Besides Brexit, the other huge problem we have to deal with is that mentally deranged lunatic Corbyn.God help us all, if by some corruption or fluke he somehow manages to get the keys to No.10.
lol... i will be singing the red flag myself but at least we can laugh about our differences. i fully expect at any moment this whole question will go from a bit of harmless conversation to full on war like we saw yesterday on here
@wankiam Within this wonderful world in which we live, there are certain times when one has to agree to differ, this being one of them.May I thank you though for keeping this totally respectful.
indeed and no need to thank me because that was exactly the point i was trying to make.
Thank you for the MHGirl.

The EU does pass regulations for the countries that are apart of it
First of all there is a restriction placed on the EU that limits what can and can't be an EU regulation. The EU must always give its member states as much flexibility as possible unless a good argument can be put forward on why something demands otherwise. As such Regulations are rare and Directives are much more common.Directives simply points out an objective and allows the nations themselves to figure out how best to accomplish it through their own means.Every country also have a lot of power to stop anything they do not like like for example how a single nation such as France can stop the UK from asking for a new extension for Brexit. As such the risk of something passing that your country do not at least support in part is basically nonexistent.
thats the rise of populism for you but its not all doom and gloom and one thing about populism is it is essentially self defeating once everyone who supported change realizes they all want different things to each other
@wankiam : It was also a type of populism that brought Hitler to power, as well as other dictators. Yes, Nazi's did lose power over time, but only after a horrific wold war.
indeed. its intersting to note that over 70percent of germans didn't want a war at all but also that whilst the eu is in need of some major reforms it has worked so far in avoiding war with in Europe since ww2 which is really what it was initially all about
@wankiam : There has been war in Europe, since ww2. Just not general war. There was fighting in Greece following ww2, in the former Yugoslavia, in Cyprus, and now in the Ukraine. And a couple of others, and maybe more I'm not thinking of, or not aware of. Prior to WW1, there had been roughly 100 years of no general war in Europe, and about 45 years of no big war in Europe.
they were outside the eu at the time so yes if you want to pick on semantics thats fine but you know what i meant im sure and its difficult see how you can include countries that were on the soviet side of the iron curtain in that
@wankiam : I was responding to your comment about populism, and not the EU.
ah ok... so to that end i wonder how much stronger its hold would be without the eu and indeed it could be argued that populism was the reason the brexit vote went the way it did
@wankiam : It's very likely that populism is the reason the Brexit vote went as it did.
Feel free to elaborate. You probably won't though
Yep expected that much. I'm sure you couldn't elaborate even if you had the balls to. Baseless insults are all you have
That's all you deserve.
You gonna keep going? Sure are wasting a lot of your oh so precious time here
