Patricia Tsouros: Why should we rush in and vote Yes when other states are simply sitting back and waiting?

I HAVE been in business for 20 years and I am at a loss to understand how anyone would want to make a rushed and ill- informed decision about their future. That is why I am calling on a vote on this week’s referendum.

I fundamentally disagree with the timing of this referendum, particularly at a time when Europe is under enormous strain.

Look at the market place right now – Spain is in turmoil with its banks, France is diametrically opposed to Germany and Greece is still evolving - and what about Germany? Merkel’s last stand is to make you and I vote for something which was drafted by her to keep the German voters happy. This treaty is Merkel’s insurance policy to make sure you and I keep paying the debts of reckless banking gamblers. Do we really want to do that?
