I’m not sure which of the trio is the problem but the combination definitely doesn’t engender joy.
At which point I think I can boil down into a nutshell by basic objection to the European Union. I’m pretty sure that, if we worked at it, we could work out how to have free trade across this delightful continent of ours, a degree of cooperation between national governments and so on without Martin Schultz having any political power over
This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,–
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
Given that that’s not the system we do have that’s why I’m agin’ it.
