I had no doubt ramsej. :P

Personally, I have a lot of reservations on the EU, but I believe the way forward is for the UK to stay and for them to lead the discussion on a series of necessary reformations. I believe Malta have already pledged their support to them if that happens, though I could be wrong.

I think the effects of Brexit on the EU would lead us to a worse situation than we currently are in, and although I am no expert, all the experts seem to think that the UK will suffer even more than the EU. I hold the UK close to my heart (except in football :evil: ) so I don't want that to happen.

Impossible. USA don't want that all. They want to have complete control of the European continent.

Brexit will fail since the global corp elites won't allow British people to do such thing. But that doesn't mean the Brits won't behave like nothing didn't happen. On the contrary, EUSSR is already blackmailed by UK and they have their demands for staying in EUSSR. These demands are awful for everyone in Europe and I expect from the other countries to create a mess and demand the same thing.

My friend who's been living in Malta for some 25 years or so does not have a vote. Nor has he yet been given Maltese citizenship. A Brexit would affect him since he'd be treated as a non-EU resident in Malta, and yet he has no vote.

Strange because my Singaporean and Malaysian friends can vote. Do you have to be a resident perhaps? That doesn't really make sense though.

I can't vote but I'd be remain.

I'm very EU oriented and I think it is the way forward for this continent to remain competitive and relevant in global politics.

UK is not fully part of EU... they're not part of Schengen... they don't use Euro, etc... UK can survive without EU... EU can survive without them.

Odds seem to be heavily favouring Remain, as are stock market indications (according to Twitter).

If I was a Brit, I'd vote Brexit... they're a big country, they don't need any unions except their own. They're in the same course, united or not... except maybe more independence and they already have more than other members of EU.

I can't vote but I'd be remain.

Here's the explanation:

Citizens of Ireland, Malta and Cyprus resident in the UK are eligible to vote in the referendum and citizens of other EU countries do not have it. Ireland and Britain have more than 30 years old bilateral agreement where citizens of one country have a right to participate in the elections of another. Cypriots and Maltese have that right as a citizen of the Commonwealth.

Seeing that now. Also between 25-50 injured. Not sure whether any of our German members are from the vicinity. I hope everyone is fine.
