Brexit - Split Decision

Now that campaigning has started in earnest ahead of the referendum on whether Britain stays in or exits the European Union is there any chance we might see a more balanced debate on the subject?

Now that campaigning has started in earnest ahead of the referendum on whether Britain stays in or exits the European Union is there any chance we might see a more balanced debate on the subject?

Unfortunately, we have not!

Propaganda might seem an extreme word to use but it seems perfectly apt in the context of the headlines we see screaming out from the main players on both sides. Over the last few weeks, the Chancellor of the Exchequer has said that 820,000 jobs would be lost and that house prices would plummet if Britain votes to leave. The Governor of The Bank of England has warned that the British economy would be affected and recession is inevitable. The other side claims that Britain hands over £350m a week to the European Union and that immigration is out of control and puts services such as the National Health Service under immense pressure.

No doubt Britain does hand over £350m a week but what is received back? Would 820,000 jobs really disappear or would change bring new opportunities for the workforce? Is it inevitable that Britain would go into recession or would people feel good about the change and see it as giving them the freedom to flourish?

Both sides are as bad as each other in this war of words, plucking headline 'facts and figures' and plastering them over newspapers, online and even on the side of buses does little to help the average man in the street to make up his mind which way to vote. It certainly does not provide the platform for a reasoned discussion.

The truth, of course, is that none of us know what will happen and only time will tell if the claims made turn out to be true.

So who will win? At the moment, it does appear to be too close to call. A sensible debate would have helped people understand the facts and help them make a considered decision. It seems that when they go to the polls tomorrow the British public will be left to vote with either their heads or their hearts.
