Should the UK be part of the EU ?

Extracts from this document...


Should the UK be part of the EU ? The European Union, or European Community (EEC) as it was known then, was established in 1957. It was created to look at the economy of some of the countries in Europe after the Second World War had dramatically crippled it. The committee was set up so that it would be easier for the countries to trade without too much trouble. This was called the common market. It was also set up so that there would be a lasting reconciliation between France and Germany (because obviously Germany was the 'enemy'.) Another reason why it was set up was to develop some kind of political union so that there would be less change on a World War Three.

Investment also encourages businesses to compete. Economically the EU spreads its wealth evenly.

I think that the UK should be part of the EU because overall it is a good thing because it making it easier for people to travel and trade abroad and keeps the countries in the EU in contact so it will prevent wars within Europe there is a few problems with the EU rules and some of its aims aren't that good for the people of the UK but the problems are solvable and properly will be in a few years. The best reason for join the EU is that it is trying to prevent global warming, which is going to be a major problem in years to come and trying to prevent this is key if we want to carry on with life the way we do today. ...read more.
