For the background read: http://www.bbc.co.uk...litics-21148282
On a German news service I read that two thirds of the over 60 year old British want that the UK leaves the EU and that two thirds of the British that are aged between 18 and 34 want to stay in the EU.
Personally, I think, although a bit isolated, Great Britain is a strong part of the EU that holds a relative big burden. In 2009 the country 0,24 percent of it's GDP into the EU which is one of the highest percentages in comparison to other EU countries. See, Net receipts from the EU budget, based on 2009 budget data: http://en.wikipedia...._European_Union
However, In my opinion the whole bureaucratic and injust system of the EU is damned to fail, I welcome this referendum, because I hope maybe we get the same chance if the referedum has success in the UK, and everything breaks together like a card house.
So, what do you people (especially British) on this forum think about the referendum? How would you vote if it happens?
