OPINION: Decision of a generation looms as Brexit vote registration ends May 16

Brexit e


BrexitTHE decision of a generation is upon us, and a Brexit is likely to have disastrous implications, particularly for expats in Spain.

From Almeria to Alhaurin and Granada to Gibraltar, our homes, jobs and entire way of life would be at risk.

Such a leap into the dark could lead to many of us having to close down our companies, leave our jobs and ultimately go home.

It could lead to the closure of the Gibraltar border and a serious knock on effect for the entire Costa del Sol and further afield.

Not our words… the words of world leaders, economists and politicians.

There are NO EXCUSES… it is time to register and vote to stay INSIDE Europe where, after all, we have all chosen to live.

For all its faults, being a key part of Europe is vital for the UK and all British citizens.

  1. The OP is an excellent publication,and surely is better than this scare mongering one sided un named ,
    Opinion column.I would expect such a highly regarded Newspaper to offer its readers both sides of the Brexit debate. Vote Leave,cue Fred.

    • Cue a comment regarding a little noticed one-sidedness. Britain has seventy five MEPs, twenty two of which are UKIP supporters. So, almost a third of the people sent to fight our corner in Brussels are people who’s avowed aim is to take Britain out of the EU. Does anyone believe those representatives are bothered to try and influence legislation in Britains favour? Of course not. If they actually won anything for Britain, they would be sabotaging their main purpose. While we grind our teeth at the ineffectuality of the EU, perhaps we should take a closer look at the real enemy within.
      It’s also worth noting that those UKIP sympathisers, represent themselves in Brussels as being from other camps, even Greens in some cases. Liars and scoundrels all.

  2. Josef Goebbels grandson you most definately are not. His PR always contained more than a grain of truth. The only changes in the EU have been undemocratic and in the interests of big business. Maastrict is an excellent example as is the election of an ugly old tax fraudster as president of this cartel. The enlargement of the EU introducing racist, Catholic dominated States that have sucked up vast amounts of western European money and dumped their unemployed on countries like Germany/Netherlands and the UK and then send vast amounts of money back home – we Europeans know who the enemy is and the idiots who support them – turkeys indeed.
