Today is the day the UK make a decision whether or not to stay within the EU.
Just to give a quick rundown, the EU was made up of 6 countries after World War 2, part of it was to make sure something like either world war was never to happen again. It allows free trade and movement with it.
From what I gather (and I could be talking out my arse here) its a bit like the US, each country (State) has its own government can create its own laws and its own budget, but there is a higher power which creates laws for certain things to benefit all countries.
This is a massive decision, which to be honest should never have been given to the people. We are voting on something which is massive and will have reprecussions throughout Europe no matter the vote, but we are not voting on facts because if anyone says they know 100% what is going to happen is either a liar or a time traveller.
We have mainly been bombarded with mudslinging and scare tactics. If we vote out, we are going to go into a recesssion that we might not recover. If we vote in, then we will lose all control of our laws.
There are good arguments on both sides, and there are some terrible ones. One of the best ones that I have seen is that if we leave we have more chance of winning the Eurovision.
There is the theory of course, that this vote is to give us the illusion that we are being given a choice and infact nothing will change, and it will all be a fix.
However if you are in the UK and are still on the fence, please regardless go and vote, pick one, that you think is the best. If you don’t vote then you don’t get to complain about the result
