In. Out. In. Out.

Shake It All About

E

very 5 years, there is a general elec-

tion to distract us from and potential-

ly disrupt our day to day activities.

Now we have the referendum to consider.

Are you an ‘INNER’ or an ‘OUTER’? Listening to the pros and cons

of Europe, is a little like doing the old party dance, the Hokey Cokey,

as ‘experts’ put their case.

For me, I ammore than a litt4le surprised at how little the European

bureaucrats - whoops, sorry, must not call them that the President

of Europe gets upset . . the European Civil Servants are not very vo-

ciferous in supporting the In campaigners. I was anticipating a flood

of Europeans telling us how good it is to be one. However, so far,

nothing but there is still time. Should we put out the welcome flag

or announce over the tannoy ‘prepare to engage the invaders’.

Every grouping seems to be divided. Industry cannot guide us in

making what we are told is a once in a lifetime decision. Some house-

hold names are saying exit whilst others are saying stay in.

Can we believe the G20 Financiers who say that if the UK votes

to come out the world financial markets could go in to melt down?

Funny that they can see a meltdown coming but a few years ago,

they were so blinded by their riches that they did not see the world

economies going into free-fall.

It should be a simple question - to stay or to exit? The ‘INS’ tell

us of the significant, albeit, unknown risks of exiting but fail to explain

what are the real benefits of staying in.

The ‘OUTS’ are more specific in explaining why we will be better

out of Europe.

At this time, I am supporting the OUT campaign for one simple

business reason. I want a level playing field.

Because of a mix up when my accountants filed my annual returns

last year I was 2 days late. This resulted in a £100 fine.

By contrast, the Auditors have not been able to reconcile the

books at the European Union for some 20 years with millions of Euros

missing that cannot be explained! But they continue as usual. Why,

when any company would have been forced to close down years ago?

Perhaps they have they been taking financial advice from some

FIFA executives.
