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.

“The most important human rights that any nation is responsible for are those of it’s own citizens. “

It’s about the security council - not about british matters.
Of course if you say that the security of this planet is more british, chineese or american business... then ours. But don’t complain next time you’re alone in Helmand !

(Actually I think more of the german army should be there - how about you ?)

So I guess giving this SC seat to the EU is a smart move because up to now the brits have lived quite succesfully by the principle of ‘divide et impera’.

Especially after their former colony over the atlantic tought them modesty.

If they now decide to let have poland, the netherlands or france or germany and the UK a voice in the SC it wouldn’t hurt british interests one bit but improve the british position in europe.
