1. What will be the tariffs on British goods after an exit?
2.How much more would we have to pay for EU goods because of new UK tariffs?
3. Why would EU countries let us sell to their market of 550 million customers on equal terms if we don't follow the EU rules? Surely this would disadvantage their own companies and be rejected.
4. Why would we get any say over EU rules & regulations after we leave?
5. How do we replace our biggest foreign market if there is any decline in sales to the EU? Why would we suddenly start selling more to the rest of the world? What is the mechanism that makes that happen in reality?
6. How many London jobs depend on financial services industries and how many of those jobs would migrate to the rival centre of Frankfurt?
7. How many Sunderland jobs depend on the car industry and how many foreign owned companies would move business inside the new EU borders to be certain of tariff free trading long term?
8. What will happen to UK farming after an exit?
9. What happens to the EU after we leave? Is there any risk of it breaking up and do we go back to a Europe of tiny states that fought two world wars? How has NATO helped to keep the peace between France, Germany and the UK?
10. What will the Brexit camp want to do the morning after an exit? Will they be itching to strengthen workers rights, maternity leave, health and safety at work, animal rights, environmental protection, investment in green energy and the human rights act?
11. What will happen to Scotland? What will prevent the break-up of the UK? How will the Scottish border be policed? Will their example be followed by Northern Ireland? Or Wales?
Most people on the streets are complaining that they can't seem to get the facts about the impact of a Brexit and so can't yet make up their minds. The truth is that none of us can give them a factual answer to most questions. Both sides are speculating because no one can know the answers. Each side can tell you what they want to be true but the only fact is that there is huge uncontrollable uncertainty.
It is entirely possible that we will split from our partners in an entirely reasonable way after a series of friendly and helpful negotiations where all sides follow rational long term decision making processes and downplay their own short term self interest. Anyone who has ever split from a partner whether in business or in love will have their doubts about this. Divorce tends to come with a hefty price bill.
Of course sometimes a painful divorce is worth it because we emerge at the end of the process stronger and happier and glad that we put up with a bit of pain. I am sure that everyone will be re-assured by that thought as they contemplate the prospect of waking up in June to find themselves in bed with Nigel Farage, Ian Duncan Smith and Berndard Ingham. They may also be inspired by hope as they hear that we can now look forward to a secure future because we can control our borders and shut out all those pesky foreigners who have been causing all our problems. Personally I think the world might just be a little more complex and I am not too sure that I view the empowerment of UKIP and its friends as a very hopeful prospect!
Sometimes fear is a very rational and sensible emotion.
