More blackmail and fear mongering from the europhiles.

Blackmailing the mugs, business skim the cash from now?

Like most business management structure standards, tin-pot dictatorship from board level down, filters out through into society.

Surely less EU means more U.K competitiveness in a global world?

Therefore no-option but one-way renegotiations of Social Chapters and Business Regulations of EU derived red-tape, is a positive boon for U.K businesses?

There are 60 million people in this country. We should do what is right for them and not what is right for a few hundred bloated businesses.

I would ask who pays most tax?, the 60 million or the few hundred bloated businesses but that would be silly. I probably pay more tax than the few hundred bloated businesses.

It is time for a change. A change in peoples attitudes first, then Government and finally the Bankers.

The attitude change is simple and incredibly difficult. It would be easier if politicians understood banking and the people weren’t so easily distracted.

Britain has got a reasonably strong hand but a poker player Cameron isn’t! As for business they want butter on both sides of the toast. Lower taxation from the government and tax payers subsidies to the club of 27. As someone said earlier Europe pumps a lot of goods into the UK. On the other hand figures for our trade with Europe includes goods that are going world wide but shipped through Rotterdam. About 38% of our goods go to European consumers. So if they put Tariffs on UK goods and we reciprocated then Europe would be the losers.

Factbox is an unfortunate misnomer. In the EU there is scarcely a fact in sight. It can never pass its own accounts and its minions have no visible purposes other than to make the lives of most of us difficult and support their own exorbitantly expensive lifestyles.

Certain grandees of British industry consider themselves to be insiders who can rely on the EU to make life impossible for small companies which might one day be competition for their present near-monopolies. They should rest assured that their selfish greed and anti-social attitudes are very apparent and not only to socialists. Their voices increase the urgent desire of most of us to be shot of the EU and to be shot of them as well if they are as treasonous as we suspect.
