The cubed root of a minority

The German MP, Axel Schafer's comment on the Irish "No" vote, “With all respect for the Irish vote, we cannot allow the huge majority of Europe to be duped by a minority of a minority of a minority,” illustrates the faults inherent in the EU machine. It wants to have respect for its members but in fact does not. When a member steps out of line, even with legal entitlement, its actions are described as being duplicitous. In the end, my guess is that the EU will abandon its policy of giving every state a blackball option and there will be a two tier Europe.

Its not even a proper federalist system - its self serving and corrupt.

The world is such a gloomy place at the moment. Nothing is going right, I feel.
So join me in my cri de coeur which is Haut Medoc.
