The EU Has Two Choices: Listen to the People & Reform, Or Disintegrate

Confession time: I actually used to be a big proponent of the EU. I was aware of the obvious problems, but I thought the achievements (long-term peace in Europe, war between Germany and France having become unthinkable, EU aid helping make the likes of Spain and Ireland more prosperous, and EU-required reforms making Eastern European countries modernize) more than made up for the organization itself being notoriously undemocratic.

I see the European Union much as Gaitskell did; as ‘the end of a thousand years of history.’ Like it or not, the EU does have for its goal ‘ever closer union.’ All the trappings that come with it – bureaucratic legislation, loss of border control, free movement, common agricultural and fishing policies, the European Arrest Warrant, economic and monetary union – signal the dissolution of national validity. Perhaps I wouldn’t be worried about this transfer of power if the EU was remotely democratic.
