EU Article- First Thoughts

If I decide it's worth my time, and it probably is, I want to write a detailed article about the UK's EU Referendum. This is probably the most important vote I've had in my life so far.

Instinctively I feel I will vote to leave the EU. The only downside of this vote for me personally would be if Britain voted to leave the EU which could mean that probably my shares will go down in the short term. Possibly this decision could make them go up in the medium or long term. It's POSSIBLE I might even sell some shares before the vote... we'll see. But there are lots of positive points for me in leaving the EU. It'll be good for the UK economy- the UK pays in far more than it gets back from the EU. Too much immigration has had many negative effects for the UK. British people are faced with constrained wages and unemployment partly due to increased immigration. There is too much pressure on public services and overcrowding.

British people should create their own laws. The majority of British laws are currently imposed by the EU. This must change.

Anyway... some people will not be too happy with this viewpoint but that's how I feel at the moment. It's important to realize that a lot of 'pro EU' propaganda will come from EITHER sources with a real leftist viewpoint or those with an extreme capitalist viewpoint, quite a mix. Just because I'm a HSBC shareholder doesn't mean I'm a HSBC slave. They're thinking what's best for them as a company but not really what'll be best for the UK as a whole. I urge my British readers to consider all the issues when voting.
