Talking Europe

Britain and the EU: Should it stay or should it go?

Should they stay or should they go? For the first time, opinion polls show more Britons willing to opt out of the EU than stay in. Eurosceptics say a Brexit would save British taxpayers billions and improve the country's economy. Europhiles, meanwhile, argue that the economic uncertainty would cost the UK thousands, possibly millions, of jobs. Prime Minister David Cameron was re-elected with a promise to reform Britain’s position in the EU and put its membership to a public vote.
