BMW, a global company is realizing it would be foolhardy putting all of its eggs in one basket, just in case the bunch of clowns led by Cameron decide to influence the population to leave the EU. Shame he doesn't allow the Scots the same privilege of leaving the UK. It is their right to choose, and if they wish to leave then it is their right. Cameron says it would be foolhardy, then by the same token its equally foolhardy for Britain to leave the EU.

It's an amusing parallel. Salmond wants fiscal control and oil revenues, while keeping the pound - the best of both worlds. Cameron wants access to European markets and finance without the bothersome social legislation and dodgy currency - the best of both worlds.
