If Prime Minister David Cameron had secured a deal from the European Union in which God Save The Queen became the new European anthem, certain sections of his own party would still have said that it wasn´t enough. I would say that Britain and the European Union are moving in the right direction and at least the EU appears to want Britain to remain a member. The EU has made important concessions to Britain: not enough for many Eurosceptics, but they can have their say in the forthcoming referendum. David Cameron shouldn´t wait; the referendum should take place sooner rather than later. I think this round of negotiations has proved that the EU is prepared to fight to keep Britain as a member. I did think that Cameron would get nowhere and Britain would have been quietly shown the door. The next step is for both camps to explain in detail why they believe that Britain should stay/or leave the European Union. If Britain goes, what are the consequences not only for the British economy but for the hundreds of thousands of expats who live in Spain? I have my doubts that Britain can stand alone: times have changed and Europe remains Britain´s biggest export market. Many firms have invested in Britain solely because Britain is a member of the European Union. Would they go if Britain left? Plenty of unanswered questions which need an answer. This is a big decision which can´t be taken lightly.

So,Jason,have you seen the UK newspapers this morning?,the EU made a laughing stock out of Cameron,who actually came away with virtually nothing but tried to tell us otherwise but this time he was seen for what he is:a spineless creature without a back bone who caves in at the slightest pressure then tries to claim that black is white but this time even the right-wing newspapers castigated him as a fool and delusional who tried to sell us a lie but this morning,Cameron is a laughing stock,forsaken by many in his own party and by all the press. This has probably made the majority of people in the UK decide to vote to leave the EU.

Only 28 countries are in the EU and many of them have economies not worth toilet paper and billions of euros and pounds are being poured into many of them,a great deal of which is being pocketed,billions more have been pocketed in other EU countries. The rest of the world gets by quite nicely without being in the EU and are doing very nicely,thank you,ask China,Singapore,Honk Kong,Taiwan,Australia,India,America,Canada,New Zealand,among many others and most of these countries trade with EU countries without being members,do you really believe that the entire EU would cease trading with us if we left,if we have something to sell that someone else wants,they will buy it,in or out.
