The EU and the UK - One Opinion

We do not agree with everything written below, but we think it is an interesting perspective on the EU and the UK:

The blog Bubba-Gump writes:

"Britain has one of the largest proportions of anti-Europeans in the EU (here they're called 'little-Englanders')...

The little-Englanders have no actual arguments, nothing that they can back up, nothing justifiable. They think that the only reason we no longer have an empire is because Tony Blair signed it away in 1999, they think that British Supremacy is the wave of the future and that it's 1789 not 2005. Quite a few things happened in those 216 years.

With a capitalist, extreme right wing superpower across the Atlantic (the US), a communist extreme left wing superpower emerging on the other side of the continent (China) as well as India and a Russia that's slowly eeking back to totalitarianism, it would strike most people as common sense that the 25 nations that share our values (a balance between state safety-nets, optional private alternatives and a commitment to social justice) and just happen to constitute the world's largest economy should band together. Problem is, a lot people in Britain don't see the EU for what it is; an opportunity to use that clout to enforce slightly fairer values than those proposed by the other superpowers.
