After months of campaigning and debating, British people will head to the polls today for a historic vote over whether or not Britain should remain as part of the European Union or go it alone.

The vote, commonly referred to as ‘Brexit’, could have serious repercussions around the world – especially if they decide to leave.

Now, the Queen has made a rare public comment on the issue asking her dinner companions at an event as very pointed question, seeming to indicate exactly how she feels about the vote.

“Give me three good reasons why Britain should be part of Europe.”

While the Queen doesn’t officially have any political views or alliances, it is understood that behind closed doors she is fiercely protective about Britain’s interests and policies.

The vote is thought to be a close race, with some polls predicting it could come down to the wire with the votes of British people living in Australia making the final decision.

It’s not just Britain who will have to deal with the final outcome either. Australia will also be affected by the vote, with Australian High Commissioner to the UK Alexander Downer warning that our trade relationship with Britain could be at risk if they decide to leave the EU.

“The word is uncertainty,” Mr Downer told News Corp. “If Britain was to leave the EU, there would just be a question mark about, well, what’s going to happen? What happens next? What sort of arrangements?”

One of the main reasons many British people want to leave the EU is so they can have more say of border protection and immigration. As it stands, anyone who is a resident in an EU country can move freely in and out of the UK and can eventually claim welfare payments from the British system.

They are arguing it is putting too much strain on their economy and society and that there is too much risk involved thanks to the increase in terrorist attacks across Europe.

We’d love to hear your insight on this issue today.

Do you think Britain should vote ‘yes’ and remain as part of the European Union? Or should they vote ‘no’ and leave?

  1. Headline should read: “Irrelevant 90 year old woman says nothing of value” Liz Saxe Coburg Gotha spoke from her 64 bedroom council house today on a subject dear to her heart. ” All my children have grown up on welfare and only in a Tory independent England can that continue” she said while her equally decrepit husband tried to remember where the toilet was. Liz (104) continued ” I came from an Immigrant family, illiterate and couldnt speak English, look at us now, in just two hundred years some of us can be understood by the public and we have billions stored away in tax havens” Lizzie(97) broke off to admonish one of her numerous relatives for slouching around in a ridiculous uniform. ” I have to slouch” Billious complained, ” all the unearned the medals prick my nipples” . Lizzie wanted to know who had let her eldest boy child (Charliehorse) (81) out of the cupboard where he has been kept waiting for the last 30 years. ” He shouldnt vote” she confided, “he’s a bloody inbred idiot”. ” Bloody chinks, slant eyed bastards” roared Prip, (75) her consort and part time tailor’s dummy. Although there was no discernable reason for this outburst Lizzie(64) took it calmly and instructed her personal servants to “beat him up later for interrupting” . We sall leave this charming family now dear reader secure in the knowledge that onely the deserving live on welfare and that the mentally ill and challenged are well cared for. In certain postcodes anyway.
