That's my problem though. The whole idea that it costs more than it provides is absolutely wrong to the point of mass insanity. It drives me mental.
No, my point of view is that the idea of an inclusive group is worth the effort of trying to make it work; even if the cost is greater on the surface.
So we should ignore trying to make it work properly?
It may cost some of your (not you bitch) precious sovereignty but in return you get a much larger market, more growth, more jobs etc. If these things aren't more important to you than some tiny portion of your flag then you sir are strange in my opinion.
The institutions to make the EU more democratic are already in place we just need to reform the politics so that it's directed in the correct way but that would mean national governments would shit there pants.
Come and get it cumslingers!
