    I think the UK should vote for BREXIT
    There will be an economic reaction but No Pain No Gain

    My layman feelings about the EU is not unlike some expert views that we read on the net ... basically it makes Germany richer and the poorer countries in the EU are negatively affected.
    Why should UK pay their huge membership fees, be controlled by the EU laws, and risk being forced to admit workers from the poorer EU member countries to work within the UK borders?

    Personally, I am more interested in any possible JOHOR, SABAH or SARAWAK exit from Malaysia than Brexit.

    Many would agree with you. so do I

    "will be an economic reaction"
    I suppose there would be, Soros has already bet on it .....the concern I suppose would be, 'How far & wide will the pain spread'?

    "makes Germany richer"
    Oh, there's so much more I could say of this , Ah! but 'conspiracy theories' have such a limited audience here ....Let me just say that, the 'New Order' had learnt that one need not resort to costly wars to have control.....there are other ways

    However, when all else fails, they will still take you to War!

    The last Scotland referendum, I bet with an ex-colleague that Scotland will remain, I won a nice dinner at Ledbury, Notting Hill..

    I don't want to bet this time because Brexit is more complicated. However, my gut feel is UK will remain in EU.

    General public won't too bother and probably don't care about the long term gain or short term gain to the country. They are more concerned about what will impact them like the sharp depreciation of pound sterling when Brexit happens. The job loss due to differential tariff, the shrinking size of business pie as UK will be subject to taxes ad duties when the country is no longer have easy access to a common European market, etc, are all immediate concerns that affect them.

    Here is a rather easy to read article from LSE (London School of Economics) http://cep.lse.ac.uk/pubs/download/EA022.pdf

    Personally, I want UK to exit. The depreciation of pound sterling is something that I would like to see it happens in near future, for a reason that is no need to tell...

    Staying on Brexit, thought you might want to know this....

    "Betting companies are overwhelmingly confident that the pro-EU camp will win, although the odds they offer for pro-EU gambles have narrowed in recent days......A "Brexit barometer" compiled by Ladbrokes gave "Remain" a 73-percent chance of winning compared to just 27 percent for "Leave" on Friday."

    The SUN's editorial could very well be a game changer....Looks like Rupert Murdoch has comes out publicly in support for Brexit… [Seems that he has never been wrong on an election result since 1979]

    "When The Dragon Roars"

    "Following a China-ASEAN meeting in the southern Chinese city of Yuxi, an ASEAN statement was issued by Malaysia's Foreign Ministry that expressed deep concerns over tensions in the South China Sea, however just hours later the statement was mysteriously retracted."

    "It is unusual for ASEAN to employ such strong language over any regional issue given divisions"

    The answer was revealed by Indonesia..

    " An Indonesian Foreign Ministry spokesman said the initial statement was a "media guideline" which had been prepared for a planned press conference for the conclusion of the meeting. However, because of the meeting dynamics where the meeting extended a few hours past schedule, the press conference was canceled and a number of ASEAN FMs had to leave immediately.. "

    " The paper estimated that sterling could plunge as much as 15 percent, which would push up inflation to 4 percent -- double the BOE's target. IMF officials also discussed more fundamental economic issues for the U.K., including low productivity growth, the record current-account deficit and high levels of household debt."

    http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2...n-eu-blackmail

    15% !! I'm looking at 20% and above.... Pound sterling to MYR rate is about 5.9 now , how much is 15-20% savings from the weakening of pound sterling .. .

    Well, when this brexit really happen next week (hopefully it happens), this will certainly give heart attack to many parents who has hedge their MYR to pound sterling earlier for the kid scholing fee anticipating of the weakening of MYR ...
