    The European Union is being held up by a few like England and Germany. A lot of the large European Union members are parasites and the ones who can take care of themselves should leave. Its what only 13 or 14 years old it can’t be that hard.

    Much like the “southern” United States where entitlements such as, but not limited to, Social Security disability flourishes despite the overwhelming support of the GOP. More money flows from DC to these states (per capita) than any other state. One of these days very soon they’ll learn you cannot have it both ways.

    Not sure where you are going, California has more entitlements then anyone.

    The point of the comic is that leaving the EU doesn’t put Britain in safe waters. It’s foolish talk from Cameron.

    BTW England is not in the Eurozone, so they aren’t propping up anyone. It’s mostly Germany keeping the markets afloat.

    When did social security become an entitlement? I was under the impression it was an insurance policy, all the years I paid into it.

    He didn’t say Social Security – He said Social Security DISABILITY. Big difference.

    Just a correction (it’s one I often bring up):
    Even if Scotland votes for independence from the U.K. in 2014, the U.K. will still be a U.K. England is part of the part of the U.K, it is not the U.K.

    I’m in agreement with Uncle Joe. It’s foolish pandering to the eurosceptic wing of the Conservatives. The new party, UKIP, has eurosceptism and leaving the EU as its mainstay and it’s gaining more ground. The Tories, within a coalition with Liberal Democrats, are shaky and losing voters to UKIP.
    A referendum on whether to stay on with a revised treaty, or to leave, was promised for after the elections in ‘15. The Tories would have to win a clear majority and I doubt it’s going to happen. Despite that, there is an ever growing number of British voters who want to leave the EU. They do not know what they are wishing for.
    Ten years ago I would have acknowledged the eurosceptics but would not have thought there was a chance of the UK leaving the EU (I think I even said as much within a few weeks of my start on this forum a few years back).
    I now think a Brixit is possible, not quite yet probable. I’m toying with the idea of obtaining British citizenship just in case.

    There’s so much wrong in your bewildering grammarless paragraph that I think I shall leave you in your ignorant stupor.

    @Uncle Joe

    Fair enough but that being said what does England have to vote about leaving?

    Social Security DISABILITY is also only for people who paid into the system. You may be thinking of Supplemental Social Security Income.

    There are some people collecting that are really able to work, but unless someone can dig up evidence to the contrary, I doubt it’s a huge portion.

    @jack75287

    My bet is that if it comes up for a popular vote, the majority of Britons will vote to stay in the EU. Cameron has promised a vote by 2017. This all looks more like political posturing than a real move toward leaving.

    @jack75287

    Is that based on raw numbers, or a percentage?

    @jack75287

    Or just your opinion?

    Sort of like Texas, or were they serious?
