No it probably shouldn't.

If the EU needs structural changes to make it more representative and more competitive then Britain should work with EU countries to encourage change - instead of sniping from the sidelines.

As for the manufactured hunger for Britain to leave - its not an issue that the majority of people feel strongly about. The economy, immigration, welfare, housing, the NHS etc.., are all more pertinent topics for most people.

What anti-EU press & politicians have been very successful at, however, is persuading people that the EU is to blame for every ill that occurs in the UK.

The consensus points to most the EU folks would like the whining little Brits to pack their bags  ...

Why do you think there has been no referendum? Because the result is forgone conclusion. Britain signed up as trading partners not to become a European state ruled by an anonymous foreign power. Devious British governments since moved the goalposts without a mandate from the British people.

Britain is the third largest contributor to the EU budget  With an estimated UK population of 63.1m people, this means that every man, woman and child paid €178.65 (£144.17) towards the EU budget in 2011. They got back €104.12, meaning their net contribution was €74.53.

The EU would lose far more than Britain would if they pulled out.

It was never in Britain's interest to abandon the commonwealth and join the common market. The benefits, if any, all went to the rich, but the poor suffered immensely during the convergence period, and many still do.

In the 60's and 70's, continental Europe was rapidly growing in strength, and in a direction deemed hostile by the powers that be. The potential for a European power block, in competition with the US, was too much to bear. A huge campaign was mounted by the US to get Britain in the European Common Market. Most of the funding for the "YES" campaign during the referendum came from the US.

Britain entered the common market at the behest of the US, and to shore-up US interests. Britain as the agent within was able, with the collusion of the media, to maintain Europe at arm's length within the British public, and frustrate any meaningful drive towards EU integration. Any policies that would benefit the average Brit, were either vetoed or opted out of, so the public remained hostile. Moreover the media blamed all the ills befalling Britain on EU policy, to maintain the hostility. A referendum on membership was always promised, but never materialized, as the outcome was a forgone conclusion. Successive governments betrayed the British public, for the interests of the powers that be.

It beggars belief how the EU leaders could have been so stupid, and the British public so gullible.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.
