One of them is biting the hand that feeds. The other is not.
Some debt movements and money creation isn't very nourishing.

Now I think there is a lot of good within the EU, however there is also too much attention given to each countries individual political needs rather than the needs of the population as a whole
The UK is the worst offender, are we not discussing its individual needs instead of the needs of the union's population as a whole ?

Thanks for the information , which was very enlightening. The only problem is that our system in many ways is more generous to it's citizens than perhaps yours, but we seem to have to give it to any body from the rest of Europe just to appease the EU political masters in the EU. It is this sort of thing that upsets people here in the UK, but perhaps you would say that is the price of belonging to the club, but every club considers it rules and changes them now and then.
As MD11 explained, the problem is that the UK system needs to be revamped to tackle the problem. UK politicians say they're tied to the EU rules and can't do anything, but that's BS
. They'd rather talk than work, is the problem.
I've seen one of the out proponents (a cabinet member I think) talk again about thousands of rules for the size of vegetables etc., that stifle the economy. Every country has such rules, with the EU they're the same rules in 28 countries. If the UK gets out and can change their rules, what will the benefits be ? They won't be able to sell stuff that isn't to the EU standards outside the UK proper, so they won't change anything, and just won't have any say in the making of the rules.

I would say the UK is more of a a security liability for the rest of Europe than více versa.
Indeed for decades islamists were left doing their hate preaching in the UK, many came from France or North Africa where they were "persecuted". Still today the UK accepts things that are unthinkable here, like sharia courts, accepting demands for female doctors in hospitals, special hospital burqas, etc.
