Cutting ties 9 2, 9:04pm

Yes we're made a hell of a lot of bad decisions but one was definitely to join the EEC in the 1st place given the economic damage that did. Which is a fact no matter how much the trolls wish to deny it. It cut us off from many of our traditional markets due to the deeply protectionists nature of the organisation. Even apart from the high subsidies paid as well, partially reduce by the rebate in the 80's there was also the large hidden one of consuming so much of the expensive EEC/EU food and hence allow the CAP to continue being so wasteful for so long.

So there are problems on both sides and unlikely too many on this board I'm willing to admit that rather than an idiotic attempt to claim its a simplistic binary situation.
