Some final thoughts, and why you should vote, or not vote…
– Leave, if for you the democratic argument does trump all else, then do it. If you lose then you strengthen the hand of Cameron or anyone else to push for stronger reforms (and maybe) a reversal of trajectories. See Michael (“non-dom”) Ashcroft.
– Remain, even if you don’t feel strongly, not voting will change history in ways that are likely to be profound and which remain unquantified. Most claims that Leave will bring specific social benefits are thin to non-existent. See Chris Dillow.
– Don’t know, the best rule of thumb I can think to share is if you don’t know, vote no. You can only Leave once, and for my money, there’s been no convincing argument as to why now?
