I have followed closely all the comments from knowledgeable experts and pundits who forecast doom and despair if we leave the EU.

Of course the oft-repeated quotes of apocalypse that emanate from the well-heeled elite club of Goldman Sachs, the CBI, the OECD, Mark Carney, the IMF, the American President (no less!), etc, even our own Treasury gurus want to preserve the status quo.

Yet I’m amazed that they cannot see (or choose to ignore) the fact that the ordinary folk know full well from their everyday living that their country and locality have changed out of all recognition through uncontrolled immigration – this is the big factor which will sway their thinking in the referendum, not the minutiae of economics. I am confident the majority of ordinary voters will vote to leave the EU.
