EU vote gets a mixed Rutherglen reaction
Locals remain undecided as vote draws near
Tomorrow sees Britain go to the polls to decide whether to stay in or out of the European Union.
For the past several months both the Remain and Leave camps have been battling to win votes on topics like the economy and immigration.
With polls suggesting a tight vote is in store we went to Rutherglen Main Street to ask voters what way they’d be casting their votes.
John Nicholls is still not sure which way he’ll vote.
He said: “I find it hard to believe the politicians on either side, so I won’t decide until I’m actually at the ballot box. It’s all very highfalutin and just figures being thrown out.” Tommy Gallagher had already voted. He said: “I’ve already voted to stay in. I’m an SNP supporter and it’s better that we stay in and are involved that way. Although we need to control immigration more.” Stuart Ferguson was leaning towards Brexit He said: “I’m still on the fence, but I’m leaning towards out. I think a change has been a long time coming, and nothing is going to change the way things are now – it could be worse, it could be better, but it’s worth trying.
Aireen Davis has been unimpressed by the Remain campaign.
She said: “I’m not sure, but I feel a change is as good as anything else. I think Britain has survived on its own in the past and can do so again. I’m not entirely sure about either side, but the government has been scaremongering to get us to stay in.”
