Reasons to keep out of Europe’s EU

Posted in The European Union (EU) with tags on August 5, 2008 by redandwhitestripes

It just occurred to me today that it would be useful to collate some of the evidence and arguments against EU membership. So let’s begin!

This is a new idea which I will update regularly.

1) Corruption is increased exponentially by the EU

MEP’s censor details of expenses claimed to the sum of 140 million

2) Lack of transparency.

EUP elects to clarify “documents” as papers on the official register only. (See ‘Private Eye’ issue 1213)

3) It’s undemocratic.

The “no” vote to the Lisbon treaty has been treated with utter contempt. (See this video too)

Group forming rules are being changed to squeeze our euro-sceptics.

Ask Jean Marie for a great speech on the EU!
