It is worth investigating the underlying narrative and motivations involved in that democratic vote... lies, propaganda and paranoia. Not a great form of democracy.No, I never said that. We are leaving because we had a democratic vote.
However, the off shoot of that is the UK's standards are higher, in this particular requirement*, than the EU's. The EU's response was to whine, instead of protecting its population by raising its standards to meet the UK's more stringent requirements.
I think there was talk of a legal challenge.
*And I suspect many more requirements!
Anyway...can you point me towards that story about EU "whining" because UK requirements were too tough?
