On 23 June, we will all have a referendum vote on whether the UK stays in or leaves the European Union. Gordon Glenister examines the options for Britain.
At the time of writing this article, a YouGov poll of voting intentions on the EU referendum showed that 40% wanted to remain in the EU, 37% wanted to leave, and 23% didn’t know or wouldn’t vote. With the vote so finely balanced, Product Media has looked at the arguments on either side of the debate, to help provide some clarity.
There has been and continues to be scaremongering by the media and politicians, and from many I speak to, the views are very split, so I don’t for a moment suggest the decision is easy – it’s more about which is less risky. If we do leave, there will be a two-year time period to extract ourselves, and negotiate new trade deals. One concern of course is that there will be uncertainty in our economy which is not good for trade and investment. So, what are the arguments on either side?
