Given the clear economic advantages to staying in the EU, why are so many Brits determined to quit? Much of the current disenchantment with the EU is linked to immigration: after Poland was admitted, tens of thousands of Poles poured into the UK; now, over half a million have migrated, making Polish the second most used language in Britain after English. In a few weeks, the early freeze on migrants from Bulgaria and Rumania is set to end, raising the prospect of a further flood of East European immigrants.

Although citizens of member states can travel and work anywhere in the EU, Britain is the destination of choice with its English-language state education, its free medical care and its generous welfare system.

As the Communists learned, people tend to be more nationalistic than collectivists.

So the the focus is always more on the downside of the EU than the upside.

Because the EU includes France. Without France and President de Gaulle, the UK could have been part of the EU back in 1957.

As it is, The UK didn't join the EU (or the EEC, as it was then called) until 1973 and has always felt like an outsider, compared to the original mainland European member nations.

Don't interrupt me when I'm talking to myself
