Subject: RE: BS: To Br/Exit Or Not To Br/Exit
The reforms the EU primarily needs are not "the EU rules regarding the UK". What would be good would be changes to the role of MEPs and the commissioners, and to the way legislation is initiated and agreed and modified - more clearly democratic institutions. And the arrangements about the banking system and so forth. And the way trade treaties such as TTTP get negotiated, and excessive and innappropriate secrecy.

Work in trying to get those changes has hardly started. And the prime movers in getting those kind of things won't be national governments, it will be transnational alliances of political movements.
