    EU Referendum - How will you vote?

    It doesn't get any worse than a PM pretending to do something for the British people when infact the whole thing was just a sham, with no intention of achieving never mind ability.Whats worse is some actually believe there was some intent in the first place. The guy is already working out how to perform a second vote if he doesn't get the one he wants first time. Now that is democracy for you...........

    EU Referendum - How will you vote?

    Now, the think tank Open Europe has totted up the cost to the UK economy of the most burdensome EU laws. It comes to a staggering £27.4billion a year. Among the costliest are the Working Time Directive, which costs £4.1billion a year, the various measures on energy and climate change, which cost us £3.4billion, and the Temporary Agency Workers' Directive, which gives full employment rights to temporary workers and which is costing the economy £2billion a year. Before anyone accuses Open Europe of making these figures up, they have been collected from the Government's own estimates. Needless to say, the Government also claims extravagant benefits from the laws. But these seem to be rather more spurious than the costs. EU-inspired energy and climate regulations, for example, are claimed to be earning us £20.4billion a year. This figure was based on the presumption that the rest of the world would quickly follow with similar carbon-reduction targets, giving us a head start in selling the technology. But the rest of the world has declined to pass economically damaging green regulations, with the result that many countries retain a competitive edge over Europe. If you are running an energy-intensive factory in Britain, for example, you can close it down, sell your EU carbon permits for a profit and then relocate to Asia where no permits are required. Global carbon emissions won't have reduced one jot but the cost to the UK economy is enormous. For 24 out of the 100 costliest regulations the Government's impact assessments do not even pretend that they benefit the economy in any way. Among them are the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Regulations 2013, which are calculated to cost the economy £1.5billion a year without giving us a penny in return, and the Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations 2004, which costs industry £41million a year with no measurable financial benefit whatsoever.

    EU Referendum - How will you vote?

    "Various estimates have put the percentage of British laws which now originate as EU directives - and are thereby slipped on to the statute book whether our elected representatives like them or not - at up to 80 per cent. Is it any wonder we end up with so many bad laws when over half of them are allowed to bypass democratic process. This is not to say that Parliament does not itself pass silly laws from time to time. But at least we know who to blame. We can lobby our MP before they are passed, and we can campaign for their repeal if they turn out to do more harm than good. But EU directives are dreamed up behind closed doors and by the time most of us know about them it is too late to stop them." "An undemocratic EU might have seemed a good idea to some in the Fifties but 60 years and several million pages of daft EU laws later it is beginning to grate. It is high time "...

    British shoppers are to be banned from buying eggs by the dozen under new regulations approved by the European Parliament. For the first time, eggs and *other products such as oranges and bread rolls will be sold by weight instead of by the number contained in a packet.

    EU Referendum - How will you vote?

    Thousands of passengers are being forced to hop off buses midway through journeys to comply with barmy EU laws. A Brussels ruling has banned local services longer than 30 miles to ensure drivers don’t spend too long at the wheel. As a result, drivers have to pull in as they hit that limit and order everyone off their bus. They then change the route number on the front and invite passengers to jump back on before resuming the trip. …Western Greyhound has split its Newquay to Plymouth route in three — even though it uses a single driver throughout. Passengers must buy three tickets and break their journey twice. Managing director Mark Howarth said: “It’s a farce. We have to kick customers off as soon as the driver hits the 30-mile limit. “Often it’s in the middle of nowhere. Passengers think we’re crazy.”

    Fast driving on public roads

    I wouldn't retest on the basis of a pass or fail id do it on grading.There are a few advantages to that. The first an important one would be the driver themselves would have to stop kidding themselves. The second would be the low grades or no shows could and should be hammered on insurance.That way there would be incentive for them to improve.There is absolutely nothing to stop a driver not opening a highway code book in 50 years as it stands and it shows. Many drivers hide behind safety stuff like airbags and seat belts.They will pay good money for better tyres yet NEVER give the slightest thought to going for more training. As far as im concerned,prevention is key.Having a one trick pony road safety policy,that just happenes to earn millions for private companys,is helping no one but them.

    If a slow driver pulls out of a junction and hits a vehicle,that isn't down to slow drivng,its down to the slow DRIVER. Slow drivers arnt slow drivers because they are more capable, they are slow drivers because they are often LESS capable.

    Who by your mates? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2016721/Slow-drivers-dangerous-roads-cause-crashes.html Slow drivers are one of the biggest dangers on the road and should be treated like speeders, a report says today. Nearly a third of motorists have had a 'near miss' caused by someone travelling slowly. These drivers create such frustration that six out of ten motorists feel stress rise and about half are tempted to 'undertake'. Stressful: Slow drivers cause six out of ten motorists into temptation to undertake It has led to calls for a crackdown on slow drivers including the setting of minimum limits or even ‘slow speed’ cameras. Transport Department figures show 143 accidents a year are caused directly by slow drivers. The report from insurer Confused.com coincides with the Government’s deadline today for police and councils to publish prosecution and casualty data on speed cameras to see if they do save lives or just raise cash. The report notes: ’In reaction to these slow drivers, almost half (45%) of motorists risk overtaking, thus increasing the chances of an accident.

    Thing is MOST accidents are caused at low speeds and by the slower drivers. I think there should be a war on slow dangerous drivers.They are the ones who cant drive straight and often wouldn't stand a hope in hell of passing another car never mind another test. Its time all drivers were graded so the crap ones know they are crap.How would you fare?

    Plenty more changes to come and once this vote is out of the way they will come thick and fast. Eg http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/mortgageshome/article-2747749/Accidental-landlords-set-banned-EU-2016.html From 2016 accidental landlords could be blocked
