the people are really against this.  they have not even switched to the euro.  their economy is one of the strongest in europe and they are concerned about things like the open borders, and the taxes that the eu will take.  it's going to be pretty bad for them.  never mind that the eu can over rule court cases, etc.....  one big happy country!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

that's a good article.   what France and Germany could not do by war, they have done by treaty.  the Brits will cave.  the EU will simply roll over them and leave them no choice.
