Why does this Google driverless car need wing mirrors?
Road rage from this Google car.
Last Wednesday I posted up an online poll on whether visitors to this blog wished to remain in the EU, or leave and become a self governing nation again. Below are the results.
Of course I don’t expect it to reflect the general population as a whole. The general public don’t get the time to read deeply on the rights and wrongs of the EU.
However it is food for thought. Even a forty percent less vote for leave would be a win for Brexit.
BTW. If you were one of the ten who voted to remain in this poll, I would be interested to have you comment below. Your views would be of interest to me.
Our prime minister castigates those who wish to leave the EU by telling them they must have a coherent plan if the vote in the referendum is to leave.
He calls on Leave campaigners to spell out the kind of trading relationship Britain would have outside the EU and demands that they detail how the UK would cooperate with other countries to stop terrorists.
In an appeal to voters, the Prime Minister says jobs, the cost of living and family finances are all at stake in the referendum on June 23.
Isn’t that the job of the government of the day? To plan for both scenarios. Leave and remain.
After all the civil service have been instructed to withhold information about the EU from skeptical cabinet ministers. How can the leave campaign be blamed?
I remember well the last referendum on staying in the EU. It was pretty much one sided in favour of staying in. The politicos took over the main stream media and filled the average man’s brain with abject fear of what would happen if we left. The same as now.
Job losses, the stock market would go into freefall, the pound would collapse, our industry could not survive, etc, etc.
So we voted to stay in.
Then we experienced:
The decimation of our fishing grounds by foreign super trawlers, and lost most of our orchards due to the common agriculture policy, the ability to control our population in this small island nation, seventy percent of our laws are now drafted by the EU commission and just nodded through into British law
My thoughts on that last item is why then do we need 650 MP’s to sit back and let others decide the future of our country? Best bet would be to save a considerable amount of money by hanging seventy percent of the MPs and make the remainder work for a living. or better still, hang the lot and start again!
Those of us who would vote to leave are going to have to fight a very one sided battle against those that wish to remain. There is so much vested interest in the remain camp and vast sums of money to be spent in frightening the average Joe into voting to remain.
There is one difference between then and now which could address the balance to some extent.
We didn’t have the internet in the seventies. If I can just persuade a handful of people to vote leave then I’ll consider my job done.
