Wrong.

A Common Market was acceptable to the people of Europe. It didn’t turn out to be a Common Market but a constraining Customs Union - but that’s beside the point. The idea of a common market was a popular idea ratified by referenda.

However a single state is not and never has been acceptable to the people of Europe. Whenever they’ve been asked about political unuion or fiscal union: member states have loudly said NO again and again.

The concept of the Euopean state is clearly illegitimate. The ultra-vires creation of the trappings of a European state is also illegitimate. It will fail - it is failing - because the people do not want it.

Which is why they will be careful never to ask that question again.

This is less a hijacking than a coup by some shadowy junta of bankers and unelected bureaucrats.

You are right.

Norway did not even want a common market.

The PRO EU People lied.

I have since learned.

They always do.

Cheers from Norway and Switzerland.
