Quite sure it's not a a new revelation as Tony agreed the deal in 2005 but I certainly missed it. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/politics/8219344.stm Looking in pure financial terms the deal doesn't seem to be that good. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budget_of_the_European_Union The European Human Rights Act doesn't seem to have done the UK many favours either. So can anyone convince me of good reasons or the reason to remain in the EU? Apologies if it's been done before - linky?
