    Sorry but that sounds like wishful thinking. We had the same kind of wishful thinking from the SNP during the indy debate when they said EU membership for Scotland will be simply transferrable without any facts to back it up.

    The irony is that the UK's elevated economic status of No.5 is because of the EU and not despite it.

    [QUOTE=dozy;1148060]The referendum has turned into the biggest sham in modern history and is as big as the Iran War in lies and misleading chat. Why are we voting anyway as it's just a conservative con job to fool the country and stop us catching on to the dirty dealing done in Westminster. Smoke , mirrors and snake oil salesmen one and all.
    Can anyone show some money figures on what the other countries pay unto the EU pot and what they get out .[/QUOTE

    Are we really the 5th biggest economy in the world? I don't believe that for one second.

    Prove it.

    That is pretty easy, the IMF collate the figures and they are recognised body to do it.

    Hating people because of their colour is wrong. And it doesn't matter which colour does the hating. It's just plain wrong.
