Returning the "Deluxe Brexit with MegaControl"

Under EU rules we have 2 years to return products that "do not look or work as advertised." That sounds like #Brexit to us!! – let's take it back to the shop ;)BTW, those EU consumer protections can be found here: http://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/consumers/shopping/guarantees-returns/index_en.htm

The 'EU is collapsing' claim is proving false

"The EU's going to collapse… aaaany day now" is the claim that has been pushed for years by Eurosceptics. But is it? When Marine Le Pen back-pedaled from leaving the Euro, never mind the EU, it became clear that there's evaporating interest from other nations to follow us into Brexit Wonderland. The Eurozone is roaring and "quietly outperforms the US" according to the FT, employment is rising, all 28 EU nations are seeing simultaneous growth and appetite for European identity is being rekindled. We jumped ship early, rather than helping during the tough storm. Now that the worst is cleared, we're sitting in a rowing boat, floating by the side, arms folded, looking a bit silly.

"Immigrants burden the NHS" is false

The claim that immigrants strain/burden our NHS is false. They provide the cash to boost it. There are two sides to the immigration coin – burden and money. So the real question is about who pays their way for public services. EU immigrants pay more in than they take out. They have enhanced our national coffers. Our government should have been spending this extra on public services, but they haven't.

The EU is a global platform

Nigel Farage was peddling more "EU vs global" junk in the European Parliament yesterday. It's a false dichotomy. The EU is a global platform for science and trade. The UK is not unique with our Commonwealth either; the French, Portuguese, Dutch and Spanish all have had their own colonial empires across the Americas, Africa and Asia. To think they don't have an understanding of the wider world is silly. It's only the nostalgic Brexiteers who have been nurturing stories that our own re-kindled Empire 2.0 is some superior alternative to European teamwork on the world stage.
