I wonder whether it is governmant dicision mostly.
How much it can affect people there if UK is not EU memeber?
As a British citizen, I'd like to say that not all Brits hate the EU. I love it. And most of my friends and family in the UK do as well. In fact, I'd very much like to see the UK get more involved in the EU and form a new political union across the continent.
ERRRATA: the Treaty of Masstricht, the poeple, governments, etc.
Having reread the above, I apologise for my typing errors
100% yes. I oppsed us joining in 1972. It was never simply a free trade Common Market. The original terms of the Treaty of Rome called for an unqualified "ever closer union among thw peoples of Europe" `- a phrase repeated in teh Treaty OF Masstricht. No laws can be enacted by member states that contravene EU law, Social, political and so-caled 'human rights' issues are now determined by the EU and its agencies, open immigration and free movement of poeple as well as capital are required whether governemnts like them or not. Only the European Parliament is democratically accountable and yet our lives are determined by EU institutions and bureaucrats. The Euro has been an almost total disaster. I could go on with this list of what is wrong with the EU> Countries like Norway have a free trade agreement with the EU without being members so where are the concrete advantages?
