Yes there is. Reproduced below.







It's, generally speaking, very complex.

The EU and Europeans in general ignore just how tenacious and bloody-minded we British can be when placed under pressure.

I have and am in touch with numerous (non-British) long-term friends and contacts in continental Europe. What surprises me is that they simply cannot understand how we in Britain could even contemplate surviving without being tied to the apron-strings of the EU. They have been brainwashed by the EU for decades into believing that the EU is needed to allow them to exist.

Basically, Europeans have accepted the gradual withdrawal by the overbearing Brussels hierarchy of their fundamental democracy. The UK has not done so. The UK will not allow itself to do so.

The EU has been accustomed to using bullying and control for getting its own way. It cannot now face up to the reality that it is rapidly losing control and that there's no-one else much left for them to bully.

The Brussels hierarchy has transformed the European Parliament is something of an irrelevancy. The sad reality is that the EU is now run by an unelected Politburo. At least the former USSR made no real secret of how it was run, unlike the current "EUSSR".

I have just encountered a new word: Brexosceptic.

Yep, I like it.

(Sorry if that offends any sensitive soul reading this).

I suppose that is one way of killing a discussion.

A mercy killing I suspect.
