    CFC is a kind, gentle, loving place, where even Finns can come and, in OT, discuss their opinions.
    I will be very glad to infect him with my Englishness.

    Yes, let's ignore reality because you don't like it. The BBC article I posted is just the tip of the iceberg - UK is definitely the single most eurosceptic nation in Europe, it doesn't share the paradigm of EU integration with the remaining EU states.

    If the EU membership is such a burder as your people think, I am asking why the heck are you staying? To make the rest miserable, to prevent the EU from uniting more (as "Yes Minister" suggests :lol: )?

    Again your blinkered perception of Britain seems to come mainly from a television satire without much idea about the range of opinions in the UK about the EU. While it is true that a majority (including myself) are sceptical about the running of the EP and what we actually get from it, 2/3 of us would not favour a withdrawal from the EU but are not quite ready to embrace the Euro yet. That does not mean that Britain is generally anti-Europe in the way you misrepresent us. Gross exagerrations based on comic satires and deliberate distortions of the truth will do little to make your case or encourage sceptics in this country from altering their perceptions.

    Why don't you guys keep the EU the way it is and for those of you wanting tighter integration/federalism, start up a whole new entity independent of the EU. Call it, oh, I don't know, Germania or Greater Gaul or something.

    As much as I hate them, the BNP is hardly facist. I mean, their leader aint much of a looker. In fact, he looks like a Bond villain.

    Sorry to disappoint you but, like Gordon Brown, he only HAS one eye that works. Didn't you know that?

    ... why doesn't the UK simply pull out of the EU. It obviously hates it. I guess the powerful interests in that country don't want that.
