That's about lobbyists, not the EU.
That's about the behaviour of national leaders and calls on them to be more transparent, again, not the EU.
That's the EU court system confirming right of access, (one may argue that some access was restricted and sure, but ultimately, the system plays out to grant access - the same thing happens on a daily basis in this country with national government, local government and consumer businesses except here the ruling is usually in favour of the establishment/the money, unlike the EU.
The last link was an opinion piece not worth commenting on.
@evr301265 Have you really thought your post through? (And I’m not arguing for remaining s leaving)
1) The EU is actually pretty transparent but you have to actually go and look for the information. It’s as least as transparent, if n9t more so than our own parliament.
2) The EU is accountable. The EU Parliament is made up of representatives of each member state (750) of which we had nearly a 10% say in any vote (73 MEPs). All those MEPs were elected by the electorate of their respective member states. Of course if we wanted those MEPs to truly represent us then a) more people should’ve turned out for elections and b) the likes of Farage and many others should have been pressured into actually turning up or taking part.
3) Which really comes from point 2. If you want disregard for people it was there to represent then I refer you back to how little our MEPs, elected by us have done.
In effect you are saying tha our own government is more transparent and represents its people better. Yet, when Parliament actually tries to hold the government to account, by Democratic means, people cry foul. If you think this government is transparent then you’ve not been following the news very well. The EU actually provided, imo, a useful check and back stop for our own politicians who, several times since the vote have already tried to over extend their powers, and have sought and still seek to divide and conquer.
We are leaving and we need to leave without a deal imo. If only so that we can straighten out our own politics without the more of Brexit/no Brexit hanging over us. I think we all need to stop and really look at where problems originate from for that to happen. Once we Leave it will very quickly become clear that, while it may not be the answer, the EU is not the cause of many of our problems.
only have one question for everyone
the biggest money spinner for Great Britain is the export of financial services mainly to the EU and before brexit we still have the European passport for financial services which allows us to trade in to the eu without any tariffs
yes i know there is the WTO rules which trump ignores and puts up trade tariffs despite the rules being in place.
knowing all the information above is it still worth the risk?
Yes it is. Bring on hard Brexit! I want a no deal brexit on WTO rules. The EU have shown themselves to be inflexible bullies. May is merely their puppet. She never really wanted a Brexit and should not be leaving the government.
Does anyone know whether Jeremy Corbyn voted to leave or stay? He comes across as a eurosceptic but many in his party seem to be pushing him towards a pointless second referendum!
