It's to inspire people like you to have "fury" and "outrage" for even the pettiest of things (presuming the issue the be "outraged" over even exists in the first place, which, in the case of British tabloids, isn't always the case).

So when and if we brexit which UK institutions are going to benefit from the NETT contribution.
We already know its not going to be the NHS etc.
Where will the savings go, ?
Nissan , Ford in fact any company that needs support to compete in the EU.

That is for the Democratically elected British Govt to decide when the time comes.

Wild negative remoaner speculation is totally pointless.

The party is democratically elected. The government is assembled by the PM. What do you feel about the government cutting deals without consulting the democratically elected Parliament? We don't vote for the PM remember? We vote for local MPs to represent our interests. How do they do that if they are not consulted?

A few years ago May wrote a paper in which she said that any decisions regarding the UK relationship with the EU should be put to Parliament.
Decisions of such importance should not be made by government alone.

Here's an idea; perhaps it would be "democratic" if we waited until we have a "Democratically elected British Govt". But maybe not.

Here we go again How payments to the EU are calculated

Each country's payment is divided into three parts: a fixed percentage of gross national income (GNI), customs duties collected on behalf of the EU (known as "traditional own resources") and a percentage of VAT income.

The GNI-based contribution is the largest part of each country's payment and is set each year by the EU to balance the budget.

There is one other important part of the revenue calculations: the UK rebate, which returns to the UK two-thirds of its payments.

This rebate is paid for by the other 26 countries as a fixed amount of their gross national income.
The reason the UK's payments are going up is because in the last financial year the UK economy has done better than expected, the UK collected more customs duties from non-EU imports, or raised more VAT. Likely a combination of the above.

You're joking, right?

We only actually elect MP's, every 5yrs. The leader (elected by party members) of the party with the most MP's is invited to form a government (by an unelected monarch).

The Prime Minister chooses their cabinet from their party's MP's, none of which has to have any experience of their Ministry's area of expertise. In many cases, it's a case of a cabinet position for those who support the PM.

The PM was also previously responsible for proposing candidates to the House of Lords, before the formation of the (unelected) Lords Appointment Commission.

Yet the EU is undemocratic because each PM nominates an EU Commissioner (who is confirmed (or not) by MEP's), each member state's PM (or relevant cabinet minister) represents that country on the EU Council of Ministers, and MEP's are elected every 5yrs.

There really isn't that much difference between UK democracy, and the EU's. And the UK is well-represented in the latter.

Wild negative remoaner speculation is totally pointless.
And Fred was commenting about us insulting Leavers...... Pot, kettle, black.

Would that be a Government formed by a party with a sizeable majority composed of MP's who were elected by a majority of their electorate and not just those with the largest vote in a constituency?

An overall majority of 10 is hardly sizeable.

Yet you still can't resist a dig at EMR.

It doesn't matter when it started, who started it, or why. This is TIO, and shit happens. There's a note on the forum front page which says,

Take it Outside!
Please keep all political, religious and other controversial topics in here. The discussions may become heated, so enter at your own risk!
If Leavers want to keep up the insults, name-calling and sly digs, carry on, but don't then whine when it's done by Remainers.

I was going to make a sarky comment here, but that would be hypocritical of me.

We already have.

If a govt alters policies or doesn't live up to its promises then the electorate have the option to throw them out.

Shame the same option doesn't apply to the Eu.
