Then why is the law for kettles to be less powerful coming in to all countries in the EU?


I don't know what the kettles law is.

Either way, yes the EU has a bunch of laws that apply for the entire EU. However that doesn't mean EU states can't have their own laws or polecys of how to handle internal stuff. Also even if a EU member does something that's against the EU it'll still not be enforced, just look at Poland and what their doing

Here's a whole page of reasons why the UK should stay in the EU.






You know, even if Norway was a part of the EU they still wouldn't have had to pay Greece. Only countries in the Euro zone had to pay for the greeks. But some countries outside the Euro zone like Sweden, UK and belive it or noe even China choose to help them

I have a question:
Will the exit of UK will be the beginning of the end of the EU, with more countries wanting to leave?
I am just curious.

Depends on how things turn out for Britain and the EU. If the Brexit turns out to be a good thing for the UK then it's possible but if it turns out that it was the wrong decision for Britain then most likley not. It could even help to strengthen the bond between the nations of the EU because then they could use Britain as an example against leaving the EU.

There's good and bad to both sides, I think we should at least try leaving the EU if only for a time to see if it truly is better to be free or not, we've got all these theories on what could happen but not every theory is bound to be true and Britain certainly isn't doing too great these days being inside the EU

Wasn't the United Kingdom "free" prior to joining the European Union? Why would it be hard to revert back?

----------------------------
Personally, as an United States citizen (American), I would encourage you to vote to leave. Why should some other countries dictated how another runs or trades or anything?

Off topic but I feel the US should pull out of NATO. NATO is no longer important nor is it functional. I am also against the World Bank and it's influences. Unfortunately it has a lot of money that most countries need to function operational.

Yes, these are exactly the countries I think about everytime someone mentions strong trade economies. [/sarcasm]
I haven't been following this monstrosity as much as I should've (being non-UK)



What if the UK decides to trade with those "free-market" countries, but their economy just isn't up to it?
They are quite a ways away, so transportcosts would add up, whilst trying to not pay fees for trading with the EU (which are there, right?)


Frankly .. I've got no idea what is best for whom and why, but I can't help but scratch my head
and wonder if most people have thought about ALL the aspects and consequences,
without going straight for the classic anti-immigrant trainthought.

I dare not say or ask more, being an uneducated outsider on this topic.

If someone feels like answering a few of my questions, feel free!



Xavy out.

I'm actually quite surprised to see this from an American (,but then again .. maybe not that much ..)
If I were to ask you what America is .. is it not a United States of America ?

You should look at Europe in the same way.

All American states operate separately, have their own laws and jurisdictions and what not,
but still listen to the same central government who funds things like the FBI, Military, etc.

and also things like the FDA ; making sure ALL drugs are safe throughout all states.
I'm not an American, so I can't come up with a lot of (better?) examples, but your vision of just leaving kinda surprised me.

I can't imagine California just deciding to leave and become independant again, for example.



Kind regards,
Xavy

Xavy,

We, USA - today, are not independent countries that had our own language, currency, trade, and independence suddenly tied with other countries deciding what happens in another. All 50 states are American citizens. Do you call yourself European Unionist or a Belgian? Comparing us to the European Union is like comparing apples and oranges. Supposedly the EU was to benefit each country in Europe, not to become a sovereignty country.

If you are happy with the circumstances, good, stay when it is time for your country to decide it's future. I'm for freedom, freedom of trade, freedom to decide your own rules and punishment if you don't without external entities (countries) making that decision. Or having a part of that decision. I'm not in favor of Mexico deciding what happens to us seeing that they can't do anything within their own. Nor any other country in the "Americas".


So I am shock you would think that Americans would want to be in favor of it. We love our freedom and independence. There might be a few that might want a union such as yours, but the majority of us don't. The beauty of being an American is that another American can disagree - freedom of expression. Thus why I stated "Personally" because that was me as a citizen stating what I felt was best.

California has it's plus and minuses, more minuses than pluses in my opinion. If it wanted to leave, I would be holding the door open.

If you disagree, as it sounds you do, explain to me why would it be best for UK to remain in the EU? What are their gain vs loss?

My reasoning for staying is simple every major right wing news outlet in the uk wants out, why? because the EU has labour and environmental laws we have to follow we leave the current government are free to do whatever they want without being rebbuffed by the eu laws that supersede our own. those who want out tend to want 'soverignty' of our borders and laws but to be frank immigration wouldn't come down by much if we left the eu.

Sounds like a liberal whining i know but i happen to like having some rights as a worker. add into this we have no idea economically what will happen if we leave its all speculation then id rather stay with what i know than risk another recession or damaging our trade.

just my opinion though im voting in

In. I don't trust the Tories big brother policies as far as I can shit in the wind.

Luckily I've got dual British and Irish nationality so I can fuck off to The Republic of Ireland if the UK leaves Europe, giving the Tories free reign to recreate George Orwell's Nineteen Eight-Four in real life. It isn't like they aren't already trying...

We can make a new union with the US, Britain, Canada, Mexico, Japan and maybe Australia and NZ, with hookers and booze, wait....forget the countries, lets just keep the hookers and booze.
