Brexit would be a serious risk to economic growth, G7 warns

Brexit would be a serious risk to economic growth, G7 warns | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
Britain leaving the EU would be a “serious risk to growth”, the leaders of all the G7 countries have said in a joint statement.

David Cameron and other world leaders from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United States, and Canada are meeting in Ise-Shima, Japan, for a summit this week.

Brexit was ranked alongside “escalated geopolitical conflicts, terrorism and refugee flows” as one of the main reasons global growth could be “below potential”.
britishroses's insight:
The big boys gathered together living the high life once again attempting to dictate to us what is best or not for us, they're having a laugh! The EU is a bureaucracy I want my democracy back, I want to be able to hold to account my democratically elected government, that is not going to happen within the bureaucracy and ever growing size of the EU. The world is a global world now and leaving the EU is not going to change that they will want us to continue to purchase their goods and help them to protect their borders and countries by us giving them information we have, which is by far superior to what intelligence they gather themselves.The EU doesn't want us to leave because we pay so much into their club and France and Italy will need bailing out next. The EU is holding us back with their bureaucracy, making our country unsafe doing stupid things like opening their borders welcoming people they know nothing about into the EU from areas full of terrorists instead of putting people in place to do background checks before determining if they are qualified to enter. The EU have not given us money, it's our money to begin with and for those who think we can make changes from within that are beneficial to us, sorry it is not going to happen; Cameron had to drastically water down to nothing what he originally said he would ask of the EU for him to fight for our country to stay in the EU, he asked for nothing and got even less, so clearly we don't make a difference to the EU except for the enormous amount of money they will lose, furthermore Cameron stood and told us if he did not get what he wanted he would recommend that we leave and said that we are more than capable of succeeding and growing outside of the EU; it makes me wonder what Merkel offered him! Our men and women lost their lives defending our country and for democracy, when it is gone it will be too late!
