    It's even more ridiculous when you consider that the vast majority of European Communist and other far-left parties are anti-EU in some shape or form.
    Yes the more militant and far left wing is as anti-EU as the right. Good point.

    I quite agree. Calling the EU an "EUSSR" betrays horrendous ignorance and lack of historical sense or sensitivity. I find this term enormously insulting to everyone who actually lived under or in terror of that regime.

    The EU should be criticised for what it is, not what it is imagined to be.
    Exactly, this is exactly right. It's especially ironic considering so many of the countries who lived under the tyranny of the USSR were the most eager to join when the EU was invented.
