Thread: Will the EU disintegrate in the next twenty years

  1. #1
    I thought I would start a more political thread.

    I was in favour of Brexit and I still am today.I took the view that our sovereignty was under threat
    by the ever increasing integration of the EU. Remember the Veto is being removed so that means
    if we had stayed in the EU laws could be imposed upon us which could damage our economy or are
    not appropriate to the situation and our foreign policy here in the UK.

    So are you in favour of Scottish independence? Irish? They could all pretty much make the same point about remaining in the UK.

    I think you'll find we had a veto on the veto being removed...

    Not that it matters now, as this country has gone down the shitter, bother figuratively and literally.

    Oh ps, you're an idiot.

    Nationalism always results in some type of tyranny. Doesn't matter if it presents itself as fascism or communism, it all ends in tears. Prove me wrong.

    On the other hand....



    Of course the Lennons of the World all wind up slaughtered by the would be tyrants or their agents but hey, that's not my problem.
    Respect my lack of authority.

    Not always, England has been a democracy for a long time and there are checks and balances build into our System. For example Germany is relatively new Country so democracy was unstable. The extreme terms imposed upon Germany mainly by the French after the first world war directly led to Hitler rising to power who was democratically voted into power.
