    Many (73%) of people who have viewed this online debate believe the EU will not survive another decade, personally I think Germany may be the next nation to leave as Merkel does not listen to them and keeps allowing more and more immigrants into there borders. If Germany leave along with us I believe they will not survive much longer. The official line for its invention is tariff free trading- According to my dad nobody was told that infinite amount of Europeans would be turning up every year when the vote was cast in the first instance. Why is free movement of people needed to have tariff free trading surely there is some way around it ?

    While I have sympathy with Greece the EU haven't forced them into anything, their problems are entirely of their own making. They cooked the books to join the Euro, didn't collect taxes properly and let people retire in their 50's without the means to fund their pensions.

    Clearly everyone knew Greece would need bailing out where do they have money- most of there GDP was tourism but that's gone because of the amount of migrants crowding out the country. I think the only other thing Greece has of value is olive oil
