"Britain's EU referendum could lead to the break-up of the EU itself, Sweden's foreign minister has warned.

Margot Wallstrom told the BBC a domino effect of demands for referendums and requests for preferential terms by member states could follow.

"The spill-over effect will be unfortunately felt, deeply felt," she said. "It would be bad either way," she added."

No need to worry about us getting a raw deal from the EU. It probably won't survive and if it does, it will have to change beyond all recognition and we will get anything we ask for as long as we don't have chumps like Cameron negotiating, who ask for nothing.

Margot Wallstrom is a very perceptive woman. The EU's days are numbered anyway, regardless of the referendum result.

If we leave, others will hold their own referendums and follow us, the Eurozone will collapse.

If we remain, others will hold their own referendums and leave of their own accord, the Eurozone will collapse.

Better to be ahead of the game and be the first to go, rather than be left behind in a downward-spiralling EU sinking deeper and deeper into crisis.

Yes, it is finished. The migrant crisis wil restart, the Greek bailout will come soon, then the EU Army plans will be rolled out, then the Italian banking crisis will occur. It is just one disaster after another queued up for us after Jun 23.

I don't recall the source but the EU is looking to ban referendums on membership.

Well, what a surprise. Things aren't going their way so they change the rules in their favour. Some democracy. The sooner we're out the better.
