I think the Cameron scare tactics are disgraceful. We've all had years to see what is going on. It's been going down the pan. We need to get out and the EU will be knocking at the door immediately ....

From a local perspective, I believe that if we do ever manage to extricate ourselves the negatives will be....

There will be job losses within Hereford, particularly those within the agricultural industry.

The decision to leave will decimate the Hereford agricultural industry and obviously have a huge impact upon those employers who rely and want migrant labour.

There will be an affect upon the Buy to Let housing market and all those heavily mortgaged and reliant upon the shortage of housing. I believe many, particularly those who are dependant upon migrant occupation, will possibly face financial ruin.

Many small businesses dependant upon migrants spending their earnings will either go bust or have to quickly adapt to a very new market.

Families who become torn by our exit will face uncertainty particularly those who've settled in Hereford and see it as their home and this will probably create a surge in applications for British citizenship. A great deal of happiness for many families will cause considerable upset to them.

From an employers perspective, and only from their perspective once the cheap labour tap is turned off, they'll have to pay out more from their profits to get labour.

Employers will stop and pause before they invest in any future business expansion growth plan.



The positives for Hereford,,,,

Wages will go up.

Rents will drop.

Local people will stand a better chance of getting a job.

Housing for families will, in time become a little easier, particularly for the young people who wont be faced by huge rents.

New businesses created and adapted to this new market will emerge and new jobs will be created.

Every single public service will feel the impact and for once, in a very long time, some slack in the system will be created.

Many people within Herefordshire will become happier knowing that some control of immigration is back in our hands.

The urgent needs brought about by language issues will slowly disappear and the costs accompanying this problem will no longer be so pressing in Schools and many other public bodies.

The future Pension bill to local tax payers will be reduced.

Or are the Conservatives a fit party to run the country without the EU?


If the country votes to come out of the EU then a General Election should be held


Agree. If the public vote out then Cameron and his present governent cannot continue in office. A general election will have to be called. However all the main parties except UKIP are hell bent on keeping us in, and would therefore say, if they won with the usual minority of votes, they had a mandate to commit us once again to the EU. Let's chuck out the lot of them and get on to run our country with a decent democratic system representing the interests of its citizens and not the elite few and their donating corporations.

Britain sacrifices steel industry to curry favour with China




Britain's special relationship with China is becoming more expensive by the day. It now threatens to destroy the British steel industry, a foundation pillar of our manufacturing economy.


Britain is not alone. Most of Europe's steel foundries are heading for annihilation under the current EU trade regime, with unthinkable consequences through the network of European and British supply chains.


It is hard to pin down the exact moment when George Osborne's love affair with China turned into a Faustian Pact.


What we know is that the British government has for the last three years been blocking efforts by the EU to equip itself with the sort of anti-dumping weaponry used by Washington to confront China. 





EU getting some flak about South Wales steel .... Another headache for Cameron and Sajid Javid ....
