Re: So why is Brexit the answer?

"That would involve a whole lot of politicians and civil servants having to learn some foreign languages".
Do you actually understand that the British are the ones who have the highest chance of being understood in they native language in the EU. No other country/language in the EU has that advantage, no even close. As for education, it should and could always be better but I am not all that worried about the British.
Not related to your comment at all, but I have been wondering about the Brexit people who for some reason seem to claim the UK is the fifth biggest economy in the world.
Still what I find is this list. Not that it should matter but when claims are dubious it starts to sound a bit Trumpish to say the least.
