Shut up everyone.
Otherwise it is down with the EU! How shall we do it? By voting for someone to sit in the EU! It is not like a handful of UKIP MEPs can smash the system from the inside.
However, today, all the new UKIP converts will be out in droves ticking UKIP boxes whilst loads of people who probably hate UKIP and might even joke about them on twitter or whatever will sit at home and do nothing.
So not voting and having UKIp get in when you actively don't like them is a stupid political stance.
Great post, huh? How did you think it went?
It is an odd world where more people who hate Europe could end up voting in the European Elections than people who like it. Although is anyone really pro-EU? It is just a thing that is there, I am utterly ambivalent towards it. Why it riles people up so much is beyond me.
I like the idea of working/travelling between nations becoming easier, and would like to see borders cease one day. I also reckon its set up so the richest member nations broadly try and help the poorest, which is good. It's helped legitimize a lot of devolution so imo has increased democracy. And it seems practical from a trade point of view.
