With plenty of voters undecided about a June referendum on British membership in the European Union, expats in Overseas Territories like Cayman could play a role in its outcome.
Attorney Nick Dixey said he is undecided and finds the issue fascinating. While migration and jobs are central topics debated around the 23 June referendum, he believes the core issue surrounds whether too many decisions and mandates are coming from the continent instead of from UK lawmakers.
“The main concern is the issue of political sovereignty,” he said, “where it resides and whether we should be making decisions for ourselves or whether we should be agreeing to it as the price for having influence in Europe. And those issues have been discussed since the 1975 referendum.”
