Someone said :
Iceland is doing fine outside the EU because they didnt bail out their bondholders unlike us. We are landed with generations of debt they are not. The banking inquiry revealed the ECB forced us to bail out the bondholders.
Im in favour of an EU in some form but with power returned to the states in some areas. I also want the EU to accept referendum results that dont go their way which they never do.
Iceland is in the eea which means they are in the trading area like Norway, accept eu regulations, accept free movement which is a condition of the eea and have no say .
It isn't the eu that accepts referendum results its governments, if they choose to change small protocols and hold new referendums, that's their prerogative, if the voters are really convinced surely they will give the same answer ? Not change their minds.
There might be things that we are unhappy about with the institutions that make up the eu, there are probably things we are unhappy with our own governments as eu citizens.
The problem with the U.K. Referendum is it is full of misinformation, a political party faction is using it for its own political survival, and to survive ukip .
It's total political cynicism, most of the arguments they used against Scottish independence, they are now using to leave the eu.
Many of the things they blame the eu for are lies, exaggerations and deliberate misinterpretations while they deliberately ignore every benefit that the eu has brought .
I like the Romanian ad they put up when they felt discriminated against by the uk, our women look like Kate Middleton
