I have made my views on the European Union referendum vote very clear in this space over the last month, so the only thing I have left to say is to call on the winning and losing sides to respect the result and hopefully this will be the end of the issue. I would not like to see a repeat of the Scottish referendum result which really didn´t resolve anything: Scotland has a nationalist government which is pro-independence even though it voted stay.

I don´t think the referendum has shown Britain in a good light; there has been too much false information but at least Thursday's referendum should mean that the issue of EU membership in Britain is finally resolved. I do not live in Britain but I would urge Britain to stay because a British pullout would have a damaging affect on the lives of expats in Spain. I also believe that it is better for Britain to be a part of something which one day could work, rather than being on the sidelines.

I remember my parents saying that the European Union issue had got out of hand: they voted for a Common Market back in 1975 and now we have a European Union of nations. But I think I would sum up my views with the following: Britain has the fifth biggest economy in the world, so if it isn't broken then why fixit. I believe that Britain can have a bright future within the EU because Britain has proved a point with the referendum. Change is needed and the EU must take note.

I said we wanted our country back and we have got it. Hope other countries follow suit which could lead to a new common market without any of the existing stupidity.

Given that the EU as it is now has been around since 1993,twenty three years and you admit that ONE DAY IT COULD WORK,just how many more years WOULD YOU GIVE IT TO WORK.? I was stationed in Germany in 1975,just before we left for a tour of Northern Ireland which left us with nine dead and five badly injured and I too voted yes to stay in the COMMON Market,I did not vote for the United States 0F European that it has now become and I will vote no tomorrow but the good news for you and all those expats that only give a damn for their pensions and health care and not the UK is that I think that the vote will be to remain and God help us all.
