Well we've got step one of plunging ourselves into financial armageddon off to a tee.
Now all we have to do is to pretend the EDL have a legitimate grievance whilst ennacting isolationist policies and we're halfway there. I love it when a plan comes together.
Its comfortingly always 1945 in Dailymailland, isn't it?
Ermmm we? More like as bobo suggests its the very weak countries who flocked to join the EU gravey train and were allowed to who are responsable for this! Oh and add in these so called "market" people who are busy building their own coffins when the mess is finally sorted out and legislation and red tape hits them like a tornado.
Our GDP is closer to Italy's than either France or Germany's, who for clarities sake are both higher than ours. Indeed, it is closer to Brazil's. Who have a huge disparity between rich and poor. Is that what you would like to see here?
We can't go on kidding ourselves that we can maintain our standard of living for the majority (and that means just about everyone posting on this here forum) by having less not more Europe. We can't compete with the BRIC countries on a like-for-like footing. Its folly.
We will be giving money to the IMF to give to Europe via the back door, despite the vehement denials, because we are desperately reliable on Europe. Just like we gave money to Ireland, to save our own skin. Because we are a part of the problem. We can be a part of the solution, my homeless friend, but its going to require a real change of heart by some. Come on hoboh, I know you can do it.
Oh I could do the way we were told the common market (as it was once known) would work. Common trading policys, fair trade within the "market place" etc, it's the United State of Europe with a Fedral type Gov I'm totally against.
We, France, Germany, Italy, Spain etc will never have the same politics that suits each countries populus thats why closer intergration will never work, its fine as we are now talking about financial intergration but behind it follows the political bit, lets face it we in the North have enough problems getting the southerners to realise we exist in the UK now, what the hell would it be like if everything goes according to somes plan and everything is run from Bonn?
The way I see it I would rather remain a "little Englander" than a "minute European". Those that push for us deeper in Europe either know this or just don't see the wider picture, you could go as far as to say the current level of intergration as made a hell of a mess of Europe already and one shudders to think if we were linked closer what might happen the next time they bugger up!
I would like to see Europe return to the "common market" and possibly build a hy-brid financial system, like everyone for most day to day living works under their own currency and exchange rates along with a super Euro wide currency for busines to operate internationally with. Business is very good at adapting to change like this Governments and people are not.
