Britian's bull dog spirit got them into this mess i doubt it is going to get them out of it. I think ireland(government leadership) tried to get a quick punch in at britain cause britian is unpopular in the club, then i would say britian will remember it and "maul" us down the road later on. It's not the time to take cheap shots are you listening to me Kenny?
It's a bloody shame that Britain has never engaged fully with the EU.
Because if they had the EU would have evolved differently.
And if they'd joined the €uro it would have been a completely different currency.
Britain alienating herself further from the EU is not good news for us.
It will give the Franco/German alliance even more dominance...
Mainland Europeans seem to have a very different idea of what Europe should be like and don't seem too bothered about losing all sorts of sovereignty.
Of course part of the explanation for this is that they were all colonisers in the past... Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Spain etc.
They've all colonised and dominated others... and possibly don't trust themselves now to behave without deeper integration etc.
But we in Ireland haven't been colonisers. We've been colonised - and have only had independence for less than 100 years...
...which is part of the reason I totally resent the assumption by mainland Europeans that we should rubber stamp their poxy project constantly - and why I increasingly despise Europhiles here who are so eager to oblige...
Cameron is only posing to keep at few of the anti EU nutters onside
Wait a few days and he will be like an EU PUPPY again
He knows who is paying British taxes - the City
(and they rely on the EU for their income)
