Paying for Market Access

This whole logic is baffling me.

The three non-EU members, part of the European Economic Area (EEA), pay annual contributions to the EU in return for access to the bloc's internal market allowing Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway to sell their goods and services across the union.
The EU is once again asking non members to cough up, so as to be allowed access to new members Bulgaria & Romania. I know that the EU's foundation is based on this crazy idea, but having to bribe for the right to market access seems completely stupid (as well as immoral) to this extremist free marketeer.

I mean, if a Bulgarian wants to buy salted fish from Norway, why shouldn't he?

This logic is the reason why we need to destroy the EU, not just leave it.

The inflation figures are a complete lie.

With M4 at above 14% it cannot be anything else.

There is the inevitable first sign of high banking profits (money made by charging interest on money magicked/created ex-nihilo) which leads to price rises.

boring boring boring.. When will you people ever get over the conspiracy theories? Do you think they towed the UK and anchored it off the coast of France? Sorry to have to break it to you, but "nations" don't really exist, they're imaginary. Only states. I think Norway should pay for market access to Romania, if they're too selfish to share their millions (more dollar millionaires per capita in Norway than any other country), with the less well off of Central and Eastern Europe through more direct methods (i.e. EU membership..)

It's not just about free trade. It's about a better world.
