OKAY, NOW WE'RE CERTAIN THE TORIES WILL FIGURE IT OUT...:

Irish most happy, Brits most unhappy with EU (Teresa K├╝chler, 12/20/05, EUOBSERVER)

Support for the EU is declining among the union's citizens, according to a new commission survey, while Europeans generally back the idea of an EU constitution and reject Turkish EU accession.

The "Autumn Standard Eurobarometer", presented on Tuesday (20 December) reveals that an average of 50 percent of European citizens consider EU membership of their country "a good thing", down from 54 percent in spring this year. [...]

Of the 25 member states, Austria and the UK appear the most eurosceptic, with just 32 percent of Austrians and 33 percent of Brits saying EU membership is a good thing for their country, followed by Latvia (36 percent), Finland (38 percent) and Sweden and Hungary (both 39 percent).

--On the other side of the scope is - again - Ireland where 86 percent of citizens claim to enjoy Brussels's treats,--

And that's why, they're enjoying Brussels' treats.

Now if they actually had to pay instead of receive.....and Brussels forced them to increase their tax structure to become more competitive......
