Poll: Should the UK Leave The EU

David Cameron is trying his best to get what he considers a good deal for Britain while in Europe.
He has made it clear that benefits for migrants should be adjusted especially on child benefit that many EU workers here can claim for their children back home.
He has also told him that we do not want toe Euro and we must keep the pound as well as many other things.

Once he gets these things in place he will give every eligible voter in the UK a chance to vote in a referendum.
Cameron has said he doesn't want to leave so will be campaigning to stay - that's why he wants concessions now.
You will be able to vote for Britain to become independent from the EU and totally govern itself unlike what happens now :o

Here is your chance to vote on leaving the European Union.

I will leave the poll open until June for the time being - that's when we may get the chance to vote.

I voted yes to leave the EU.
I see no benefits to stay in there now.
We have the opportunity to become independent.
Think about it for one moment - independent!
That's suggests, and rightly so, that the UK is not independent..

Blimey, I never looked at it like that before :shock:
I was always going to vote out anyway.
I don't like outsiders making laws for us!

Its on the news right now.
Apparently David Cameron is over the moon with what he has secured in Europe.
I must admit that he talked the talk on a few things but there is more to the European Union that meets the eye and I am not being persuaded on what I heard.

I voted and will vote out on June 23rd.
This opportunity is too good to miss.

I wasn't too bothered before but having an opportunity of a lifetime in front of me I am going to vote.
I can't vote to stay in the EU.
That's because in the future I want a clear conscience.
I can't tie this country into many others in case its bad for the future generations.
While we are independent we will be able to trade with whoever we want - including Europe!
I will leave big decisions to the future generations.
I am voting out!

I will be voting to get out of Europe.
Britain should not have its laws making over there.
We are the fifth biggest economy on earth and we will be fine.
Even if Europe stopped buying from us we have the rest of the world.
Our traditional trading partners will ensure we buy the cheapest possible goods.
I reckon the prices of most things will go down because of this.

I am not just going with the flow here, I genuinely believe that the UK would be far better off out of Europe.
For starters, since when has Britain been dictated to at any time!

I see Boris Johnson has come out and says he wants the UK to leave the EU as well :clapping:

I am not too sure at this time.
I voted "don't know" in this poll because I felt as if I needed to use my vote :banghead:
Whatever the outcome I hope we all don't regret it :dummy:
