    A draft has been written for later approval
    for a referendum to take place in Britain in
    a couple of years time.

    This referendum is to ask the people of Britain
    do they want to leave the EU or remain in the EU.

    What are your thoughts?

    Right wing parties are on the rise in Britain.
    The biggest of them, UKIP, the united kingdom
    independence party is currently enjoying a huge
    surge in the polls. UKIP wants Britain to have more
    control over its own affairs and has already made its
    feelings plain about EU interference in British economics
    and the fact that they want increased border controls
    leading to less immigration.

    David Cameron has already pandered to some of
    UKIP's ideas in order to prevent the loss of more votes.

    What say you?

    Is Britain right to be worried about Europe having too
    much control in British domestic affairs?

    Very soon Scotland will have a referendum to see if Scotland
    should leave the UK.

    How will it all go?

    When we express that opinion in this country, we are always told that we have to take our share of immigrants. We too feel that we don't have much to offer and that we are responsible for those already here.

    What do you mean by too much control?
