UK needs the EU
No rush of comments to show how much value the EU brings to the UK?
Perhaps you can add one to the effect that the UK would end up with a much worse solution? Not really sure you'll have a compelling argument for that however.
You could argue that civil servants and politicians in both the UK and EU are equally useless at coming up with workable remedies and I'd agree with that. The issue with them being UK based is we at least have the illusion we can do something about it (vote them out) even if we never do anything other than change from a blue coloured tie/dress to a red one.
