The agreements already in place. Or agreement other none Eu countries like Norway already have. These can all be templates, no one needs to start again.
If you can't talk about the problem, how are you ever going to even start talking about the solution?

Sorry the second EU should be Europe.

Do you mean these agreements that countries like Norway have that require them to meet EU standards on many things including free movement across borders?

Really all European counties are in the EU even if its not official. Its just the ones that opted out get more control.

Interesting graph that shows much more than half the EU members make no net contribution to the EU. In fact many of them take huge sums out:

And? I pay more in taxes than I use in public services. This is a good thing.

That we pay more into the budget than we take out is a good thing. We are a prosperous nation, we contribute to the economic development of others. Having more developed nations in the world is a good thing for us.

For the sake of perspective, the UK's net EU contribution is about 1% of general government expenditure. Source

We are 1.64 trillion in debt. That's not prosperous.

However, I don't necessarily disagree with you. But what I do disagree with is the people who don't contribute having more say (collectively) then the people who do pay.

But those who do pay generally have more money than they know what to do with whereas those who don't are generally up at the sharp end looking at where it needs to be spent.
