Britain leaving the EU – leaders back this choice!3
By - Posted 26th March, 2016 at 11:00 pm The Real World

More than 250 business leaders have officially announced that they support the exit of Britain to leave the European Union and the list keeps growing? However, leaders have now started a battle and have been signing paperwork that says we should stick in the EU. This list however only consists of 36 leaders. What does this mean? Will Britain finally end up leaving the EU and are we strong enough to do so? Find out more by reading below!

It’s a tough choice. Does Britain leave the EU or do we continue in the European Union? The list has been growing where business leaders have been signing paperwork to announce that we should leave the EU. More than 250 business leaders have signed this paperwork and three of these have been confirmed as former HSBC chief executive Michael Geoghegan, the founder of Phones 4u John Caudwell and the hotelier Sir Rocco Forte. A referendum on whether the UK should stay in the EU will be held on 23 June.

There are many discussion topics going on as to why we should, or should not leave the EU. Would we save more money if we did, or would we have more jobs? It’s hard to call when no-one really knows the outcome before it’s actually taken place. Regardless, on the 23rd June the UK will settle a question that’s been rumbling close to the surface of British politics for a generation: should the country remain within the European Union, or leave the organisation and go it alone. Some pro’s and con’s however to what leaving the EU would do for Britain are below, along with some statics that I have found.

Membership Fee – Leaving the EU would result in an immediate cost saving, as the country would no longer contribute to the EU budget. Last year, Britain paid in £13bn, but it also received £4.5bn worth of spending, so the UK’s net contribution was £8.5bn”. That’s about 7 per cent of what the Government spends on the NHS each year.

Immigration – Under EU law, Britain cannot prevent anyone from another member state coming to live in the country, while Britons benefit from an equivalent right to live and work anywhere else in the UK. The result has been a huge increase in immigration into Britain, particularly from eastern and southern Europe. According to the Office for National Statistics, there are 942,000 eastern Europeans, Romanians and Bulgarians working in the UK, along with 791,000 western Europeans – and 2.93m workers from outside the EU. China and India are the biggest source of foreign workers in the UK.

Britain’s place in the world – Britain would remain a member of Nato and the UN, but it may be regarded as a less useful partner by its key ally, the US. The American government fears that the “EU referendum is a dangerous gamble that could unravel with disastrous consequences for the entire continent”, says The Guardian.

So what do you think? Would leaving the EU be the best thing for Britain, or should we stay in? What will you be voting for? Discuss below!
