If all was about facts and figures you were right.
But these hitler comparisons are choosen - let’s put it like that not because they are so practical and congruent with the news of the day.
In fact if england gave it’s seat to the EU it would be a honourable step away from colonialism - recognising human rights stand higher then british rights.
The most important human rights that any nation is responsible for are those of it's own citizens. Relinquishing sovereignty and world standing is an absolute betrayal of that responsibility.
I must add that you completely lost me with that comment about Colonialism. Maintaining sovereignty is unrelated to colonialism. I will say though that the effort to instill an EU is in effect colonialism on a grand scale, not of undeveloped states in chaos, but of advanced states at the pinnacle of civilization.
Colonialism. How cliche.
How many colonies do the British actually have these days? I believe the French still maintain quite a few.
Here’s a better idea. Let every European nation that invaded another sovereign European nation, without provocation, during the 20th Century sit down and STFU.
UK - wanna chime in?
