Yes, because of course we were a completely backward country before that. We didn't fight for women's rights before the EU even existed. We didn't help our neighbours in the war effort during their time of need. We didn't adopt a socially liberal attitude towards homosexuality much before a lot of other European countries, some of which are still very homophobic. We didn't bring about the foundation of the welfare state. We didn't realise that people need healthcare regardless of income and bring in the NHS.(Original post by JordanL_)
Yes, we're now free from the shackles that forced us to give employment rights, consumer rights, animal welfare and climate change legislation. I've never felt so liberated!!
No. None of that happened. What an utterly backwards nation we'd have been without the EU bureaucrats in Brussels and their 600+ regulations for toasters.
And actually passed?
