You have not answered my question which was why do you think we will be economically better in the EU when their economy is hardly anything to get excited about?
And if the EU won't ever take us back then what is there to argue about? I hope you are right on that point by the way
Because there is not and has never been one EU economy, but different countries with different economies, some doing great like Germany, Netherlands and others doing badly like Greece and Italy. What is important to be in the EU is that it is the biggest market block, and no trade barriers and smooth transit is great for commerce. Every country I know would like to have barrier free access to that market, including UK, by the way.
