    Farmers are being paid NOT to grow crops, it why food is so expensive, in Italy farmers claim subsides for areas of land greater then the total area of Italy, what's done about it, nothing, why because it suits to allow them to get away with it, its similar in France & Spain.

    Now your just being harsh. If we don't leave, you watch the rush of EU benefit scroungers eager to cross that thin bit of sea between us and the French..
    Now here's an idea,, why don't we pay foreign benefit claimants the same rate they got in their original country? That'd stop em coming here Chippie, If you go and live in Poland, and are unemployed , you'll get paid benefits at a rate far less than you'd get here in the UK. (PS, you won't be able to claim child benefit for a child living back here in Blighty, unlike those who come to live here)

    What do ya think I mean?

    I don't know, for certain if it will end up like that or not.
    The whole thing may collapse which I don't find very likely to happen, but its either that or more and more legislation, regulations and infringements forced upon the members until one day we realise its too late.
    One or tother will happen, more than not the latter.
    Whoevers' controlling this multicultural experiment will not rest until the goal of European state is realized.

    Its a natural progression from a union state, it must evolve into a bigger more powerful state, they wont let it ride 'as is' and I'm sure many members will welcome it, especially those with little to lose.

    I don't think he expected a proper response. The BBC have a radio show where they challenge people to call in and justify why we would be better off out the EU. Very few people get chance to retaliate and answer the presenters question without being shot down brutally.

    Forum is not a radio show and i have to say it sounded like he was citing word for word from that radio show presenter.

    Glad to be of assistance :p be a 1001 in a second.

    Would that be Evan Davis or what ever his name is, he pees me off on his tv program, consistently interrupting the leave campaigners, but silence as a lamb when remain are talking.

    It might be as i cant stand him, impartiality is a key feature a presenter must hold and he does not hold that quality so i just avoid listening to any thing from him and hence why i don't even know his name.

    Ahh Evan Davis, Is he the one who presents the In/Out debate on BBC each week with an audience of undecided voters (carefully selected to represent the ethnicity of the UK) Got fed up of watching it after a few weeks, because he constantly interrupts anyone who disagrees with remaining in the EU.. Yep pretty unbiased reporter (not) ;);)
  11. That is indeed outrageous and needs to be stopped.

    But not by leaving. 'Cos that would be worse for us and the EU.

    (By the way, I was not 'on-line' when you posted these - at least not on SF; it keeps me logged on as long as my browser is open is on - so less of the sly cynical bits, eh?! :p)
  12. Good man. Well said.

    Let's hope he follows it up and keeps the pressure on and doesn't leave it hanging as a nice YouTube vid.
  13. So, pure conjecture on your part? Always look for the worst case scenario as far as you are concerned to suit your 'argument'?
  14. How much would your Haddock cost out of the EU?

    Do you know? If not, what's are you doing trying to make it a point for your argument?

    CO2 tax is crippling? Tell me how that will reduce if we leave? Are you telling me that the UK won't need to comply?!

    You have got to be kidding.

    Car mods bothering you? Me too - I've had kit-car restrictions coming out of my ears over the past couple of decades.

    But, y'know what? I have to admit they are largely sensible.

    etc etc etc.

    You really don't think a federal state of Europe is not the ultimate aim of the EU, man you really have got your head up your *rse.

    The immigrant issue crops up regularly,one way to sort it would be to do as other countries have done,In Oz they'll only let you in if you have something they want,it may be brickies this month,next month it may be doctors.We don't need to let all these people in to do the jobs they are doing,most of them are non specialised anyway.What we need is to make the lazy people over here work!There's a family over the road from me,the kids have never worked since leaving school,they're in their 20's now,I think she's claiming for herself and the youngest who's about 8 years old(one parent benefit)she's now got a bloke living with her who does work yet he parks his van around the corner? go figure that one.
    In the 80's I worked down south when the building boom was on,a bloke at the time commented that the only people who weren't working were those who didn't want a job,,he was right,I worked agency and if I got a job I didn't like I'd jack it and have another one next morning.
    The trouble is there are a lot of people these days who don't want to work,there was a programme on recently about people who were too fat to work,one woman really annoyed me,she had no medical problems,she was just a greedy cow,she was about 25 stone and moaned constantly, "I've tried losing weight but it doesn't happen"she said as she made her breakfast,which incidentally looked like a washing up bowl containing half a box of cornflakes and a pint of milk!,Later on she was cooking dinner for her,her equally fat mother and boyfriend.She peeled a 5lb bag of spuds to make chips for the 3 of them! and she burned the pies,you'd think that someone who's hobby was eating could at least cook properly.
    The best thing was a woman who'd had a gastric band op,she was saying she'd bought a blender so she could liquidise chops and kebabs as she'd not been able to eat them since the op! We need to stop all these migrants coming over,pay people a decent wage,and make our own people work,there areyoung people now who's parents lived off the benefits system and they are quite happy to do the same, "my mum and dad did ok so why should I work?" .

    The annoying thing with the co2 tax is the worst offenders aren't involved with it,the USA and China are the worlds worst offenders yet they wouldn't sign up to a plan to reduce emmisions,so while the rest of us try and cut back they just carry on,pointless trying if you ask me,climate change is a world problem and needs everyone on board.
  19. Only a conniving cynic - for that is what you are - would post that list and try and suggest bias on these organisation's part... :rolleyes:

    'Rony, meet your match.

    (Seriously. I mean, the NFU would be anybody's puppet for a paltry £100K?! :rolleyes: )
