Brexit: Remain or Leave?

Kate Lester Founder, Diamond Logistics

I believe there is a complete split between UK businesses with regards to the referendum.

Danvers Baillieu COO, Hide my Ass!

The business people I know are split on both sides of the argument.

Peter Behrans Co-Founder, RateSetter

I think people are convinced that there will be big problems associated with leaving.

Rupert Evans MD, TranslateMedia

I believe it is important that Britain stays in the EU for businesses like mine. The single trading market would become fractured and it would be harder for us to operate internationally.

Tobi Schneidler Founder, Bouncepad

I am absolutely for staying in the EU and protecting this relationship.

Danvers Baillieu COO, Hide my Ass!

I think I ultimately come down on the side of staying in the EU.

Ruzbeh Bacha Founder, City FALCON

My prediction for the referendum is that we will stay in.

Kate Lester Founder, Diamond Logistics

It maybe 52/48 for.

Fraser Smeaton Co-Founder, Morphcostumes

I think Britain will vote to stay in the European Union which I think will be a very good thing.

Danvers Baillieu COO, Hide my Ass!

I think if Britain stays in the EU we will send a strong message to Europe that we have had the debate within the UK, that there are reservations about the way that the EU is being run.

Peter Behrans Co-Founder, RateSetter

I think it is incredibly hard to see where Britain’s future role in Europe is going to look like because I think neither of our major political parties really knows how they will play it should Britain leave Europe. I think various recent events have made Britain more likely to leave Europe and I think the demographics of the people that are actually going to vote makes it more likely to leave Europe than anyone might have previously assumed.
