“Just who do you think was instrumental in implementing a lot of the stupid EU rules that some now whine about so much?”
Chirac, Schroeder, Merel, and Sarkozy ring a bell...
While John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown et al. stood by, wringing their little schoolboy hands in desperation? Get real. Did you even read the article? When was the last time muzzies got a church shut down in Poland, Austria, Germany, Italy,...? I’m *not* saying the UK was *alone* in making EU rules and regulations, but it was very much complicit and instrumental to bring about the status quo. In spades, as regards its own nation.
Look no further than the UK “open borders” policy which goes way beyond that of other EU countries and is much to blame for their current woes (in the specific regard of the article topic). E.g., when the eastern European countries joined the EU a few years back, the UK Labour regime opened their borders to all comers without any restraint (unlike the other western EU countries) and claimed that only a few thousand would come. Gee, looks like it was a few millions, many of them criminals and welfare-suckers. Looks like your feet are wet and you’re looking at pyramids - you are in denial.
Blaming someone else for one’s own failure - where have we heard *that* before? (Psst - Detroit, Philidelphia, ... any inner city in the US you might come up with would be a good starting point.)
