Where aviation is concerned having standard rules is a good thingThey are rule takers and subject to the ECJ. We can have the same arrangements
My objection to EASA has never been the rules but how they are implemented and the body itself
Each nation could have signed up to a standardised set of rules etc and own authourities enforced - im not sure EASA as an EU function was anything other than a power grab much like the Euro - processes put in place to force an EU state.
You cannot have a currency union without a political union - look at how now the EU is imposing its will over Italy and before that Spain - because of the threat to the Euro.
The EU is being built arse about face because the idealogues are trying to create a situation where union is inevitable despite opposition.
This is wher most opposition comes from its not anti EU its anti this EU - Mrs L is all in favour of an EU but one built from the ground up to be that and working towards it honestly.
Im not opposed but I see one or 2 issues related to full union - that concern me.
