Eastern European countries when joined, of course poor countries so what did the EU expect to happen? UK not the only dissatisfied countries as further referendums if given will show. Nothing to do with racism, UK is not a white country given the vote, it is made of of many different cultures. The scare stories have been vast and well publicised and gaining momentum still hoping to scare us into changing our minds. The banking groups threatening maybe relocate to France due to needing workers here and if left EU not possible , same argument regarding NHS nurses etc? Absolute rubbish! A points based immigration policy, if a bank wants the workers, of course they are allowed, simple, nurses, same, they get the points as those are needed, likewise and trade and skills needed, the unskilled jobs, not needed due to high unemployment here and unskilled workforce available. The currency dip and stock markets, they will sort themselves out. Yes a bit of uncertainty at the moment but to stay in the EU, certain to get worse as the larger that gets so does uncontrollable immigration. Race or colour for me is irrelevant, if you are rainbow colours but able provide a skill needed? You get the points and you are in! The cost to being in the EU too high. Laws ought be made and we governed by the UK, not EU decide. The EU will trade with us fact, we still shall continue as beneficial, we also able make trade agreements with the WORLD as not tied by EU laws or 28 countries need decide!
