Dear Mr. Sharma,I will let you know if I get a response.
Perusing the Pink Book 2010 (see http://www.statistics.gov.uk/statbase/product.asp?vlnk=1140) I notice that the net transfer of money from the UK to the EU institutions is £5,365,000,000 (section 5.1 Current Transfers, p, 80). Given that in 2009 we had a deficit of £32,000,000,000 (Figure 1.3, Trade in goods and service, p. 24) in trade in goods and services with the EU countries would you be so kind as to explain to me in simple terms why we remain a member of the EU? What benefit are we receiving for the £5,365,000,000 membership fee?
