Yes, Here's more insight in two years - Nothing's changed. still one of the highest contributing cash cow whilst our own ordinary citizens gets zilch in return!.
The EU is nothing more than a playground for the rich, sharing the spoils between them.

Insult us all they want, we've taken far worse, but I wish they would get it through their thick skulls, We're leaving.

END OF!

Re: Reasons in favour of brexit

1. The EU is failed economic model.
2. The Euro is on the verge of collapse
3. Italy is in recession
4. We trade less with the EU each year
5. The future of the UK for trade is with the rest of the world - not the EU

there are just 5 reasons to leave it.

When the EU implodes I don't want the UK brought down with it. Thats number 6

Our steel industry is on its knees
Farmers are paid to leave fields fallow.
Our Fishing industry was decimated
Local pavements and roads are not resurfaced – many are worse than third world countries
There are More people sleeping on the streets
Water provision was sold off to foreign buyers
Electricity, gas, and petrol so much more expensive
National health services have worsened considerably – Waiting time to see a consultant has increased, as has the time it takes to get a Doctor’s appointment.
We suffer deaths because of the long waiting times for an emergency ambulance.

I could go on but the truth is that we in Britain are so much worse off since we joined the EU.
And that is why intelligent people in this country voted to leave the European Union.

Ignore the scares about the shortage of fruit and vegetables. Our farmers are well able to grow enough.
Given a grant for more boats our fishermen are well capable of keeping the fish flowing.

MP’s chasing a new referendum are a disgrace and should resign. I suggest and know from previous elections that if an MP won their seat by one vote ‘THEY’ would not ask for another election.
Just another example of lack of knowledge and research. With the exception of maybe 2 of the above none repeat NONE have anything what so ever to do with the EU.

Re: Reasons in favour of brexit

well said John. What might suit EU countries does not mean it suits us. We as an island have different ideas to those countries that are joined with each other and therefore have a more common interest.

Yes coming out of the EU will be a challenge for the first few years, but when other countries actually see how well we get on without the EU I suspect many countries will follow our lead and quit as well.

That is what scares the EU beaurocrats most.

The decision is to leave and everybody now should be fully behind it.

1) there is no evidence of that

2) there is no evidence of that

3) correct, due to it's own cock ups

4) correct, mainly because we don't make anything they want.

5) we already trade with the rest of the world
