I used to believe that the EU would make a better job than the UK government of running this country. In the 1980s I was in such despair I secretly hoped that the EU's powers would gradually emasculate the Thatcher government, but now I don't think that would be a good idea. At the moment I'm reading "Adults In The Room" by Yanis Varoufakis. It's worth checking out to see how the EU suppressed the socialist uprising there. I'm fed up of this country being run by people who are pretty much unelected and then cling to power with all the might of the establishment. Brown, Cameron, Clegg, May - none of them had a legitimate mandate and neither does the EU.

BTW, I'm not saying that the people of Dudley are not racist. I also grew up in the Midlands in the 1970s and I witnessed people running through the town centre with NF banners. I myself was frequently tormented and beaten up by gangs of English black kids at junior school and I remember being followed through town by an unknown person chanting in a low voice "Me no like the white man" in the early 1980s. So I know it can be fucking scary. It's just that I know there is just as much racism in Europe - don't make it out to be a paragon of virtue just because it's not Britain.
We're no more racist than anyone else.
