The scoundrels in Brussels have sold the European people a lot of things: a single market, the euro, the lifting of many border controls and, most recently, a binding global climate policy. These have all been good things, and they have helped make Europe an eminently livable continent. Despite the many dull moments and emotions that have been negative at best, the end result has been laudable.
Most of these improvements would have been held up, if not outright prevented, by referendums. Democracy doesn\’t mean having unlimited confidence in citizens. Sometimes the big picture is in better hands when politicians are running it, and a big picture takes time.
Don\’t worry your pretty little heads, just let the rulers get on with the ruling. Never mind what you want, it\’s all for the best, eh?
