The EU is a dying monster, it's out of control and will bring anyone within spitting distance down with it when it goes. The sooner we cut loose the better.


There’s a worldwide migrant crisis, probably because of climate changes as well as local politics.
Everything else is just gravy. Blaming Brussels for everything that’s gone wrong isn’t going to wash.
It’s just burying your head in the sand.

No the EU is not in crisis. Where do you get your information from?

It's a despairing cry from the far-right.

There are five recognised candidates for future membership of the European Union: Turkey (applied in 14 April 1987), Macedonia (applied in 22 March 2004), Montenegro (applied in 2008), Albania (applied in 2009), and Serbia (applied in 2009). All except Albania and Macedonia have started accession negotiations.

Turkey are, of course, very unlikely to be accepted.

In 2014 the EU signed Association Agreements with Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, and the European Parliament passed a resolution recognising the "European perspective" of all three countries.

Expansion is the order of the day - far from the imminent collapse the EU opponents (notably Russia and USA) would love to see, for differing reasons.

It seems that a deal has been struck on Greek debt relief by European leaders, heralding the end of the eight-year bailout effort which followed the financial crisis.

The country is set to exit from its bailout programmes in August this year, and it will no longer receive new funds from outside sources.

More bad news for the naysayers.

I bet everyone in the EU is quaking with anticipation and joy at the thought of those mighty economies joining the EU. More bloodsuckers and yet another wave of transcient economic migrants free to suck the life out of the job markets of the west, just the way the slave masters of the EU want it.

Because the naysayers, Russia, USA, Brexiteers - are united in wanting Greece to crash out of the EU. They have similarly targeted Spain (who now enjoy far better growth than the UK) and have also moved on to Italy as their 'great white hope' to smash a united Europe. They all have different reasons, but wish for the same outcome.

But only we have decided that the land of unicorns and fairy dust sounds worth voting for.... And so it will remain.

The UK financial system has the highest exposure to foreign debt in the G7…
Consumer debt is expected to reach 150% of GDP by next year…
We have the highest “risky assets” ratio of any G7 nation…
And we have the least resilient financial system in the UK, according to the New Economics Foundation.

Why do Brexiteers have this obsession with the EU being destroyed and other countries leaving?

Because they have no faith in the institution after decades of it working mostly well and being brainwashed by people who are their idea of clever people. The same people are hoping for a referendum about joining the US dollar.

Biggest bankruptcy in history is drawing closer.
I reckon it will collapse before the end of the year.
In fact before the end of .... October.
