    When you wish to control said NATIONS in every way the ‘EU’ became an UNELECTED DICTATORSHIP. Wise up you complete lunatics. Dangerous.

    What we need is for someone to stand in front of those unelected bureaucrats and stick 2 fingers up to them and their demands and just walk away singing 'Swing Low, Sweet Chariot'

    The EU stance is one of practicality, the less disruption to their business the more they prosper and on the whole they've proved a united front with a clear plan, while our own governments attitude is give us what we want or else we'll do ourselves harm... And they say the EU is a tyrannical lot, just wait till you get Tories with no international restraints. Any and all rights seen as "unhelpful" to their backers will be Razed.

    Erm sorry to say this Europe didn’t or hasn’t kept peace in 70 yrs, you wanna know why there wasn’t a major war in Europe look mainly America’s nuclear arsenal along with the UK and France pointed at the soviets just as there’s was pointed at Europe and the US, MAD kept the fragile peace that existed Europe’s to fucking spineless and gutless to do anything, I do have one question though if they did a European wide referendum on the EU how many other countries would leave they’ve done an amazing job of not showing how millions of Europeans feel, but hey no one leaves paradise do they

    NATO has kept the peace and security of Europe NOT the EU. NATO predates it.

    Peace for 70 years in Europe.....he seems to have forgotten the Balkans, where was the EU in that little tussle, nowhere, it took NATO to step in and stop that slaughter.

    So thete you have it people. The eu will dilute nation statehood untill it becomes forgotten, an irrelevance, unless the nation is europe then you can be proud. Rejoin us and be a footnote in history. As for war when was ths last time we started a war in Europe?

    NATO keeps the peace. Those unelected bureaucrats want us to have a rotten deal as they know if we get a good one , others will follow and the gravy train will come off its rails . Lining their own pockets . If you were asked to join a club where you pay lots in. Cannot make your own rules . Cannot say who comes and goes . Others make and control your laws and spending. Ask yourself honestly, would you join ????
