Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
I think most of the Brexiteers on here have been quite clear that the Single Market, in and of itself, was not necessarily a bad thing. The problem we saw (and continued to foresee) was the steady mission creep toward the centralised control of the whole European area.

That is certainly my view. As a trading block the EU makes some kind o fsense, but the shambles that is the CAP exposes fundamental flaws, as is an inability to react in a timely fashion. And auditing is not a part of the EU lexicon.

I think it has gone far beyond mission creep. Majority voting is progressing nicely and is the stated aim for all aspects of legislation.
It is the stated aim to have a common foreign policy.
Armed forces peacekeeping missions are already EU badged.
