I was simply pointing out facts.. And easily researchable at that..
And also, as I have stated hundreds of times on this site, I dislike as much about the EU as I like about it and if some one was trying to make out
that everything it did was great, I would cut them down to size.. It just happens that recently, all my comments have gone the opposite direction..
And biggest bank robbery in history? You would be saying something different if you woke up tomorrow and your bank was illiquid and savings/deposits
gone because of a EU wide crash as a result of the EURO failing.. Would you be blaming the governments for not giving a bailout then? I think you
Also, if our countries went bankrupt, who would pay all these pensions? Amenities? Public workers? Yes, the situation would be worst than it currently
is for them now.. Thats simple economics.. But people would rather bitch about public spending cuts instead of realizing that if you live beyond your
means, you have to pay the price.. Thats also simple economics.
While I appreciate your opinion, EU politics are one of my big hobbies and I have my eye on the ball in regards them and know substantially more on
the subject than 99.999% of people on this site.. But the thing that gets me a lashback here is that I look at it objectively with no emotion or
nationalism attached.. But that kind of reasoning can be frowned upon.
