Quitting Time

And now an old column from Peter Hitchens pointing out that leaving the EU won't be such a bad thing. After all Norway's still rich despite "failing" to get in in 1972 and 1994:

So would it really be so bad, Mr Blair, if Britain were seriously to consider following Norway's example? If we had done as they did in 1972, would we now be a poverty-stricken pariah, or would we be like Norway?

Perhaps you could explain what we really gain by membership? We know only too well what we have lost, and we can see clearly what Norway has managed to keep.
