For selfish reasons I do not want the UK to pull out as I am planning to retire to Spain, however if it were to happen there is not only a plan B but possibly C and, D.
l B) Money thrown at Europe invested in the UK
l C) Because EU sells more to UK than the other way round a trading agreement would be drawn up
l D) EU nationals would not have right to settle in UK and be entitled to Benefits
So maybe the time is right for the other members of the EU to offer some olive branches to the UK in stead of constantly berating them and giving UKIP ammunition to argue for the pulling out of the EU
