Ten European countries have joined the European Union. Now they are in, it will be interesting to observe how they cope with their membership of what
is virtually a unitary state, something that they eschewed some years ago. The increasing amount of regulations and directives that flow from Brussels
will restrict their competitiveness and inevitably lead to the same stagnation that afflicts France and Germany and the other member states
Britain is at war right now. Not with any country but with its own government. ALL of them endorse joining Europe except one, the UKIP its main
purpose is to secure withdrawal from the European Union.
If Mr Blair signs the constitution regardless of public opinion will have to surrender place at the international top table – in NATO, in the United
Nations and at the G8 summits to name but a few. Some may say that this not a bad thing but throughout recent history Britain has played an important,
sometimes vital role in world politics. The public also realises that this constitution will be a step too far down the road to federalalism.......
