Here's some bedtime reading for Ken, if he ever goes to bed:-

UNITE the 45


I thought I would jot down a few differences between the EU and the UK. First, the so-called imposed EU laws..

Clean beaches and rivers
Funding for industrial decline areas
Cleaner air
Lead-free petrol
Restriction on landfill dumping
A recycling culture
Cheaper mobile phone charges
Cheaper air travel
Consumer protection and food labelling
A ban on growth hormones and harmful food additives
Better product safety
Single market competition bringing quality improvements
A break up of monopolies
Europe wide patent and copyright protection
No paperwork or customs for exports through the single market.
Removal of commission on currency
Freedom to travel, live and work across Europe
Funded opportunities for young people to study or work placements abroad
Access to European health services
Labour protection and enhanced social welfare
Equal pay legislation
Holiday entitlement
The right not to work more than 48 hours a week without overtime
Strongest wildlife protection in the world
Improved animal welfare in food production
EU funded research
Cross-border policing to combat human trafficking, arms and drug smuggling etc

To name a few and the latest to clamp down on Tax evasion.

We don't want any of the above, we want to give full control to a Westminster Parliament, described as the most corrupt on the planet which has delivered the following.

The UK has the 2nd highest childcare costs in the world.
The UK has the highest level of obesity in Western Europe.
The UK has the second-largest debt (per capita) in the world.
The UK is the most expensive place in the world to run a car.
The UK has the most expensive energy costs in Europe.
The UK has been named the most corrupt country in the world.
The UK is home to the largest concentration of nuclear weapons in Europe.
Scotland, as a part of the UK, has the largest structural deficit in Europe.
Scotland, as a part of the UK, has the greatest concentration of land ownership in the world.
Scotland, as a part of the UK, has the largest PFI bill (per capita) in the world.
Job satisfaction levels in the UK as the fourth poorest in the developed world.
The UK is home to the highest aviation tax in the world.
The UK has the longest detention period in the world where an individual can be held without charge for 28 days – 16 days longer than Australia, second on the list.
The UK government is under investigation by the United Nations for breaches of Human Rights.
The UK is under investigation for the selling of arms to Saudi Arabia.
The UK is the sixth most unequal country in the world.
Inequality in the UK has grown faster than any other country since 1970.
The UK has earned the title of “worst place to live in Europe” following a study which assessed “quality of life” – and came second-last in the previous year.
The UK has the highest fuel taxes in Europe.
In the last six years, the UK has sold weapons to 24 of the 27 states included on its own list of “countries of humanitarian concern”.
Wages in the UK have fallen by 10.4% since 2007 – a performance matched only by poverty-stricken Greece.
The UK is the fourth most undemocratic country in the developed world.
The UK has the second-largest unelected chamber in the world.
The UK has the second-lowest number of female judges in Europe (right behind Azerbaijan).
Britons have 5.5 fewer work holidays a year than the European average.
The UK has the second-longest working hours in Europe.
The UK provides the second-lowest state pension in the OECD (with only Mexico offering its citizens less).
The UK has the third highest level of inequality in the developed world.
The number of zero-hours contracts in the UK has skyrocketed by 21% compared to last year.
House building in the UK is the lowest since 1923.
The UK’s military capacity has been reduced to its lowest level since the Napoleonic Wars.
The UK government have presided over more deaths of disabled citizens than the Nazis.
UK homes have the smallest living space in Europe.
The UK is the third “most warmongering” country in the world.
The UK, with more CCTV cameras (per head of population) than anywhere else, is the most watched country in the world.
In the UK, more than half of new businesses collapse with the UK tax system, a lack of bank lending and the cost of running a business all cited as reasons for failure.
The UK has one of the most complicated tax systems in the world with 10,042 pages of legislation (as of 2010) and an additional 500 pages of new tax law are created each year – this also makes administration far less cost-effective with the Institute of Economic Affairs concluding that the annual operating costs of the British tax system were more than £11bn in 2012.
House prices in Britain are around 30pc too high, according to a study published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation & Development.
The UK has the most expensive rents in Europe (£350 P/M more than the EU average).
Female mortality rates in the UK are the second poorest in Western Europe.
The UK has the second largest involvement in the tax haven of Panama.
Property tax in the UK is the most complex in the world.

Considering how we ended up here and why we even had an EU referendum. Cameron (Tory) who's only goal in life is to retain power offered the referendum to get UKIP voters back and it worked. So basically Scotland is being dragged from the EU by a political party (UKIP) who managed 1.4% of the vote in Scotland along with the Tories who we haven't voted for since the 1950s

Something just doesn't seem right to me...
