Re: Bloody hell.
can it really be as bad as you say? If it is, would that not also apply to any countries nearby that aren't already in the EU? How do they survive with such self-destructive tendencies?
If you look at an atlas^h^h google maps view of Europe's political borders, you'll notice that the UK is rather larger than, say Macedonia or Andora. Bigger population, bigger economy, much larger international profile, much more of a target for terrorists, both nazi and jihadist.
