What's your thoughts on Brexit?

I strongly believe that a mistake. What's your opinion and why?

    I think that the entire debate is either a proxy for Boris Johnson to challenge for the premiership or for Nigel Farage to tap into the undercurrent of racism that exists and ask for a change to the voting system in the House of Commons.

    I don't think in any way shape or form, that this actually have anything to do with, or is motivated by the UK's relationship with Europe.

    From a political aspect I agree with you, but as a British person, the level of racism in this country against Eastern Europeans and people from the Middle East in particular is staggering and really is the driving force behind why the argument has gained any traction and why it is such a close fought issue.

    From a logical perspective staying in the EU is a no-brainer, but racism isn't logical.
    You will come to a place where the streets are not marked. Some windows are lighted but mostly they're darked. A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin. Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in? How much can you lose? How much can you win?

    Well, as of almost 5 in the morning in London, they are almost definitely leaving. This can't be good.

    This is a dumb idea. They choose immigration over not just their economy, but the world economy also.

    It is several weeks on and so far the world hasn't ended. It is also entirely possible that they will never act on the referendum. Seems to me like the biggest issue stems from either Northern Ireland or Scotland leaving the UK.

    This is a stupid idea, and Northern Ireland should be free, and the entire notion of Brexit is stupid. The EU is trying to keep peace, and for the sake of racism Britain is trying to leave, and that's just dumb. Racism is a horrible thing to leave the EU on, just like it's horrible to not allow Saudi women to drive.

    Brexit is only one of the things that show us how xenophobic the world is becoming recently, just one of the more visible. It also illustrates what happens through acting on incomplete or incorrect information. Personally, I am sad to see it happen because we have come a long way in international cooperation in Europe. Then again other countries have demonstrated that that can still happen without being part of the union. I just hope that the contracts still facilitate trade and travel. And that people everywhere will realize that deporting people who have lived in a place most of their lives is a stupid idea.
    My first (and in some places still active) screen name was Ellena.
    This became Ellster.
    Elster is the German word for magpie.
    Therefore I am sometimes called Mag Pie. Although my name is not Mag. But I do like pie.
