The real lessons of Brexit

Back in May, the European Commission stunned the DNS community – including the company that runs the .eu registry, EURid – by announcing it would scrap 300,000 .eu domain names owned by UK residents due to the country's planned exit from the union.”

Such actions on behalf of the European Commission are a punishment for GB deciding it wanted to run its own affairs and a deterrent to anyone else who is thinking of doing the same. The fact is the EU has already split into a two-tier system with a German-France alliance running it for their own benefit and the rest take the hindmost, effectively reduced to client states of the Greater-German .. er .. Europe. The treatment Greece has received since joining the EU being a typical example.
