"I have never been called up. My son has never been called up. We have no Franco, Tito, Salazar or Greek colonels any more. If you join the EU you have to promise to be a democracy and to sign up to human rights rules. It works." - Steve Shaw

I reckon that you and I are about the same age somewhere between 60 and 70 so I have got news for you:

Neither of us has ever been in danger of being "Called Up" and that has nothing whatsoever to do with the EU - It does however have a great deal to do with the UK abandoning National Service.

Same goes for your son.

Franco - died of natural causes his removal had nothing to do with the EU. Same goes for Tito and Salazar.

The Greek colonels relinquished their rule due to the 1974 Turkish Invasion of Cyprus and one year later were tried for high treason and found guilty. Nothing whatsoever to do with the EU.
