    Perhaps soon enough, we will...



    Interesting, if I had one handy, I certainly would especially since I looked it up the other day to try to explain to a relative of mine that "fascism" is not "right wing politics", but rather corporatism with a tolerance for social class(as opposed to communism, which has no classes, but does have tyrants...).
    @Typhon -- don't forget the extreme nationalism with a tinge of xenophobia / racial identity politics for the Fascists.

    The Germans are getting upset that everyone doesn't want to join their party...
    That never ends well.

    Nobody is forcing you guys. At times like this I think the EU would be better off without the UK slowing everything down. If you think you'd be better off without the continent, everybody is happy

    "You guys"? That's racist.

    Europe is a failed experiment. A busted flush. Even so, "us guys" voted overwhelmingly for pro-Europe parties. Which means given the choice we'd sign up. But since "you guys" prioritise sucking up to Cameron, and Cameron prioritises winning back racist UKIP defectors, you've threatened to block our membership altogether, and he's threatened to take us all out of the whole damn shooting match. So I guess it's moot.
    So much for democracy...

    The extreme Euroskeptics remain just as powerless as they were before the elections. They will have accomplished nothing by the end of their tenure, at which time the economy - and thus people's sanity - will have recovered.

    EU integration will proceed for the betterment of all Europeans. United in Diversity.

    That's what I'm hoping.
