EU Referendum Poll (UK membership): Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or should it leave?

Posted by: GabeLipworth

With David Cameron's reforms, and a set date for the referendum, let's try to make this poll give us an idea of what would happen. The EU has been a huge problem for Britain in terms of migration, sovereignty and cost. The EU costs 11 billion pounds a year and the UK will probably succumb to further political union. However, David Cameron reformed the EU which solves most of these problems, but are these reforms set in stone? Could they last forever?

  • The United Kingdom should REMAIN a member of the European Union

  • The United Kingdom should LEAVE the European Union

  • ya bitch

  • While I do not like the EU, I think that the UK is better off inside the EU than it is outside the EU. If the UK leaves the EU that would put the economy at risk, labour standards would decline and the human rights act would be on the chopping block.

The only problem with the European Union is a single currency. If the currency falls in one country, there is a risk it will fall in the other countries

@Mclachlan The EU's main problems (from an outsiders perspective) is that it is 1) far to complicated with far to many exceptions to its own laws and 2) it tries to occupy the area between a federation and a confederacy in an attempt to get the strength and freedom of both respectfully, but only ends up getting their weaknesses. The EU either needs to back off and let each country essentially run itself (confederacy) or become far more involved in its members internal affairs (federation). Where it currently stands, its just inefficient and a mess.

@Mclachlan I really like what the New Italian Left coalition is proposing on that issue, which is that the Euro should be gradually and intentionally disolved and its assets distributed to the Eurozone nations based on GDP and need.

The Greek economy is sucking and the other countries have to continuously bail them out. This is why I do not like the single currency, and just bailing Greece in general
