Recently UK Prime Minster David Cameron announced that an EU Referendum will take place by 2017 if he wins the next election.

The EU was started in the 50s shortly after WWII, & for the most part has stop Europe from destruction against each other. But then it was only a handful of countries, ever since the end if the Cold War & break up of the Soviet Union & it's former seatlite states the members of the Union have gone past like 30 - 40 members, & has ever since getting less support & good publicity, ever since the Eastern countries have joined like Poland, Romania, Bulgaria etc joined & duo to the EU policy 100,000s of them have moved freely into the big nations most notably the UK, where major cities such as London, Birmingham & Glasgow have seen huge rises in population, this has caused major debate within the nation about this crisis, UKIP, have had a huge popularity grow duo to this they have this following policy they'd like introduced which:

- Call for an immediate five-year freeze on immigration for permanent settlement and will insure that any future immigration does not exceed 50,000 people per year.
Ensure that after the five-year freeze, any future immigration for permanent settlement will be on a strictly controlled, points-based system similar to that in Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

- Regain control of the UK's borders. Entry for work will be on a time-limited work permit only while entry for non-work related purposes (e.g., holiday or study) will be on a temporary visa. Overstaying a visa will be treated as a criminal offence.

- Triple the number of UK Borders Agency staff engaged in controlling immigration to 30,000.
Return people found to be living illegally in the UK to their country of origin. No amnesty for illegal immigrants as it encourages illegal immigration.

- Require those living in the UK under ‘Permanent Leave to Remain’ to abide by a legally binding ‘Undertaking of Residence’ ensuring they respect our laws or face deportation. Such residents will not be eligible for benefits. People applying for British citizenship will have to have completed a period of not less than five years as a resident on ‘Permanent Leave to Remain’. New citizens should pass a citizenship test and sign a ‘Declaration of British Citizenship’ promising to uphold Britain’s democratic and tolerant way of life.
Enforce the existing terms of the 1951 UN Convention on Refugees until Britain replaces it with an Asylum Act. To avoid disappearances, asylum seekers will be held in secure and humane centres until applications are processed, with a limited right to appeal. Those seeking asylum must do so in the first ‘designated safe country’ they enter. Existing asylum seekers who have had their application refused will be required to leave the country, along with any dependants.

- Require that certain visas, such as student visas, will necessitate face-to-face interviews, and UKIP will crack down on bogus educational establishments
Repeal the 1998 Human Rights Act and withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. In future the British courts will not be allowed to appeal to any international treaty or convention that overrides or sets aside the provisions of any statute passed by the UK Parliament.

- Reintroduce the ‘Primary Purpose Rule’ (abolished by the Labour Government), whereby those marrying or seeking to marry a British citizen will have to convince the admitting officer that marriage, not residence, is their primary purpose in seeking to enter the UK.
End the active promotion of the doctrine of multiculturalism by local and national government and all publicly funded bodies.

These are many if the things that the EU blocks duo to their policy's but what do you believe?

No - The EU is still & always will be great use/help to all its members from UK & France to Romania & Poland, leaving will be a huge mistake/regret for any member who leaves & damage out ecomanys badly

Yes - The EU has cause nothing but trouble for the past years & now is the time to leave, staying will only cause more chaos & hurt our ecomanys

This goes for all EU countries to decide not just for the Brits
