I read yesterday that the EU are making plans to take over policing our borders.......They will have the say who can be let in OUR country without any say from our Government........seems it's the EU's way to make us take our share of the flood of 'asylum seekers' from the middle east that have already started landing in Italy.....as I believe so far our Government has said we won't take them..........so much for what our Government says, they will do as they're told by EU...as usual.
I never voted to join the E.U. and i still want out. The politicans in Brussels are milking the system. We have all of the E.U. trash over here, they are con artist, murderer's, rapist. I have not seen any benefit from the E.U.since that Twat Edward Heath sighned this country into the so called common market.
It is costing this country millions of pounds just to belong to a club. We had free trade with the whole world and with the commonwealth countries. We had good border controls. Where we once had a good fishing industry, they have ruined it. Just after the seconed world war, this country was almost self sufficient in growing our own food. We had apple orchards everywhere, did not need to import any. We had hop gardens, and mixed farming but the common market soon destroyed that for us.
Since joining the common market the border controls all went and in came the immigrants and all the criminals. This country has concreted over good farmland to build more and more houses to house these immigrants. All immigrants that come here benefits from our health system. If an englishman travels anywhere in europe and needs to go to hospital they have to pay for the service. Now we are about to have Turkey and Serbia join up and that will lead to another influx of crimminals
I have been to hospitals in London and it is spot the englishman, they are full of gabbling foriegners covered in headscarfs and sheets. Most of them do not speak english, so now we have forms with about a dozen foriegn langauges on them. I bet half of all foriengners have not paid a penny into the system and then we wonder why the NHS is in dept.
Norway, Denmark and Sweden don't belong to this expencive club and they are doing very well, so why does this stupid country go on paying millions into a black hole.
So yes i would like to see us come out of this black hole, and get rid of all foriegn crimminals, and all those foriegners that do not have jobs.
Totally agree with you just one thing Ted Heath didn't only sign us into the common market (EU) he CONNED the people with fear stories etc etc......
Anyhow however we were conned in to joining the common market (EU) it has grown arms and legs and turned into an giant octopus with powers that are strangling the life out the people in the UK and its clear from the comments people are not happy with the powers the EU have over the UK today......
Therefore its time our own "Elected" politicians listens to the people who elected them and get us out this very expensive club we the "People" do not want to be part off anymore......
Forget the excuses why we can't get out......
Give us the "People" our democratic right to a referendum and let us give you a "Mandate" which you are obliged to act on!
These people that run the EU are not elected by the people therefore have no sway or right to dictate to the British people!
Now Mr Cameron stand up and lead your people!
Just in case you have forgotten that the people you were "Elected" to represent was the "British" people!
You were not "Elected" to open the flood gates to anyone from foreign shores be it Europe or any country!
I find it rather ironic that Mr Cameron among others were raving about democracy around the time of the AV referendum (I voted No, in case were wondering), while surrendering our sovreignty to Europe. One wonders whether there's something more to this monstrous situation than meets the eye, as I cannot imagine that any truly Conservative politician believes that being part of this wrethched Union can possibly benefit Britain. Truly they cannot seriously believe that trade or positive diplomatic relations would cease if we withdrew? Do they suppose that, with the Euro in crisis, nations such as Germany and France would find new trading partners overnight? No, they need us, but we don't need their Union. What's the point of having a Prime Minister, or a Parliament, or any kind of voting mechanism at all when we are slowly but surely losing power to European bureaucrats who cannot be held accountable for their actions because nobody elected them to their posts in the first place?
There are 17 countries in Europe that are not part of the EU. Norway, and Switzerland are probably the most notable apart from Russia. These countries are mainly prosperous, and doing well. To say that we (the UK) need Europe to survive is utter rubbish. I am certain that almost everyone in the UK is happy to see us trade with the EU, but what we are opposed to is being dictated to by a bunch of politicians whom we did not elect, and even worse who we can’t vote out. Let me point out that business is all about selling product, or services at competitive prices, with good quality. Are China and India members of the EU – clearly the answer is NO. Yet these two countries sell vast amounts of product to the EU. Unfortunately Cameron is not a businessman, and clearly does not understand the way business works, and it would seem that neither do you.
Well said and I your views are expressed over and over throughout this thread (topic) I am sure your views are speaking for the vast majority off the population up and down the country.
The EU is a club where our politicians can make a choice to remain part off or leave, we traded with Europe before we were blinded by Ted Heath as to the positives for joining the Common Market as it was called back then.
We UK citizens are not being listened to by our elected politicians and are being refused our democratic right to have our say in a referendum and we have no way to force our politicians to represent our views.
This is were we need the "Right" of recall!
Where we can gather enough votes to recall our local MP should he not represent our views and force a local election and remove him or her!
The Right of Recall is what Nick Clegg should have went for and not the referendum on AV!
It would give us all more power over our elected MP up and down the country and End MP's towing the Party chief whips on major issue because if he/she knew we could Recall him/her they would vote for us not as party leaders dictate!
I havent read any of the replies as there are so many.
Above anything else the EU costs make no SENSE at all.
Imagine if you were struggling to pay your bills and the family next door needed money to pay theres. You'd have to say sorry no can do.
But lets face it were like the NHS of the EU. The rich pay to help the poor!
The cynic in me says that all this financial situation was used to force us into Europe so we could all suffer in this together believing in the safty in numbers idea.
Yet Id rather burn in hell than give up complete inderpendence of our country. The only country that has stood up and fought for freedom in 3 world wars. And been on the winning side everytime. Not bad for a country full of shopkeepers!
This stretches right across parliment. The whole lot at fault. Not just old Dave. New labour have to carry the blame of this country on there shoulders.
The Mangna Carta didnt stop the Barons going on the rampage again. So bits of signed paper doesnt stop greed, power and corruption.
If we want our country then we must vote for an alternative.
King George VI gave the government complete control.
Only when a monarch stands to face their people once more. A true king and leader will take us forward.
Will king Arthur really return.......
This is not a blame game...... we are all aware New Labour played their part by not ending spending sooner but it has to be said....... the Tories were promising pound for pound spending that New Labour was spending only spending it differently.......
Agreed no bit of signed paper will end greed, power or corruption, but real power should be in the hands off the people not in the hands off corrupt, greedy, power hungry politicians.......
The people need to rise up like in Greece and Arab countries and "Reign" in these Greedy, Corrupt and Power hungry politicians.
Real power will never be in the hands of the people. Becasue power corrupts. Just look at Russia. What should have been civil war to give the country back to the people ended up with paranoid mad dictators killing people. Eating and drinking in lavish buildings while the people starved and froze to death.
All animals need a pecking order. We need laws and rules to live by.
I just want to be able to goto work. Pay my Taxes, that should be used for the right reasons and the rest of my money I want to be able to live a nice life without worry.
The government know this is what people want so have to justify themselves by changing everything such as the NHS. What better result for everyone to see about the NHS is the amount of people who they save, thats it! or the police cating more criminals and keeping our streets safe. Oh no every government has to make changes. Rubbish.
They also have to increase our awerness of terrorist attacks so they can wrap a big arm around us and give us a cuddle and say dont worry where here to keep you safe. HA HA.
Over educated, under qualified and unwanted. I remember hearing Glender Jackson say that even if all of her constituency asked for capitol punishment she wouldnt vote for it in parliment as SHE didnt believe in it, so whats the point of her representing the people. That was on the John Gaunt radio program Talksport.
I wonder how many people would vote for a Richard Branson party?
If Mr Cameron is as strong as he claims to be I would suggest now is the time for the promised referendum on membership of the EU in order that the British people can vote to get out
before they make us bankrupt. Unlike Greece our assets have already been sold off cheap
so there won't be any money to be made there (for the tax payer at least).
try not being polite by addressing the ARSEHOLE WHO IS SELLING US DOWN THE RIVER BY HIM SAYING ITS ALREADY DECIDED BY LABOUR, BOLLOCKS JUST SAY NO LIKE ALL OTHER EURO CUNTRIES SAY, AND NO I DID NOT MISSPELL CUNTRIES
How sad it is that David Cameron cannot come out and say openly that no matter what the majority of the electorate want he is not prepared to give su e referendum on Europe. I voted to go into Europe purely for commercial reasons, as it was put to us,but it has got completely out of hand .Come David ask the people of this land that do not have vested interests in Europe.
The Magna Carter does bring up what would be some very interesting arguments legal and otherwise to what succesive Governments, and its leaders have consented to and allowed to happen here in GB. could not the pro anti EU campaigners mount a legal challenge using the Magna Carter as a legal reference point if not why not? Is it that they dont want to i fail to believe that some of these educated people have not thought of or looked at what is enshrined within the Magna Carter many of its dictates can never be altered many of which that are very relevent to what is happening here and now in GB and has been for far to long.
Out of Europe, Save Billions , chuck out all the undesriable's that we are now not allowed to because we are part of the EU, then we can start to look at the other convention of human rights that is getting completly out of hand two seperate issues but both need a strong British leader to defend us from not a wishey washey con/lib leader. Who will step up and be our next George the EU Dragon slayer? anyone i wonder
I have never been a supporter of European membership. It is a money pit, it has been proved on endless occasions that the EU parliament is rife with greed and corruption. It was once hailed as the new super power. Look at the mess it's in now. We are in the best position, on the outside looking in. Europe is for holidays and trading with, not "joining." It swallows billions of pounds of our money. For what? To bail out failing "member" countries who are trying to live the European dream. The problem is that's all it is, a dream.
We give millions away every year in foreign aid, but after the disastrous near bankrupted reign of Blair and Brown, shouldn't we be cutting back to help ourselves at home? Slightly off topic we give millions in "aid" to China. Why? They now have one of the largest economies in the world!
David I wish you all the luck in the world in your campaign to get us back on our feet. Don't deviate but remember Labour will twist everything to make it look like this mess is your doing.
I agree with your points in the EU but I have to disagree with the finger pointing at Labour.....
Firstly.......yes I was a life long labour man and yes labour should have reigned in spending much quicker but please do not delude yourself in to the blame game......
Tories were promising pound for pound spending as labour just in different ways before the "World" Banks started to collapse......... this was clearly a Global financial crises not solely a UK under labour.
You say labour will twist everything to make it look like it was Cameron's fault......
No one can place the financial mess at Cameron's feet just as it is not the fault off Blair and Brown......
What Cameron and the Tories can and should be "Judged" on is their efforts to solve the mess the Banks forced on all governments and if their policies to rectify the financial mess has not worked then its on the Tories and Cameron who have to be held accountable for their policy failures!
I voted against joining what was then called the common market. I did not see the point of
tying us to trade with European Countries when there is a whole wide world out there. I would remind you however that it was Ted Heath who lied to the people of this Country (and he admitted such) together with the Media in order to persuade the general populous that we should join. He knew at the time that it was intended to be more than a trading alliance. The
promised referendum took place under Harold Wilson's Government, that was a legacy inherited
from the Tories.
Why are we still in the EU - what do we get apart from a load of EU migrants - and a lot of pain from Brussels telling us what we can do and can't do - and we like the idots we are - follow the rules - I am old enought to remember joing the EU - didn;t get a choice then - really think we need one now - But I suspect the government is frightened of the result - so many people are against the constant drain of our resources (ie Money/NHS/Housing etc) that they already know the answer and don't know how to deal with it. The time for taking action is now - not keep leaving it a bit longer - its not getting better - its getting worse and we are sinking fast...
I totally agree with your comments but to answer your question to Why are we still in the EU!
Until we turn away from our tribal habits in voting for Tory, Labour and Lib Dem's not one off these three political party's will consider pulling out the EU ...... not one of these party's will give us the "Electorate" our say in a referendum.......
I used to vote labour all my life, then because of Blair and his illegal wars I changed to lib dem as the party off hope but now they have proven themselves as treacherous as Tory and labour.
However on the referendum on the EU there is one party that most would never consider but UKIP is the only party committed to withdrawing from the EU!
