A happy Brexit? We should rather brace ourselves for a dramatic change in our democratic freedom – for the worse
The problems lies in the fact John major and tony Blair signed us up to treaties most people do not understand; neither were they they consulted on. The treaty of Rome is out of date and must be reformed/re written. The EU is now the alternative dictatorship.. alternative to what might have been in WW”
The U.K. does not consult on every document it signs. We aren’t in Ancient Greece but a parliamentary democracy which seems beyond the basic understanding of brexit extremists . Comparing the EU to a dictatorship is plain idiotic. Poland faced a dictatorship when behind the iron curtain and was eager to join the EU. The EU is not Stalinist or a nazi state, which you would certainly know about if it was even 10percent of those things You make assertions without fact and that which is asserted without fact can be dismissed without fact too.
