Remind me again of what charges to the EU managed to get through.I don't expect to convince you. Simply refuting the oft trotted out lie that the UK had no influence in the EU.
It's clearly not true
All rubbish Andy.Remind me again of what charges to the EU managed to get through.
The EU is made up of 28 member states. Each one has influence to some degree.
Influence or not you can’t get 28 member states to align themselves.
The only way to do that is to go down the federal route like America and turn nation states into member states with an over arching government.
But in response to the original thread, the EU either goes federal or collapses. Big money men like Sorros will people like Blair doing their bidding will not want to loose their money so will push the federal route.
I really think this might help you come to terms with your issues:Again, not true.
Folk have been tricked
Advantageous to who? Not to joe public in the U.K.?All rubbish Andy.
28 MS managed to sign advantageous trade deals that cover over 60% of the world's economies by GDP. That is due to reaching a consensus. The advantage being in collective bargaining power.
The 27 remaining MS have been in unanimous agreement wrt brexit, despite attempts at divide and conquer, including the distasteful backing of fascism in Hungary.
Usual misinformation Andy
However the EU parliament also has a major democratic deficit with 1 MEP representing 810k U.K. constituents whilst Malta has an MEP for every 76KThe issue is when you have member states, with the same amount of say around a table, when actually they are probably smaller in population/ GDP etc than Manchester / Birmingham, or even for that matter Bristol.
Maybe if they had, on expansion adopted a model similar to the UN Security Council with some permanent members (those with biggest population and/or GDP), plus the others rotating in and out on a 6 month/ yearly basis. You could perhaps group Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg into one group etc etc.
The U.K. is under continual boundary changes.Why the deficit where elected representatives represent different numbers of people in different places.
The one you were complaining about in the post I responded directly to and quoted?
Ah, so UK MPs don't represent different population densities because different geographical considerations need to be taken into account and that's just something the nasty EU does, even though it's explicitly an organisation of member states and not populations.
You tell 'im.Ah, so UK MPs don't represent different population densities because different geographical considerations need to be taken into account and that's just something the nasty EU does, even though it's explicitly an organisation of member states and not populations.
It's all so clear to me now.
Well we fought several hot wars to protect Europe from France and then Germany, and a cold war to protect it from the Soviet Union, so I suppose we'll have to sort this problem out as well.
The key word in their report is 'could', as in we're going to assume despite having no evidence, oh look this assumption comes up with result we'd like to publicise. Given that economists repeated fail to spot the next big problem coming along I'm as trusting of their predictive 'could's as I am of old mother Riley's tea leaves.Not really, we're already £500 million worse of per week, so a sizeable net loss, to make things worse.

Spectacular own goal, in fact
Unless 'more equal' means 'absolutely equal' it's just a synonym for 'still unequal'.Aren't we currently in the process of adjusting constituency boundaries to even up the number of people each MP represents so as to be more equal...?
