Truth is artless and innocent - like the eloquence of nature, it is clothed with simplicity and easy persuasion; always open to investigation and analysis, it seeks exposure because it fears not detection.

1, We are a net contributor to EU coffers. Costs us £billions
2. EU supports countries eg Greece that make no effort to balance their books as are financially supported by hard working countries
3. EU has given us many good laws but many more silly ones (eg straight cucumber).
4. We are probably the only country that actually abides by EU laws. France, Italy etc don't as regards agriculture (battery hens) & competitive tendering
5. Within the euro zone all countries are equal (but some are more equal than others as Orwell would have said). Euro is going down the pan so Germany wants more integration right up to political integration. Giving a United States of Europe - Will this be elected?
6. EU beurocracy wastes billions of money & hasn't ever balanced its books. What company could do this & still trade?
I could go on & on & on
Reasons I want to stay?
None - the so called market is not equal as bribery & corruption with tenders are not adhered to.
We are a net importer of workforce all who are allowed to use our scant public services

Now Osborne mentions a Referendum?
I thought the offer by Cameron a while ago that it would be considered nearer the election was just the usual hype to get voters onside. I wonder if he is getting jittery after all. By the time we get to the real campaign it will die a death. He offered it before IIRC but qualified it to say that Parliament would be voting - not us. I would like to be able vote but I believe that this is just a mid term campaign lure. Milliband offered his 'lure' recently but I can't remember what it was!
