greece never qualified in the first instance,

they cheated their way in and should be kicked out

For that I agree with you but then so has more than half of the current EU members, especially the former eastern European bloc.

But when you have a referendum (2005) the government ignore the result. What a democracy.

 

So confident that no country will leave the EU. Give everyone a referendum vote then. Even Juncker has acknowledged that other countries would leave if you give them a referendum.. I would put my money on Italy leaving with the possibility of Greece and a few others like Hungary.

With that referendum a 32 % showed up. With a wish of 17,9 % of the Dutch electorate the Netherlands does not change. Second: We have a Government + Parliament to decide.

For the rest, see my comment under # 75. No more nations as the English wants to commit commercial + financial suicide.

Why any other EU nation would follow ?

Indeed, seeing one's country completely divided as the U.K.(Leavers-Remainers) after a referendum, is not really something other countries will consider as a model to follow. 

Now if the U.K could fix their intern problems (Leavers / Remainers / Parliament) and again being an united and democratic nation, other european countries may reconsider.

So being part of an Unelected Quango is not a good enough reason to leave, they Deserve all they are going to get,

Regardless if only 32% showed up. Its a referendum. You can't be counted and complain if you don't participate.

 

Then you have the never to talk about democracy. Your government totally ignored the result That is anti democratic.

 

You keep going on about suicide. Besides the melodramatics, it would seem many non Brits here (admittedly some Brits too) keep going on about this. I know this might come as a surprise but there is a big world out there.

 

Many countries do exceptional well outside of the EU. The UK will be one of them. Leaving the corrupt, protectionist EU is the priority for me and I know many others, so keep your melodramatics to yourself and concentrate on why your country and others in the EU referendum, results are just ignored. Especially as you like many others like to use the word democratic.

Perfect economic sense. Waste of money but the the EU is awash with wasted money and civil servants, paid extortionate salaries for nothing. The EU has had more than its share of money from the UK. Time to wake up and smell the coffee, it will have to look elsewhere for the sugar.

If you don't like globalism, which is an essential part of modern capitalism, you can always vote for Corbyn.

The driver behind globalism is NOT PRIMARILY a growing urge to gain a global market dominance. The driver is increased worldwide trade which benefits the vast majority of people. 

Yup, the reason why banks and large corporations invest heavily in globalisation is because they want to "benefit make the vast majority of people". 

Right. Absolutely.
