    It's 18 for the EU Referendum across the UK.

    This also applies in Scotland for non Scottish elections.
    Scottish elections are 16.

    WHY U SHOULD LEAVE THE EU. BETTER READ THIS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !
    Leaving the EU would offer a chance to put the UK in charge of our own destiny and laws again — and restore our status as a sovereign nation.According to the Commons Library, up to 60 per cent of regulations originate from the EU and the 28-member Commission in Brussels — none of whom were elected. Britain’s Commissioner, Lord (Jonathan) Hill, is a former lobbyist and Tory researcher who has never stood for elected office in his life. Nor had his predecessor, Cathy Ashton, a Labour appointee and Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament official. We’d be free to negotiate our own trade deals — especially with the world’s emerging new economies.Since we import £89 billion of goods more annually from other EU countries than we sell to them, the EU stands to lose more than Britain if it seeks to impose tariffs post-Brexit. We are a crucial export market for Germany, the EU’s most powerful country, which would be the post-Brexit deal-maker.

    What percentage of those regulations did we support?

    And what "proper" job has Boris Johnson had? Or Michael Gove?

    60% of our laws do not come from the EU, it's around 13%.
    Yet another lie from project fib.

    If that number is true then it's 13% too many

    EDIT: "13% is likely to be too low, in reality, but 62% is much too high"

    The important thing is what they cover. A law about footpath maintenance is a hell of a different thing from a law providing governments with the right to imprison people they don't like.

    EU law is about things that all of the member states have agreed on, including the UK, or that, in a few cases, a majority agreed on. Given that this is the case, why is that a bad thing?

    Interesting linkage. Planning an invasion are we?

    And, back to the topic, what % of those regulations/laws/guidances/whatever from the EU did we support?

    Law from EU is most like to be more important than footpath maintenance... That makes it even worse, not better.

    I want laws in this country to be decided by people in this country. Not those who live in Italy, Poland, Ukraine whatever ever other country is in the EU. People's culture and attitudes vary so much between the member states that i think it is dangerous to not have full control of our laws.
