The European Union sucks. I don’t want to be a ‘European’ as I am already quite happy being British.
The EU used to be about a common trading alliance and that’s a great idea.
What happened to democracy in the EU? In the unlikely event that a country gets to vote on an important issue [like EU enlargement] it only counts if the politicians like the result. If the result doesn't fit the plan you have to keep voting until it does!
The latest improvement to the Union is to “expand the limits of the EU to the Russian border” through the Nice treaty. I’m paraphrasing a BBC news programme aired last week in the UK and the way it was presented made the whole thing sound like the winning of a war or something – very unsettling if you know your history [1812 & 1941 anyone?].
However you feel about the EU I’d be interested to know – does anybody else feel it’s all going a little bit too far?
I’d be especially interested to hear how XP-erience members in other European countries feel about this as all we’re being told in Britain is that everyone else in Europe thinks it’s a great idea!
Vive le difference!!
