UK and the EU: Better off out or in?The world has changed: We are in panic over immigration, largely due to the written press. Fear is fuelling our insular attitude; we’re clinging to our long gone past glories. We are a small but rich country however, that won’t last. Alone we will be a bit player, slowly sliding down the economic ladder. If we tread the European path, we will maintain our banking and other successful industries and continue to attract inward investment. But, we must rekindle our once excellent work ethos; an eastern European has the same feelings as us, but they’re hungrier than us – this is something we must address. For the future of our next generation and beyond it is crucial that we remain connected to our near neighbours; the UK should become a major player in Europe and it is the way forward for our ultimate success and quality of life. Size does matter!
