    The EU is clearly sinking economically speaking like the Titanic, so unless the UK want its Economy to be dragged down with it, they better get off from the doomed voyage now!

    Yes they should leave, EU was a good idea but has degenerated into a fascist state ruled by unelected bureaucrat's in Brussels. It is estimated that 98% of legislation passed in member countries actually comes from these Brussels bureaucrats, true democracy in Europe is dead.
    May this also be a warning to Thailand and the other Asian countries forming the Asian Economic Group.

    D1: Your comments have little to do with the article. Nitpicking at them for GMT and everything else isn't making a valid comment. It's being snitty.

    It seems to me that the folks in the UK are tired of being overly regulated by people across the channel. I bet people in other countries on the mainland are tired of it too (the ones who don't benefit from EU leaders' nepotism, anyway).

    In my opinion the uk should keep their own currency, but remain in the trade block. They can then us the currency to control their own economy ( to some degree) by purposely making it stronger or weaker.

    UK is the most greedy country for maintaining a supremacy in the world until 18th century.
    They has thought just to become the leader country in the world. So, English became the International language. And, the world-time also has moved in a circle round the Greenwich Mean Time in London. Always they has thought that UK wants to stand at the top of the world.
    The organization"EU"was constructed by Germany and France,etc. So, Until now, UK has repeated to grumble out their reply against EU's each policy with making a moue of discontent.
    If UK decided to participate to the EU, UK must not obstruct and disturb EU's each policy.
