As another intellectual rightly stated on this forum in another thread: the remain camp has not been project 'fear', rather project 'spot-on.
World War III is around the corner and I for one have already invested in an Anderson shelter for me and my family. We also have our gas masks at the ready, should that treacherous Merkel of the ghastly Christian Democratic Union send over her fighter jets and bombers to dear old multicultural Britain.
They told us this would happen - but did we listen!? Like hell we did. Thank you leavers for leading us to imminent annihilation. We are likely to all be frazzled to death by one of Putin's nuclear warheads!
Not to mention the fact Osbourne has gone crazy and hiked taxes, just as he assured us he would. £2.24 increase in beer duty!? And the oxygen tax, for the love of God!

1. The EU was set up to ensure that war in Europe could not be possible again. It achieves this through integration of and cooperation between European countries. Break up of the EU will increase instability in Europe which in turn increases the likelihood of war. The big fear is that Brexit will lead to the break up of the EU.
2. The UK has just lost our triple A credit rating. This means interest payments on our huge national debt will increase. How do you think this will be paid for if not in tax increases?
You are a fool if you if you thought anyone was indicating that tax would increase and war start the day after the referendum. But then I guess you did vote for Leave.

Exactly. Give it a year, possibly 2, and the Leavers will have forgotten their choice of vote in the EU referendum, and will be kicking up a stink and a fuss about the high food & fuel prices, along with tax hikes. And who bought this upon us ? Oh yes, I shall remember.

Derry, is that an attempt at threatening us individually, or as a country?

NATO has kept the peace by the threat of war, or often by making war. It is a fairly negative organisation dominated by a single militaristic country whose continued interest in an integrated, peaceful (and powerful) Europe cannot be guaranteed.
The EU on the other hand keeps the peace in Europe through more positive means, by promoting easy trade, cooperation and some integration between member states. It has been responsible for peacefully bringing a number of states lead by fascist dictators into the democratic EU fold.
The EU is undoubtedly a strong and positive force for peace in Europe and generally a much better bet than NATO.

I know it's boring to state facts but Putin was the only world leader who supported Brexit because he knew it'd weaken Britain without needing an invasion. VAT is set to go up (announced today) so yes, taxes will go up and cost of living etc. Not to mention petrol and food price increases even before VAT goes up. Britain is also almost certainly going to lose it's veto on the UN security council as previously we represented a European voice, now we represent less than the population of France (also under discussion). Brexiters have voted their "great" Britain into insignificance. It'd be funny if it wasn't so tragic for us patriots.

NATO was focussed on a potential Soviet attack, not preventing a European civil War. France wasn't even NATO between 1966 and 2009. The EU was originally Churchill's idea. See viedo.
