The EU Referendum. The Historical & Most Controversial Voting Event in History.

It’s been the most talked about event of the year. The EU Referendum. But just how important is the EU Referendum? Well I’ll tell you.

The EU Referendum, as we all know it, would be the biggest referendum for the European  Union, in which all citizens of Europe, for instance, the UK, Gibraltar, Scotland, Northern Ireland and many other parts of the United Kingdom would cast their vote on whether to Leave the European Union, or to Remain in the European Union. I stayed up until 7:35 AM this morning after I went to bed as I was eager to find out the final result from the EU Referendum and I was one of those people today who would not sleep until I found out the final result from the EU Referendum.

I am absolutely pleased that the Leave side of the EU Referendum campaign won the vote to leave the EU and I have absolutely no problem whatsoever with anyone who chose to vote Leave or Remain and I absolutely have no problem with anyone who chose to not vote in the EU Referendum.

I was somewhat surprised of the news that the Prime Minister, David Cameron, had announced his resignation from his position as Prime Minister for the United Kingdom but after I woke up to the news of his resignation and that he would be leaving his position as Prime Minister in October, I went from being tired and not alert to being wide awake and fully alert.

You can say I was surprised but wasn’t shocked. However, I am pleased that the Leave side of the campaign won the vote to Leave the European Union.

It was obvious from day one that the EU Referendum wouldn’t just be the historical voting event in history, but that it would also be the most controversial Referendum in history.

There were always going to be those certain stages where xenophobic, racist, and even homophobic comments would crop up and cause a series of bumps in the road, as well as other forms of social abuse online.

Of course there was and still is a huge amount of backlash from both sides of the campaign, as there have been a large number of comments that are deemed racist based around immigration, but even so, I’ve been keeping a close eye on Facebook to find out how everyone else reacted to the United Kingdom leaving the EU.

I will be honest, I voted to Leave the EU for a number of reasons and it’s not in any way about immigration at all just before there is any chance of someone jumping the gun at why I chose to leave.

I chose to Leave the EU because:

  1. Of the lack of money being funded for our National Health Service, our voices not being heard, including a government that is corrupt because they take advantage of our human rights and tell us what we can and cannot do.
  2. Our human rights are being taken away from us if we chose to remain, for instance, by remaining, we won’t get much of a say over what we can and cannot do in the UK if we chose to Remain.
  3. The lack of policing on our streets, our safety not being taken into account and the fact that our government and the EU are failing to crack down on the crime rates. For instance, the crime rates are at an all-time high due to gun and knife crimes being committed, not to mention the leniency of sentencing where a prisoner’s amount of years behind bars are concerned. Every day there are a number of reports being published of multiple stabbings taking place, including gun crimes, and also crimes where technological devices such as smartphones, tablets, televisions, even the latest smartwatches being stolen.

Obviously, this article will receive mixed reactions and quite possibly a lot of criticism and I’m not in any shape or form going to deny that, but I have absolutely no intention of causing offence based on my reasons for choosing to leave the European Union, so I do sincerely apologise if you are offended.

Every single day, I always keep myself up to date on the news, even when I’m not publishing any articles, as I always make sure to never miss a single thing. I watch the news very closely 24/7 so that I can get a clear understanding of the news, as well as to what goes on in the world every single day.

I will make it perfectly clear I have absolutely no problem with anyone who chose to vote to Leave or Remain and I also have absolutely no problem with anyone who chose to not vote in the EU Referendum.

This is my first ever time voting, but I respect everyone’s decisions entirely if you chose to vote to Leave or Remain, and I also respect everyone’s decisions for if you chose to not vote in the EU Referendum.

Did you vote to Leave or Remain in the EU Referendum? If so, please feel free to submit feedback. Your feedback is much appreciated.

  1. The main issue for me was the EU agreeing to secretive trade talks with the US. Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP) is an agreement inimical to law.
    Corporate lobbyists provide input to this agreement to bind the public to their onerous needs.
    The fact that this supranational body would agree to this disgusting betrayal of the “rule of law”, proved their goals are hostile to my well-being and the well-being of working people.

    Furthermore when you look at the history of the EU, you find the US (CIA) and European oligarchs with Nazi sympathisers created the EU.

    In effect the EU’s hidden eventual goal is a Europe wide superstate. It has tried to achieve this by deceit and obfuscation.

  2. Everyone assumes the ones who voted leave is due to racism because that’s what the media told them. Its so much more from giving aid to countries who mismanaged their finances and leaves UK citizens with crippling taxes to being told what to do by silly rich bureaucrats who know nothing about UK life.

    Of course everyone is onlying thinking of hoildiays, houses and free movement…. no such thing as free movement. Instead of blaming the older generation for taking away their future and thinking the know it all, remain younger voters need to stop listening to the media and really think about the situation.

    Of course France and Co will not stop trading with us they can’t. There are things they will be dependent on the UK for. All this hysteria yesterday caused by the media.

    How dare EU leaders say the UK held the EU for ransom when they have controlled, threatened and bullied the UK for so many years.

    And a second referendum is ridiculous… this is how democracy works and you can still work and live in other countries just get a visa. Its not like you have to save a ridiculous amount to get it like other countries who’s currency is something like 7:1.

    Everything will work out eventually for the best.
