In or Out?

I don't have much to say. Seriously.

If anything, I take my cue from my late Great-Grandfather who fought at the Battle of the Somme, where nearly 60,000 men were killed in the first day of fighting. I know if Nunc was still alive and you asked him if integration and Union was a price worth paying for peace, he'd reply with an emphatic "Yes".

I could of course go through all the crass arguments that have been made by both sides -- Johnson and Cameron are no better or worse than each other -- but I'll spare you the pain.

But, to be honest, the EC Referendum is small change when you look at the World's problems, not least the seismic shift in our environment, poverty and slavery. Perhaps we're more likely to make a dent on our own, but something tells me a Union of like-minded people (I know we're not that like-minded but we're still all human beings) is far more likely to make a difference that the (current) Tory Government.

Of course, this isn't conclusive of anything but it's where I stand.
