I would vote NO, which living in England unfortunately I dont think I will get the chance to do in a years time now regardless of if the Dutch vote no.
I find the abominable unaccountable waste of money that is the current EU an affront to my intelligence, and values. What is worse is I in part like most of the other people here are paying for it!
The UK contributes NET Â£3.3bn (â‚¬4.7) to the EUs bloated coffers a year (Â£55 for each man woman and child) projected to rise by 55% over the next 4 years. A hourendous waste of money that should be spent on British citizens.
I have utter contempt for the current crop of dishonest lying and corrupt EU politicians. I am fed up with being lied to, deceived, mislead, and ultimately betrayed by the politicians notionally elected to serve my interests, not their own.
The EU has compromised and compromised until it has managed to reach a solution unacceptable to everyone. To use Airheads example of the ridiculous "Brussels-Strasbourg-Brussels move". I am English, I dont care whether it is in Brussels or Strasbourg. I do care about it being in both, and wasting a fortune doing so. To use topical examples, how many thousands of peoples lives could be made immeasurably better by spending that money on the refugees the Sudan? It seems almost immoral.
The entire European commission should be imprisoned for gross negligence. How many years is it now that the auditors have not been able to sign off on the accounts? How many billions have gone missing (or probably more to the point which filthy politicians pockets have been on the receiving end of great portions of it)? Is this an organization you want to be a part of? I certainly dont.
The EU was originally set up as a "free trade" area. And the politicians are slowly and slimily driving it towards a single quasi state. The idea of a European state is not an idea I have a problem with, what I do have a problem with is the lack of honesty about it.
[B]The EU needs to reform and make a decision;
It needs to make clear its plans on becoming a state, each country needs to have a referendum on whether or not to join the progress towards a single state, and if they decide to, they need to get on with it. The main problem is it will have to have a single language (certainly of government) and government.
Or if they are not planning on workign towards a single state, or for those countryâ€™s that do not want to become part of it;
They need to become a simple free trade area, as it once was, with a simple running committee, and without the meddlesome powers of the current EU.[/B]
Finally Turkey in the EU - No, I dont even want to start on that one.
