Thread Name: BS: should UK leave the EU?
Subject: RE: BS: should UK leave the EU?
I like a nice cheddar (Ivy's Vintage Reserve please) and a Stilton, but too many English cheeses are bland and dry. Some of the newly invented English blue cheeses are nice and some of the older ones too.
On the EU however, the social chapter and workers rights and EU discrimination law are all valuable things.
TTIP and free movement of capital are not. If we had a government that could opt out of the TTIP that the EUcrats are about to drag us into (despite about three and a half million signatures on a petition opposing it) I would seriously consider leaving the EU the right thing to do. If we had a government that could at a stroke re-impose exchange control, just as the bitch Thatcher abolished it I might also consider leaving the EU the right thing to do. But we haven't.
The first and most important thing to do is to get rid of the con-servatives.
