UK and the EU

I was chatting with a 17 year old lad who helps me on jobs occasionally. We were talking about the EU Referendum which is due to take place in June. He said we should vote to stay in because it is safer.  He couldn't understand why I'd be anti-European and want to leave. I remember life in the UK pre-EU membership, in fact I voted in 1975 in support of the UK  joining the Common Market. I've worked in many European countries and have worked for European companies. I'm not anti-Europe.

I was able to to explain my support of an exit vote quite simply. I asked him: "Do you want to be governed by people you have elected? Or, do you want to be governed by people, unelected in this country and who have no direct interest in our welfare?"
