    Not really? You can't expect the UK to always get their way and boohoo we voted against something and there were more votes against us. Stop bringing up my age as its more embarrassing for you, seeing as you don't have solid reasons to be against the EU

    What if a low-skilled person from the UK wanted to move somewhere in the EU and they said no?
    Good for them if they say no that should be their right.

    The fishing quota which caused mass job losses in Grimsby?
    They'd have lost them anyway AND there's be no fish left. Best of a bad choice really.

    From Croatia? Nobody is immigranting from Croatia to the UK, it was never interesting. Also, the Anglo-Saxon culture is to foreign.

    In what period were these 10000 homes given to eastern EU nationals?

    Which countries constitute "eastern EU"?

    In what period was it counted that there are 2744 people in the UK sleeping rough? As far as I am concerned, that number is pretty bloody low, and most likely false.

    Oh, and by the way, social housing does not mean that you have your rent completely paid for by the state - most often it means that you are in a low-paid job and require extra money in order to just about afford your living costs.

    Paul (the person you quoted) wasn't agreeing with you. He was saying the EU country has the right to refuse the low-skilled British person......

    Emphasis in bold- I couldnt give a **** if all the rent or part of the rent was paid. If you come here, you cover your own costs!

    Embarassing myself? Says the person who thought somebody replying to their post was supporting them and was actually criticising....

    You asked me why the EU is bad:

    -We cannot control our own borders
    -They wish to enforce a financial transactions tax which would screw our economy more than any other in Europe
    -55 laws we didn't want have been forced on us
    -EU law adds red tape to businesses

    Oh but don't reply, otherwise you might contradict yourself again

    1. Thats part of freedom of travel, and loads of Brits don't complain when its us going around Europe.
    2. If our economy gets screwed, it has a knock on affect to the Euro so that doesnt make sense?
    3. we can't always get our own way

    1. We're not discussing people going on holiday. Not many British people move abroad to live in Europe compared with the number of migrants coming here. Also, I'm fairly confident a self-sufficient British person would be admitted to any EU country without freedom of movement. In contrast, a sponging, low-skilled immigrant wouldn't get here. Win win.

    2) Exactly. You're starting to see what the EU is about now. I told you its sole purpose is to remove wealth from the UK.

    3) Yes we can, leave the EU and have a free trade agreement in place?

    1. http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2...im-benefits-eu
    Compared to the 2.3 million EU citizens in the UK, which includes people who came after Poland and nine other states joined the Union in 2004, British consular authorities estimate that 2.2 million Britons live in the other 26 EU countries, excluding Croatia, which joined in 2013.

    2. No I'm not.

    3. why would the EU make an agreement with us if we left?

    Then let their host EU country decide whether they want to keep them or not. Every country should have the right to choose their own citizens/visitors.

    Because we are Germany's biggest exporter? Because without our trade the Eurozone would collapse?

    The whole point of being in the EU, from the UK's perspective was for free trade, nothing else.

    What about them? Germany currently trades with the UK, thats the point! Stop looking for excuses.

    False.
    I stand corrected, we are third. The point still remains- Germany needs to trade with us.

    If we left we would still be competitive as those countries would have the same tariffs put on their exports as us.
