Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
I have a long memory and, though you haven't posted much recently, I recall you as a person who dresses up intolerance in the gentle cloak of poetry. I suggest you remind yourself as to how what we now know as the EU originated: as a recoil against the extreme nationalism that pitched us into two world wars. And it's worked. Argue misguidedly for brexit if you like, but kindly don't argue for a return to the sort of Europe that was constantly at war with itself for centuries and that gave us the two most dreadful events in human history, and the Holocaust to boot. Shame on you.
