I suggest that it will be not in UK's favor to stay in the EU further. Global information breakthrough took place relatively recently, and according to the geographical positions, GB is kinda 'isolated' country. And this sort of 'isolation' is their charm, something that Englishes try to preserve, if you understand what I say about. Personally I understand it pretty well, some kind of private thing in people's mentality. Note the fact that if you can explain to someone that learning English is useful since it is an international language and helps in communicating with the outside world, you don't even need to explain it to an English - the fact that the whole planet must learn their native language sits deeply in British minds. At least think about the fact that it is practically the only EU country that preserved strength of its national currency against Euro and has made it quite effective. Also it is more difficult to get Visa to UK than to another European country. So I believe that all this old and solid social background brings its reflection in all spheres of social life, from cultural to political/public views. In my opinion, whatever people say, UK is a strong country, more solid on the background of the whole EU. And the Europe, let's be sincere, was benefiting and in some aspects devouring opportunities created by the UK. And even despite all cons mentioned by you guys, I think GB will all in all benefit if Brexit takes place after all. To be honest, I would also vote LEAVE were I British.
