"Look, any parliament anywhere has a lot of bickering going on."
Erm I dont think you understand. Not just bickering politicians without unity but crisis. Continuing, deepening, life destroying crisis. High unemployment, High youth unemployment, economic, etc and you think thats just bickering? Whats Greece? A minor hiccup? And that crisis is repeatedly highlighted every time the negotiations come around again.
"And that joke about banana rules is just that"
Joke? 6 months and/or a 5000 euro fine isnt it? I have heard funnier, thats cringe-worthy.
I dont think this conversation will go very far. You seem to have a different view of what is happening in the EU and I am uncomfortable at the glossing over of crisis as 'bickering'.
