desperately trying to keep us in the EU... smell a rat? they are the same people, except with the EU you cannot get rid of them.
Answer me one question if the EU is so wonderful why are JP morgan and Goldman Sachs spending huge amounts of money on the campaign to keep us in.
Think about it...

The migrants point is a nonsense cooked up to appeal to people who don't want to say they don't like foreigners. Norway is out and has higher immigration and higher EU immigration than we do. Leaving will make no difference whatever Farage tries to tell you.

I read somewhere recently that there is no mechanism for recounts at the referendum. At other elections, it's up to the candidate to request a recount when it's close, but there's no actual candidate in this case.
I'm predicting a leave result, but by a narrow margin. If there's an important Euro match on, and/or it's piddling down with rain, that may put off the Kippers and tip the balance in favour of staying in.
If the outcome is to leave, I wonder what odds you could get on us still being in in 10 years' time? I reckon it'll take at least that long to get it sorted.

Annette, just had a squint at the referendum rules and recounts can be requested at a local level by campaigners and political parties. If it's very close I expect there to be calls for this, imagine, for example, there are only 50 votes in it and 200 spoiled papers in a particular constituency.

About 3:1 in favour, according to the poll thread.
I can't say that I'm surprised. Out of people I know personally, very few say they intend to vote leave. And of those, only one surprised me. And none of them live in Lewes!
Even my Daily Express reading aged aunt is voting to remain, she says because the NHS will fall apart if we can't have staff from Europe working here.
