    After watching this I understand that Charles De Gaule (spelling may be wrong) was right all the time

    Churchill was right when he told de Gaulle "(the UK) must always choose the open sea, not Europe"

    The funny thing is, the UK was one of the nations pushing for the integration of these 2004 new memberstates. So the british people should first and foremost blame their own government. And the UK could always leave when further integration was discussed, however the british government always chose to stay.As for Cameron getting not enough concessions out of the EU (and the EU being stubborn), the UK already enjoyed a lot of concessions, eventually the EU had to draw a line and say "We can't giv...

    @ilunga I`m sad that Britain is leaving. Im afraid the British parlament and governament is as old as the EU`s, you know, its takes time to form a career, and the more you live the more knownledge you get, at least, supposedly. Also the European parlament is elected by the people, the european coucill in composed by the heads of states of the individual nations that were given a vote of confidence in their respective election and the european commission is apointed directly and indirectly by the coucil...

    Simple answer the political establishment ignored a large part of the uk population for far to long and where only interested in what London had to say, Most voted out to give the political establishment a kicking

    Governments in EU ignores citizens as well. We had 20 years minimal wage 320 euros a month, unpayed overtimes which are compulsory in many factories, taxes about 30-50% of wage, stupid EU laws which decimate economy - they ban us to have own agriculture, they buy our working factories and we like land haven't profit, all taxes are going to Germany, France, etc. Why we should work more than germans and have third of german salary ??? This is EU politics - making people more poor and dependent on EU !!!
