The referendum made simple

Some people like to talk politics, others don't. I've made a separate forum so you can post if you want or ignore it if you don't. Hope this is an acceptable compromise.

The BBC has a useful article which explains all about the referendum and answers some of the frequently asked questions.

Excellent Kay!

Well worth a visit as it covers a great many points.

As we know there are the known knowns and the known unknowns, the worry, as always, are the unknown unknowns. :?

Thanks, David. Despite being politically active when I was younger, I find it hard these days to take an interest in all the shenanigans, and it's hard to tell the parties apart sometimes. They all seem the same, although perhaps Corbyn is a bit different.

However, this is a very important issue, especially for expats, and I thought the article pretty much got me up to speed on the situation. I know how I'm going to vote! Mind you, it doesn't affect Dave and me personally too much from the work/travel point of view. If the UK leave the EU, we'll still have our Irish/EU passports.
