Its already customs/debt/political union at this point
Yes - that's why we want to get out. A customs union is not what the British people originally understood by the term 'Common Market'. This is why a referendum is sorely needed: we want off the Raft of the Medusa.
The EU has become an arid mercantile customs union; and it is planning to become a European Soviet. We (however) want free trade; we want no more interference from Brussels and we don't want to send any more money to the EU political class.
Well, I recently read the third amendment to Irelands constitution
(signed by Eamon de Valera in 1972, a supposed fighter for Irelands freedom), and what did I discover?the man signed an amendment that declared European law to be supreme over Irish law. What makes it even worse is that 83 percent of the sheep back then voted Yes to it. (I recall graffiti near Amiens Street Station
in Dublin that read E.E.C. No and No Common Market . . . guess the public wasnt listening then, and/or the propaganda out of RTE and BBC was just really good.)
The EU was always meant to become like the USSR, or maybe even something worse; Vladimir Bukovskys observations
were right on the money, comparing the European Parliament to the Supreme Soviet and the Commission to the Politburo, as well as all the other characteristics, but some worse (Europol having diplomatic immunity, for example). And then youve got the Eurocrats pushing European identity, which sounds too much like the USSRs concept of a Soviet people . . . and all these decades, they were let away with building it.
