Why don't EU kick UK out ??

Can anybody tell me WHY the EU don't just kick the UK out their
club if we are so much trouble to them ??
It does not make sense to me why they should put up with all our
shenanigans and back tracking etc UNLESS they have something
to lose by so doing ??
What could it be that they will lose l wonder ??

Hi

We are no longer part of the EU Donkeyman.

All we have is a Trade Agreement and Protocol negotiated by and signed by Boris.

They have to humiliate anyone who tries to leave!

They don't even kick Poland and Hungary out which is what they should do in the first place. I'm not sure if there's such a mechanism at all. Sadly, they are interested in expanding rather than downsizing and concentrating on the willing.

I think it shows exactly that Dachs , they are only interested in
expanding as you rightly say !
But it seems they now want what could be called impoverished
nations to join ? I suppose to supply the cheap labour requirement
needed to keep the founding nations on the top of the heap , so
to speak ?
Plus it justifies the commissions own existence as well !!

Exactly my point Swimmy!
Nothing much has changed has it?
We still can't control our fishing grounds !
Theoretically we can do deals with other parties now but it seems
the EU has got in before us in many cases?
They are still trying to interfere with our internal trade as Macron
showed this week end ?
I don't call that leaving !!

My question was, why, if we are so much trouble to them, they don't
just cut all ties to us ??
Do they need a "trade" agreement and "protocol" with us ??

Yes but l thought we were paying that in installments over a number of years so they are covered for a few years yet, so surely they are free
to boot us out of they wish ??

Could it be that they get some sort of perverse thrill out of giving us a good kicking at every opportunity?

EU still have ambition of becoming 'superpower' to be an independent force.
