Probably means most for London for better or for worse should we leave / stay.
The European Union are intent on developing a fiscal union. It is the only way forward. I'm sure the forces that be will try to find a way to push through the necessary changes surreptitiously.Remain. But I think the eurozone was a terrible idea for everyone apart from Germany and the Benelux countries. I don't think the eurozone crisis can be resolved without either (1) much closer fiscal integration (which is now politically impossible), or (2) abandoning the Euro, or (3) splitting the Euro in 2 currencies (southern and northern).
If the EU never existed then people like yourself would not give up on the environment or civil liberties, they/you would instead direct your energies towards winning a democractic mandate for them. As it is we have the EU pushing forward the agenda without the democractic mandate, which brings good causes into disrepute.Besides i don't trust this current government with issues regarding the environment and civil liberties , if we were to leave.
The EU is more democratically accountable than the UK government.It's an out for me. The main reason being the lack of democratic accountability of the European Commission and the underlining principle of ever closer union which I can't agree with.
Love Europe, hate the EU!
1. Have a closer look at the power that the EU Commission holds and then look at how the 28 members are selected. Then consider whether or not it's democratic.The EU is more democratically accountable than the UK government.
Ever closer union is just a trite slogan like 'the special relationship'. It doesn't mean anything and isn't worth jeopardising our economy over.
As far as i am aware, the UK is in Europe and has no physical way of leaving regardless of the referendum on it's EU membership.Not entirely buried. One can see some rather nice steel caps. Something might well be underway before the century is out. JC Morgan might even leave the United Kingdom for Europe.
Don't the Monster Raving Loony Party have it in their manifesto that they'll move the UK to the Caribbean? They've got as much at winning as Jezza's Labour at present.As far as i am aware, the UK is in Europe and has no physical way of leaving regardless of the referendum on it's EU membership.
True, but if we leave all the banks will have to move to an EU country to continue to do business in Europe so get used to mass unemployment and abandoned sites if we do.As far as i am aware, the UK is in Europe and has no physical way of leaving regardless of the referendum on it's EU membership.
Thats not true. The word on the ground is most banks will only move what they need to in to europe. 'Only' about 30% of the cities trade is euro area related.True, but if we leave all the banks will have to move to an EU country to continue to do business in Europe so get used to mass unemployment and abandoned sites if we do.
