Would be nice to fix the EU but it is unfixable. In addition to its unelected executive institution the Orwellian sounding European Commission its rubber stamping Parliament it has a record of showing contempt to the will of the people.
Its vested interests simply refuse to change it! We saw this when Cameron’s ‘renegotiation’ achieved nothing what so ever! We also saw this when EU member states had referenda results that these vested interests did not like:
(1) Nice Treaty – Irish vote 53.9% against (7 June 2001), response – wrong answer, Vote Again!
(2) Constitutional Treaty – French vote 54.9% against (29 May 2005), Dutch vote 61.5% against (1 June 2005), EU response – wrong answer, ignore result, rename Constitutional Treaty as Lisbon Treaty and try again, but don’t make the mistake of asking the people! Planned referenda in other countries – Cancelled!
(3) Lisbon Treaty – Irish result 53.2% against (12 June 2008), EU response – wrong answer, Vote Again!
(4) Greek bailout vote – result 61% against (5 July 2015), response – apply pressure on Greek government to ignore their people and impose even harsher measures to punish them for their temerity.
(5) Dutch Ukraine–European Union Association Agreement – result 61% against (6 April 2016), EU response to a clear vote against EU expansion – start the process of making Turkey a member of the EU.
(6) UK In-Out Referendum (2016 – ongoing) – propaganda campaign to demonise and mock those who want to leave, propaganda leaflet distributed to every household paid for at tax payers’ expense, Civil Servants forced to produce propaganda figures to further sway opinion – again at taxpayers expense, globalist elite mobilised for the propaganda campaign, ship in a foreign leader to add further weight to propaganda campaign…
The EU is an unreformable antidemocratic sham where ordinary people are regularly held in contempt. The EU is there to further elite interests and elite interests only!
Vote for democracy – Vote Leave! because you won’t get another chance !
