What’s in it for us?

Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 14.23.35Much of the argument about whether to stay in the European Union turns, writes Dalrymple, on whether people

will be better or worse off if their country stays or leaves, and especially whether the country derives more benefit from its membership than it pays for.

This, he says, is undignified, since it implies that

if we get back in subsidies more than we put in, this is an argument for staying.

Perhaps this is not surprising in Western countries, where

social justice has come to mean a large proportion of the population living at the expense of the remainder of the population.
