    Default Why I'll be voting to stay in Europe

    1. Brexit's only REAL effect will lead to lack of influence on Europe and a loss of standing and prestige for Britain in the world - as the US and China have made clear.
    2. Brexit will lead to the break up of Britain as Scotland will want to join Europe.
    3. The cost of Britain's net contribution to the EU is about 1% of total expenditure - i.e. negligible.
    4. Britain's economy is not very strong being unbalanced towards financial services and weak in manufacturing. This imbalance will grow if we left the Euro and lost links to large Euro projects e.g. Airbus. It also makes no sense for Japanese and other foreign car firms to stay in the UK.
    5. It doesn't seem as if EU immigration will stop. Both Switzerland and Norway have larger per capita EU immigration than Britain and they are outside the EU.
    6. We'll still have to follow Euro rules in exchange for trade rights as Switzerland and Norway have had to do.

    The EU will break up if the UK leaves.

    It's the 2nd biggest economy in Europe.

    Well, that settles that then.

    I think referendum should be cancelled to save money.

    No.

    The Eurozone is very fragile.

    The EU is also fragile, with other nations interested to see how the UK votes.

    If you were to give the EU a bill of health you would say very fragile, likely to suffer from external shocks.

    So cutting off an arm, and septic shock will set in.
