The fundamental problem is that it is run by an undemocratic Soviet model.

The EU has no interest in a model based upon Parliamentary Democracy!

Ahaha - have you seen the opposition this time around though? Dave is just telling the plebs what he thinks they want to hear.

The EU doesn't need to be reformed, it needs to be rescinded. End of.

Obviously we need some kind of multi-lateral framework, but the problem is that it is a dictatorship of unelected Councils. Soviet means to be run by Councils. MEP's get 6mins per year each to talk in Parliament, they do not introduce legislation and their votes can be overturned by the European Commission, which is run by appointees. This is very much like the Soviet system, and nation states are not allowed to break from what is "agreed".

The issue is not Europe vs UK, it is between freedom and dictatorship.

In Britain, Parliamentary Democracy has facilitated stability in these Isles over 300yrs. There is no risk in reverting back liberties to Westminster and both Holyrood and Cardiff.

There is risk of sanctions against the UK by the EU, though muted if we pull away at present, since the EU needs trade with us more than us with it, and we have been a global trading nation for centuries capable of trading with the rest of the world. Heck, we have a burgeoning domestic economy that could be tapped if our economy began to boom by rolling back VAT hikes and all the stupid regulations including the decimation of our energy production capacity by shutting down expensive power stations paid for with the blood of workers.

@mark - If you want to protest then spoiling your ballot paper is counted, not voting isn't counted.

Pete, Greens would be great if they understood that plants breathe CO2.

They do not understand that water vapour is the principal greenhouse gas and its concentrations are beyond our control and are regulated by solar activity, just as the sun will dry clothes, I assure you that it controls evaporation from the oceans.

If they acknowledged that photosynthesis is massively boosted by higher CO2 levels and that we are CO2 starved, they can go about greening the deserts, because the desertification we see today in Africa, Australia and beyond occurs principally because photosynthesis is not strong enough to weather these areas.

This article shows that the optimum CO2 levels are between 1000 and 1300ppm and yet present ambient CO2 is just over 300ppm. At 1000ppm photosynthesis is increased a whopping 50%, with peak performance at around 1000ppm.

Here is the government study on that:

The war on CO2 was re-direction of the Green movement. Until they recognise that folly, they are not worth voting for, because their policies will destroy the economy and environment. The war on coal is causing a surge in dangerous nuclear and fracking.

Pete Green ,

Do you believe in the anthropogenic climate change hypothesis strongly enough to take your children to be sterilised ?

If not do you think the ends justify the means and approve of rationing energy as a means of reducing population by energy starvation ?

Do you consider yourself one of the genetically superior elite types who originate the green agenda and consider it their duty to get evolution back on track by culling the rest of us who they consider to be sub-human ?

Libertas ,

I can't understand your aversion to hydraulic fracturing .

It's standard oil field practice and has been performed extensively onshore Germany since the 1950's and onshore the UK since the mid 1980's without problem .

The problem with coal is it's very difficult to clean the flue gases of sulphur , mercury and heavy metals sufficiently well .

Also look how many hundreds of square miles of Germany have been rendered uninhabitable by bulldozing the topsoil and overburded to get at the lignite . Take a look at this picture to see the reality of their EnergyWeinde which is trumpeted by greens :-

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/19/world/europe/german-village-resists-plans-to-strip-it-away-for-the-coal-underneath.html?_r=0

Hydraulic fracturing is keyhole surgery in comparison and a lot less risky for groundwater .

I think if you were to really look into hydraulic fracturing your fears would dissolve .
