The reason I want to leave Europe is because it is impossble for the EU to be a democracy. — Paul Mason
I assume Paul Mason meant leave EU, but otherwise, yes, it is as simple as that.
EU is not a democracy, it was never intended to be a democracy, it was not designed to be a democracy. It is a democracy-free zone.
When those say we have a pooling of sovereignty they are talking nonsense.
A pooling of sovereignty is when countries cooperate for a common aim, for example a shared defence policy, an example of which we have with Nato.
Countries did not pool sovereignty, they handed sovereignty over to the EU dictatorship.
When in Greece in January last year, Greece elected a new government, they were told by the EU that democracy did not count. For daring to challenge the EU, Greece was destroyed to set an example to other countries.
EU was established as a cartel for Big Business.
EU is pushing in secret TTIP which will remove even the fig leaf of democratic accountability, handing conrol to global corporations.
In how many countries were the citizens granted a referendum to ask if they wished to join the EU? Few, if any.
The EU is on the point of breaking up.
When UK leaves, it will collapse.
In Czech Republic, they watching closely, and will demand a referendum to leave.
Other countries will follow.
Let us replace the EU, with cooperating European countries.
And please do not confuse EU with Europe.
