    Britain should leave the EU as it needs to have a level playing field with the rest of the world. The nation needs to focus more on trading with non-European partners. I don't buy the argument that it is better off when individual interests are combined for the greater good.
    What do you mean level playing field? We do 44% of our international trade with the EU already and once we join the EU trading bloc we'll have to accept the same old protectionist policies that prevent more international trade.

    Please clarify as I'm not sure what your point is.

    But it's not uncontrolled at the moment. Britain is not in Schengen, everyone coming in is checked.
    I know, but it is still too much, it was 300,000 (rounded) this year

    True but the effect of immigrant workers driving wages down is neither a main nor moderate factor.

    To me it is the main factor

    Britain's no longer a super power. Being in the EU gives us a chance to compete with the other powerful nations. That's why economically speaking it is better for Britain to remain in the EU. The tories like to deflect the blame on the EU, but most of the problems that we are facing are due to their incompetence and not the EU. Personally, I think we should try to reform the EU rather than leave it altogether.

    There is no guarantee that we can get better trade deals post-Brexit. That's why I think it's best to remain in a reformed EU.

    What significant changes in our trade, if any, will occur if we leave? It's not like we're just going to suddenly stop the 44% trade with the EU

    Feminists opinions valued? Are you kidding me? They are a laughing stock. Only reason people encourage them is because they are bored and want to see the next Trigglypuff or Social Justice Warrior Coup.

    Have a look at the video below. Your laugh so hard.

    Im not talking about feminists and SJWs. Im talking about racists.

    They believe with that we're not all born equal and some are superior because of their race. they have an irrational hatred for those of other races to theirs.

    Ye wrong Box.

    In answer to your question anyone who whines about racism at me I just give them a mirror question to keep them busy because racist accusations just lead to pointless arguements.

    But you admit you're racist. Pointless? why exactly is it pointless to show why the opinion of a racist is irrelevant. The same ideology you believe in was the same ideology the western slave traders used as leverage to take in black slaves. I would like to think such views are actively denounced without getting called a "leftist" or "an SJW".
