They took us into the EU in 1973 without referendum. Only after public pressure they allow one in 1975.

To vote in this referendum you needed to be born before 1954. You need to be over 64.

In 2016 in the UK, 18% of people were aged 65 and over, and 2.4% were aged 85 and over.

Quote:
In accordance with the Act, the European Communities membership referendum took place on Thursday 5 June 1975, and voters approved continued EC/EEC membership by 67% to 33% on a national turnout of 64%


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Referendum_Act_1975

Since voter turnout for the under 30's was always low and not everyone voted to join, its around 5% of the population alive today voted in favor of joining the EU.

Perhaps of they did, the result would have been to stay. Instead, they just voted out on the back of lies written on a bus, and Daily Mail scare mongering.

Turkeys voting for Christmas.

You give the bus companies and the Daily Mail too much credit.. have you forgotten the forecast of the end of days from those campaigning to stay in the EU?

People vote on what affects them.. those that live inland, didn’t vote to leave for the sake of the British fishing fleet... though there was a large leave vote from areas where immigration affects their lives, such as Boston in Lincolnshire..

Brexit hasn't happened yet. After a year there is still no idea what shape it is going to take. Businesses are busy in the background making their plans to set up elsewhere in Europe.

Still, I suppose we can all eat fish and nothing else.

That is perhaps the key reason why the country has become more Eurosceptic. Even now, after four years of low-to-no growth, we are a more economically confident nation than we were in the 1970s. For Britain, continental Europe no longer looks like a model to follow. Delors-style regulation has on the whole produced fewer jobs and lower growth than British-style deregulation. Throughout the past decade, as the EU charged on blindly expanding its powers, even “good Europeans” such as Ireland, the Netherlands and even France started rejecting its treaties and constitutions in referendums.

That was from 2012. [adrian.gif]

Makes me laugh all the scaremongering I read in the British press. Yesterday it was driving licenses not being valid in Europe and youd have to apply for special permission if you want to drive through France. I mean to say, british driving licenses are valid in every country in the world and now all of a sudden Europes going to ban you :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Todays funny story is RyanAir boss threatening to ground his planes to teach you all a lesson and he'll not be happy until he forces everyone to vote the way he wants you to. The blokes an idiot if he thinks that's going to work.

It just goes to show though that while the remainers persist in claiming the british public were lied to they're pretty good at conjuring up a few lies and tricks themselves.

If RyanAir refuse to fly who cares [shrug65465.gif]
Low cost airlines are 10 a penny these days. [rofl02.gif]

After Donald Tusk said he wants to allow banks accesses to eu market in return for fishing rights :rolleyes:
The EU got no idea on the mood of the UK public. We hate the banks and the EU controlling fish prices within the UK is unbelievable [9n5.gif]
