"Well in our 40 years of membership we have contributed towards all sorts of Hardware Projects like actual buildings and real estate. Are we to walk away from these with nothing?"
This remark betrays the fact that you have no understanding of the mutual benefits of our forty-year membership. It is not about tit-for-tat. It's about being part of a union that works to the mutual benefit of all the members. That means that the richer members contribute more, but, in return, they benefit more than they would have done had they been outside. Germany is the single biggest contributor to the EU, and, is also, by a country mile, the most prosperous member. Go bloody figure.
