    Not trying to stir the pot here but a genuine ask - what are reasons for staying in the EU?

    My simplistic view of all this is that the EU consists of 28 "families".

    Four of whom are employed (Germany, France, Italy and the UK) but one is actually working "off book" (Italy) and should actually declare bankruptcy. The remaining 24 are all out of work, up to their ears in debt and standing with their hands out.

    Why should the 4 working "families" support the 24 out of work, debt ridden ones?
    Because Banking/Corporate elements in those 4 families caused the debt in the first place maybe? the people who have trashed everything think they have got away with it,they havn`t.The greed will catch them up and eat them alive in the end.

    The main reason to stay in EU in my opinion is the european court of human rights. Without it I fear some rights we take for granted will slowly be taken away from us.

    Many states not in the EU belong to the European Court of Human Rights, it is quite a separate entity, although people tend to think it is part of the EU, probably because the word 'European' appears in its title.
