”As for 'mindless nationalism', a standard accusation of the communist theology as I recall, you might be in trouble there because the EU sees itself as becoming one nation.”

You mean, a bit like The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland that we’ve been a part of for the past ninety-seven years - a number of different countries, each with its own language and customs, joined in a socio-economic group and taking advantage of the benefits of centralised government with limited devolution, trading as a bloc, having the same currency, the same tax-structure, unlimited movement of goods and people intra-bloc, etc., etc?

The problem with that is.....what?
