Chipperfield: Brexit would isolate us


Maybe a bit late to reply but...I cannot leave misinformation unchallenged. I note that the bent banana has also returned - despite my posting the real situation. It is untrue that the EU is unaudited. Yet another myth. Useful summary of the situation below. http://www.richardcorbett.org.uk/the-eu-accounts-have-never-been-signed-off/ It is untrue that laws are made in secret. They go before the EU Parliament - which can be viewed: after having been to the Council of Ministers which *hey*, happen to be leaders of governments including ours. The EU Parliament can be watched online as can other meetings on a live stream. See link below. http://audiovisual.europarl.europa.eu/Page.aspx?id=44&menu=video Bet one does not see many UKIP MEPS attending ....they get paid though. And this is how EU laws are actually made. http://europa.eu/eu-law/decision-making/procedures/index_en.htm There are 'in camera' discussions in the Council of Ministers as some subjects will be sensitive (security for example) but this goes for our Government too. Finally, it is not true to say that security in Europe is wholly down to NATO. NATO is bricking itself about the impact on the EU following a UK exit. The worry is that the whole fabric will unravel like a dropped stitch in a jumper. Putin is rubbing his hands with glee (.. did not Nigel Farage say some nice things about Putin?). And actually, I am old enough to remember the USA before we joined Europe and the general public knew even less about us then apart from London Fog and Bobbies. The Irish Bostonians hated us. And on a visit to the States we once bumped into some very drunk Irish Americans who claimed to be in the State Department and they said that if they had had their way, Hitler would have won the 2WW.
