    What is EY? Never heard of it.

    They never fully bought into the EU to begin with. E.g. they refused to succumb to the Euro & kept their own currency.

    The European Common Market was originally just 6 members, designed to facilitate TRADE ONLY. E.g. they all agreed to use the metric system, set certain trading standards to ease trade, cut paperwork. That UK originally supported. But EU has degenerated from a harmonized trading zone, promoting trade among members, to a vast unelected bureaucratic supra-government mandating rules & regulations that ultimately are not beneficial to member-countries.

      Good answer. I signed up for the Common Market. Blair put us into the Lisbon treaty with NO consultation. WE now have Brussels ruling our lives.

    I assume you mean joining the EU? At one point they were a world leader, respected with a high place in global society, both during the height of their empire and later during WW2. Like America they've fallen into global disfavor. Traits which were once praised for making them strong, decisive leaders are now vilified by an international community which is jealous and desires to rise through the ranks on the backs of these global juggernauts.
