Thanks Jeff. It's really good to hear some intelligent, informed opinion that acknowledges the pros and cons of each side. Most people are guilty of black and white thinking on this issue. The truth is much messier. We should vote on the basis of principles rather than pie in the sky figures.

Hi i'm Paul Mason I want to leave the EU because it is utterly undemocratic however I won't be voting to leave the EU as I don't like the *possible* choice of government by the democratic will of the people in a subsequent general election.
Either you believe in democracy or you don't. Remainers don't.
What an a complete tosser. Whingey whiney left who can't form a proper party or movement of their own so they seek to deny the democratic will of the country through the fascist EU.

I speak as a democratic socialist, old labour supporter and admirer of Tony Benn who would of been appalled at the way supposed Labour and left members have aligned themselves with corporates greed, banks and unelected commissioners to brainwash the British people.
A note on the 1975 referendum where we where also lied to in exactly the same fashion:
The ‘Yes’ group was able to raise a further £2million from pro-European businesses and supporters, while the ‘No’ group managed to collect a mere £166,000 in addition to the public funds. ‘Yes’ was able to outspend ‘No’ by 12 to 1.
Money wins the day, lots of remainers only looking after their own pockets.
Shame on you all.

Ken Loach. .............The European Union is doing us no favours at the moment.the safeguards that there are for workers and for the environment are constantly under attack,but if we leave we know that the individual governments will be moving as far right as possible.........................................................that`s why we should stay in and make alliances with other European left movements. Ken Loach speaking at the Cannes Film Festival........REAL SOCIALIST VOTE IN!

@Socialist - I respect Ken Loach's position, but when we've had a large leftwing block in the EU parliament, it hasn't made a huge difference to the workings of the Commission and their pro-corporate mentality. I think we'll be best served by voting to leave and joining the new, reformed organisation that will replace the EU in a few years. If we have the balls to leave, other countries will follow and the gravy train will derail. If we stay, nothing will change.

Thanks Jeff. That's surely pure and undiluted Common Sense (reference to Tom Paine, of course)

Just be cautious listening to yet another BBC left wing journalist whose experience in the real working world you could not write down and fill on the back of a postage stamp! A while ago he blamed immigration in Liverpool upon the slave trade........he must be nuts! Nuts, too, like the way Boris, Gove, Farage and other right wing extremists are behaving whose real ambition is power and sod the nation.

I read the article in which Mason said the same thing and I have peered into his book in which he argues that capitalism is about to implode ( as always ).,.,this time becasue of IT
I don`t see the point of him personally ,Marxism is not a system anyone takes seriously , he might as well be a flat earther or a creationist , seems nice enough ut honestly what is the point ?
