There are many reasons why the UK should disengage itself from the EU and plot its own destiny, but where it is in the direct interest of the mighty corporation to stay in according to the rich and powerful 10% of the world's population (and basically the 0.47% of the population who according to Credit Suisse's 'Global Wealth Report' control 41% of the world's wealth - and where also the top 10% rich control 86% of the world's wealth according to the same report). But it also has to be said that the 'cash-cow' that provides the rich with all their riches (the 90% of the world's people who work for these oligarchs and corporations), get nothing of any major significance out of the EU in terms of 'real' increases in their standards of living. Indeed the living standards of the vast majority in the EU (500 million+ EU citizens), are declining year-on-year and have been doing so in real terms for the last decade. Unfortunately this decline for most of the EU citizens will continue unabated as EU leaders, politicians and bureaucrats are controlled by the mighty corporations (last year according to Forbes the 'Global 2000' controlled 51% of all total world trade and why the corporation have politicians (including political leaders) in their back pockets, orchestrating an economic strategy for the rich and not the people.

1. The Wrong Quality and Backgrounds of Politicians in the EU Compared to China is the Vital Difference in Winning the Economic War of the 21st centuryChina's leaders are predominantly engineers or scientists by training and where EU politicians are predominantly not either engineers or scientists by training but lawyers. China's meteoric rise has been principally orchestrated by technical people and the main reason it has to be said why China has developed rapidly. In contrast EU politicians because of their non-technical mindset (in technology terms) have never understood the power of innovation, invention and technology to transform economies into dynamic economies. China has always been different here and where their past leadership over the last 30-years (the years of the economic rise of China) have also been chiefly trained as engineers and scientists. In this respect Dr. Jian Song, the former vice-premier of China for 13-years and an Honorary Member of the Foundation, was the man who initially developed the 'economic blueprint' for China and which they have adhered to ever since he did so. Overall, I don't think that he did a bad job either, looking at the unparallel economic rise of China over the last quarter of a century and where he was the former president of their national academy of engineering. Indeed, lawyer's minds just look at the laws of the land but have not the understanding of things that create wealth (innovation, science and technology). These two mindsets are therefore completely different and where the economic decline in the EU and also the USA can be linked to this distinct political deficiency. For one has the mind and thinking to develop a nation through the constant exploitation of technological excellence and the other has not a clue what innovation and invention can do for the benefit of a nation. The reason again, is that EU politicians have in the main 'legal' brains and China's politicians have 'scientific and engineering' brains.
2. The 'EU-USA Trade Pact' versus the 'China-Russia Trade Pact'
The EU-USA trade agreement is an agreement for western corporations and not for the people. No way is it a 'free-trade' agreement and where the people of the EU and the USA will be worse off financially with this trade agreement in place. In this respect EU politicians have negotiated into the agreement that the mighty corporations will receive a minimum profit on their commodities, products and services and if this minimum profit is not met, they can sue sovereign governments for the profit. This unfortunately is written into the agreement so that it cannot be challenges and the agreement surmounts the sovereign laws of all EU 28 members. Indeed the icing on the cake for the corporations is that if there are any disputes, they will be held behind closed doors in 'secret' court/tribunal hearings and heard not by the nation's judiciary, but by a special corporate/EU tribunal constituted by predominantly corporation interests, not the people's interests. In this respect the people will not be allowed into these secretive courts and will not have a say in the proceedings at all. Indeed, the taxpayer will not even be told of the decisions and the billions that have been paid out - presently around the world with far smaller equivalent trade treaties, corporations are suing governments for over $30,000 million in compensation claims and where the people hear very little, if at all, about this huge corporate claims. Consequently, corporations will to a certain extent be able to sign their own cheques. Hard to believe, read the small print !
But added to this, corporations will be able to override all manner of environmental concerns if these hit their bottom-line, such as stopping Fracking. From TTIP onwards, they will be able to get there own way and the people and their governments, will not be able to do anything about it. Don't believe me again, do your own research and where as one example of many, a US corporation is suing the Canadian government and their people (their taxpayers) presently for $10 billion for not allowing them to undertake Fracking.

3. Cost of EU Membership and Benefits or No Benefits
The EU costs the UK today £55 million a day. This figure will continually rise over the next 20-years as EU Policies fail the people of Europe as they have for the last 10-years (including taking in the financial meltdown into account).
MEPs (Costs of the 751 Members of the European Parliament)
This is only the cost of the Politicians and we have to add an enormous amount for paying the vast army of bureaucrats as well. Indeed some have even estimated that the total cost of the EU project costs EU taxpayers (UK included of course) as high as 1,000 Billion Euro a year for the whole of the EU conglomeration (around 50% of the annual GDP of the UK)!
4. Being in the EU has not changed our 'Economic' trading percentages with EU countries since we joined the European Project in 1973 - Therefore there is no economic advantage to British trade whatsoever for the UK being in the EU.
Who are the idiots therefore is the question, the people who pay for all this or the politicians. It clearly looks to me that it is the people unfortunately.
5. The EU's Annual Translation Costs are 'Officially' Over £1000 Million and Rising Continuously
Just one element that is different to the United States of America and the United States of Europe is the latter's astronomical £1000 Million+ and growing translation costs. The reason of course is that the USA has one predominant language, American English, but where all EU 28 member states have different languages, equivalent different national alphabets and ways of saying and expressing things. Communication throughout the EU is overridingly fragmented and therefore a highly negative factor for integration and in providing economic dynamism. Therefore the EU 28's disparate individual national standings are not conducive to creating a dynamic economic block due to the communication difficulties. Indeed I have always stated that communication, collaboration and cooperation are the hallmarks of a dynamic economy in the 21st century and if one area is lacking the totally innovation chain is broken and cannot be fixed no matter what we try to do. Therefore the EU will never excel like the USA has done, because of this strategically fundamental inferior weakness within the EU's internal market structure.

Stop Press - Cameron Forced to put in the Queen's Speech or suffer defeat in parliament if he did not exclude the NHS from the TTIP trade negotiationsCameron was forced to include a clause yesterday (19.05.16) so that the NHS was excluded in the TTIP negotiations. This should tell everyone that he is working for the corporations, as the TTIP is a corporate treaty in reality and why should he have had to be forced to do this if the TTIP is so good for the people?
But he is having to do this under duress. Unfortunately for the NHS this will not stop the EU from privatising the NHS over a relatively short period of time when we have signed to stay in the EU and where because the TTIP makes it clear that 'MONOPOLIES' cannot exist, the EU will demand that the NHS is privatised.
And Britain will not be able to do a single thing against this, as we would then be trapped inside an all-powerful EU and under their total control. Don't believe me, return here in a mere 10 years time to see that all the above has unfortunately come true if we stay in the EU. For only by voting OUT can the NHS be saved and that is ultimately the truth.
I just wish people would wake up to the reality of the EU and where we shall definitely not be able to save the NHS and anything else for that matter that we cherish so much, once we sign to stay in the EU. For this time it will be forever.
