    I started off researching the EU due to a school debate that I had coming up. The more I researched, the more I realised I actually wanted to leave the EU.

    Please ask me anything u want, as I want to test my knowledge, and perhaps learn a little more(as no-one knows everything) to ensure I have come to the correct conclusion and my arguments are good for the debate. So yh, ask away!

    No, an 'opinion' is an instrument that allows the institutions to make a statement in a non-binding fashion, in other words without imposing any legal obligation on those to whom it is addressed. An opinion is not binding. It can be issued by the main EU institutions (Commission, Council, Parliament), the Committee of the Regions and the European Economic and Social Committee. While laws are being made, the committees give opinions from their specific regional or economic and social viewpoint. For example, the Committee of the Regions issued an opinion on the clean air policy package for Europe.

    Could u perhaps rephrase the question, I don't understand.

    Are you implying that by leaving the eu, we will increase unemployment, so how will we combat this?
    Is that your question, or just how will leaving the eu reduce unemployment?

    Which one?

    I am just testing you on some obscure EU knowledge - I didn't know this myself.

    That's okay, I probably went a bit too far with the question - not many people would be able to answer that. And yes there are many time wasters on this website - hopefully I don't become one of them.

    Why do you think people want to stay in the EU and why are they wrong in your opinion?

    What are your three biggest concerns at the moment (and why are they) and how would leaving the EU help solve that?
