We sell about 78 billion of goods to the EU at a cost of membership a net 9 billion. Isn't this cost likely to be more than the profit we make on the 78 billion? The 78 billion will generate a fair amount of taxation but does it equal the 9 billion we have to collect and send to the EU? If we don't make any profit from membership of EU then what is the point?

There is no free market in services so we are not paying to access it. Our total export figure includes services.

We get other benefits including subsidies in farming and access to the weight of the european courts even as individuals if we need it-fair and equal.

I used the net figure Bastian so farming subsidies etc already accounted for. The maths don't add up for Remain. It is not possible for us to gain any economic advantage from belonging to the EU.

Trade in services is apparently one of the four fundamental freedoms of the common market. So where this idea they're not covered? Do we get charged tarrifs on them?
Tax is quite high once you account for the employees as well as the services themselves.

Tom. You clearly think the answer to the question of who pays the interest to the IMF and what else it provides is interesting.... more
