The Le Monde article does not make that argument.

that in the other EU member states there is (minority groups notwithstanding, miner) no great appetite to leave the EU - Brexit is not striking a chord.


I would want the EU to continue. I do not see that the Brexit vote can properly be taken as an expression of any desire otherwise. Is the article setting up a straw man?

miner has made it clear that he wants to see the break up of the EU.

And no, it is not.

Bollocks it is! They must be dreaming. The UK's departure is depriving it of one of its major contributors to its coffers, and with full justification.

It is the quality of your evidence that really carries the argument every time. I cannot speak for anyone else, but it is this that has me so thoroughly convinced.
Take me to your lizard...

The EU is in such a mess and is so out of control that the only solution is its dismantling in its present form. IT may happen naturally anyway. My own personal belief is that most of the member countries want and need to regain control of their own destinies,as they are sick of being ruled by unelected goons in Brussels. The ultimate outcome seems likely that a revised form of Europe as an ECONOMIC Community will emerge. The chickens will come home to roost, eventually.

It'll be interesting to see what the forthcoming elections in Italy, the Netherlands, France and Germany in the course of the next 9 months produce, and whether Italy and Greece will be forced to exit From the EUROzone.

If the peoples of Europe do wish to join together, then best of luck to them.
The EU would have been better if it had stuck to Economic co-operation, but as long as we leave I cannot see that we have any place to pontificate about what they should do after we leave,

If the unelected Brussels champagne socialists had not transformed the EEC into the EU, we''d still be in it.

And as long as we are a member and are paying into that Club of Iniquity we are entitled have our opinions heard by those clowns where they like it or not.

Once we leave, .... Sod 'em all on their sinking ship.

Not at all. There is a real and substantial need to foster a proper friendly and supportive relationship with Europe.

Seriously, I agree with you wholeheartedly and that is the only way forward from the UK's perspective. We'll be on the outside, pissing in.

What I meant was that the EU hierarchy will no longer be able to rely on the UK's worthwhile input in its (Limited) future, so sod 'em.

My guess is that we will command more respect from being outside than those clowns ever accorded us from inside.

Jean-Claude Junket and his sycophantic sidekicks will find that their days are numbered.
