    If they are already here legally then they would stay. My hope is we regain some controls and decide who we let in. Personally I'd like to see something like Australia - if you haven't got what we want or need, or we haven't agreed to let you in for any particular reason (eg agreed numbers for humanitarian reasons) then you don't come in. And if you do come in we have the ability to send you back out quick march.
    Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who actually do.

    Quite agree with you here and that is one of several reasons I'm an OUT person. We were warned not going into the Eurozone would be bad for business and look how that has panned out. Our financial services industry appears to be thriving, I'm sure we won't have any real issues long term as people will still want to trade with us.

    Well said. Could not agree more.

    In for economic reasons as the GDP and house prices will suffer if we leave. However out as we let some bad countries in over the last decade, half he roma gypsy population of slovakia, romania and hungary have moved to south yorkshire.

    I'd happily stay if we could relegate the above 3 countries and send the roma back to their woodland villages.

    Even if we go I have a feeling that the ones we don't want are here to stay, the damage is done.

    Surely all this is going to do is cost the Royal Mail a fortune in unpaid mail being dumped? I doubt the government will pay to release the mail and if they did it's only going to cost us in the long run. If you do put a stamp on its going to cost you money.... Although this is probably the most effective thing for us all to do.

    Very interesting programme on last night about how Britain's application to join the European union was rejected not once but twice. It.s probably something not many people in this country are aware of.

    I will be voting to remain. Have weighed up the pros and cons,- for me there is more to gain than lose by being part of a European Union.
    I think it will be close though, but the the remains will just nudge it.

    Yes, I watched it too and agree, a really interesting programme.

    Here's the iPlayer link:

    The troubled history of the UK's relationship with Europe. Episode one examines why British governments initially shunned the new Common Market then begged to join.
