Gerry , If Britain opt a FULL out instead a Full IN as Cameron promised 2017 then of course the Royal Community will be splitted !
Don’t ask how but Scotland just will do it ..the same as Britain is doing with the E.U. !

We are not anxious and defeatist about your EU, we just don’t need or want it, it’s not rocket science.

You seem to be under the impression that you speak for the majority & from a high moral ground & its just the British that do not want your EU, nothing could be further from the truth.

There is a very good item on Euractiv about a poll carried out by your European Commission that showed on 12% of people in Europe consider themselves ‘European’ and only 14% actually want the EU and those that voted for pro EU MEP’s did so because they stood for their party, not for the EU, look it up you may learn something before you make yourself look foolish again.

Your post wilfully misunderstands the sceptical attitude and point of view held by many in the EU, not just the UK.
To say that EU sceptic views are hidden and deep rooted, is frankly nonsense. You would need to live in a cave in the mountains with no communications for years to truthfully say that.
I am not going to repeat the reasons on here which have been repeated for years by many more articulate than me. However, do study British history since WW1 and try to understand why giving up sovereignty and subsuming ourselves into a Union of 500 million plus (who are not necessarily like minded) makes us uneasy. Look at the talentless politicians that rule us from Brussels and then explain why our fears are so deep rooted they cannot be seen. Look at our Commission President who was responsible for the hidden corporate tax fiddles in his home country while prime minister and who admits when necessary just lie (ethics and morality should be important). Basics really

It does however open the mind to different subjects. And the truth is that nobody in Europe really understand why the Brits are so anxious and defeatist about being in the EU. They just can’t be reasoned with, it seems that the whole issue has got deep roots that are not visible on the surface. But in the end, you must make your own decisions. We all do.

Well, I would hold that result as there are a lot of myths repeated about how pro EU Scotland may be. Most of them put about by the SNP.
I speak as a Scot who finds feelings are fairly divided among those who give a shit, with a large percentage who really don’t care. I think you might find that we do not differ too much from the ‘English’

You know…
Winston Churchill is a founding father of the European Union and stated long ago that the British Union won’t be IN this ” Kind of the United States of Europe ” (Zürich 1947 ).

You and Burrows can freely vote for your Exit – your wish – but this does in no way end the Reunification long ago agreed – after everything was destroyed because of NSDAPs !

After we leave your antidemocratic EU trade will take place, people will still travel and the sun will still rise in the morning.

But all those retired Brits having a villa in Spain will be so “heavy” controlled on Spanish borders that they wish never voted for an out and i mean not only those borders through GBr !
Britain of course do the same with (eu) “Immigrants” !
Last Year I have seen on spanish Highways plenty of lefties so they will be sweept away in natural circumstances .
And some of their Villa be sold because of unaffordable tax circumstances .
