It all depends on how far Cameron gets with changing things to suit the UK.

Next question?

What would be the deal breaker for you?

For those with stay votes, what moving forward given the challenges makes you think this is a good deal for the UK?

Exactly.

I err towards the remaining in the EU camp, however am prepared to listen carefully to facts and reason, rather than emotive rhetoric. As Cameron hasn't yet put forward the re negotiated position to us, it is rather early to offer an opinion.

Well, I think I've got it figured out.

David Cameron is going to be doing the Hokey Cokey with the EU.

For those not au-fait with the lyrics of said participation dance....

NO

Perhaps the question should be "Would you like our economy to be free, or to to be constrained?"

Please explain how they voted. I have met cats interested in many things, but none gave a tinker's cuss about whether the UK stayed in the EU.

Perhaps they have given you an opinion as to why the CH doesn't join the EU ?
Just before dinner time I asked them. They both yowled Yes.

Switzerland is a special case, with our direct democracy. Incompatable with either EU or UK forms of government.

No! Wait, my opinion doesn't matter being an American! But that does not count as a yes!

By stating just 'No' appears not to be accepted so I say again 'No'

If it was a common market for trade, then the UK should stay in.

If it is part of a Federation, where too many non-British take the piss, then no.

At last we may get a debate on Britain's relationship with Europe.

Everyone can reel off a few beefs with Europe, but not much has been made of the advantages such as:-

Providing 57% of our trade; structural funding to areas hit by industrial decline; clean beaches and rivers; cleaner air; lead free petrol; restrictions on landfill dumping; a recycling culture; cheaper mobile charges; cheaper air travel; improved consumer protection and food labelling; a ban on growth hormones and other harmful food additives; better product safety; single market competition bringing quality improvements and better industrial performance; break up of monopolies; Europe-wide patent and copyright protection; no paperwork or customs for exports throughout the single market; price transparency and removal of commission on currency exchanges across the eurozone; freedom to travel, live and work across Europe; funded opportunities for young people to undertake study or work placements abroad; access to European health services; labour protection and enhanced social welfare; smoke-free workplaces; equal pay legislation; holiday entitlement; the right not to work more than a 48-hour week without overtime; strongest wildlife protection in the world; improved animal welfare in food production; EU-funded research and industrial collaboration; EU representation in international forums; bloc EEA negotiation at the WTO; EU diplomatic efforts to uphold the nuclear non-proliferation treaty; European arrest warrant; cross border policing to combat human trafficking, arms and drug smuggling; counter terrorism intelligence; European civil and military co-operation in post-conflict zones in Europe and Africa; support for democracy and human rights across Europe and beyond; investment across Europe contributing to better living standards and educational, social and cultural capital.

Taken from a letter by Simon Sweeney lecturer in political economics at the university of York.

On top of which many other countries look at us as a gateway to Europe, do we really want to shut that and loose even more trade opportunities?
