Nice to know opinion of you guys about the subject, since I’ve been reading (only briefly, fortunately) loads of bollocks from both sides recently.
If I was a Brit, I’d be definitely for out. Keep your life in order and make bilateral agreements with whoever you like. And if nothing else, I'd be properly pissed with Varoufakis' making a case for IN.
Good luck! :thumbs

Disloyal ? ... You mean they have a different opinion to the mainstream / majority , i would say thats a good thing being able to think for yourself rather than follow the herd as you obviously do

as for the xenophobic bit , blah blah blah , heard it all before , jog on

as you said earlier this is a racing forum why dont you weigh in with some tips then ?

I have 4 local councillors (2 of whom are complete a***holes, one os OK and one is good. ) an MP (who is very good, pity she's labour-going to put me in a quandry next election if Corbyn still in charge) and a Welsh AM who I know q well and don't particularly like but seems to do a fair job.. I have an Euro MP who I've no idea who he is, what he stands for or what he does- I'm presuming it's a he. I've met all the councillors, MP and Welsh AM many times but never Mr X. Get out!

I've no idea who my MEP is either and have just googled to find out and came across the official page of the Information Office In The United Kingdom from which I copy and paste:

What do MEPs do?

Your MEPs are your elected representatives in the European Union. Their job is to represent your interests and those of your city or region in Europe. They do this by listening to people with local and national concerns, to interest groups and businesses. Where necessary, they question and lobby the Commission and the Council of Ministers.

Above all, MEPs pass laws that affect many aspects of our lives, for example:

-how many hours employees throughout the EU can be required to work and how much rest and holiday they must be given;
-which pesticides are safe to use on the food grown in the EU;
-how much you pay for mobile phone calls when you go to another EU country;
-how to use and label Genetically Modified Organisms;
-making children's toys safe;
-the safety of thousands of chemicals used in everyday manufactured goods such as TVs and sofas;
-cleaning up the air we breathe and the water we drink and swim in;
-getting health care in another EU country either on holiday or when the queue is too long in your own country;
-making it easier to study at university in another EU country.


Well apart from the last 2 items on that list, it's hard to believe that a modern, civilised country like the UK cannot deal with laws regarding children's toys, pesticides etc etc. I don't expect many UK citizens will be travelling elsewhere in the EU for health care very often, and it was certainly eminently possible to study at university in other European cities before we joined the Common Market in the 1970's.

What is not included of course is "what do unelected commissioners and bureaucrats do?". Imposing rates of VAT at 20%, for example, and the more serious stuff. Very reassuring that MEP's, "where necessary, question and lobby the Commission.............." In other words they achieve sweet FA!. x-)

Cllr Duffy of Ramsey, and leader of the UKIP group on Huntingdonshire District Council, told the BBC East Sunday Politics show: “There are some wonderful people who have come into this country and contributed and really integrated – and others who haven’t.

“I’ve worked with police in Wisbech who have to deal with stabbings; some of the migrants just don’t understand how we operate”. {8 {8 {8 {8 {8 {8

Presenter Stewart White tried to intervene but Cllr Duffy insisted: “I can break it down. Go ask the police up there where they deal with it on a daily basis.”

Earlier Cllr Duffy had said that what this country finds challenging is when they “don’t see a level of fairness”.

She said people coming from the Commonwealth must undergo a points based level of entry but “from the EU they just come in. We cannot control who is coming here from the EU.”

Cllr Duffy was taking part in a region wide EU debate.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Baltic International Food at 50 Hill Street won a surprise decision by the licensing committee of Fenland Council to open for business.

Police licensing officer Phil Richardson wanted the application refused under the council’s own cumulative impact policy that restricts the number of alcohol outlets in the town.

He said there were 12 outlets already selling alcohol within a few minutes walk and he cautioned against another so near The Crescent and St Peters Church gardens which “attracts large number of street drinkers”.

He said these areas had become associated with “violence and crime in recent years necessitating police action”.

Pc Richardson said the number of shops selling alcohol in the town had been a concern for some time and street drinking “sits as a high concern by the local populace”.

And he said recent figures show a rise of nearly 20 per cent in the past year in alcohol related incidents.

The application was before the licensing committee and chairman Michael Humphrey said his members felt the applicant had provided “sufficient evidence to rebut the presumption that we would normally refuse the application”.

The committee also heard from senior trading standards officer Andrew Fayers who claimed the applicants had not provided sufficient evidence to rebut the issues contained within the cumulative impact policy.

Kate Parker, on behalf of the director of public health Dr Liz Robin, said despite the cumulative impact policy the town still faced serious alcohol related problems.

Alcohol related deaths in Fenland were the highest in Cambridgeshire. To year ending March 31, 2015 there had been 316 people in Fenland needing treatment for alcohol misuse – 42 of them requiring either a community detox or admission to hospital.

Always had that feeling that the " club " sorry European Union was bossed solely by two counties, now I could be called ridiculous by that statement but I am not even going to name them but in or out you know who I am talking about, so there must be a lot of truth in that.
" Safer in " I would like someone who wants to stay to really explain that to me, good luck with that one.
Fact is this is an exclusive club & though the main players from Europe want us to stay its not for our sake they want that but purely for theirs.

My pal went to his dentist(NHS) last week. 11 people in front of him - 4 patients (one who'd brought his family along) and three interpreters who I presume are paid.

I don't understand any of it, and I couldn't give two hoots if we stay or go.

I don't think I'll bother voting, but if it was compulsory the I'd probably choose "stay", which seems to go against everybody on here. From the little bits I've heard I think that'll suit me (personally) better.

I'm happy with low interest rates as that suits my mortgage better than my savings.
I'm also more than happy with the supply and demand for new houses. I'm doing fewer hours each week and earning more money than I ever have on a regular basis.
I also presume we'd over run with foreigners if we did choose to leave.
