The UK should just leave the EU. The UK and the continental EU have divergent agendas and different spheres of influence. The EU would be better off without the UK (less haggling, less exceptionalism). Germany seems to be the only country interested in fostering the EU. IMO, the real EU breaker would be a Frexit.

They need to do what's best for the UK.

If leave does end up winning (as I hope they do), I hope the Canadian government is smart enough to get in there and try to fill some of the trade and other gaps left by the EU. Thanks to Schengen, the UK has had no other choice but to clamp down on other sources of immigration, making it more difficult for those outside the zone that the UK would probably prefer to have. We should try to renew some of that old Commonwealth spirit, as we still share a great deal of history and culture with them.

The EU doesn't need the UK. Let them go.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

My issues with the whole EU concept: Each country funnels Billions into the EU to fund it. The EU leaders aren't elected, they can impose whatever law they want and fine you if you do not comply, they can restrict trade deals if another EU member opposes it if they also offer that product/service (even if it is at a considerably high cost) . Basically a select few have power and the people don't have any voice or say in the matter.

The EU is a failed project. Countries must give up sovereignty to "the beast".
Take back your sovereignty, UK!

It's actually the UK.
They were never part of the euro currency, but are a part of the EU.
Hopefully, they will exit from this beast system.

This is a pretty cool idea actually. Australia, Canada and UK should do some NAFTA type thing so folks can freely work/live/travel between those places, since they've already got similar social programs setup.

Those three should just hook up with the Russians for support and before you know it, the US will help them.
