Yes, I am anti-Europe, and I oppose most of your posts as being utterly stupid.

There may be a light at the end of the tunnel, with Britain leaving the EU, and the whole thing collapsing, and you, you keep flying the EU flag! Europe don't work. All you dreams of amalgamating countries are ending up in smoke.

I have noticed that in several countries on the continent, people start to tape over that flag on their car number plate!

1.EU not work because is not common State.

2.The only way to UK to not dissolve in many pieces, is EU to become common State.

Stupid as ever.

There is no common state because people don't want one in Europe, and even less in UK!

Dissolution is better than being forced to live together!

but if Scrotland goes independent , and THEN the EU collapses, how will they support themselves? at present they rely on huge "Handoots" and "Take awa's" from the English.

Yes, if that is their wish!

Nations are supposed to be independent.

They may work together, but still be independent.
