So the EU referendum voting date is coming up and so far it looks like the UK is heading for an exit, which is going to cause a mess in politics seeing how the conservatives are for staying in the EU and for making it work

anyway what's everyone else's opinion on it

All in all it's up to each individual country to consider their membership of the EU, there's a lot that can be said for both parties and opinions. Though Britain has been the "odd one out" within the EU countries on a number of topics, and I can only imagine these kind of discussions to start gaining traction in other countries if the UK is allowed to redefine their membership agreements under the threat of leaving.

Aside from that, it'd be likely the UK would be sustaining some negative hits on the topic of global trade agreements and import/export as well as the possibility of having to deal with a couple thousand more refugees crossing the canal if France doesn't play nice and expels the border guards currently deployed on the mainland, as that's a pretty hot topic over there right now.

If the UK leaves the EU, I hope Scotland breaks free from the shackles and joins in themselves.
Best case scenario, hope they don't leave.

The arguments I've seen put forward so far are:
  • We're safer in the EU! Vote 'no' to leaving the EU!
  • We could be better off without the EU! Vote 'yes' to leaving the EU!
I'll take the safer option any day, and after speaking with elders who remember what trading across countries and the economic status for international businesses was like before the EU, I'll be voting to stay.

Sweden should emmideatly leave EU, it has only caused shit.
Our borders are not guarded and trucks from Denmark and Germany can pass on through and we dont even know what they are carrying.

There are soooo many criminals that smuggle shit thanks to this broken system.

And so many illigeal immegreants get easy acces to Sweden, and god knows we have enough of those!

Dude, our borders are completely open thanks to EU.
Anyone with a fake ID can just waltz inside.
Denmark and Sweden have imposed border controls to restrict the number of migrants coming into their countries—the latest blow to the EU’s passport-free travel zone.




After Sweden imposed photo ID checks along its border with Denmark today (Jan. 4), Denmark decided to tighten its own border with Germany(paywall). Denmark’s integration minister Inger Stojberg said her country was “faced with a serious risk to public order and internal security because a very large number of illegal immigrants may be stranded in the Copenhagen area.”
You also need a visa if you're outside of the EU, and being out of the EU won't prevent fake passports from being made. You're being incredibly naive.

That is true.
But if now Sweden leaves the EU our borders will have much more controll, we'll have more papers that are necessary to enter. Even if a Dane is gonna enter through Öresundsbron he needs a bunch of papers and not just some fancy detector device that we have now.

Seriusly. You can just buy a plastic detector that opens the Gates at our border to denmark.

These are sold on the black market everywhere making it 100 times more easy for smugglers and immegreants to enter our borders.

You're being incredibly naive.
No need to start throwing jabs at me dude.

So you're willing to put the livelihoods of 20,000 people at risk because you don't like foreigners? It'd take hours to get out of Malmo if your proposed plan was put into action.

Without a citation I'm going to have to call this bullshit.

Calling someone naive isn't an insult, dude. Just a speculation.

If UK votes yas and gets out, more countries will try to do the same. EU has become a big bully to those that wish to do things other way, forcing immigrant quotas and whatnot. It's not what it was like before and definetly not what it was meant to be
