Nick Clegg and the EU
Clegg: The UK is not going to leave the European Union. Of course not. We are inextricably wound up with Europe, we are a European nation ? Retweeted by atticvs
Interesting with loads of controversial themes in that small tweet. Centuries of harsh lessons disregarded, oceans of human tears shed completely ignored and a future stripped of any shade or grade of grey nor space left for doubt. Perhaps redeemed by that Question Mark after "nation". I have been unable to trace the quote so cannot tell whether it was inserted by the author of the tweet or the speaker/writer of the words.
I will suggest a few of the imponderables such simplistic thinking should leave in its wake. Europe ends where? Could Georgia be such a country? Is Switzerland? Should Britain leave and Portugal follow does Europe lose its westernmost end? An econmy may tempoarily become "inextricably" wound up with those of its neighbours, but a geographical entity (lete alone an island) cannot!
Clegg here proves himself totally incapable of grasping even the simplest of concepts related to reality rather than lofty concepts.
Europe is bankrupt, contemplating dismantlement of their welfare stateswith the wealthiest power openly considering revolution as a consequence. The EU is out of options, it is both broke and beyond unloved to have now become widely detested.
If that fact is unpalatable to Mr Clegg and thousands of other prospective pensioners from its corrupt reign - TOUGH!
