The EU is a curate's egg.  I like what I consider to be the good parts - ie their insistence that we have good air quality to breathe, and because of the nature of air, that is an international issue. 

But I don't like a lot of other things.  What I have never seen is a clear balance sheet of how much it would impact us financially, for better or worse, if we left.  I know for a fact that if we left, while we would be absolved from certain incredibly high payments into the Eurofund (much of it paying for totally unaccounted for MEP expenses, unaudited accounts and projects which cost millions and, like for example, EU funded roads in Spain that go literally nowhere) we would still, if we wanted to carry on trading with the rest of the EU, as we would, have to pay millions if not billions to be allowed to do that while having no vote at influential meetings.  Why can't we see a proper breakdown of pros and cons of remaining, financial and other?  Someone has done it.  They need to share it.
