As PRW went to press this week, a number of opinion polls were showing the ‘Leave' and ‘Remain' campaigns neck and neck. Others were showing 'leave' edging ahead.
Our own readers' poll found half were in favour of staying in the European Union (EU), but the ‘undecided' types could make all the difference, as they could in the wider polls.
The ‘Remain' camp has made much of the economic rationale – domestic and global – for staying put, arguing that UK trade with the EU will be severely damaged if we do a ‘Brexit'.
The ‘Leavers' reject this, highlighting the ability of companies to do business if we exit and warning that staying in the EU risks being swamped by economic migrants – and possibly worse – through Brussels' ‘open border' policy.
If the UK does decide to leave the EU, will we find ourselves isolated, politically and economically? Other countries in the region, such as Norway, seem to do OK while not being paid-up members of the Brussels club, so would our exit make us worse or better off?
For many on the 23rd it will be a case of voting for the lesser of two evils, or of ‘heart ruling head'. Many will have made up their minds either way long before David Cameron gained some concessions from EU leaders earlier this year.
Several weeks ago I expressed the hope that UK voters would be offered a coherent debate, one that would inform their ultimate decision. Perhaps this was always going to be wishful thinking, given what's at stake.
Fear, rather than rational argument, has been stoked from both sides. Some of the ‘Leave' campaign's focus on immigration has been particularly unpleasant.
Acknowledging there is an element of ‘damned if we do/damned if we don't', I think we should stay in the EU, for the sake of business and security. It is not perfect, but I think we are better off in; a fragmented Europe doesn't help anyone.
And if we vote to leave? The UK will doubtless soldier on, although I suspect the future will be a lot less clear.
