BWI Video: The 'EU Referendum'

Beach Walk Insights - Volume 2, Issue 17 - Play time 3m 45s

It's been a month since the General Election here in the UK and now that the right wing party, the Conservatives, have taken office, the current topic is the EU 'In/Out Referendum'.

I want to make my views on this clear:

The UK's membership (or not) of the EU is a party political issue. The Conservative party has some strong, right wing members who don't want the UK to be a member of the EU. The Conservative party is offering a referendum to appease these out-dated trouble makers. It's a simple as that.

So I ask those of you living in other EU countries not give up on us - those Brits who want us to leave the EU are, in my opinion, a bunch of 'out-dated nutters'. I ask all business owners in the UK to make their voices heard on this issue.

Interestingly, during the General Election campaign, the CEO of Siemens UK was one of the few business people to speak out and make his voice clearly heard on the whole immigration/EU referendum issue. He was clearly in favour of the UK remaining part of the EU.

What do you think?
