    The Franco German Superstate… meanwhile the UK votes to leave, Greece bleeds, Romania and Bulgaria are denuded of most of their skilled people, Italian economy is collapsing, Poland toys with leaving, Hungary refuses to admit refugees and immigrants, Neo Nazis are on the march in Austria, France, Germany, Holland and Denmark. Great organisation….

    Oh so you think it was better when Europe was divided...and the UK isolated itself from European politics...
    Let me remind you of two main events that preceded the European unity...
    You should be worried for your children and their children's future...

    Well, it is mildly divided isnt it? I have no problem with European Unity as long as we arent part of it as it stands. I cant ever see it being reformed to our tastes.

    Sheeple! It's the Irish who secretly rule the EU, that's why they refuse to agree a deal without the backstop.

    DT, you and Voicey need to read Yanis's book, Adults in the Room. A great account of the protectionist Kleptocracy and its methods. The interests of ordinary citizens were sacrificed to save German and French banks.

    Think I saw that in a bookshop but I didn't get it. Why didn't Greece leave the EU, then? Is it because being outside the protectionist cartel is much worse than being inside it? That's kind of the point of protectionism, after all.
