While there is talk of a British exit from the EU in its current form, why would this Government exit without the positive backing of a referendum?
When has this or any Government listened to the British people? If they did, we would have the death penalty on the statute book.
There was a referendum in 1975 asking the people if they wanted to continue with membership of EEC, and the EU is very different from what the British
people voted. Based on what I have read about the EEC, I would be happy to continue to be part of an European Economic Community and enjoying the
trade benefits within Europe, but we have today with the EU is so much more that an European Economic Community.
The EU and for that matter the Euro are the building blocks of a European super state, which in its current form is an extension of Germany foreign
policy. Germany, being the largest economy in the EU has called and will continue to call the tune of Europe, and has replaced France as the leader
of the EU and the Euro.
Exit from the EU and its super state would be a bad thing how? Fiscal Euro policy is decided by Germany and to a less extent France, the Euro
interest rate has been set to benefit Germany and those core central countries bordering Germany. The countries on the fringe of the Euro zone has
suffered more that France and Germany.
Why are we talking about a Greek exit from the Euro and not a French or Dutch exit? With the Euro, these fringe countries are not able to have
interest rates that benefit the needs of their local economies. The Euro interest rate has been set to benefit Germany and France, and not Spain,
Italy, Greece and Ireland.
Those we elect to the parliaments and assemblies in the UK listen little to us anyway, and make all kind of promises to be elected, and then make
excuses once elected as to why they can not keep the promises made during the election process. Can we expect anything different from those elected
to the European super state parliament/assembly?
