Little Englanders?
Another one posting and aiming to be as provocative and insulting as possible. This, no doubt, is in order to hide the opinions he is presenting as fact.

The power of veto is going the way of the dodo. Performing an ostrich impersonation does not make this inevitability go away.
unelected bureaucrats frame the legislation, the european parliament votes on it. Majority voting is coming whether you admit it or not.
What happens to your veto when the EU parliament accepts majority voting?
Yesterday they talked about it, tomorrow they implement it and there is nothing you can do to stop it. Next parliament will be disbanded as an anachronism-who needs a second franking machine for legislation formulated and passed elsewhere?
Clearly stated goals:
Common foreign policy
Common taxation
Common defense force
end result federalism.

Time to wake up.
This is no longer a common market- that was merely an early stepping stone. Each successive step signs away more and more sovereignty.
