Hahaha, yes. Because without the EU these countries would now be known as Utopia.
from the article again, becuase everybody is so caught in being followers of anti-EU sentiment. God forbid they start and think for themselves and actually ... try to find correct information, instead of mindlessly listening to the blame game.
This also fits for spain and greece, just as much as it fits for the UK.
Did anybody here even bother to read the article ? Because then you'd probably, hopefully, gain some insight and realise how textbook you are being.
So whatever, be ignorant followers and do the cliché thing of turning against the EU, like it's the big evildoer. Because UKIP and ppl like that tell you what you have to think.
As opposed to you being told what to think by the wonderfully unbiased independent and an EU official. Can't think of any reason he'd be biased
