    The EU costs Britain £55 million per day; roughly £20 billion per year. And what do we seriously get from it? That money could be better off spent on healthcare or reducing education fees! We need Britain out of the EU which is why I would vote UKIP.

    Which would be doubled, had we traded with the other countries and not limited to a few countries, which charge us ridiculous amounts

    We would be getting more trade + no fees that are forced on us by the EU = More money for the UK to spend on important issues such as; Education and healthcare.

    lool! Now we are going into different loopholes?!

    The EU limit us in who we trade with and interferes with any special trading pacts, essentially limiting us to EU trade.

    If that is your idea of free markets, then I have lost all hope for you.

    Because most of it would be, the UK isn't some global giant anymore it is a puny island with the only thing going for it being tradition. The people of tge island need to stop being so foolish and wake up. This isn't the Victorian era, there is no empire, we have no real power. Our trade alone is worth so much less then our trade if we are in the EU.

    Mexico and Switzerland have free trade with the EU even though they are not members (or even in Europe!). Why can't Britain enjoy that and still have the right to govern its own people?

    Yes but that means they are subject to EU laws without having a vote on them. Plus countries and boarders are archaic and morally abhorrent.

    Green, only party representing people who aren't rich & who care about the future of the planet.
    One party isn't going to reduce or slow down the negative effects of pollution

    Any party fighting for a good planet are fighting a lost cause. The damage has been done

    define free market; are you talking about anarchic trade or just "very very unregulated trade"? what is your opinion of what constitutes the latter?

    Wow wow wow wow, block? We have a veto on laws, just because we don't vote for them doesn't mean that they shouldn't apply. By that logic I didn't vote for all of the UK laws so they shouldn't apply for me.

    We're not just talking about one or two silly laws about whether it should be illegal to cycle on the grass!!!!!! These laws are negatively affecting the economy and society of Britain and most importantly the British people are not having a say/are unaware.
