    The Politics Thread

    I live in an Euro country and am pro-free market intergration (my opinion about the single currency I won't express as it's not related to the debate). Look, please you must understand I'm not trying to appear threatening or frightening how could I !? My questions arose from genuine curiosity regarding the upcoming UK vote and how the British conservatives envisage the EU, that's all My point was, and reproducing a recent slogan, UK and EU are much better together. I fear that circunstancial political motives related to Schengen, a recent surge in British radical nationalism and the mess that is the Greek crisis would lead to the UK abandoning such a decent and lucrative project.

    Yes and what will happen to that surplus (which is mainly due to the huge concentration of financial services in the City) if Britian would leave? You think they would simply stay put? What makes ou think they wouldn't spread out let's say, to Dublin, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, or............ Edinburgh....? (if you know what I mean The Commonwealth, the emerging markets, the US, all those are already trading with the EU (Britain) , under better negotiated bilateral terms because the EU negotiates them as a whole. A British exit would force a new negotiation of those terms with a significantly smaller weight both for Europe and for Britain. This referendum will be motivated by political issues (which I understand and are perfectly legitimate), yet you must realise the economic consequences of leaving vs staying which are I'm afraid closed for debate

    Hello Longnose, I take from you post your a hardline English conservative. I'm curious, regarding the upcoming UK referendem on the EU, what do you make of the economic consequences of an UK exit?That would imply UK loosing access the biggest free trade common space in the world (despite its numerous flaws respecting excessive regulation). So, how do the British Conservatives, who for centuries have been champions of free trade, envisage loosing access to the common market?
  5. I must be the only guy in the world who likes both Wenger and Mourinho ehehe, these spats are just delicious
  6. Apparently Arsenal looking for Moutinho. Would love that.
  7. Bayern also now spiking the interest for William Carvalho.
  8. Re: Official Arsenal Thread He was a great writer, if Arsenal signed him I'd donate my salary and two vital organs for the club.
  9. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Why do you say that? Welbeck is not restricted to the central forward slot, plus he was great in some games this season, better than Walcott yesterday.
  10. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Hmm yes I agree he wasn't very good, my point was there will be some great LB opportunities in the summer market, we should capitalize on that as neither Nacho nor Gibbs are good enough.
