EURDEMOCRACY

Archives for Brexit

Several months before the UK’s advisory Brexit Referendum of 23 June 2016 took place, I wrote that any referendum would fail. The UK would remain part of the European Community system. Note I did not say the European Union. The UK agreed by its 1975 obligatory referendum to be part of the Customs Union system… » read more

President Trump told UK Prime Minister Theresa May that the UK should sue the European Union rather than exit it. Mrs May said this was a too “brutal” solution. Why? It would disrupt Westminister as well as Brussels. Sue the European Union for what? One obvious case would be to attack in law the Spitzenkandidat… » read more

Mr David Davis got it wrong. The UK Brexit Secretary of State resigned because, he said, the UK Parliament’s voice in European and global trade policy was “illusory“.

Bizarre! Brexit is based on an advisory referendum on a bizarre question, not one that legally requires UK government action. Because it was so bizarre in failing to repair the ‘democratic deficit‘ of Brussels, many who supported remaining inside European democratic institutions did not vote!   Doubly bizarre! UK’s exit from the EU is based… » read more

Why did Prime Minister Theresa May fly all the way to Italy to shoo the pigeons? Why did she speak briefly in what was a few days earlier an empty and dusty, abandoned room? It was indistinguishable from any other. It was allegedly inhabited only by pigeons. Did she come only to ask for a… » read more

UK Prime Minister Theresa May will travel to Florence on 22 September to deliver a speech on Brexit and Europe. Why? Florence, the city of the de’Medicis, Leonardo da Vinci, is recognized as the city of the Renaissance and the New Learning. That provided the start for a half-millennium rise of European culture, science, technology… » read more
