Thing is that most of their income is financed through the EU support funds for developing aka poor regions.
UK is a net payer, not beneficiary. Idc about some little village that got a new gym. What matters is whether the bottom line is black or red.
And what exactly stopped them doing so from inside the EU?
Several reasons, for example having hundreds of rules and regulations that the eu forces upon members like UK which drive up costs and make certain goods and services unprofitable. Without those added costs for all the eu imposed rules and regulations like hundreds for something as simple as a toothbrush or towel, making such items or providing such services would be economically viable.
I read Adam Smith when I was 16 Dirk and I don't recall many passages relevant to the situation three centuries later
Its the same basic supply and demamd/equilibrium. Without tons of rules and regulations, tariffs, taxes, etc products become cheaper both export and import. As price drops, the equilibrium point for supply and demand increases meaning more demand and more supply to meet said demand.
Again please provide examples of where the British consumer will be better off next year, not in 50 years.
It will take a few years, certainly not 50. For one the money that the UK pays into the EU could be spent better on the brits, not propping up Bulgaria Romania Poland etc.
Also things like having sovereignty and independence to rule your own affairs, like with immigratiin policies, and be beholden to a capital outside your country cannot be monetarily quantified.
Britain is being treated like a piggy bank much the same way the US was by China, NATO, UN and tons of other countries and institutions. Now that Trump is in charge that is changing dramatically. Unfortunately you guys don't habe a Trump. Closest people would be farage or Johnson but they don't hold any important posts like in the past.
Man I love the videos of farage berating the liberals at the EU. All the commie globalists like verhofstadt who has to be the ugliest persin I've ever seen, got all mad and were booing him. Farage sent a shout out to the right wing meps from Poland saying they should join UK and form better partnerships. Actually farage has praised Poland and Hungary numerous times at the ep, but met with boos, head shaking, etc from the multikulti globalists
Britain has been trading with modern China for decades, long before the EU. They already have a network in place.
Actually probably closer to 2 3 plus centuries. The British even fought 2 wars to keep pushing drugs onto the Chinese. To.my understanding though they don't have nearly as much trade as other eu nations like Hungary which I believe has the most back and forth trade with China.
