You're someone who still blindly supports the Conservatives in their greatest meltdown in decades, when literally leading Tories are leaving the party, so what on earth makes you think you could understand something like leaving a Customs Union?  I doubt you can spell that, and you certainly can't punctuate it.  Have your vote, feel important by all means, but leave the actual politics to them big boys what stayd in skool OK?

“...what the EU does for the UK that the UK can't do itself?” I’ll have a go at answering that.

There are many - peace, higher workers rights, better environment and heath protections, better trade deals around the world, better cooperation in security, science, education, the arts … the list goes on and on - but the most important in my mind is freedom of movement.

Being in the EU gives every UK citizen the right to live, work or visit 27 other countries as if they were part of the UK. That is an amazing individual freedom. Nowhere else outside the EU do ordinary people have so much freedom. That is such an amazing individual freedom afforded to all EU citizens, why anyone would want to give it up beats me.

IMO freedom of movement is the worst consequence of the EU . The UK 🇬🇧 is the walking stick of many EU Members with little in return. The guilt of Germany for example shall be their undoing, and I in no way mean shame for past atrocities should not be there and rightly so but they are not responsible for their forefathers actions. Open boarders to all and sundry has created massive negative social issues for many City dwellers that are simply not reported on MSM . Take a trip to Hamburg , Berlin , Düsseldorf and from mid evening go for a walk and see it for yourself.

Just to check, you do realise that the significant majority of immigration into EU states (including the UK) is from non-EU countries?  When I've worked in German cities, you see plenty of non-EU immigrants.  But EU regulations have no say on how many non-EU immigrants we accept, so Brexit will have little effect as far as that is concerned. Sorry.

OK so that's just not true at all.

There's a little thing called the Schengen Agreement which guarantees free movement and travel without passports.  UK is not part of that, so unlike most of the EU, once you get to our 'open boarders' you still have to prove who you are and that you have a right to be in the EU.  If you can't do that, you can't get into the UK.  

More importantly most immigrants from non-EU countries come from India, Pakistan, Ireland, Bangladesh, South Africa and China (in descending order).  These aren't people that come in via land borders to the EU. 

The vast majority of non-EU immigrants are from India so will not be affected by Brexit whatsoever.  Sorry.

Just not true.  It makes me wonder how many of your voting decisions have been founded on something that is factually incorrect.

If the German authorities grant you access to the EU, then you are a legal immigrant, but that will also be checked when you land in the UK.  That is because we are not part of the Schengen agreement.  You can however pass through some borders within Europe without showing any ID.

Our borders have always been our own, and the quantities of people moving across them is nearly entirely dictated by the ruling government which will remain post-Brexit.

"The UK is the walking stick of many EU Members with little in return." If by 'many' you mean most, I'm not sure that's true. According to the Independent in a 2018 article, EU migrant workers contribute £2,300 more per year to UK than average British citizen. LINK

if you need some building work done, get a Polish, or Bulgarian, or Romanian worker. They are polite, work really hard, know their shit and charge less - at least that's my experience.

That is also the experience of cafe owners. 9 out of 10 baristas are EU workers. And from hearing many cafe owners on talk radio, every single one said they cannot find good British workers - recalling seemingly common incidents of British workers calling in sick because "they drank too much last night", or getting mum to call up on behalf of her sick son.

"Open boarders to all and sundry has created massive negative social issues for many City dwellers..." I don't know about Berlin or Dusseldorf, but London, a massive melting pot for different nationalities and cultures, voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU. Whereas the strongest leave areas were areas with least immigration. Make of that what you will.

Polish ,Bulgarian and Romanian workers , for example , are quite willing to work for Minimum wage as the State Contribution, as regards Working / Child / Housing / Health / Education benefits and so on far outstrip what they would earn ( overall value ) in there native Country thus giving them a higher standard of living . 

Many Cafe / busnisses that deal with cash tend to pay their workers cash , not through the books........

1 - Saving the employer in NI and holiday contributions

 2 - Costing the State more in Benefits.

So its a lose lose situation on the side of the State and therefore on the Tax Paying public within the UK . 

We then have "through the books" employees asking for wage increases that employers can ill afford as they try to compete with the aforementioned and so the cycle continues. This is just one example of the negatives of open boarders and is exactly the reason the EU has hard controls on non EU imports and Workers all be it on a much larger scale.

When you employed Foreign construction workers did you check their Insurance , RaMs , Qualifications , Asbestos awareness training regarding exposing themselves and others during their working practices ? For the latter if you did not then you are liable for any claims relating to them becoming comtaminated with such , and if they have contaminated you then best of luck in 30 or so years. Also again did you pay cash or was it into a registered company bank account via tracable invoice ? Not suggesting that you didn't for one moment but i'm sure you get the picture . 

I fully take your opinion but there is also an alternative that is quite real.

"Polish ,Bulgarian and Romanian workers , for example , are quite willing to work for Minimum wage ... they would earn ( overall value ) in there native Country thus giving them a higher standard of living."  Are you suggesting that work should be biased towards people with a higher standard of living? The EU doesn't control how much British companies pay their workers. If a company pays minimum wage when the wage should be higher, that's a UK  issue. Maybe that industry should be unionised so workers get a better deal?

As with your other points, they are also UK issues. For example, cafes paying cash in hand - it is illegal for businesses to pay cash in hand. The problem/solution is enforcing the law. British companies paying cash in hand is not the fault of the EU. It is the responsibility of the UK government.

"When you employed Foreign construction workers did you check their Insurance..." No, I just got some decorators in. If they were British, I wouldn't have asked to see all their certificates. Would you? If Polish workers are working illegally because they don't have the required training by law, that is a UK government issue, not the EU. If we can't enforce our own laws, then that's our problem.

We should blame the EU less and take more responsibility for our own incompetence. The EU is today's scapegoat for all our ills.

The issue is not the EU nor its workers , the issue is open boarders . I am a protectionist of my Country and CountryMen , not the EU. Just as Brussels are a protectionist of the EU State toward the World Economy.

And yes , it is against employment Law to pay an employee Cash in Hand that is not through the books.

Put down the Daily Mail and read something with some substance.  I know you read it.  I guarantee it.  

I will ask again, bearing in mind the use of punctuation is too advanced for you, what makes you think you would understand the economic benefits of a Customs Union?  It would be like trying to teach my dog Latin.

Quite alright.  And I would take the views of my dog on the EU over anyone who considers the Daily Mail to be an authoritative source of news.  

"Why don’t you vote in EU elections?"  You shouldn't make so many assumptions.  

It's no attempt at appearing important, and I'm no expert - I elect people who I think will understand the situation better than I do.  

I happen to believe that if someone has lived in the UK through the saturation of pre-referendum campaigning and post-referendum news and still doesn't understand the pros and cons of both sides, and if his level of debate is limited to telling people they are communists or that they read the Morning Star (and seriously, who does?), and if he literally cannot punctuate a simple sentence or follow the simplest line of argument, then why on earth would anyone try to explain the economic benefits of a Customs Union or the worth of EU-based FDI to them?  The boy is not for turning.

^ long response looks like they have something to say. LOL.

LOL. Selective responses amuse me. What you chose to ignore says more than what you said. And relying on grammatical corrections this early in your response shows how triggered you are. LOL and ROTFL.

I’d copy/paste a link regarding the correlation between leave voters and active EU voters (which inversely correlates between remain voters and non active EU voters) but you already understand the situation being an example of it yourself.

ROTFL. I bet you also thought Trump was a Russian asset, yet you’ll never give up blatant propaganda when it preys on your daddt issue. LOL and ROTFL.

Ooh it's the psychoputz!  How was the intervention, lad?  I guess the effects weren't as long-term as you'd hoped?

Despite the conversation not originally involving you, I see I've somehow already angered you so you're using your teen-speak goading to pretend you're enjoying the situation, and resorting technique 1 of 1, using hypocritical psychology ("projection") such as 'daddy issues'.

Oh, so you would theoretically post a poll about the population that has allowed you to make a false assumption about a certain individual?  Cool, that works for me.

Now you're angry and you will want to reply with psychobabble abuse.  Any further response from you will signal that you wish to go down this same path, and that's your call.  We know what's behind that door, don't we?

But before we do, I ask you to calmly recall what happened last time, and the time before that, and the state of mind that you left this site with.  These are rhetorical questions:  What would your keyworker say?  Do you personally think it's wise to use social media so much bearing in mind your history?  

It was obviously that you were genuinely unwell, and I don't think you're yet in control in the way you'd like to be.  Your shout.

But before we do, I ask you to calmly recall what happened last time, and the time before that, and the state of mind that you left this site with.  These are rhetorical questions:  What would your keyworker say?  Do you personally think it's wise to use social media so much bearing in mind your history?  

It was obviously that you were genuinely unwell, and I don't think you're yet in control in the way you'd like to be.  Your shout.

Don't worry yourself, poppet.  There are absolutely no benefits of remaining in the EU.  You were right all along.  Those immigrants are going to keep out, we're going to take back our sovereignty, take back control, and we'll shortly be getting £350 million into our NHS every week.  The Conservative Party are definitely capable of delivering exactly what you were told to vote for.  I can't wait!  It's already going so well that I'm embarrassed I didn't vote to Leave.  Good job you.

And as for the Customs Union we pay a very very high price for membership .

I know you are flicking through the Morning Star but you won't find your answer in there.

MEP Richard Ashworth commands a huge audience.  Out of 751 EU parliament seats around 45 actually showed up to fill their seats.

Plus all the people seeing it on Youtube, along with the wider reporting he's likely to get - so, yes, I agree he commands a huge audience.
