Universal credit has been a success, work force participation rate at record highs, compared to USA'S record lows thanks to Obamas Food stamp nation.
When you get a job, I am sure others might also consider Universal Credit a success.
I was a begrudging remainder and believed the EU needed reform, but that the only thing worse than the EU would be leaving. However, if there were a second referendum I would vote to leave.
Since we voted for Brexit, the EU has shown itself at its worse and is pushing ahead with more Europe, in spite of Le Penn reaching the second round of the French elections, Germany having the far right in Parliament and Austria looking to have them in government. The unelected Eurocrats have an absolute contempt for democracy and it will be the death of the EU. They did not listen to Cameron when he said the EU needs reform, they have not listened because of Brexit and they are not listening to their own people.
The EU has forgotten what a sovereign nation is and the fact they want the UK to pay into the club without offering any hint at a trade deal, want the European Court of Justice to have jurisdiction over the UK, are trying to carve up the City of London, are stating they want Northern Ireland to remain with the customs union otherwise there will be a border with Ireland, while also telling us that UK cannot use our defence and security as a negotiating tool, is disgraceful.
There are many advantages to being in the EU, however, the lack of democratic legitimacy is too great and the amount of leverage the EU has in these negotiations shows it has grown too far beyond its original purpose as a trade organisation and is now on the brink of statehood itself.
