    It's a tough one to call, but in the end I doubt we'll leave the EU as it would be bad for everyone involved as the Economist points out.

    Eurosceptics are basically the Tea Party of Britain - a confused political movement of people who don't like the world as it is but don't know what to do about it, heavily inflated by a media who sell an over-simplified narrative because it's easy and promises quick solutions. But under any sustained scrutiny the stuff their peddling doesn't make any sense, and if there's a referendum then people outside the nutty echo-chamber of UKIP and the Daily Mail start looking at it, at which point the jig is up. As the GOP found, you can't convince a majority of people of a nonsensical scheme just by shouting loudly.
