Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The UK has not prospered since 1973
That's not really true. All but 7 years in that period have seen GDP growth. The 7 years that didn't were affected by:

74/75 - Fallout of the miners' strike and downfall of Heath Government.
80/81 - Huge unemployment and high oil prices
90/91 - Ongoing fallout of Black Monday and Iraq war
08/09 - US / World Financial crisis

Suggesting the EU was in any way to blame for these would be incredibly disingenuous, so I know you won't try that.

The UK has outperformed the Eurozone and World in economic growth during the whole time it has been in the EU too, so again, hard to agree with your above sentiment.
