    It is truly refreshing to hear someone actually supporting the United States of Europe. Some people really want a corporate superstate and trust it to rule over them. Personally I don't trust corporates at all. I think that once people are finally prised away from their land it will be stripped bare and human beings will become like locusts flitting across the world to ravage any part that seems to be doing well.
    I don't specifically support it as such, but superstates are going to be the world ends up, likely before the end of this century.

    With the rise of superpowers like China, small countries like the UK ~ especially if we end up outside the EU ~ are going to fall into a pit of insignificance...

    I support Britain having the Euro and I support ever closer union but even I think that the UK will never adopt the Euro, there's a complete cultural difference between us and the EU so I reckon it would be a step too far.

    Your assuming that this means we have to join the EU state, i think many in the UK would prefer union with our brethren in North America and Australasia.

    Lets look closely at these "superstates". Russia is a basket case and political disaster zone, China is National Socialist (fascist), the USA has a weird political system that hugely favours corporations and lobby groups and the EU is run by an unelected Commission. Why choose? An independent UK, the globe's 5th largest economy, is in truth the best of a bad lot in the world, possibly even the hope for the future of the world, that is why there is such pressure to terminate us.
