“I want the UK to stay in the EU, and I cannot even imagine an EU without the UK. I don’t want to imagine it,” he said.
“In particular, for us it’s not good because the UK is a partner promoting a free-market economy, much more than the southern hemisphere in Europe. [Some of these countries] want to have a more state-regulated economy, and the UK is more like us, for instance, like Holland and the northern hemisphere, so we would not be very happy to see it go.”
Mr Fuchs described Brussels as a “huge” bureaucracy that needed to be scaled back. “I fully agree with certain statements of [Prime Minister] David Cameron saying that Brussels need not be such a huge bureaucracy, with so much red tape.
“That’s quite important, I think, and we need Cameron’s help to change it.”
Why not just tell the bureaucrats to fuck off yourselves?
Or, if they insist om the bureaucracy, leave yourselves?
And if the system as a whole is always going to move toward a more statist, bureaucratic, system as a result of the inevitable compromises with said Latins, why have the organisation at all?
