    what relationahip ??!! there is none. we conflict directly on the majority of policy issues with EU member states.
    Yeah but policies aside, we still align ourselves with them by being part of the EU. If we actively withdraw ourselves from that, it's just going to be a slap in the face, and we'll have severed all ties completely.

    dont exactly have to go far to find an example either, a certain war.
    But that war wasn't something that the UK wanted, it was Blair's way of sucking up to Bush, it had nothing to do with how the public felt about the issue. Maybe if we were closer to the EU and further away from the US, we wouldn't have got so involved.

    I don't know how high morality rates with you guys, but would I be the only person feeling extremely guilty for withdrawing our billion pound investment in trying to brgin the rest of the EU up to speed in terms of healthcare/education/employment? These people have just as much a right to these things as we do, we are in no way better human beings for denying them these rights and concentrating on our already greedy/obese nation.

    well done, so why dont instead of saying "your dumb", make some actual meaningful comments to prove that i am wrong. and i am more qualified on this matter than you, since 2/3 a2 level exams are based on the euro zone.

    I think that equity is a good argument too. It could be argued we have a moral obligation to help people who are less fortunate than ourselves, rather than trying to turn ourselves into America.

    i didnt know of this figure but 1% is a large sum of money. and if you are so bothered about those less fortunate than ourselves, dont forget they still have to pay the high food prices that CAP creates, reducing disposable income and making them worse off anyway.

    Yes, it is a large amount of money as a number alone, but compared to the proportion of America's wealth, it's negligable. The CAP is a ridiculous excuse for a scheme, but it was originally intended to help support poor farmers, the intentions were right, it just happened that we started propping up inefficient farmers and producing surplus food.

    intentions mean nothing, and they are still running it, they could simply admit they were wrong and terminate it.

    greenland?? isnt greenland in north america??
    No it's Europe last time I looked at an atlas.

    you keep saying closer trade links with US, but what makes you think they want to? at the end of the day, they are gonna look after their own citizens first no matter how close we are with them.
    USA doesn't care about what happens outside of themselves unless it's to their advantage. They have always been like this since they refused to have free trade with Britain after USA was no longer a British colony. People get fed up with this relationship with USA as well.

    after studying economics for 2 years and gaining an A grade at a level i assure you i am not. but, since you pass comment, explain why this is dumb...
    Economics 'A' level is full of simplistic rubbish, this has been said on this forum before.

    Well perhaps they should, but us withdrawing from the EU won't make that happen.

    the state of this post would imply you have got no knowledge of economics whatsoever. no evidence of economic terms or justification whatsoever. a poor effort.
