Yesterday, upon the stair..

Have you noticed how the BRExit campaign seems to focus almost exclusively on the things they don't want (which is easy) rather than the things they do want (requires thought) When you do finally pin them down to concrete things they actually want then it's fairly trivial to show that membership of the EU (or any union) is a really good way of delivering those things. (immigration controls, financial security, job opportunities, less wars, more global influence etc..)

In my experience, this negative approach to debating often betrays a position that is largely based on emotion and not one that's based on reason and evidence.
