Penny Mordaunt MP,

agrees Brexit
Currently, unless we have concrete intelligence, we may have suspicions about an individual coming to our shores, we can't turn them back if they have an EU passport ... Staying in is a gamble, because this is only going to get worse.

After much thought, my personal decision is to vote to leave the EU; not because I think David Cameron did a bad job, but because I believe that on balance we could forge a better future outside.

Ian Botham, Former England Test cricketer

agrees Brexit
It is insane that because we are in the EU we do not have the freedom to reach our own agreements to trade freely with … emerging powers like China … We have lost the right to govern ourselves, to make our own laws and to choose who comes here.

Jacob Wallenberg, Chairman of Investor AB

disagrees Brexit
Brexit would be very negative for Europe. The axis of London-Paris-Berlin changing to Paris-Berlin would be a significant change to the core of Europe.

Alexander Temerko, Deputy Chairman, OGN Group

disagrees Brexit
With half a billion consumers, the EU is the world’s largest market. To remain influential as a champion of free trade at a time when agreements are being hammered out with the US and Japan, the UK needs to be negotiating from inside the club.

Jim Rogers, Co-Founder, the Quantum Fund

disagrees Brexit
If the UK left the European Union, London's dominance of foreign exchange including euro trading would gradually decline and then end as the flows moved to Asia and other European capitals.

Alison Woollard, Biochemist, Oxford University

Win Bischoff, Ex-Chairman, Lloyds Bank

disagrees Brexit
London is really the most important financial center in Europe, and we benefit enormously by being part of Europe. An exit from Europe, wouldn’t be a cliff event, but over a period of time, market share will go to other centers.

Eddie Izzard, English stand-up comedian, actor, and writer.

disagrees Brexit
I’m back campaigning strongly on the EU referendum. It’s crazy to think we could be leaving. Churchill wouldn’t have done it. Running and hiding is not British. You have to be inside it to change it.

Julian Fellowes, English actor, novelist, film director and screenwriter, Conservative member of the House of Lords

agrees Brexit
I believe we should be out. It’s about philosophy, it’s about democracy, it’s about democracy versus autocracy … the European Union can’t be accountable because the elected MEPs have no real control over the Commission.

Sir Hugh Orde, Former chief constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland

disagrees Brexit
It is a post-imperial fantasy to claim that … Britain should cut itself off from our nearest neighbours and partners … Britain is safer and more secure in Europe than we would be out on our own.

Luke Johnson, Chairman of Risk Capital Partners. Weekly columnist for the Sunday Times

I worry that it [the EU] is a growing threat to our democracy, I think that we lack control over our own borders, I worry that with ever closer union we will be forced at some point into the euro zone which is clearly a failed project.

Sir Rocco Forte, Hotelier, chairman of luxury hotel chain Rocco Forte Hotels

agrees Brexit
If we went alone it would increase our reputation and clout in the world, not reduce it. The President of China came here because we're Britain, not because we're part of the EU.

Margot Parker MEP,

agrees Brexit
As a Catholic it appals me that the EU imposes huge tariffs on fish, foodstuffs and clothes that are made for example by workers in the poorer countries of Africa. The EU is … preventing developing countries from trading themselves out of poverty.

Alan Halsall, National Business for Britain Co-Chairman

As a businessman I know how important it is to keep a tight control over costs, but that doesn’t seem to be something that EU politicians understand. If we vote to leave ... we will be able to spend … money on our priorities here in the UK.

What is needed is a lot less red tape and bureaucracy … Whether that means renegotiating or exiting, I don’t think it [the EU] can carry on as it is. It’s a burden on our business.

The last thing Jeremy [Corbyn] needs to do is to undermine further the traditional Labour vote, much of which wishes to leave the EU. The referendum holds out an untold danger if another swathe of Labour voters depart to UKIP.
