Why are we a member of the European Union, does anybody know? The UK is not within the European Monetary Union, we still have the pound and most of the Europe has the Euro, allowing for an easy flow of money and merchandise all over the EU, except towards and from the UK. Actually, imports into the UK are very cheap, but exports are expensive, therefore they are rare. UK goods and services are too expensive for the EMU states, but that does not really matter, because the UK is only partially accepting the Schengen Agreement anyway, so even if you are a European Union citizen, you are not really welcome in the UK. There are additional and not really less ridiculous things happening, making the UK the outcast within the EU, which the UK uses to strengthen the bromance with the USA, an abusive relationship that only profits the Americans and puts Britain under additional strain.
David Cameron is already five years in office and has done everything wrong, has been useless in the EU parliament and was unable to free the UK from the American burden Blair has established, which made the UK a puppet to the whims of the Big Brother overseas. The genius Cameron furthermore promises, aided by his Tory backslappers, that he will leave the bloc by 2017, which will further ostracise the British from anything that matters. The next step is becoming the next star on the American Flag, I suppose, the 51st state, or rather beg the Americans to take the UK, which probably would not happen.
Of the dozens of decisive votes, ever since 2010, when Cameron grabbed the PM seat and fancied himself a statesman, the UK voted mostly no or abstained and nobody gave a darn, it still got adopted, no matter the UK vote. UK is generally aiming towards undermining the EU, just to please the USA and to get a nice pat in the back and a wet handshake, ruining all possible friendships with most important business partners and importers in Europe and arching an ignorant brow towards the continent the UK is physically deemed a part of. The worst thing is that if one day the UK leaves the EU, it will not matter to the EU one bit, but it will have horrendous consequences on the British economy and trade.
Tory politicians claim that the EU partnership was vital because of the influence UK would have, but now does not have at all and therefore the EU idea is obsolete, which is like a right handed man claiming he can chop off his left hand, since that it is not needed. Horrendous stupidity such as this is what has alienated the UK from almost every single European partner and has weakened the UK economy, despite the inflated GDP, which is based mostly on the stability of the British Stock Exchange. Unfortunately for all Tory geniuses, that stability will vanish as soon as the UK leaves the EU, because the EU will shift their business priorities to the Berlin Stock Exchange and other inner EU marketplaces, abandoning the UK as in retaliation.
Do you know why the UK is constantly experiencing increasing numbers of unemployed? The reason is simple, any expansion necessitates real expansion, but if the UK blocks any expansions towards the EU, then no additional jobs can be created. By refusing to completely integrate into the EU, the UK is creating a hostile environment for investors from all over Europe and furthermore, many overseas partners and Asian partners are reluctant to invest into an economy that will collapse in 2017, once the great Cameron declares independence and finds out that it comes at a cost.
