Well I've been brave and voted out, but if Cameron can substantially renegotiate, then I might change my mind

I have a coarse fishery and spend far too much time talking to my customers: immigration is the BIG issue for 100% of them. As we all know, the customer is always right

Perhaps we should emigrate to Poland: it's nice and quiet there now

Ive just been looking at forum statistics; apparently we have over 3000 members, and yet only 15 have bothered to vote

Come on, you only have to tick a box; it doesn't hurt!!

Leaving the EU, as I have said, does not mean the end of immigration issues.
If anyone wants to leave on that issue alone they need to find out the facts first.
I don't know the facts and until I have a clearer idea i wouldn't be making a decision.
There could well be far more to loose than gain.

You may well be right but at least we'll only have our own politicians to blame. As for knowing the facts; will we ever

having lived and worked in munich and also spent few years working for bands traveling all over teh continent with open borders and single currency im all for it.

as for immigrants if they do the job better than a uk person for less money whats the problem? up skill our workforce, make them work harder or linger on in protected industries closed shops unions, winter of discontent?

why shouldn't someone else have what we have? there are genuinely very few ppl who aim to come here not to work and live off welfare but we have plenty of our home bread ppl who never intend to work or have a job!
