Rollo_ 5pts Rik: you have not studied the Common Market, as you call it. The Government ONS website gives the facts. There is an enormous deficit in our EU UK trade in goods. £126 Billion in 2014; more than that subsequently. There has never been a surplus. There is a much smaller surplus in services, but it does not make up for the losses on imports from the EU. And we have to borrow every penny we overspend from world markets, which make it worse.. So the result of staying in in not neutral: it is a death slide downwards. We have a surplus with the rest of the world, which is growing while the EU declines. The EU share of world trade has been in constant decline for 20 years. The only way is LEAVE.
