I'd guess that at least 60 per cent of the population have no clue whatsoever what this is all about either because they don't understand Ny of the issues and/or they don't give a rats arse
It's been used by cameron IMO to get his name in the history books
He is a pointless prime minister
The sooner he's booted the better, to be replaced with someone who was born with guts
Re Europe, I think it would be a mistake to leave outright, a more spinefull PM could do more on every issue that's a grievance
I agree that most people don't really understand what it is all about, they see all these new EU funded projects all over the place and think what a jolly good job. What they fail to understand is that it is they the British taxpayer who is actually funding it. For every £1.50 the UK government pays out to the EU the country only gets £1 back. The UK is the second largest contributor to the EU.
If the UK didn't have to dish out nearly £10 billion every year to the EU it could fund its own projects for much less. Only 9% of the UK's Gross Domestic Product is trade with the EU, the majority of our trade is with the rest of the world. Leading economists estimated that leaving the EU would see an immediate reduction of 8% in our cost of living. We are subsidising the poor countries of Europe, the former Soviet Bloc, but why should we?
Cameron has let the cat out of the bag however over the last few days, apart from the fat cat companies in London and the South East who have a vested interest in remaining in the UK, membership is all about power and control. The powers that be are worried that Russia and Putin are gearing up for a new cold war with the Ukraine being the new front line. They fear that if the UK were to leave, the EU would fragment and ultimately disintegrate.
The EU has shown itself to be a toothless dinosaur however, it is incapable of dealing with the migrant crisis let alone an onslaught from Russia. It is the job of the United Nations and NATO to keep order in the world, the EU has no real power. It has been allowed to grown into this huge wasteful and corrupt white elephant since its inception following the original Common Market agreements. It attempts to be all things to all people but that just isn't sustainable.
I vote we leave for sure and take back control of our own country.
