I would vote to stay out of Europe, don't get me wrong i'm not anti Europe, it's just that we are too diverse to be brought together.
As we are witnessing, economic union is practically impossible, Greece needs to get out of the Euro and return to it's own currency before it's too
late and it becomes a part of Germany.
I think where we are right now is close enough, we have economic ties but we also have currency independence and it's that currency independence that
is vital, it gives us the options to inflate,deflate and devalue at will.
It's pretty clear to us all isn't it in the current circumstances, how not joining the Euro was a wise move.
The Euro was created by France and Germany mainly to serve France and Germany.
That's the economic side of things, now lets turn to the political.
I am absolutely dead set against any further political union, Politically this union is not democratic, it seems to be a soviet union with unelected
people dictating to others, well screw that buddy, two world wars just to sleep walk into the very thing we were fighting against, i don't think
We are a sovereign state, we shall remain so as current events will prove the wisdom of looking after our own affairs far better than any speech from
Right now Europe needs us more than we need it, a clear sign that really Europe is not ready to be unified.
And ultimately, looking at history, its France and Germany that need unification to avoid conflict.
Now if Russia's offer of creating a Eurasian union were to be looked at seriously then maybe i would reconsider my choices, but a Franco-German
Europe ? no thanks.
