Lo­cals re­main un­de­cided as vote draws near

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

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.”
