New ICM poll of 1,000 businesses:
52% think the EU is “failing”
54% think EU over-regulation “outweighs” the benefit of the Single Market
60% think the UK should renegotiate to reduce its involvement in the EU to free trade only
A new ICM poll of 1,000 Chief Executives, commissioned by Open Europe, finds that businesses feel that the European Union is moving in the wrong direction, and producing too much costly regulation.
The survey finds that businesses think the cost of implementing EU regulations now outweighs the benefit of the Single Market they are supposed to create. Even the businesses which do the most trade in other EU countries feel the same way.
The poll finds that by a margin of 60% to 30%, businesses would now support moves to renegotiate the existing treaties, to radically reduce the powers of the EU back to a basic free trade area.
En español: lo ha publicado El Diario Exterior: la mayoría de los empresarios británicos quieren que Gran Bretaña abandone la UE.
UPDATE: I have found this video in An Englishman’s castle. You should go and see it. Being as Eurosceptic as I have been since the European Union began -even acknowledging that for Spain in certain things perhaps it has been relatively good -especially in communications-, I am very worried about the lack of democracy within the organization. European Parliament is far from being really a Parliament where laws and decissions are taken. But if that things is bad, the almost certain Eurabization of all their policies is by far the most worrying of all the symptoms of reject of all the causes that made Western civilization as great as it is: freedom, reason and individual rights.
There has been much talk these days about the new regulation the EU wants to consider: the regulation of free vlogs, that is, blogs in which the blogger also makes videos and posts them in his/her site. Only Great Britain and Slovakia are trying to prevent EU to regulate it. Iain Dale, one the leading British bloggers posted about it some days ago. It is worth reading, really. You can also read the Bloggers Blog.
Debeis ir a ver el vídeo linkado arriba. Siempre he sido muy escéptica sobre el papel de la Unión Europea tal y como estaba siendo construida. El hecho de que el Parlamento no tome decisiones ni sea quien apruebe las leyes, le resta capacidad democrática y constituye una muestra más de la opacidad de la Unión Europea.
La última consiste en regular los vlogs, esos blogs en los que el autor postea videos caseros, exigiéndoles una licencia de emisión -como si fuera un “tele” normal-, lo que es muy peligroso porque ¿quién no ha puesto un vídeo de YouTube en su blog? Pues si esa legislación sigue adelante, deberemos tener una licencia…. 😦
