I'm in. Think of the reason why we joined together in the first place.

Plus, they'll kill us with import duties if we leave.

In, no question

...pointless, potentially ruinous distraction for the next 2 years. Not a single benefit from EU withdrawal (unless you're a greedy lawyer or conniving Hedge Fund manager)

It's the great Tory Con - what exactly do they think they're going to renegotiate? Anything they think is important - immigration controls etc- are sacrosanct to the EU, so they aren't going to change.

Cameron will be turning around in a year or so and saying "Well, we tried to negotiate, but those nasty Europeans wouldn't play balll!"..... I think the country will give him and the idiots a thoroughly convincing, and final, "Let's stay in and play by the rules".

Yes! And what about the Great British Banger! They'll stop us putting sawdust in our traditional sausages.

In.

Re-negotiation is just code for removing workers rights and human rights from the majority of us, so fuck that.

Cameron will go to Europe, get a couple of minor concessions from France and Germany to allow him to save face and then come back claiming a massive victory and new relationship with Europe and campaign for an In vote because that is what big business want and he is their man.

Much of his party will laugh in his face and campaign for no, about 1/3 of his cabinet will resign to campaign for no and the country will be saved 2 years of Tory incompetence as they spend all their time fighting each other like rats in a sack over Europe instead of running the country like a fucking corner shop and trying to privatise everything.

So there is a big up side

How about encouraging Russia to join. And while you're at it how about allowing in Turkey and Israel?

Australia would be the obvious choice.
