Subject: RE: BS: To Br/Exit Or Not To Br/Exit
"The EU is a good method of restraint on the worst excesses of this."    just your opinion,and speculation not fact at all, if you vote remain imo you are also giving a vote to unrestricted capitalism in the uk, as i say its a f###### awful choice. much scraremongering and speculation on both sides.
it is important for all countries to have control over their own economies,and to have their own currencies, what i think we need is less centralisation of decision making and more devolution, the eu does not offer that,
th eu has destroyed the fishing industries of ireland and the uk,it has encouraged all kinds of changes in agriculture [generally to the detriment of small farmers]and then reversed them a few years later,
it has become a talking shop for overpaid politicians, of whom we have far too many.
it has introduced a minimium wage, it has managed to prevent war in western europe[ it was useless at preventing war between serbia and croatia].
but who is to say whether at some point in the future if the eu swung to the right whether the minimium wage would be scrapped.
th eu is not working well, but will leaving make it any better?. possibly in some ways and possibly not in others.
