Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I might be in the minority on this thread I voted to leave and the sooner we get out the better.

If the EU is such a great place why do they want to punish anyone who wants to leave ?

It is becoming clearer every day that all they want is our money.

The original Common Market we signed up to in 1974 was a good idea and still could be. But the EU as it as now become is a failing entity. It is simply a protection racket for inefficient corporate businesses. It puts up barriers against competition rather than encouraging innovation. People talk as if all trade with EU countries will stop when we leave. It won't business will continue despite the politicians.

The rest of the world is growing much faster than the EU and so its share of global GDP is shrinking. We should be doing trade deals with the areas that are growing not shackled to support those in decline.
