It's blind nationalism that's halting the natural progress of humanity on this matter.
People declaring their allegiance to a particular patch of dirt, regardless of how green the grass is on the other piece of dirt.
A federal Europe is a huge step in the right direction, and if the UK stopped jumping on the anti-European bandwagon (a clever ploy by Cameron and Co to blame their own moronic financial disasters on), we could have a pretty strong voice in it's inception rather than leaving it all in the hands of the Germans, the Dutch, the Belgians and the French.
Hopefully the extra funding the European Southern Observatory is getting to build the E-ELT in Chile will prove why unity is always a better option than dissension.
