Many older people who live in the UK are myopic, seeing immigration as the only threat and that’s why they favor a Brexit. They are blind to the UK’s enormous competitive weaknesses.

However, older UK expats, like myself, are more cosmopolitan. I’ll be 68 on May 12 but I’ll be voting with Britain’s youth to REMAIN in the EU.

The risks are real. Following a Brexit, I risk profile the return of the Far Right (starting in France) and the domino collapse of Europe’s democracies, the vaporizing of the EU bureaucracy and new bilateral alliances (like pre-WW1). Greed to protect trade and secure natural resources will lead to WWIII. Russia, China and Turkey will seek new geopolitical gains and America will sit on her hands (with yet another lame duck President).

Younger British voters want to remain part of a leaner EU. To repeat, I’ll be 68 on May 12 but I’ll vote with the youngsters that Britain’s Stronger in Europe.

UK expats can envision the doomsday scenario resulting from a Brexit. Whereas, older UK residents are myopic and can only see immigration as the threat.

Happy to debate.
