Even the French are dissatisfied with the EU, and they seem to gain more than most.
Cant say I blame the French or any others contemplating leaving. Its a huge overblown, overly expensive, unnecessary bureaucracy.

Government by committee.....27 countries to agree before anything goes thru...

Unless the EU become the United States of Europe, it will always be a lumbering giant. Europe is so diverse, I can't see that happening. As said the EEC has brought quite a lot of good to us all, it really should have stopped there.

As for Brexit, can anyone see a realistic solution to the Irish border. It's between a rock and a hard place......

I'm neither for nor against, but the only solution I can see is either a hard border or unification.

It’s ridiculous to be stumbling over this stupid border, why can’t they just sort it out like adults instead of faffing about like this. Still we mustn’t forget its NI and they can’t govern themselves over some ridiculous green energy scheme that stemmed from people abusing the scheme. Eejits as they might say.

Jim, it has to be unification, its the only sensible solution.
Religion, particularly the Catholic variety, has a lot to answer for all over the world.
