Topic: Even before any 'Brexit' vote, UK losing sway in Europe


By Paul Taylor BRUSSELS (Reuters) - After decades of punching above its weight in Europe, Britain's influence in the European Union is waning, even before we know whether a promised referendum on "Brexit" will go ahead. London's partners are keen to keep Britain in the 28-nation bloc, but not at any price.

UK should pull out of the EU, it costs UK mega millions a year to prop up other countries and gets bugger all out of it.

When there was a referendum years ago which put UK into the EU, only one person admitted he voted yes to join, the rest said a resounding NO. I still say the vote was fiddled.

I hope Cameron has the guts to hold another referendum.

The United Kingdom may now be a second-rate power, but the London's unparalleled legacy as a global financial capital still underpins its pre-eminence.

We have one of the fastest growing economies in Europe, plus for its size, we still have one of the best voluntary enlisted armed forces in the world.

The territorial army units are second to none. Most are ex regular with years of experience.

I'm glad the empire has gone to be honest, the down side we lost a lot of brilliant oversea's postings.
