Maybe England needs to spend the money on these because it's not sitting, oh so bloody smugly, on oil?

No question, I want out of the EU for the UK as a whole.

And they will patrol those waters how exactly?

Remember the cod wars with Norway ect,?

There might be all sorts of taxes imposed on any farm/fish produced.

How long does it take to destroy an industry?

And you think the EU will accept that without a fight?

So the EU is going to accept your fishing rights and yet at the same time pay you agricultural subsidies?

And that's old thinking.

Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, basically Eastern Europe, are now in the mix.
Poor countries with massive rural dependency.

I'll tell her check the labels on the sugar.
Of course I have told her to get used to it without sugar, it's a good opportunity to cut down.

Years and years ago it was the same in restaurants. Use Camp Coffee for the Irish coffees.

Perhaps it helped the cream float?

It's obvious that a close "no" win risks violence more than a close "yes" win.

Where else is all this emotion being stirred up going to go?

They shouldn't at all.

In that instance, then a yes result would be better IMO.

If it's close it's better it were yes.
