Euro gone from 1.23 last week to 1.30 today. If that's not a sign that we will remain I don't know what is.

Let's be honest. Anyone actually making the effort to go to a polling station and vote Remain aren't going to be even slightly racist or xenophobic. I know whose side I'd rather be on.

I wouldn't tar people voting exit as being either of those things.

They are fooled into blaming the genuine hardship / frustrations which are the effect of global capitalism / tory government on immigrants themselves. Then people have been misled into thinking that Brexit will lead to reduced immigration (couldn't in any meaningful way as our ponzi-scheme economy needs immigrants).

@Crackajack "frustrations which are the effect of global capitalism"
Then why not hit back at British capitalism? This is our chance.

It has been proven that the majority of people who are against immigrants are, by some definition, racists.

I've tried to give other reasons for voting out.

Cameron’s EU deal back in February was largely to continue to allow the whorehouse that is the City of London – his real employer, of course – to continue to behave in the manner to which it has become accustomed. This assurance that the banks will not be regulated and will continue to be money-launderers for global crime is the most important aspect of the ‘deal’ and it is not being talked about at all in the mainstream media. Instead, as always, ‘migration’ is the great distraction.

Can you give any evidence or background to this?

Deregulation of the movement of money and more regulation on the movement of people. Real fucking conspiracy theory stuff.

Was there deregulation in the movement of money? Can you provide something to back that up?

The housing and planning bill. Could make thousands of people homeless. It's not "student paranoia stuff".
