I don't like referenda, I don't like the idea that uninformed people will be making important decisions.


Agree totally, this is why I didn't believe in voting for a very long time.

That is why we have a representative democracy, so that we can elect a government of informed people to make important decisions.


Except you can't trust Cameron to do this. He was always going to vote to stay in however bad the 'deal' he got was, despite saying the opposite. Look at Blair. It might have been true in the past that the elected did what was best for the Country but now they just do what's best for themselves.

because they have an aversion to immigrants and foreigners telling them what to do, both things that have been hyped by our media for years.


The immigration thing I have seen with my own eyes. One of the main reasons I moved out of Portsmouth is it totally unrecognisible to the one I grew up in. Now I have moved I don't have 1 hour waits in the Doctors surgery and every kid in my sons class can speak English, so the teacher can give him more time.

He is indeed Machiavellian.
