They just need look at Farage then vote the opposite. Anything else is madness.
I prefer to vote based on what I believe based on my own knowledge and experience. fudge what Farage or any other plum thinks.

If you vote remain because it's a considered decision then fine. If you vote remain just because Farage is leave then you're a moron.

I put my X to leave.

Lots of reasons why but mostly because in having taught European Law for c 17 years, it is clearly true that if one allows 60% of one's laws in the form of rules, regulations and directives (usually in the form of Statutory Instruments - not Acts of Parliament - but still binding law) to override one's own Acts of Parliament, judicial decisions and manifesto commitments, then one can no longer describe one's own country as sovereign or independent.

Pooling sovereignty is still loss of sovereignty.

I put my X in the remain box.

I want more integration rather than less, I have no issue with the creation of a US of E.

I work with people from all over the world on a daily basis and co-operation is the way forward.

Isolationism has never ever been a successful move for any country.

Won't be on here later but my X will be for remain as will the wifes.

She is a mortgage advisor and turkeys wouldn't vote for Xmas would they? That being said even without we would both be in the vote remain camp. I really haven't heard a single coherent argument to change my mind.

I voted to leave - the best actual argument for me that the EU is not working especially well, is that we are having this referendum in the first place and a sizeable amount of people want out.

Also I have seen after the scots referendum that if you don't get the result you want, you can just bang on about the subject forever and try to get another referendum and claim your view is still the right one.

I was being trite re 'revolution' but what we are seeing is demands for independence - whether by the Scots, Catalans etc.

It's not being 'melodramatic' or 'bollocks' (sic). It's fact. Whoever wins tomorrow c 50% seemingly want independence for this country. It won't go away.

So rather than trying to fix the EU we leave it, isolate ourselves and head towards a period of economic downturn without trade deals.

Sounds well thought out.

Look at the cost of living in Switzerland or Norway and compare it to the UK.

In Switzerland the cost of meat is so excessive that people smuggle it in from France and Germany ffs.

I voted 'Remain'.

It was a tough call but I suspect my last minute change of heart will be replicated up and down the country.

The 'Remain' campaign may have had a difficult task and may have run an appalling campaign but when push came to shove, 'Leave' lacked credibility and, as is often the way in such referenda, guarantees.
It's a shame that you felt the need to distrust your natural gut instincts because of a few petty, hate-filled remainers scaremongering. But I suppose that is democracy - your right to choose. It's just a shame that those voting remain are practically voting to give away that right.

But I won't critique any of whom who have voted. Why would I? I hate the EU - an institution that hates freedom of choice!

Comparison countries have TINY populations. Their road network together is not 1/10 of the UK's . Iceland has like TWO hospitals! Comparisson is void of any credibility. If you want to compare to a country outside Europe the Ukraine is the most similar (minus Russia of course)

Election law does not allow publication of anything that might seek to influence a voter whilst polling stations are open. My opinion is far too weighty to allow me to say.

It's called purdah. The term ‘purdah’ is in use across central and local government to describe the period of time immediately before elections or referendums when specific restrictions on the activity of civil servants are in place. The terms ‘pre-election period’ and ‘period of sensitivity’ are also used.

I'm in one at the moment!
