I believe many people fought in the war to keep our sovereignty and freedom and i don't believe the EU holds up these values, this article is so ****ing stupid
Can you explain how being a member of the EU removes Parliamentary sovereignty and personal freedoms? You will also need to show how leaving the EU will increase these.
Your answers will have to apply to the majority of ordinary working people rather than just a select elite.
Thanks.

I love that they are trying to dictate how people behave, think and feel, and then talk about the tyranny that we fought during the war - this level of control and manipulation is probably why a lot of people chose to leave. The EU is a very flawed and self-serving body and Europe is about more than that.

I mean in terms of pro/anti EU stance. The Guardian looks like a haven of balance in comparison.

With all the talk about NATO breaking up and Russia expanding its influence in Europe is it so difficult to imagine a scenario in which states are pitted against each other?

Germany is seriously considering such eventualities in its recent policy document, Strategic Perspective 2040:

People still peddling this line about the EU being a force for preventing war?

That was part of the early remit of the EEC, which bears no resemblance whatsoever to the EU. The real hallmarks of the European project have been increasing supranational political power and spending an awful lot of money on farming subsidies. That's a far cry from preventing war by fiddling with the steel and coal industries - and didn't even include us.

The real start of the EU was Maastricht - and what happened straight after that? Genocide in the Balkans, which the EU failed utterly to do anything about on its own doorstep.

It comes to something when a national newspaper is that desperate to get headlines that they put up an article like this which is full of inaccuracies and just rambles. Does the idiot that wrote it have any literary merits? He obviously has no literary morals. Pound of flesh for the trashy article sir?
