Ok let's turn that around then - what would Cameron need to get changed in order to make you vote Yes.

Next answer?

Some people would sell their mother.

vee-tail-1,

The funding provided by the EU to the U.K. comes from the money this country has already paid to the EU. So if the U.K. left the EU, all the projects could be funded by the U.K. itself - with a lot of change. As for the list, there is nothing on it that could not be renegotiated between nations or could not be implemented by the British government alone.

I believe that the trade figures quoted are highly inflated and net figures are around 36%. But 57% or 36% is irrelevant - why would the trade stop?

Why would people not be able to live and work across Europe? Work visas, residence visas, retirement visas are commonplace throughout the world.

Your list is pure scaremongering.

And there is certainly nothing on the list, either singularly or collectively, that is worth the sovereignty of the U.K.

I vote NO.

As Ronald Reagan once said about Aliens...

"I've met them and they're not very nice"

Eurocrats that is. Singularly OK but in Commission plenary session just so different to us English we could only be better off without them.

It's about how we see life and how we live it. Brits are free thinkers unencumbered by socio-political tram lines in comparison with much of (southern) Europe.

They want regulation, compliance and we have rules and recommended practices. Ask a Spanish Law-Maker to relinquish codification and introduce case law.......

So as the judges on BGT "I'm sorry, it's a no from me".

I'll be voting to stay in the EU.
Those who said we always managed before on our own, seem to forget that our relative importance in the world has declined steadily for a hundred years. It will continue to diminish as the major third-world nations develop and grow in strength.
Yes, there are successful small countries out there, but we are not going to become one ourselves just by leaving the EU.

It's a 100% NO from me and a 100% NO from Mrs C16.

As from being from the land down under and hence part of the British empire,

Yes!!

what moving forward given the challenges makes you think this is a good deal for the UK?
It shouldn't be about whats good for the poms, its about whats good for the future as a whole.

Mock the vote .
We have seen campaigns to rock the vote.
Now may be the time to mock the vote.


As if any "in or out" vote would really make a difference to the faceless un-elected multi-national corporations who are attempting to build a United States Of Europe. Just like the USA with its slave labour from the south,or as they like to call them illegals .
Modern slavery by fence jumping in the southern USA and the boatload in the EU.
If they were serious about protecting their own citizens they would jail the owners that employ the illegals, seize the property and profits from the illegal criminal enterprise's and deport the illegals.
Time to mock them who pretend to be leaders as the spineless corrupt corporate lackies' that they are.


The only thing left to do is to mock them as the useless blowhards that their lack of action and enforcement make them appear to be.


Maybe when the FBI is finished with FIFA they will have a look at multi-nationals that are using slave labour.


Its all Balderdash

Cameron will make demands, let's say about 10
8 will be refused completely
1 will be a possibility and could be negotiated over a (long) time
1 will be accepted

On the basis of this result the great British public will be persuaded to vote for remaining in the EU.

Whichever way the vote goes the French will say it's wrong.

Irony lives!! When you say Brits, you mean English ... people who generally speak only one language ... people who think themselves different from those 'foreigners' across the bit of water they call the Channel ... people who regard Polish workers as alien, yet allow immigrant lawyers from Pakistan to practice Sharia law ... people who still judge each other by class and accent ...
.... but thank God a people who will shed a tear of sadness pride and nostalgia at the sound of a Spitfire flying above.

We who live on this tiny European island are Europeans and it is by participating in Europe that we will make a better world.

FFS Brits stop wingeing and get stuck into building that better world.

Perhaps those who would vote No to the ever hungry bunch of megalomaniac thugs who rule Europe from Brussels and Strasbourg need a consolidatory title.

It would be interesting to know the amount of this spending by the UK government vs the EU as you get further away from London - gut feel is that the EU are more prepared to fund projects in the regions.

Why would people not be able to live and work across Europe? Work visas, residence visas, retirement visas are commonplace throughout the world.
Simplicity of execution is likely to be a key driver

Your list is pure scaremongering.
I suspect that will be the nub of the debate from both sides over the next couple of years!
